Try to take some time to relax before the wedding and the week before try and have a date with the Fiance. We had a couple times of alone time in all the craziness leading up to the wedding and it was great.

The big day don’t stress. What’s done is done and just let whatever is going to happen, happen. Don’t stress if it doesn’t go exactly as planned.

Make sure to have some snacks wherever you are staying that night. You will be hungry!

The next mornig we were both kind of cranky since we were both so hungry and had to track down some of our stuff.

This two weeks has been awesome. The stress of wedding planning has been gone and since we’ve got home we’ve just had so much fun. We’ve spent tonnes of quality time together and it hasn’t had to be planned. Also shopping for things we had wanted with gift cards and cash has been super fun.

I would make sure you spend time alone with your Darling Husband during the reception.  I felt like the night went so fast and we didn’t see each other enough.  Take a minute every hour to be alone.

This is something you do before the wedding but it affects what comes after.  Make sure you talk about your finances, goals, debts, income, etc and how you are going to take care of the family finances.

Money is the number one stress in a marriage.

Living together is an adjustment.  You have to get used to all the little things that you don’t see like leaving up the toilet seat, leaving socks on the floor, whatever.  The rose colored glasses come off a bit and you get to see the reality of a relationship and not the best behavior that you see when you are dating and visiting their place.  Talk about the breakdown of housework before moving in together.  That way you aren’t doing all the cooking, cleaning, shopping, laundry, etc if you don’t want to do all those things or don’t have time because you both work full time.

For us, being married isn’t much different than before since we were in a relationship for years before getting married and lived together.  I think the big change for a lot of people is lving together and starting to be intimate since a lot of people wait until marriage.
