Things To Do After Your Wedding
Making A Fresh Start
So you’ve done it! All those long hours, careful planning, and moments of frustration have paid off. You’re now married, and the romantic honeymoon has finally come to an end. So what happens now?
It’s almost unthinkable that those fabled words of “I do,” have finally passed by, and now comes the most important part of marriage, the rest of your life! Well, that’s not entirely true, yet. There are plenty of things you should accomplish before returning to life as a married person. Here are some things to think about when it comes to life after the wedding.
Taking Care of The Essentials
The wedding itself may be over, but there are still plenty of wedding related matters to finish. This means sending out your thank you notes, finishing your registry, making all the necessary payments to vendors, planners, and photographers, and of course not to mention cleaning and preserving that previous wedding dress.
Be sure to also leave a friendly tip for those who helped put the wedding together, whether that means a literal tip for those you’ve paid or a personal gift to those lovable in-laws or other family and friends that have been there to make the ceremony and reception a shining success.
Once you’ve taken care of these basics, it’s on to arguably one of the most important necessities of newlyweds.
Making It Official
By now you’ve probably already looked through the process of how to get your certificate of marriage, (and for those getting married in Las Vegas, you can check out our guide here), so it’s important to seal the legal deal and obtain the certificate as well as doing any other legal matters that need to be fulfilled, including name changes and updating the bank accounts so there’s no confusion next time you need to make a withdrawal.
Moving In Together?
It doesn’t have to happen right away, and sometimes it’s already happened! But If you’re one of those couples that have yet to move in together, now’s a great time to relocate into married life. The easy move is for the two of you to move into a property one of you already owns, but if not then here’s a perfect opportunity to find the house that fits you as a married couple.
Be sure the property you’re going to live in will accommodate your near future plans, whether that includes bigger storage, a garage that fits all necessary cars, or even a spare room for a potential baby on the way! A home is like a canvas, and painting it in a new color of your relationship will make it all the more transformative for your time together.
Returning To Routine With A New Schedule
Ensure that coming back to your work life is a smooth transition. With all of the life changing events in a wedding, it’s not a surprise that getting back to your job may seem like a strange step back to normalcy. Your boss, coworkers, or customers would likely understand why you haven’t been present for some time, but it may take a little getting used to when you step back into the routine.
But don’t fret! Things will settle back into place in time, and you’ll feel better at work knowing that the pressure and effort of the wedding is no longer hanging over your head.
It’s a simple thing to do, but sometimes with life’s constant challenges we can forget it. Have fun! Enjoy the wonderful things life has to offer, and now you have someone to share it with! Just because you’re married doesn’t mean you can’t still date or surprise one another now and then. A relationship is a constantly evolving thing, even after the wedding (especially after the wedding)!
