Important Steps to Take After You Get Married

Photography By Stephanie Rios Photography

The Day Of

  • Aim for getting your hair and makeup done as early in the day as you can manage.
  • Hand off the wedding rings to the best man and/or maid of honor for safekeeping.
  • Give your father or best man the officiant’s fee in a labeled envelope, to be handed off after the ceremony.
  • If it hasn’t happened already, introduce your maid of honor or wedding planner to the reception manager so they can deal with any questions during the party.
  • Have a wonderful time and enjoy your special day!


The last thing you want to worry about on your honeymoon is post-wedding details. Appoint someone to do these next steps for you!

  • Make note of any stains on your dress, and send it off for proper cleaning and preservation.
  • Return tuxedo rentals.
  • Carefully wrap and freeze the top layer of your cake.
  • If your bouquet will be preserved, send it to a professional service.

Other Post-Wedding

When it comes to intentional details such as thank you notes, it's important to take the time to do them yourself!

  • Keep your gift log updated while writing and sending thank-you notes as timely as possible.
  • If you were pleased with their service, send each of your vendors a thank-you note.
  • Write online reviews about your venue and vendors so other couples will know what to expect.
  • After the honeymoon, call and thank each attendant one more time.
