Post Wedding Milestones: What Comes Next?

Whether your wedding day is already behind you or the big day is still to come, it’s only natural that you’re beginning to wonder what happens after you say “I do”. After spending the last year or more planning your dream wedding, it can be a shock to the system to suddenly have nothing specific to focus on – and that’s where we come in.

Today, our friends over at Jaquar are looking at the many different milestones you can enjoy after the big day – helping you see the many exciting things there are to look forward to after your wedding day.

The long-awaited honeymoon

First thing’s first: after the wedding typically comes the honeymoon – and even if you have to wait a few weeks or months before you jet off, having this to look forward to can seriously cure those post-wedding blues. Whether you’re heading back to your favourite holiday destination, taking off on a two week cruise or embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime trip around the world, there’ll be plenty of last minute planning to keep you busy ahead of take off.

Building a home together

While the number of people who cohabit before marriage continues to grow, it seems that for many UK couples, wedding trumps mortgage. Whether you and your betrothed are yet to get a foot on the property ladder or you’ve been putting off those expensive home renovations, the post-wedding period is the ideal time to get serious about creating your very own love nest. From the bigger decisions like what to use each room for, down to which taps to choose for the bathroom, be sure to appreciate every aspect of building a life together.

Expanding the family

If you’ve been looking forward to expanding your family, the months after your wedding will be the perfect time to start thinking about what this looks like for both of you. Whether you’re keen to have children or can’t wait to rehome a rescue dog, this is the time to get excited about planning what’s next for your family. From pets to babies, adding to your family can be a huge commitment, so be sure to openly discuss your thoughts and feelings about this with your other half before you make any life-changing decisions.

Memorable anniversaries

There’s a theme associated with every wedding anniversary up to 60 years – so if you want a fun way of acknowledging your marriage year-on-year, why not stick to the traditional themes and work them into your celebrations? From buying a paper gift to mark your 1st anniversary to heading off on a luxurious trip for your 31st, you can get really creative as the years tick by – finding fun and unique ways to celebrate your marriage.

The post-wedding slump might be unavoidable, but if you consider the big picture, there are plenty of wonderful milestones ahead for you both to enjoy!
