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 breaking with wedding tradition—plus embracing some very cool modern ones like skipping the white wedding dress for a colored dress—there's one big day trope we just can't help but get totally romantic over. 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! (This is why one hands out tissues to their guests in their welcome bags, tear). 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?
