enjoy being newlyweds

From months of wedding planning to finally getting married, now it’s time to rest and relax. Spend some quality time with your partner and simply enjoy this new chapter of your lives together as newlyweds. Believe it or not, these couple of days are the most precious time for you before diving back into regular routines. You can view your wedding photos/albums, go on small dates, etc.

Send Thank You Notes

It’s impossible to imagine celebrating your special day without guests. The presence of your loved ones makes your wedding day truly memorable. Once the ceremony is complete, be sure to express your gratitude by sending personalized thank-you notes to each of them. Here are some tips on how to share thank-you notes after a wedding:

Preparing Your Wedding Guest List

The first thing you should do after your wedding is to create a checklist of wedding guest attendees. This will help you understand the guest count, ensuring that no one is left out. Write a personalized message in each thank-you note. Whether you prefer traditional paper cards with personalized notes or opt for digital thank-you notes, it all depends on your preference.

Don't Delay

Once you have rested enough, relaxed, and feel refreshed after the wedding ceremony, you can start working on sharing personalized thank-you notes with your loved ones. Don’t delay in sharing your thank-you cards. To make the process more manageable and ensure they are delivered on time, consider dividing the duty with your partner or family members.

Get ready for Your honeymoon

After the hustle and bustle of the wedding festivities, it’s time to focus on rejuvenating your mind, body, and soul. Get ready for an exciting and romantic trip after your wedding, one that will be cherished for years to come. Whether it’s choosing the dream destination or arranging travel logistics and accommodations, let’s enhance the anticipation of your honeymoon. Also, opt for a destination that aligns with both of your interests.

Keep the romance alive by dating


It might sound unusual, but yes, you should continue dating each other even after marriage. Make it a habit to have regular date nights and surprise each other with gifts. If you continue to make efforts to impress and surprise each other, the love between you two will never get old or dull. The more time you spend together, the more lasting memories you create that will be remembered and cherished for a long time.

Some additional Things to Do After Your Wedding

Here are some additional tips that you shouldn’t ignore:

  • As a newlywed couple, it’s important to update your insurance policies as well. Ensure that your insurance coverage accurately reflects your new marital status.

  • Most couples prefer to change their names after marriage. If you’re one of them and planning to change your name after marriage, start the process by updating your legal documents such as ID cards, licenses, passports, etc. It all depends on your personal preferences.

  • If you’ve rented items, remember to return them on time to prevent any damage or late fees.

  • If your chosen wedding venue or vendors meet or exceed your expectations, consider leaving a positive review. Share what you liked most and provide an honest review. Your valuable feedback can assist future couples in making informed decisions when choosing their wedding venue/vendors.

  • Share the exciting news with your loved ones on social media profiles like Instagram and Facebook. Consider updating your status to reflect your new marital status.
