Okay, my fiancee and I have a “unique” situation. He is in a wheelchair and, as such, I will be sitting down across from him during the ceremony. I think that if we both leaned in towards each other for the first kiss, it won’t look beautiful in pictures and will seem really impersonal and awkward. SO, what I was thinking was, that when it was time for our first kiss, I’d stand up, sit on his lap, and we’d kiss there (optional: him dipping me during the kiss).
My question is, do you think that would be seen as inappropriate seeing as how I’d be sitting on his lap?

i don’t think it’s inappropriate at all (especially considering when you do have your first kiss you will be Mr. & Mrs.). i think it’s sweet. maybe you two can practice to see what flows better, wink wink, nudge nudge

Is it in a church?
I think it all depends on how you do it. Something like that could be overly sexual, or it could be sweet. I agree with TrixieStix- practice!

We aren’t getting married in a church. We’re planning on an outdoor ceremony in a park. =]
Thanks for the input girls!

You’re fully clothed – I think it’d be fine!

Sounds good to me. If you have e-pics in your future do one like this so you can see what it looks like.

We did our engagement pictures already…about 10 days before my fiancee had his accident and ended up in a wheelchair! 🙁 BUT! He’s alive and well and that’s the important thing! But do you know how hard it is to find (professional) pictures of people in wheelchairs getting married? Lol! SO tough! Our wedding will be one for those future brides and husbands in chairs to look at for inspiration!

As long as you’re not straddling him I don’t see why it could be considered inappropriate… 🙂

It would be soooooo sweet, I reckon go for it, and it would make for a gorgeous photo.

I think it would be very sweet and endearing! It’s YOUR wedding so I think you should do whatever YOU want. I’m pretty conservative and I think it would be romantic and totally appropriate.

I say either work. My very best friend is married to a man in a wheelchair and they had a gorgeous wedding and ceremony.
I looked back on their pictures and she leaned in for the kiss and it is a gorgeous picture.
Their first dance, she sat on his lap and he wheeled them around. It was very intimate.
Here they are at the first kiss. I tried to find a picture where you couldn’t see their faces or anything.

Aww, what a cute picture! Thanks for the advice everyone.
Im honestly seeing myself in his lap 1/2 of the day lol. In a nonsexual way, of course. But we’re going to see if he can wheel me down the aisle as well. And then IF we do a 1st dance, I’ll be sitting in his lap 🙂

I think that is a really sweet idea! That is not inappropriate at all!
