Practice, Practice, Practice!

It might seem silly practicing a kiss, but out of all the wedding prep, this might be the most fun! Decide if you want to do a dip, what you're going to do with your hands, visualize standing in front of your friends and family, and give each other the best kiss of your life.

Ask Your Officiant to Step Out of the Way

Ask them to step aside for the first kiss so the picture is just you two. This is something to mention to your officiant when you have your planning meeting and during rehearsal you can practice where they will move to. If they forget on the wedding day, have your best man or maid of honor give them a nudge!

Hold Your Kiss Longer Than Usual

Don't be afraid to smile or laugh a little, but make sure to hold your kiss a little longer than normal so your photographer can get a good shot. For a sweet touch, add subtle little kisses after the main kiss.

Recessional Kiss

When exiting, don't forget to stop halfway and kiss again! Switch it up if you're feeling risky and do a different kiss than you did at the altar.
