Your Ultimate Post-Wedding To-Do List

The wedding’s over and done with, now what?

Large

As the newlyweds that you are, the amount of pressure that you’ve been put under for the last number of months is totally understandable, especially when you’ve been planning for the big day for too damn long, only to be left with all these questions regarding what to do after that particular day is over. Unfortunately, your list of duties does go on for a while even after you’ve tied the knot, and we want to lend you a helping hand in determining the kind of tasks that await you. 

Here’s your conclusive post-wedding to-do list:

-Priming the house:

Newly wedded couples typically spend the first days of their honeymoon either at an inn or cozying up in their new home. In order to perfectly ready the house for the big move-in, you have got to find a way to make sure of its cleanliness, orderliness, and overall functionality. You can do that by simply asking your parents, siblings, or friends to run a quick checkup on the house. 

-Setting down in writing the amount of cash you receive:

A lot of people nowadays prefer to give out cash as a wedding gift. In Egypt, we call that a “Noqta”, and a lot of people like to gift couples with the Noqta on their wedding day. We advise you to document every single amount that you receive, in writing, and as soon as you collect it.

-Laundering and returning:

We get it, your wedding attire is the last thing to think about now but honestly, it’s something that you need to get out of the way, pronto. Whether your suit/dress is rented, borrowed, or personally purchased, it needs proper care even after the wedding’s over and especially if it doesn’t belong to you. This also applies to the accessories you sported on your big day, polish them and keep them in a suitable, safe place.

-Thanking guests and service providers: 

Expressing love and gratitude is an act that should never be postponed for later. That’s why it’s your duty to prioritize thanking your guests for showing up and showering you with gifts while also thanking the service providers, like caterers, florists, etc...for helping you turn your ideas into reality. You don’t have to be so formal about it, though. A simple WhatsApp or Facebook group message would serve. 

-Aiding your favorite vendors:

Your relationship with your vendors and service providers should be based on mutual respect and full acknowledgment that the whole process is purely business oriented. If you appreciate the service you’ve been offered, then make sure to leave a proper review on one of their social media accounts, or you could tag them in your wedding photos and videos. 

-Collecting photos and videos:

You have got to have a ready-made website or group where your guests can send or upload all their recorded wedding material to/on. Surely, the quality of the photos won’t be superb but you want to have as many reminders of that beautiful day as possible. If your guests still haven’t got the memo, this is the time to remind them to get on with it. 

-Following up with your photographer:

Your photographer will definitely need time to edit and ready your photos before giving them out to you. This is the time when you ask your lens wiz for a sneak peek, a teaser, a peep!

-Postpone the whole thing for a while!

This is not a cruel joke, we meant it. Yes, all of the above points are important and should eventually be acted upon but it’s also okay to sit back and unwind a little because you’re no roboCop and there’s nothing wrong with a little bit of recklessness. 

Skim through our to-do list without fear or anxiety of having to get everything done fast. The most important thing is for you to stay sane and enjoy your honeymoon to its fullest and without any distractions. Everything else can wait.
