    We planned to. It didn’t happen. Oh well. The next night (first night of our mini-moon) was amazing!

    @renwoman:  I was too freakin tired.  I enthusiastically told DH to get my dress off of me ASAP and then fell asleep 😉  My friends actually had a bet about it lol because they know how pathetic I am at staying awake when I’m tired.

    It was among the lamest, crappiest times we ever had sex — but we did it, if only for bragging rights. 

    Still, it’s a very common thing not to. We didn’t even have a wedding that spanned an entire day (really, it went from about 2 or 3 until midnight — including getting ready and setup), and I was exhausted.

    @renwoman:  I thought for sure we wouldn’t because we had such a late wedding (7:30pm-1am) and even though we were exhausted we got a second wind Wink

    We planned to but I was too exhausted.  We ended up at an “after party” until 4:30 that night, and were up at 8:00 to go to breakfast, and I needed sleep.

    We’re doing a picnic around midday that will only last until 4 or 5, so we really don’t have any excuses!

    Before I was planning that we stay for one night and then go straight to our honeymoon so I was thinking i would be too tired and why not save it for our first night of our honeymoon. Then we decided to stay 3 days after the wedding (its kind of a DW) so i doubt that we will wait till our honeymoon but i also dont thing it’s gonna happen on the wedding night either. I just told FI lets see where the night takes us. If were too exhausted then we wont probably, who knows when it’s gonna happen but I wont be planning it. What comes naturally is way better in my opinion :))

    We did. By the end of the night we really weren’t as tired as we expected ourselves to be.

    We did, but like @CookieCreamCakes it wasn’t great. We had an after party until about 2:30 and we were both pretty tired.

    It was partly just to say we did… Several of DH’s friends were married before us, and on his bachelor party one of his friends said “no one has sex on their wedding night” and took a poll of those who were married to see who did. So… of course, after that we had to, right?

    We’re running off to City Hall and will have a quiet dinner afterwards, just the two of us, so we will not be too tired for a roll in the hay!  Yet another benefit of eloping!!

    I hope we do! I will be disappointed if we don’t.

    We didn’t plan to. I knew we’d both be tired, sweaty and drunk. Which we were. We did shower together though! And then immediately to bed.

    I told FI no way, we’re gunna be too tired.  But he’s the opposite – brags about consumation and sealing the deal, making me his real wife, ravaging me – all that macho male crap.  So I checked off “we hope to” bc it’ll be a toss up.  It’s not high on my list of priorities for that day/night lol.  We’ve been together 6 years so… been there, done that lol.  But it would be nice to put on something special for him that night and have a first night as husband and wife in that fancy hotel etc.  We’ll see!

    Because of our Christian faith, my DH and I waited until after we were married to share any intimacy with each other beyond kissing, and, although my DH had been married previously, I was a virgin.  Given this, we did not plan to go from “just kissing” to consummating our marriage in one night, and we did not.
