So I hear that many times couples are way too tired to have sex on their wedding night. My SO were curious how true this is, since we’re afraid we may be one of the too tired couples. Also a few newlywed friends shared that it was a tough thing to carry out. I guess that’s what the honeymoon is for. Either way we wanna try to make things romantic and hopefully have some energy left for each other. Anyone else curious or have any suggestions?

We managed it without difficulty (and in between bouts of taking care of some very drunken guests, no less). I have two suggestions. First, get started as soon as you get to your room. If you shower/bath/lay down and relax first, the tiredness can take over. Second, don’t attempt epic, romance-novel sex or try something very new and different. Go into it expecting nice, average sex and it will be fun!

My main suggestions are: don’t drink too much at the reception (definitely at least alternate alcoholic drinks with water, or just limit yourself to what you can handle without getting overly tipsy) and dont try to be the last man standing (your friends and family can entertain themselves if they want to stick around for an after-party). Not sure what your logistics situation is, but is it possible for one of the bridal party members to get your room ready for you before you go up? We were staying at the hotel where our reception was, and our best man went up and cleared away all the mess, put candles and flowers everywhere, and had someone bring up a little snack tray (cheese, fruit, wedding cake) for us to have later, and it really helped set the mood, to have such a gorgeous, romantic room to go back to (instead of a chaotic mess).

We were tired but we managed! We even left our after-party early so we could go home and “celebrate”.

Ack, no! We made the mistake of eating, taking off the uncomfy wedding clothes, and tearing through the cards…. we both straight up passed out. :/

Nope. 🙁 I passed out at 10:00ish and he stayed up watching the Goonies. We made up for it the following night though. 😉

we had a 4:00 wedding, but since I was losing my virginity to him, we technically did, but I’m sure it wasn’t great for him luckily it was still really a special night!

Nope, but we got busy first thing in the am though

Heck to the Yes! We didn’t want to be one of those couples who didn’t.
For fun I wore a white cute little babydoll and a veil 🙂

Ahead of time, I was kind of expecting us to be too tired, and while I was exhausted, we had a very good time together.

My husband spent our wedding night with a stomach flu. So, no, we didn’t. Sometimes life throws you a curveball!

Yes. And even though we’d been living together (and….) for 4 years at that point, it was still amazing. I’m really, really happy we did 🙂

We were too tired honestly. And with my health stuff, sex hasn’t been too amazing lately sadly.
Plus going back to your own house isn’t really too romantic.

We tried, but things didn’t physically work out. I think we were over tired and nervous. We did do it the next morning, not great but the deed was done. We were both virgins.
