We bet planning your  big day is all that takes up your times these days. Everyone is excited just as we are for you! Time flies when you're a newlywed - literally. The first six months of marriage seems to go by pretty quickly but it seems like you spend a year planning a wedding, the actual big day flies by and then suddenly POOF, it's been six whole months. Meanwhile, you guys are still trying to figure out what to do with all the lovely (and hideous) wedding gifts that live stacked in corners of your formerly tidy house. Since you didnt sign up for a Cash Gift Registry.

Not to put a damper on the excitment, we thought to share with you some things that would happen after the frenzy of the wedding.

Here goes!



After the big day you find yourself regretting a number of decisions you took or should have taken. Truth is while we pray for a perfect day, nothing goes on perfectly, something goes wrong but with an event planner or event cordinator, it can be managed.  Just decide now to enjoy your day regardless of anything that happens.

Dont be the couple that says "I wish we had been able to enjoy ourselves instead of trying to please everyone else".



A budget is one of the most valuable financial tools you can have at your disposal as a newlywed. With a budget or spending plan in place, you and your spouse are both able to feel in control of where your money's going. You'll want to calculate your combined income and subtract your combined monthly expenses and debt repayments.


We know you have waited for this day/phase all your life and cant wait to spend the rest of your life together, but sorrry to burst your happy bubble some days you would find yourself missing the days of you and you alone.

Couples who have been married for a long time advise you schedule a "me time". Once a month or every 3 months take that time out for a weekend or a week where you spend time doing things you love. You come back feeling grateful for your union and almost feel like its all new.

Lastly, if you haven’t already, make sure to set up your unique personalised gift chest. Perfect for those couples building their honeymoon fund. It’s free to create!
