3 Post-Wedding TasksPosted by Hannah Carrier on January 26 2017.
The wedding just got over, it concluded beautifully and all the pieces fell into place rather nicely. Months and month of hard work and frustration created a fruitful outcome with an event that will be one of the most memorable days of your life. The guests, family and the friends all enjoyed and celebrated your big moment of life with you and showered you with love, blessings and of course, gifts! But now what? Before you sit back and relax, make sure you get these 3 things in order to save as much of the wedding as possible.
Preserve your wedding gown
After weeks of hunting and trying and a lot of money, you found the perfect dress so if you’re going to keep it, consider giving it some care and attention. Get your gown professionally cleaned by a place that specializes in wedding gowns. Inquire from your seamstress or the boutique where you bought your dress to vouch for a expert. Until then keep it in a dark and dry place, folded or rolled with a clean white sheet. You also need to make sure that after preservation a storage box is available to keep the dress protected from moisture, exposure to sunlight and extreme changes in temperature.
Create an Album
Get the most of your wedding by finding friend’s and family’s phones and cameras to add to the photographer’s collection. For memories sake, print the photos and make a photo album because it will not only be a great heirloom but also a quick access to memories and nostalgia in future whenever you are in the mood for it. Start by picking collecting the photos from your guests, photographer and family and then keep your favourite shots. Try organising the album into stages like dressing up, the ceremony, first dance, etc. Create a flow that tells the story of your special day.
Organise Wedding Gifts
Go through your wedding gifts and write thank you cards to let your guests know that you’re grateful. There might also be things that weren’t on your registry and that you already have that you might need to return discreetly. You should also try to return the items that you bought for the wedding but didn’t use. If you can’t return them, earn some good karma by donating them to a friend who just got engaged or to a charity shop. Find a place in your home for all of the gifts so they’re sure to be used and properly appreciated!
