7 Things Brides Forget To Do After The Ceremony

Holly Bowe

You have spent months planning the perfect day & have everything planned down to the precise moment for how your wedding day will progress.  However, there are a few things that most brides forget about, so be sure to pencil in time for each of the following things to ensure YOUR wedding day is perfect!

USE THE BATHROOM

You’re going to be taking photos, greeting guests and preparing for your first dance as husband and wife, so it might be hard to find a lot of time to visit the restroom during the reception. Before you get back in that limo, be sure to take a bathroom break--and don’t forget to take a few bridesmaids with you to help maneuver the dress while you pee.

RETOUCH YOUR MAKEUP

You kissed your groom and maybe even shed a tear or two swapping your vows, so you’re definitely in need of a little retouching before moving on. Bring along a small purse that you can keep in the car (or have a friend or family member hold on it) that has everything you need--oil blotting papers, concealer, lip gloss, etc.--to make sure you look picture perfect all day.

SPEND A MOMENT ALONE WITH YOUR 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. In fact, in Jewish tradition, couples spend alone time in another room to signify their new status as husband and wife.

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. And since you’ll likely be drinking during the party, it’s best to do so on a full stomach anyway.

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. Remember: The band is usually worn closest to your heart on your left hand.

Another thing a bride forgets is to really see the ceremony space.  Often she is brought into the church or the ceremony location as part of a covert operation in order to keep her out of sight. The only moment she experiences the space is when she walks down the aisle.  Take the time to see the flowers and the décor, see the altar where you stood and the space that held your guests.

THANK YOUR PARENTS & WEDDING PARTY

It's a great time to also have a private moment where you express you 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.  The next phase of the wedding day is a flurry of food and fun and after the ceremony is a perfect time for private moments such as these.
