Take in the Moments

After a couple makes it official and they are now married, they seem to forget to do something. What is it that they forget? Legalities, thank you cards, or payments to vendors? Nope, they forget to take in all the moments with one another!

Smell the Roses

Once it is official, make sure you and your significant other are taking time to reflect on the life changing decision you just made. Take as much time as needed to realize the level of commitment you just made to each other. For example, go on a hiking trip with one another to take in the beauty of nature and one another. This will help minimize any doubts and reassure you that you both made the right decision!

Prepare for Thanksgiving and Black Friday

Organize your plans with one another accordingly to ensure a smooth Thanksgiving Day! Develop a schedule for the day as far as what time and how long you will eat with one another’s side of the family. This will prevent any feelings from getting hurt, and also makes it seem like you both are on top of everything. Therefore, also have an idea of how you will take on Black Friday shopping together! Don’t miss out on deals that will help build areas of your lives together, such as a lawn mower, new furniture, and new vehicles. Make the first Black Friday together hard to beat in the future!

Consider the Future

Think about what both of you want in the future together. Do you want a pet or kids, perhaps both? Realize that no one but yourselves determine this, and decisions you take now will have an effect on things later in the marriage. Tell each other how you feel about this, and when you would consider to be the right time. The more honest you are with your feelings with one another, the more progress will be made!

Understanding the Legalities

Now that you are officially married and loving your newlywed life, there are just a few things you should know. There is no need to stress, because we are here this week to help you better understand the post-wedding legalities!  Everything from paperwork to changing your name, we have you covered.

Marriage Certificate

After you are married both of you must sign your marriage license, this paper is the proof that you were legally able to get married. It is then the wedding officiant’s job to mail the license to your county office.

This should only take a week or two for it to be processed. Once that form is sent out you must fill out a form to request copies of your official marriage license document. Make sure you get a decent amount of copies, because you are not allowed to mail the official document!

Changing Your Name

This is the fun part! You are officially married, but you have not changed your last name yet. Try to enjoy this post-wedding task, because it is definitely one of the more enjoyable tasks. In order to change your name, you must apply for a new social security card and drivers’ license with your new last name. You can take this as an opportunity to finally get a drivers’ license picture you love as well.

Health Insurance

The next step is to either join your partner’s health insurance or put them on yours. Most insurance companies allow you to do this freely up to 30 days after the wedding. Even if you don’t complete this task within the 30 days after your wedding do not worry, because you won’t be penalized. The best rule of thumb is to see whose policy can save you more money in the long run if both of you already have health insurance!

Want to Write Reviews for Your Vendors, but Don’t Know Where to Start?

You’ve Come to the Right Place!

Everyone talks about the “must haves” or the “to do lists,” for planning a wedding; however, no one talks about what happens after the wedding. If you just had your dream wedding or if you are a very proactive bride and you don’t know what to do after your big day ends, we are here for you!

Why You Should Write Vendor Reviews?

The biggest way to thank your vendors is by writing them a review, because it helps their business grow. If you weren’t happy with your vendors, you should still politely let others know. This helps other engaged couples when they are deciding who to hire for their wedding

When to Write It

Only after you have completely ended your experience with your vendors should you write your review. Even though your vendors might have done a great job on your wedding night, it’s not uncommon to run into paperwork problems afterwards. This is something you would want to include in your review.

Do not wait to write your vendor reviews, because you want the memory to be fresh in your mind. The longer you wait the more important details you will likely forget.

Things to Keep in Mind

Regardless of whether or not your review is a positive or a negative one, you should try not to exaggerate. A great way to prevent this from happening is to recall specific instances when you are making your arguments. This leads up to our next pro tip: be specific!

The more specific you are, the more useful your review is. Our final note is to keep in mind that what you say and how you it could either positively or negatively affect other couples. Think about how useful a well written review would have been for you when you were planning your wedding.
