One of the things we hear from brides over and over again was how fast everything unfolded and all the things they forgot to do. So after you walk down the aisle as husband and wife, make time to check these must-dos off your wedding day to-do list.
Spend alone time with groom. You’re finally husband and wife, and there’s nothing rude about sneaking away for a few minutes for some alone time. It will give him time to gush over how gorgeous you look and for the both of you to reflect on the ceremony
Eat something! One big bridal complaint: Many don’t get to sample the delicious food at their own wedding! You spent so much time agonizing over the menu, you deserve to enjoy it along with your guests
Take off your veil. If you don’t want to wear it all night or for the first dance, it’s probably easiest to take it off right after the ceremony since you’ll have to be super careful not to ruin your ‘do during the process. This is a task your maid of honor or mom can help you with.
Put your engagement ring back on. During the ceremony, you’ll want to leave your ring finger on your left hand free so your groom can slip on your wedding band. You can simply move your engagement ring to your right hand or have someone hold it for you until after your vows, when you can slip it back on for the reception.
Thank your parents and bridal party. It's a great time to also have a private moment where you express your gratitude for all they have done for you and your groom on this special day. It's also an opportunity for these close friends and family members to have the bride and groom all to themselves for a final moment before they have to share you with the rest of the guests.
