You're married, back from your honeymoon and ready to start a new chapter with your husband. Before you jump into everyday life, there are a few post-wedding items that you need to pay attention to. Here are four things that should be done after the wedding.
Send Thank You Notes
It is a wise idea to order your thank you notes when you order your wedding invitations. Start to write them as soon as you come back from honeymoon. Set a goal stating how many you will write each night and stick to the goal. It’s a good idea to ask your husband to join you.
Get Your Dress Cleaned
You must have taken a lot of time to find out your wedding dress, and it’s an important symbol of your memorable wedding. It’s necessary to have it dry cleaned or preserved after your wedding. It's best to do this right away so any stains can be removed.
Announce Your Marriage
Put your wedding information in your local paper or have the pictures displayed on your photographer's blog or a wedding blog. If the pictures are on a blog, send an email with the announcement and the link to the blog. Ask your photographer for use of the pictures, if they have rights to the images.
Change Your Name
Yes, you’re married and start a new life with your soul mate. It’s time to change your name on your social security card, credit cards, bank statements and other important documents. Get started on the name change process immediately.
