Everyone always spends so much time focusing on the actual wedding because it’s just such a huge event. There’s so much to think about, so much preparation that needs to happen, and it’s just one of the best times of your life. But when the whirlwind of the wedding is all over, what is there left to do? Well, there’s actually a few things, and some people often forget about. So we’ve got a few things that you might need to add to your list to make sure the aftermath of your wedding is done smoothly.
Your guests are the third most important people at the wedding, after you and your partner of course. So what people often forget to do is thank them for coming to your wedding. You can do this by sending out a thank you card from websites such as giftsin24.com, you could even add a little gift in there, or something from the wedding that they can keep with them forever. It might also be a nice idea to give them a few copies of photos from the night if they were included in them. Your photographer would have no doubt gone around taking a ton of pictures, it’ll be nice for them to remember the fun they had with the images.
The honeymoon is most likely something you will have thought about right from the very beginning. But a lot of people don’t actually start planning it until after the wedding because of expenses. However, you do need to have a rough idea of where you would like to go. A lot of people chose to jet off to a luxurious white sand and crystal blue sea destination. However, you can go absolutely anywhere in the world, it could even be a city break. Don’t break the bank just for your honeymoon. As long as you’re happy and you’re with each other, that is all that truly matters. There are specialist websites for booking a honeymoon, so you might be able to grab yourself a bargain from there. A lot of hotels and airlines also upgrade you when they find out what the special occasion is. So you could find yourself flying first class and staying in a luxurious suite for a fraction of the price it would usually cost.
It’s important for you to have a way of remembering everything that was magical about your wedding. As we’ve said, you hopefully will have had a photographer taking photos of the whole day, so why not create a nice little scrapbook. Fill it with anything that is going to remind you of the day. It might be the card you wrote your vows on, pictures, or even silly little things like confetti. When the years go by and you pull out that scrap book, even the tiniest of things that you’ll have saved will make you smile. It’ll also be nice to show the scrapbook to the future generation.
