With so much happening in the run-up to getting married in Malta, all you’re likely to want to do once it is over is relax and remove anything even vaguely wedmin related from your life. But there are some important things that need checking off the list before you can kick back and bask in the newlywed glow. Here are some of the most important things to do after your wedding in Malta.
1. Have your dress professionally cleaned
Whether you have decided to keep your dress as a sentimental memento or resell it to recoup some of the costs, you’ll need to have it professionally cleaned after the big day regardless. From dirty dance floors to makeup, a messy cutting of the cake or a champagne spray, there are likely to be all sorts of stains on the delicate fabric, so work the cost of professional cleaning into your wedding budget.
2. Send out thank you cards
Even in the digital age, the thank you card remains a must; an email or Facebook post just doesn’t have the same appeal. You can have them made to match your wedding stationary if you like, although you’ll find some gorgeous designs available online to thank your guests for joining you when you get married in Malta.
3. Check out the photos on your hashtag
If you set up a dedicated hashtag for guests to share shots from your wedding on Instagram, don’t forget to check them before it’s too late. They’ll only stick around on stories for 24 hours and you’ll be amazed how many candid shots found there end up being some of your favourite photos from the day!
4. Change your name…or not
Whether or not to change your name after your wedding is a whole other conversation to have, probably before the big day itself. If it is something you have decided to do, it’s worth starting the process as soon as you receive your marriage certificate. It’s worth keeping a note of who you have contacted to request the change and who has confirmed too – it’s easy to lose track!
5. Leave reviews for your wedding suppliers
Weddings in Malta mean working with some incredible wedding vendors who spent months invested in making your day amazing. Don’t forget to take the time to thank them and leave a review if possible. It’ll help other couples discover those who go the extra mile too.
6. Freeze your top tier
The idea of eating the top tier of your wedding cake on your first anniversary is as old as time and we quite like it. Plus, a cake as big as most at Malta weddings will never get eaten on the day, so it’s a nice way to stop it going to waste.
Finally, with the planning over and the honeymoon on the horizon, all that is left to do is relax as husband and wife.
