According to an annual wedding survey carried out by top hen and stag party providers Chillisauce.com, only 33% of newlyweds have sex on their wedding night. So we’ve come up with 9 top tips to make sure you do…
1. Don’t drink excessively ~ Nerves and excitement can make it all too easy to quaff Champagne, but if you drink to excess you’ll be falling asleep before the first dance. Instead, aim to have a glass of water in between drinks, and switch to sparkling water or fruit juice by the end of the night to perk you up.
2. Luscious lingerie is never a bad idea ~ We girls are well aware of the power of sexy lingerie. It can make you feel empowered, beautiful, and it boosts your self-esteem to no end. Be sure to wear some stunning wedding lingerie under your dress so you have a constant reminder of what to look forward to – especially the look on your new husband’s face when he sees you in bed later!
3. Bat those eyelashes ~ Don’t forget to flirt with each other during the day! You don’t want to do anything outrageous – but a coy look and a whisper in his ear can work wonders. Let him know with longing looks that you can’t wait until the day is done and you’re finally alone together.
4. Reflect on your day ~ We can’t say it enough – this day is about the two of you. With all the partying, eating, photographing and conversing, it can be difficult to get a moment alone. After the party is over, avoid running straight off to the bedroom. Instead, take a moment to reflect on the day. Running through what’s just happened will make you feel even more connected with your new husband.
5. Where’s your hubby? ~ It may sound ridiculous, but it is surprisingly easy to forget about your other half during the day. Whether you’re getting ready with your bridesmaids, posing for the photographer, or chatting to friends and family, all of this can take over and cause you to neglect each other. Of course, it’s not possible to remove yourself from the wedding necessities, but be sure to go through as much of the day as possible with your husband by your side.
6. Sleep well ~ You’re sure to be full of wedding jitters, but it’s important to get your solid eight hours of sleep the night before your wedding! A good night’s rest will make sure that you are revitalized and ready to last the whole day – and night!
7. Don’t sweat the small stuff ~ Your wedding is a day you’ve been planning for months… perhaps even years. It can be easy to allow minor details to become a source of irritation or even cause an argument or a tiff with your family, friends or new husband. Keep a level head and don’t let anything ruin your day – the most important thing is that you get married to the person you love.
8. Rose petals, anyone? ~ You’ve seen it in all the movies: rose petals on the bed, candle light, romantic music and an ice bucket with Champagne. Clichéd, right? Yes, of course it is – but clichés are clichés for a reason. Setting the scene in the honeymoon suite can make intimacy hard to resist.
9. Be realistic ~ Reckon you’re going to have the most mind-blowing sex of your life on your wedding night? It could happen… but probably not. No matter what you do during the day, the excitement of your wedding will have you both filled with adrenaline, the eating and drinking will have you both full, and the dancing, chatting and general activities of the day will have you both feeling drowsy. If you follow the above tips, romance is certainly on the cards for the end of the night, but chances are it won’t be ground-breaking sex. Instead, keep your expectations realistic and focus instead on the closeness and intimacy you feel with the man who is now your husband. And you never know – it could end up being your most exciting sex yet!
Is it okay to not have sex on your wedding night? ~ “Actually, recent wedding stats show that it’s completely normal to not have sex on your wedding night! And it’s not hard to see why. You’ve been up since sunrise getting your hair and make-up sorted, not to mention sipping on champagne from the early hours, (only because it calms the pre-wedding nerves, obviously), then proceed to standing on your feet pretty much all day long. All the excitement a bride and groom endure on their wedding day can be tiring, so really, there’s no surprise that over half of newly married couples end their wedding day in the classiest way possible: passing out.” ~ Leah Messenger
Larry’s NOTE: If the night after you exchanged your vows ended with an orgasm, consider yourself lucky: 52 percent of newlyweds say they didn’t have sex on their wedding night, finds a recent survey of 2,128 people by the U.K. coupon website Voucher Codes Pro.
