You had a beautiful wedding, your closest friends and family enjoyed themselves, and now you're a happily married couple. Now what? Here are some of our favorite suggestions for you and your new husband or wife to do after the wedding. Hint: There are a few logistics you'll need to take care of, otherwise, focus on your honeymoon!
Enjoy being Married
First and foremost, you're married now so take time to enjoy your new status. Have fun calling one another Mr. And Mrs., Wife and Husband . . . Tell the world that you're newlyweds. Display obnoxious amounts of PDA—you get the idea! You'll probably also want to enjoy some must needed alone time without all your helpful friends and family around. You'll never get this time back, so make sure you embrace every moment.
R&r: Rest & Relaxation
Take some time to relax. Whether you're going on a honeymoon right away or not, make sure to plan at least one day of pure rest before you head off to vacation or back to everyday life. Catch your breath, put on a movie, and enjoy each other’s company. You deserve it!
Set aside a few hours to open up all of those gorgeous wedding gifts you have been waiting for! Perhaps turn it into a fun date night, complete with wine, dinner, and a walk on the beach afterward. Don’t forget to keep track of your gifts and gifters, so that you can easily write thank you cards later on.
Off, Off, and Away!
