Anything else to do in the months after the wedding?

We just got married at the end of October and it's been a pretty big relief having everything done (although I do miss having some fun doing the planning!)

Got my name changed finally (just have a few more things to work on with that WHEW what a relief!). Wrote most of the thank you cards. Written our vendor reviews. Made our wedding album...

Is there anything else directly after the wedding that I'm missing or have to catch up on? I feel like I went from doing SO MUCH to doing SO LITTLE now that it's over. We are enjoying our time as newlyweds but want to make sure we aren't missing out on anything! HA!

...Also, any perks you guys know of when you are newlyweds? Like, discounts etc?

    Is pretty quiet and empty sometimes, I also miss planning but now I get to just sit and relax. The only thing I’ll say is collecting people’s picture. I love my professional photos but love seeing the guest side so if you haven’t yet that’s a good thing to do for your memories and phone albums.

    We had our wedding in March, local reception in June, and that summer was the first over a year where we got to enjoy a good ‘ole movie & dinner. It was awesome. It was odd having so much freedom. 😝

    If you registered, keep an eye on those completion discounts. Even after you’ve used up wedding gifts you may want to put your own money toward picking up some of the remaining items. If you haven’t already shared a few photos with your family and wedding party, that’d be great to do. I’m going to buy some flash drives to share some of my fav wedding photos with each of my bridesmaids. Other than that (and the name change, ack so painful, so happy you’re done there), life goes back to normal with a new holiday, your anniversary.

    I know I'll be getting lots of sleep after this wedding is over! I also plan on buying anything else we need from our registry with the discount.

    I miss planning too and it’s been 9 months lol. Nothing special to do besides plan your anniversary trip! That’s what I’m working on 🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️. Discuss future plans? We’ve created a budget, combined bank accounts, changed beneficiaries..we’re done having kids so we’re working on buying a house and traveling. If you don’t have children yet, make sure y’all are on the same timeline if y’all want any!

    Not much directly after. Changed my name and work things. Purchased some registry items from the registry like our roomba Smiley love I picked hotel and booked honeymoon for January. We opened a bank account together. Pictures are done; so my next to-do is thank you cards with some pictures on it, send those out, and start creating the photo albums for both sets of parents. Then one for us of course but I'll focus on that one and prints after the honeymoon.

    I loved getting photos from people after the wedding and seeing their point of view. I'll ask family at the holidays if they have any more! Thanks!

    That's a great idea. I think we are going to gift some printed pictures for the holidays and just make an extensive album for ourselves. How big is your album you give to both sets of parents. Maybe we should do that instead...!

    I don’t remember how many pages it is but there’s a variety on Shutterfly and you can always add pages also!
