I agree with this as well.
I don't want to come across as saying that a husband should be demanding, rude, or impatient. But I do want to advise husbands and wives to relate to each other as the bible says they should because I think it will be a blessing to them both and their marriage will be right before the Lord.
I think this is one of those things that a husband may not fully understand his wife's feelings about and a wife may not understand a husband's feelings about. I agree with the earlier post that said the wedding may be more about her and the wedding night more about him. For this reason, I think a wise wife should be very careful to encourage that first evening to be more about him that her. I'm not saying it isn't important for her, don't misunderstand that. I just don't think an hours shower and two hours before clothes coming off are going to be encouraging for him.
