You may kiss the bride: Plan and practice the moment.

If you decide that you want to be prepared on the day of your wedding when you finally hear “you may kiss the bride”, then I recommend planning out the first kiss. My husband and I waited until the day before our wedding to plan the kiss. I am so happy we did though because his intentions would not have made for very good pictures! We talked about hand placement, and then practiced exactly how we would embrace. It definitely helped us avoid any awkwardness, as we both knew exactly what to expect.
