Sorry but I’m not a fan of using kiss pictures for anything public either. They are ok for your own home but I would rather see your faces then you kissing.

@jdhall89:  LOL! I’m sorry but that is hilarious. You guys look so adorable in this photo. It’s something actually innocent about it. 

Is your mom not an affectionate person? Some people don’t understand PDA or affection. And it’s not a bedroom scene. You guys are adorable!

I think picking one with both your faces would be better, but honestly your picture is fine and it is for a WEBSITE. It isn’t like people have to do everything on there. As long as you aren’t using them for your Save-The-Date Cards or invites I don’t see the big deal.

My man and I are major PDA-ers. As long as your not grinding on him licking him  or smothering I’m cool with it. I think it is precious!

@mepayne:  I wouldn’t want a picture of Fiance and I kissing on people’s fridges…or the internet.

It wouldn’t work for us but to each their own.

@MrsWBS:  +1. This. We do some PDA, but I don’t care for seeing pictures like this.

@jdhall89:  Sorry, I have to agree with your mom. I’m 31 and uncomfortable with other ppl’s kissing pictures, but not to the point where I’d care if you put that on your wedding website or Save-The-Date Cards. However, I’m guessing that ppl your parents’ age might be more judgmental about it. Play it safe and use non-PDA, but lovey pix. 🙂

I pulled together a few of our wedding or engagement photos where we are kissing or being intimate in some way. Honestly, I have no problem with people seeing these. Obviously… because they’re the ones I chose haha. We were engaged/recently married, OF COURSE we want to kiss and show our love. I mean, full-on making out is one thing, but I see no problem with this. Your picture is adorable and it shows that you really care about each other!

@MrsPanda99:  +1. I agree with the “to each their own.” I certainly wouldn’t mind if people found these pictures offensive and looked away/threw them away, but I am not going to stop taking them because of what some people may or may not think.

@QueenOfSerendip:  I have plenty of pictures like that with my Fiance…We just don’t show everyone, put them online, or distribute them. I believe some things should be left in the private realm. That’s not to say we don’t give little pecks in public or do affectionate things, but we are always off in our own world anyway 😛

Maybe it’s because I’m use to seeing couples kiss all the time I don’t see an issue with this.  I do think a picture showing both of your faces would be better (just because not every guest has probably met you both).  Personally I’m not the type to kiss in public, we don’t even normally hold hands when we’re out.

Her issue might be the fact that in that picture you’re kissing him instead of him kissing you.  Maybe if you find a different picture of you two kissing maybe she’d like it better.

@jdhall89:  ohhh so racy! HA NOT!

 

I think it’s fine!! Leave it as is. Let this be the first decision you guys make where mama doesn’t tell you what to do. You’re going to need the practice in the future LOL. Parents and in-laws LOVe to tell you what you should do. 🙂 Its a super cute picture!

I think the picture is cute.

And I really don’t get it. Your friends/family will clink their glasses like crazy at the wedding to watch you kiss but a picture is just too much???

A wedding is about love and a kiss shows that. Totally appropriate IMO.

I think the picture is cute and definitely not racy or anything, but I do agree with a PP that said his body language makes it look like he doesn’t want to be kissing you.  You’re leaning forward, he’s leaning away and his foot is up like he’s kinda reeling back or something.  I would still use the pic, but I would put up a couple others that show more equal body language.
