The cake is done, and you are about ready to pack up and leave with your new spouse. We have some after the wedding tips to make this a great night for you both.
1. Have food packed up.
You’ve been dancing the night away, and may not have had time to actually eat your dinner. Have someone pack up a little bit of everything, including an extra piece of cake, so you two can sit and enjoy a midnight snack, just the two of you.
2. Be ready for the honeymoon.
We know the wedding was stressful, but now you can relax and enjoy time together for the honeymoon. Be sure to have packed ahead of time, and make sure you have everything you need in advance. You don’t want to be scrambling with suitcases and forget something. Instead, be prepared a day or two ahead of time, and have your suitcases in the getaway car or at the hotel if you’re leaving the next day.
3. Don’t rush back to everyday life.
You’re starting a new chapter, so enjoy the time and give yourself time to adjust to the change. You may be moving houses and need some adjustment time, so schedule that in after your honeymoon. Weddings are a whirlwind, so take time to adjust and ease yourself back into your new reality.
4. Have someone else pack up your gifts.
You’re on your way out the door, off to a hotel or your new home, the last thing you want to do is worry about where the gifts are. So designate a trusted friend to pack up the gifts and make sure they get to your house. This way, you have one less thing to stress about and don’t have to worry about packing things up after a long day.
