Now here's a holiday we can get behind—it's International Kissing Day, everyone! As if you needed an excuse to pucker up and drop a kiss on your sweetheart. International Kissing Day gives all of us a great reason to not only get busy smooching but to break out your inner romantic. Having a hard time getting in the International Kissing Day mood? We're here to help with some first kiss inspiration.

While we're all for challenging some wedding traditions—who says you have to wear a white wedding dress or recite traditional vows?—we will always be in love with one big day trope. The bride and groom's first kiss as husband and wife is so unbelievably sweet and full of promise that we're tearing up just thinking about it (Pass the tissues, please!). But the first kiss is obviously not the only chance the bride and groom have to lock lips on their wedding day. From the first look, to the portraits, to the first dance, to a million stolen kisses in between, it's hard to find a newlywed couple who can't help but sneak in a sweet, love-filled, happy smooch.

So what better way to celebrate International Kissing Day than gushing over some seriously tender and lovely wedding kisses?

Don't believe us? Scroll through to see 37 perfect kisses from some of our favorite real brides and grooms.
