HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Congrats on your impending marriage.
There is the potential to bleed but it is usually minor if any is seen at all. Because the vaginal opening is tight there may be some discomfort but this would be minimised if there is adequate lubrication to reduce any trauma.

You and your husband should take it slowly and relax. Focus on touching, kissing and exploring each other. This serves to increase your arousal which would help increase your body's natural lubrication.

Talk to each other about what your like, prefer or stimulates you.

Buy a water based lubricant such as k y gel, astroglide,ID glide, liquid silk, if these are not available there are a lot of other options. Water based lubricants can be purchased at pharmacies and supermarkets simply look for water based vaginal lubricant.
The lubricant should be applied to the outside of the vagina, the penis and the outside of the condom if you are using one.

If you experience any significant discomfort, stop, tell your partner and relax. Make sure you are aroused and there is enough lubrication. Arousal is key because as stated earlier this affects your natural lubrication.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
