Congratulations, you are married! You said “I do,” and you had a party, but there is still plenty to do once you have said, “I do.”
Many newlyweds overlook the essential tasks that they still have to cross off their checklist after the big day is over, from writing thank-you notes for your guests and vendors to preserving your wedding dress, ordering your wedding album, and much more!
To ensure you’re not missing a step, read on for everything you must do after getting married. Consider this your ultimate post-wedding checklist!
1-Write Thank You Cards
This is the most obvious and important post-wedding task. Send thank-you notes to all the friends, family members, and even those who gave a gift but were not invited. It is recommended to send thank-yous within less than three months after the wedding. However, the sooner you send them, the better!
2-Thank And Review Your Wedding Vendors
With your thank-you cards for your guests, it’s also a nice gesture to thank each wedding vendor. The most pleasing way to accomplish that? Send thank-you cards to the experts or post online reviews at their sites. We’re talking about everyone who really worked hard to set up the wedding of your dreams.
3-Get Your Wedding Dress Cleaned And Preserved
Your beautiful wedding gown deserves care after you have taken it off. If you’re planning to preserve your dress for many years, have it professionally cleaned by cleaners as soon as possible. Once your dress is cleaned, keep it in a safe place where it’s protected from dust, moisture, and exposure to direct sunlight.
4-Return All Your Wedding Rentals
There will be several things that you would have rented for your big day. Whether it’s the tuxes or table decorations you rented, return all those items immediately after the wedding is over. Otherwise, you will end up paying huge late rents for the same.
5-Create Wedding Album
Most wedding photographers don’t include albums and prints in their photography packages, so after the wedding, you’ll have to work hard to sort out the best photos of your wedding for your beautiful wedding album. Once you have sorted them all out, it’s time to order your beautiful wedding album.
6-Pack Your Bags For Your Honeymoon
If you have planned to go on your honeymoon right after tying the knot, you will surely need to pack your stuff for the most-awaited upcoming adventure of your life. Don’t wait until the last minute to pack and make arrangements for your honeymoon!
7-Enjoy Your Newlywed Status
This is undoubtedly the most obvious but very important! The hard work and stress of wedding planning are over, and now it’s time to relax as newlyweds and enjoy the married life.
Remember, everything new in life brings some changes, and it takes time to accept them. Marriage is one such thing in life. So, give yourself and your spouse time to get used to this new status and lifestyle.
