Your wedding day is one of the most special occasions of your lifetime. Countless hours of planning and preparation will go into making sure the day goes exactly as you want it to. The planning shouldn’t end with the wedding day, however. After your special day there is still more to be done.
There will be lots still to do after you get married, and not enough couples are putting enough effort in to prepare for the duties they have after the main event. If you want the whole of your wedding to run smoothly, there are a few things that anyone can do to make those first few days of married life less stressful and make sure you have dotted all the ‘i’s’ and crossed the ‘t’s’.
Here is a quick guide to a few of the things any couple should prepare for after their big day.
1. Put Time into Planning the Perfect Honeymoon
Your honeymoon is just as important as the wedding ceremony, maybe more so. If you can have a full vacation after the ceremony, you should make sure you have examined every aspect of your destination and call ahead to any accommodation you are using; let them know they have a newly married couple coming.
Many hotels, resorts and even bed & breakfasts will have something special to offer newlyweds, and you may get a free upgrade to your stay or free dining or excursions.
2. Make Sure You Plan on Saying Thank You
After your special day you are going to have a lot of thank you cards to send to family members, friends, and maybe some of the contractors who have helped make you day special.
If you have the time, you can craft cards yourself that can be individual to each person if you like by using a template to design a unique card. This personal touch is a great way to show your gratitude to the people who have helped make your day so special.
3. Update All Your Paperwork with Your New Name and Details
Some people forget to update their details with banks, credit companies, or utility providers if they change their name or address as a part of their new union.
Contact any important companies, like your bank, to let them know your details are changing ahead of schedule so that you don’t run into problems using your bank or credit cards. Update your passport too if you are honeymooning abroad.
The day you get married is incredibly special, and you won’t be able to get everything done without the help and assistance of many family members and close friends, as well as the contractors you use to provide food, drink and space for the event.
Your honeymoon is also an important event, and shouldn’t be overlooked. It is more than just a vacation or a getaway; your honeymoon is just as important a part of your wedding as the ceremony.
With a little bit of planning and preparation you can make sure the whole wedding runs smoothly, including the days after the ceremony and no one’s help is forgotten.
