You just got married! Hopefully, you will enjoy a romantic getaway and leave the everyday routines and stresses behind. There will be a list of things to do upon your return. Avoiding the stress of the tasks at hand is best done with a list and plan. This list of things to do after your wedding day will help you accomplish it all.
Preserving the Bouquet
The wedding bouquet is usually more extravagant and expensive than the one used for the bouquet toss. It is almost always created with fresh flowers, which makes keeping it a task. Sentimental brides want to preserve it. You can choose freeze-drying, silica gel, air-drying or pressing. If you are planning on having a service preserve your bouquet, you should make arrangements to have the bouquet delivered in a timely manner. Preserving a bouquet is a time-sensitive task, which can be taken care of by the mother of the bride or the maid of honor.
Return the Rentals
Your wedding day will be created by rentals. If you rent a tux, wedding party attire or décor, they will probably be due to be returned the following day. This is not a task you want to think about when you are off on your honeymoon. This is a job for friends and family. Delegate the return of rented items to members of your wedding party. Choose a team leader, and make a list.
Wedding Day Money
Money is a popular wedding day gift. If you have a box to collect cards, you will probably collect some checks and loose cash. Give the fiduciary duties to a close friend, and give them instructions to hold the money or make deposits to your account. You should instruct them to make a list of the names of the gift givers to send thank you notes.
Visit the Cleaners After the Wedding Day
Do not hesitate to have your dress professionally cleaned after your wedding day to avoid stains. The best time to choose your dry cleaner is before your wedding day. Delegate this task to another. Have the maid of honor or family member deliver the dress to the cleaners the day after your wedding. You can pick up your dress when you return, but make sure you have a plan for storing it. Many brides want to preserve their wedding dress. Make sure you store it in a dry place that is out of direct sunlight. It can be preserved in an acid-free box.
Do Not Forget to Say Thank You
After your wedding day, you should say thank you to all that attended. Most guests brought a gift. You should give a special thanks for gifts. Mention the gift in the thank you note to make each card unique. You should not wait too long to send out thank you notes. This task should be accomplished within a couple days after your wedding day.
Marriage Changes Everything
If you intend to change your name, you will need to change your name on your driver’s license, social security card, deeds, titles, bank accounts, credit cards, and basically on everything you own. Handle this task sooner than later. Make sure you do it before the excitement wears off or it will feel like work. If you did not live together before marriage, you will need to set up mail forwarding with the post office, and change your mailing address on your driver’s license, bank accounts, and everywhere that matters.
A Year After Your Wedding Day
A year after your wedding day, you will be celebrating an exciting one year anniversary. Most couples choose to preserve the top tier of their wedding cake in a freezer to cut and eat on the special occasion. Make sure you wrap the top tier in plastic and store it properly in the freezer to avoid freezer burn. This might be a task you delegate to the mother of the bride. You can transfer to your own freezer when you return from your honeymoon.
