Hi fellow bees. I’m getting married at the end of March and am so excited! However, I have heard horror stories about how after the wedding, photographs, dinner/reception, etc etc that it is very common to be completely worn out and too tired to be intimate with your new spouse. I sure hope that this doesnt happen! I’m curious, other bees who are married, were you able to find the time and energy to be intimate with your new spouse on your wedding night?

No we weren’t in the mood for anything other than going to bed LOL but we made up for it on the Honeymoon 🙂

I can tell you now that i don’t plan on doing anything the night of. I am sure we will make up for it on our Honeymoon. I start getting hair and make up done around 2ish but have to be there way earlier as my Bridesmaid or Best Man are getting theirs done first. Our reception is over at midnight then off to the hotel. So i will be a grumpy wife! I do expect a back massage though since he doesn’t really need to be there early so he could totally do that for me as i sleep.

We’re waiting to seal the deal until the wedding night, so pretty much the ENTIRE day has been planned around us getting to our hotel at a reasonable hour. I’m sure we won’t stay up all night long, but it’ll happen, no doubt about it.

We didn’t have sexy time but we were intimate ! We relaxed in the jacuzzi at the hotel, talked about how awesome the wedding was, then fell asleep watching a movie. I think quiet time alone, reflecting on how great it is to be hubby and wife was just as intimate as having sex.

I wouldn’t call it a horror story lol, it’s just a fact that a lot of couples end up waiting till the next day to consummate 😉
DH and I decided we were determined to consummate by golly and our reception was over around 8, so did, then took a nap, then went to our after party.
It was nice but it wasn’t mind blowing and I don’t think waiting until the next morning would have made much of a difference.

If I remember correctly we just went to bed. Having a wedding is a lot of work.

We didn’t. Probably because we had already lived together for 4 years before, I had been up since 5am getting ready (ceremony was at 11am), and we had people staying over at our home that night as well so it would have been awkward. It just wasn’t a priority for us 🙂

We did, but I was very random. I remember being exhausted and straving. We actally went and ordered chinese food on the way back.

A horror story is axe murderers. Being too tired for sex is not a horror story.

We did. DH got some super human energy in the middle of the night totally out of nowhere! Kind of a fun ending of the best day of my life

We did…but barely, haha. I always thought we for sure would, but I really didn’t plan on how tired we would be. But nonetheless, it was important to both of us. We got back to our hotel, laid in bed and had a slice of wedding cake (we were dancing too much to eat during the reception) then took a bath and I swear I kept waking up when I would start sinking into the water, haha. When we got in bed I almost didn’t have it in me, but we quickly and sweetly made love. Just don’t plan on a marathon, but something short and sweet. Sort of a “holy cow we’re married!” and that’s enough. We more than made up for a poor performance the whole honeymoon 😉

If you want to make sure it happens, it’ll happen.

Im not married yet but as much as having sex on your wedding night is the thing to do. The day is going to leave us pooped. I would be happy if we just showered and cuddled.
