How to keep the juices flowing on the night of your wedding

Wedding days are hailed by many to be one of the most important in a person’s life. Meticulous planning goes into them and it’s not unusual for brides-to-be to pick over the smallest of details, and this is just as it should be – it’s your (and your partner’s obv) day after all!

From the outfit to the cake, to the music being provided by a carefully selected DJ and the food being served after the ceremony, no stone should be left unturned – you’re creating treasured memories to last a lifetime.

Despite all of the preparation that goes into the wedding day,  few couples turn their attention to planning the wedding night. It is just assumed that’ll great sex will happen once you are safely tucked away in your bed for the night, and couples are sent on their way to the hotel by friends & family winking and nudging each other indelicately.

Statistics have revealed that what newlyweds want and what they actually get on the night of their wedding vary somewhat.

More than half of all newlyweds choose sleep over a bed-bopping sesh. Common reasons include tiredness, being too tipsy and not having time to eat enough during the day, none of which are unexpected (anyone already married will know what we’re talking about!).

There’s also the added pressure of speaking to all of your friends and family, which often leaves couples with little time to actually spend together. Not such a biggie as you do have the rest of forever to enjoy each other’s company, but what can you do during your wedding day and the evening that follows to get those juices flowing and ensure that you start married life with a night of passion. Read on to find out…

Abstain for a few nights beforehand

Delayed gratification is sexy and we all know that having to wait for your cake before you can eat it, makes it taste so much sweeter. The same goes for sex. Tease and tempt and flirt and play, but leave it at that for a week or two before your Big Day and you’ll both be looking forward to tearing each other’s clothes off as soon as you get some time to yourselves. Anticipation will have you both gagging for a rumbunctious romp amidst the clean sheets of the wedding-night bed…

Romance about it

There’s nothing better than sharing hot fantasies to get the juices flowing. Spend the lead up to your wedding talking about what you’d each like to happen during the wedding night. Lay down on the bed together and romance about it. Go into detail and be as explicit as you can. Do you want to try something new, or get down to something that’s saved for special occasions or do you want to go with your trusted favorite position?

Talking about sex and not actually having it is a massive turn on, and will get you both in the mood for a fun night when it eventually happens.

Feel your best

Amazing sex happens when you are feeling truly comfortable and confident in your own skin. This is your wedding night after all, so why not treat yourself to some new undies? Depending on your preferred style and the preferences of your new spouse, you can build the heat during the day by dropping hints about what you’re wearing underneath your fabulous frock/sassy suit.

Before the day, spend some time pampering yourself if time; a massage, having your nails done or getting a new haircut are all excellent ways of feeling fantastic in your skin.  Spritz on your favorite scent and sashay around to whatever music gets your blood pumping and your hips bumping…

Keep telling your partner how great they look

While your moments together may be few and far between on your wedding day (family & friends take up lots of time, trust us), so when you are together, be sure to make it special.

Let your partner know how gorgeous they look and how keen you are to get them alone so you can finally seal the deal, so to speak.

Pupils dilate naturally when we are looking at someone we’re attracted to, so make sure to eye up your partner regularly – let your eyes do the talking whenever your eyes meet across the crowded room – like so:

Play before, during and after the ceremony

Handing over the reins to your new spouse for the day is a good way of ensuring their mind (and yours!) is firmly on what’ll happen after the party has ended.

Small remote controlled vibes are super-fun and great for couples. Tuck the vibe into your underwear and hand the remote to your partner. They are now in charge of giving you short, thrilling buzzes every now and then. This is guaranteed to heighten your arousal and keep a beaming smile on your face all day long…

Keep the day playful and flirty, go lightly on the refreshments and make sure to sneak off early – and we promise you’ll have energy left over for playing!

Something Old, Something New…

With a whopping 53% of all weddings in the UK taking place between May and August, we’re busy gearing up for an alternative Wedding Season with cherry-picked gifts much more exciting than four-slice toasters or silverware.

Something Old

Traditionally the marriage begins on the wedding night, but it’s commonly estimated that more than half (52%) of newlywed couples do not consummate on the night. Organizing and executing a dream wedding is costly both in terms of finances and energy, and many couples choose to snooze rather than enjoying bed shaking antics after the nuptials.

Shaking out a tried & tested quickie position in between service and evening celebration is the best way of ensuring some private fun and sets you up for the rest of the night. This could be any position as long as you know it works.

Tickle Her Pink Clitoral Stimulating Gel Tester £3In order to spice up the quickie, we recommend keeping a handy tester sachet of Tickle Her Pink clitoral enhancing gel tucked away inside a bra or a pocket. Massage a finger-tips’ worth of stimulating gel into the clitoral area during the festive frolic, before enjoying the additional rush of blood to this super-sensitive area.

Something New

Traditionally the Bride wears something new for her wedding, but Sh! recommends non-conventional Brides takes the ‘something new’ a little further.

The honeymoon is the perfect time to relax together. Embracing new positions, techniques and adventures should be high on the agenda; a couple that plays together, stays together. Packing a little something into the suitcase will ensure the happy couple start as they mean to carry on.

This small card game for couples takes up no space in the suitcase, and each card suggests a new position to try out.

The images are a heteronormative, but with the help of imagination (or a Sharpie), you can still enjoy the positions with a strap-on, for example.

Something Borrowed

A traditional Bride may choose to borrow something from a close friend or family member to wear on the day, but we’d like to suggests an altogether different approach to ‘something borrowed’: a selection of sex tips that you can customise and make your own.

sh_-satin-seduction-bondage-gift-set-whiteBlindfolding a partner ensures that every lick, kiss and caress is felt so much more intensely. The receiving partner can relax into the blissful sensations of pleasure washing over them. This small but oh-so-useful bridal gift box holds a blindfold, a pair of satin ties and a soft feather pom for stroking and tickling. 

A soft ostrich feather traced over soft skin wakes up nerve-endings and hints at what’s to come. If you feel like taking the session a little further, this feather comes teamed with a spanking crop for teasing & pleasing. Spanking play doesn’t have to be painful, so if you just want to use the crop for posturing and playful tappin o’ the bum, that’s excellent fun too! 

lipstick_1 (1)A small discreet vibrator is the best way of increasing a woman’s chances of hitting the Big Oh. This rechargeable and waterproof lipstick style vibrator is a bestseller at Sh! and fits the bill. With 8 different settings and sensational power, it’s quick & easy to use. Remember that vibration can be exciting on parts other than juicy genitals: ear lobes, back of neck, nipples… Any body part that enjoys a bit of attention, really. 

Something Blue

Something blue traditionally refers to the Bride’s garter, a hidden expression of love & fidelity. A modern Bride may choose to forego the frilly garter, opting instead for an erotic sexting session in blue language with her betrothed.

Spending a long day with friends & family, it is not unusual for a newlywed couple to feel as if they do not get enough time together on the big day. This is easily remedied by adding some sexy sizzle with secret text messages at regular intervals throughout.

we-vibe-unite-with-remote-controlFor cheeky fun, the Bride/s could wear We Vibe Unite, a clever couples vibrator. Controlled by a discreet remote or by a free app on a  smartphone, We Vibe Unite delivers pinpoint thrills to clit & G-spot – guaranteed to liven up a long day!
