First Comes Marriage, Then Comes the Honeymoon, Then Comes…

You’ve planned for months, maybe even years for that special day when you and your love becomes Mr. and Mrs. It’s one of the biggest and most important days of your life.

Followed by a romantic honeymoon. Whether it’s for a week or a weekend, somewhere exotic or just a short car drive away, it’s a special getaway for just the two of you to celebrate the biggest day of your lives.

After you said, “I do” and enjoyed the honeymoon, then what?

Then you get to enjoy the rest of your lives together as husband and wife. It’s not always easy, but it can be fun, enriching, and fulfilling in so many ways. But right after the wedding and honeymoon are some things that will help you get a good start to your new lives together.

This Shutterfly infographic is a great checklist for newlyweds, from the important and necessary things like changing your name on important documents and looking at new insurance policies to the fun stuff like creating wedding photo books and DVDs:
