When you finally tie the knot, said your vows and “I do’s,” and the honeymoon is over, it is time to begin facing the reality of marriage. You and your spouse may begin by taking time to do these three things necessary for a newly married couple.

Fulfill your post-wedding duties

Although the wedding is over,there are important things you must look into with regards to the ceremony. Below are some of them:

  • Ensure that those who have rendered you services for the wedding such as the coordinator, caterer, florist, and others are paid. Do secure a written confirmation that the final payment has been settled.
  • Also, see to it that you’ll have rented tuxedos or gowns returned after your wedding to avoid additional charges. This is especially important if you’re about to leave out of town for your honeymoon.
  • Moreover, as a gesture of courtesy, write thank you notes to appreciate your guests and their generosity for the wedding gifts you’ve received. Mailing personalized thank you cards would be very thoughtful and sincere. However, messaging or calling them will still be much appreciated.

Move into your new home

After or even while ensuring that all matters related to your wedding are settled, you can start moving into your new home. Most couples worry that they can’t start building their dream houses yet. The reality is you can begin by renting a house while saving money to build your own home.
