5 Things You Need To Do After Your Wedding

The photos, the good times, your Uncle's dance moves... the memories are all still fresh! But it's not time to relax just yet, tick these five simple things off your to-do list as soon as you can after 'I do'.


1. SEND THANK YOU NOTES

There’s nothing more personal than a handwritten note expressing your sincere thanks that your loved ones came to celebrate your special day (and no doubt gave you a sweet gift). Keep it consistent with branded stationery, or simply buy a stack of inexpensive pre-made thank you cards – it’s the written message that matters.

2. HAVE YOUR DRESS DRYCLEANED

Dirt and spills on your dream gown surely show a good time was had, but it’s important to have your wedding dress professionally cleaned within a week or two of your wedding day. Regal Drycleaners have the well-earned reputation of being the best dry cleaners in Auckland. Their service and skills are not only top notch, they are also mindful of the impact drycleaning can have on the environment. As well as being environmentally friendly, this approach is garment-friendly as well, because they use a gentler cleaning fluid than most drycleaners in New Zealand!

3. DECIDE WHAT YOU'RE DOING WITH YOUR DECOR

You painstakingly gold-sprayed 100 mason jars, and created billions of meters of bunting in your chosen hues. But what to do with it now? Often brides may keep some of their décor as a keepsake (pretty blush bunting would look amazing in a little girl’s room if you’re planning on having children), but wedding décor can also be sold as a set on trading sites like TradeMe or a reputable Facebook Wedding Buy-Swap-Sell group.

4. CHANGE YOUR NAME ON LEGAL DOCUMENTS

If you’re taking your partner’s surname, you can change things like your bank information and bills letters/invoicing pretty simply. However things like your Driver’s Licence and Passport can be costly to update purely for a surname change; sometimes it’s best to wait until these expire and do it then to save a little dosh.

5. RELAX!

Your free time is no longer taken up with wedding planning and obsessing over every little detail of your big day! Take some time out with your partner to reflect on your wedding and what it meant to take those special vows. Congratulations from all of us at New Zealand Weddings – the next chapter starts here!
