So, what are you meant to do now that the wedding has been and gone? All you planning and organization helped you create such a great day for you and your partner, and now I’m sure you are surprised by just how much spare time you now have on your hands! Well, all the hard work that goes into planning a wedding may be over, but there is still plenty to be done. After all, you need to keep the post-wedding blues at bay! Here are a few handy tips to help you do just that.
Enjoy Your Honeymoon
There is a one really exciting thing you can look forward to after your wedding – the honeymoon! Traditionally, most couples used to jet off on their honeymoon just a couple of days after their wedding, but these days, it is a lot more common for newlyweds to wait a couple of months before they go. If you decide to wait this long, you will have plenty of time to plan your dream vacation after the wedding is all over. That way, your honeymoon planning won’t get in the way of your wedding organization!
Send Thank You Cards
It’s a nice idea to send thank you cards to all your guests who attended the wedding ceremony and reception. You can thank them for their attendance and gift. If you wait to send these after your honeymoon, you can also include a little note in the card about what you got up to while you were away. It’s a nice idea to make these thank you cards just as attractive as your wedding invites. You could either make some yourself using something like Adobe Spark’s Card Maker or enlist the help of a graphic designer. That way, your guests will be really impressed once their card comes through the mail!
Some couples find that they have nothing to look forward to after their wedding, especially if they chose to go on their honeymoon straight after the big day. If this is your situation, it is a good idea to start planning ahead for your next vacation or fun project so that you have plenty to look forward to. Once you can look ahead to something new and exciting, you will instantly settle into married life and will forget you were ever troubled by the post-wedding blues
Find Other New Wives
If you are feeling glum after all the excitement of getting married is over, you should try and connect with some other women who have recently wed. I’m sure you will all be in the same boat and will be able to chat to each other about the various joys and problems of married life. You will also find that this new social circle offers you plenty of support when you most need it. Not only that, though, but it will help to widen your group of friends which is always a good thing!
The future is very bright once you beat these blues!
