Le Coucher de la Mariée or Bedtime for the Bride or The Bridegroom's Dilemma is a French erotic short film and considered one of the first pornographic films made. Shot in 1896, it was produced by Eugène Pirou and directed by Léar (Albert Kirchner). The short stars Louise Willy who performs a striptease during a bath scene, along with an unknown actor.

The film was released in the United States in 1903.
