Michele Bender Photo Credit: More Than An Image The Big Day is over, and you and your new husband head up to your hotel suite for a romantic champagne toast, followed by an amazing romp in bed.
Since real life is often not so picture perfect, we asked some recent newlyweds to share what really happened. So after everything was over, I went upstairs, changed into my lingerie, filled two glasses with champagne and waited for my new husband. But he never came! He waited for 30 minutes in his room and spent another 30 minutes begging the hotel staff to let him into mine.
To verify that he was who he said he was, a hotel employee had to come in with him.
And there I was, asleep in a chair, wearing my lingerie and still holding onto a full glass of champagne. My sister had gotten us a karaoke machine, so we sang with everyone until 4 a. It was the best night of my life. John in the U. After the wedding brunch, we all went for a sailboat ride.
We had lots more planned, but I was so exhausted that when we returned from the ride, I passed out in a beach chair for the rest of the afternoon. That night, we went out to dinner and I could barely keep my eyes open. Needless to say, I went straight to sleep! We stopped on the concierge level, which had a lounge that offers evening treats.
I wanted chocolate-covered strawberries, but since it was sooooo late, the lounge was closed. Despite this, John begged the hotel staff to put together a huge platter of sweets. We hung out with friends in our suite until no one could keep their eyes open anymore—except me!

Our caterer gave us doggie bags. When we got back to our hotel room around midnight, all we could think about was food. But when we opened our bags, everything was cold and there were no utensils.
When we finally got between the sheets, there was rice pilaf everywhere. When I was getting undressed, I broke the baby pearl bracelet that a friend had lent me.
We both woke up starving in the middle of the night, so we drove to a hour convenience store and loaded up on snacks. My husband got so ill he had to go to a hospital emergency room with what turned out to be an allergic reaction to the shellfish in the pasta.
It goes without saying, we missed our flight to Hawaii. So I asked my wedding planner to add vases of flowers and scented candles, dim the lights, put on music and put some small snacks on a tray on the bed. My husband loved it!
Then place throw pillows on the floor and sip champagne together. One bride loved chocolate-chip cookies, so I made sure a homemade batch was there on a platter for her. I know it sounds obvious, but since so many couples live together today, they may decide just to head home and save some money.
