When it comes to planning your wedding, you leave no stone unturned to make sure that the biggest and the most important day of your life is amazingly well-planned. From booking the best vendors to finalising the grandest venue, from choosing the most-gorgeous wedding outfit to booking the most exotic honeymoon location, you make sure you do it all.
But, have you ever paid heed to the things you need to do post your wedding that are very important and you conveniently ignore? To make you more familiar with them, we bring you a to-do list for post the wedding.
So, you had a beautiful grand wedding, invited everyone you know and got hundreds of pictures clicked. Is that all the proof you need to show you are married? We fear not. Do you have any legal proof of your marriage? For that, you need to go to get your marriage registered on papers immediately after your wedding.

Your wedding would not have been the success it was without the people who were a part of it. They made time for you and all your functions, and brought you expensive gifts. So, the least you can do to show your gratitude is to send each of them thank you notes.

After your wedding, you get busy planning and packing for your honeymoon and after you return from your holiday, you get caught up in adjusting into your new life. And somewhere in between all of this, your expensive designer wedding outfits get dumped in the back of your closet for years. Do not let that happen. Send them out to the dry cleaners the next day and preserve them carefully.
You will surely get a lot of gifts that are repeated or you do not need at all. Make sure you return or exchange them right away when they are still within the exchange time period or be stuck with unwanted merchandise.

Yes, we know that is the most tedious and boring job of all, but did you feel the same while getting them clicked? No, right? So why delay now? Do not trouble your photographer by unnecessarily delaying the approval and selection of pictures. And, don’t you want to see what your designer wedding album will look like once it is made?
You must have bought a few extra things for the wedding celebrations that did not come in handy, and were lying unused. So, save your money by returning all the unused items well in time. The shopkeepers might not take them back if you go to return those six months later.

Your wedding stylist must have used some hair accessories or even jewellery on you that you took on rent. Before the rent per day reaches a whopping amount, have them sent over to the stylist the very next day.
Well, that is if you want to. There is a lot of paper work involved in the process and all your documents need to be sent for the name change. Better to be done with the formalities sooner than later.
