For the first time in my life I said, "Can we just cuddle tonight?" I was too drunk.

"We spent the evening eating leftovers from our reception and talking/laughing about the big day. Then we slept, and it was wonderful."

"Sex, then ate Oreos in bed. 10/10."

"We slept."

"We drank champagne, ate a mars bar and watched music video's until we passed out."

"Counted the money our guests gave us...then had spectacular, guilt-free sex!"

"We went home, he helped me take the pins out of my hair, and then I took a shower to get all of the hairspray out. Then we went to bed."

"Sex, then drinking with friends."
