@jdhall89:  I see nothing wrong with the photo and you two are adults so it is your decision. Is your mother overally conservative or from a conservative culture?

@jdhall89:  OK disclaimer: I’m in my late 40s so probably a similar age to your mother and aunts.

I think it’s a bit over the top. Many relatives may not even know what your FI looks like. So I think the STD should show your faces.

I think it’s cute! I wouldn’t want a picture of me and FH kissing on people’s fridges for a whole year either, but I think that picture is totally appropriate for what you did use it for!

Lol, what’s she going to do when the officiant says, “You may now kiss the bride”?

@jdhall89:  Lol! That sounds just like my mom. She at least pretends to be very liberal and accepting, but I hate to say it… she is a total prude. At least she knows it.

Personally, I think the picture is adorable. I know my aunts and uncles and other family would think a picture like that was cute. I think sometimes parents are just weird about things when it is their own children…

I think it’s a cute pic! It’s not even an open mouth, tongue everywhere kiss! It’s totally tasteful.

@jdhall89:  It actually kind of looks like he’s trying to avoid your kiss based on his body language (even though that’s not the case, I’m sure). I don’t think it’s scandalous, but I agree with PP that a picture showing both your faces would be better.

ETA: If she’s your biological mom, then I’m sure she’s done worse. 😉

I think it’s perfect for a web page! It’s not like you’re trying to stick your tounges down each other’s throats.

….I have no problem with kissing pictures, it’s not like your legs are wrapped around him with mouths wide open and tongues probing each other or anything. It’s just a kiss. I love seeing people kiss (tastefully, like in your picture). It warms my heart. More people should kiss. This world would be a better place. My 88 year old grandfather and my husband’s conservative relatives were all a-okay with kissing pictures on our website. The pictures of us kissing at the wedding got more “likes” on Facebook than any other pictures. 

Also if a relative didn’t know what my fiance looked like, they wouldn’t be invited to my wedding, only close people who actually know you should be at a wedding in my personal opinion, they should have at least seen a picture via email over the years. Just my personal two cents, I know other people invite everybody they’ve ever met to weddings and anybody who shares a blood relation…

The real point is wow chillax, kissing is beautiful and this is tasteful.
