Your wedding was amazing and everything went off without a hitch! Except maybe that one groomsman getting a little too crazy!
You’re thrilled. And exhausted. And giddy every time you hear Mrs. __. Or say “my husband.” It’s awesome, isn’t it.
We should also say “Congratulations on surviving wedding planning!” Wedding planning season is a huge deal. There are a ton of elements to coordinate or decide about, even if you hired a wedding planner. Not to mention the stress that all those decisions can place on a relationship!
Well, enjoy the fleeting moment, because your todo list is about to start spitting out more items like the receipt at the grocery store. After saying, “I do,” there’s a whole other type of tasks you have to accomplish.
And, we hate to break it to you, but they’re more of the change-your-life-forever type of tasks. But don’t worry, we are here to help you out with a cool infographic from the US Tax Center.
Oh, don’t know who they are? Don’t worry. We didn’t either, until they sent us this infographic. They’re located at IRS.com (not to be confused with IRS.gov). But all you really need to know is that they’ve created a great starting point of tasks to complete after you get married.
Check it out.
Of all those items, which one do you think should be at the absolute top of the list? Surprise! Journaling! Do. It. Now.
Seriously, it will all run together in about a week. The day was already a blur, and you’ll forget every detail if you don’t write it now. Of course you have a photographer and maybe even a videographer, but they didn’t see what you saw or feel what you felt.
And they might not have captured that hilarious spill that crazy groomsman made out on the dance floor. If you write it down, you’ll have a lot more chances of remembering how one of the most important days of your life went down.
See? Your name change was probably at the top of your list, right? That is probably the absolute most fun you will ever have at the Social Security office. Enjoy every second of it because the next time you’re there might not be so fun. And all the employees will definitely enjoy at least one happy face for the day.
But, there is a whole host of places you’ll also need to change your name, too. Thankfully, there’s an infographic for that.
And don’t forget those thank you cards. Don’t put it off. Really. Get it done as soon as you can. Make it a game to have all the thank you cards mailed out (just written doesn’t count!) before your marriage license arrives (if it’s being mailed). And reward yourselves if you meet your goal.
Review your wedding vendors. We’re hoping you didn’t need an infographic to remind you, because we’re hoping you’re so in love with your wedding and and wedding vendors that you can’t wait to write that review. It melts our heart every time we get a new one.
