It could be normal: it could be normal,varied from woman to woman because they might have different kind of hymen. the most important thing is to refrain having more sex until the bleeding is stopped,second is if bleeding is a lot and you have to change too many pads,or you are having a lot of pain even without sex,then we worry about tear in the vagina and has to be repaired. mabrook on your wedding,stay safe.

Bleeding is brief: Bleeding from a little hymen tear stops by itself in minutes to maybe an hour, just like bleeding stops if one were to bite the inside of her mouth while playing sports. She won't know if her hymen broke unless she is good at examining hymens. In the U.S., women and girls may be judged by their happiness, friendliness, and many other wonderful traits, but not by the condition of their hymens.
