I am unsure what forum to put this in or if it's even an appropriate thing to ask here, but I feel slightly less awkward asking strangers behind a keyboard than asking my mother at all, so just putting this out there:
After the reception was over & you & your new wife/husband went to where you were turning in for the night: was there any energy left for romantic endeavors?
I'm sitting here looking up bridal &/or white lingerie & something dawned on me. That wedding day is going to be LONG & I anticipate stress on top of possibly not sleeping well the night prior because jitters. The party will be lots of fun, lots of energy. What's going to realistically happen when we leave the reception? Am I really going to feel like putting on something sensual, or am I going to want to take that dress, shoes & shapewear off, take my hair down, wash my face & go the heck to SLEEP.
