Jill Duggar not only waited until her wedding day to kiss husband Derick Dillard, she waited 23 years for her first kiss ever. So, was it worth the wait? She sure thinks so!

Jill Duggar, 23, is finally opening up about her very first kiss with husband, Derick Dillard, 25. Not only did she think it was “great,” she described it in detail in her first post-wedding interview. Keep reading to see what she said!

Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard’s First Kiss Was ‘Great’

Aren’t Jill and Derick just the cutest couple you’ve ever seen?

Now that they have officially tied the knot, and officially had their first kiss, the newlyweds are happily sharing details about their special moment in People‘s July 7 issue.

“He’s a great kisser,” Jill told the magazine of her husband, Derick. “All his trumpet playing paid off!”

Well, that’s kind of a TMI — but it’s also very sweet!

“I thought about it and decided to dip her,” Derick shared, a detail that thrilled Jill to no end.

The couple had not kissed prior to saying their vows, and they both think it was totally worth the wait.

At the altar, Jill wrapped her arm around Derick’s neck for the embrace as they shared their first kiss in front of over 1,000 guests inside Cross Church in Springdale, Ark. on June 21.

Jill & Derick’s ‘Homemade’ Wedding

Keeping up with the Duggar’s thrifty habits, Jill and Derick’s wedding was quite inexpensive.

Jill’s friend Amanda Capps baked their four-tiered vanilla buttercream and strawberry cake, while more friends decorated a vintage pick-up truck for the couple to drive away in.

The ring bearers carried antique Bibles wrapped in lace, which were a gift from Jill’s sister, Jinger.

The family also used volunteers to set up the tables and chairs for their 1,000 guests at the reception.

Jill and Derick’s wedding sounds like it was absolutely beautiful! We can’t wait to see bits of the ceremony when 19 Kids & Counting returns in fall 2014.
