Clean and Store Your
Have your dress dry-cleaned as
soon as possible. Use a dry cleaning
service that specializes in wedding
dresses so that they use the right
solvents. Once cleaned, store it in a
cool dry place.
Change your name
Ideally, you should change all your
IDs within 90 days of getting
hitched. Here's how:
1. Change your driver's license by
going at http://mtr.gov.tt/home/ser-
vices/licensing-authority to find
forms. Most states require you to
bring your marriage license to the
DMV as proof of your new name.
2. Change your passport. Go to
x for more info. You'll send in a cur-
rent passport, a photocopy of your
marriage certificate, and possibly
new passport photos.
3. Name change Board of Inland
Revenue. Check out http://www.fi-
to see how. Don't forget to tick off
the married option.
4. Call all of your credit card com-
panies to get your name changed.
Send Those Thank You
Remember those who helped you
plan your special day and show your
appreciation by sending them thank
you notes. Nowadays and e-card
will do, but if you want to go the tra-
ditional route by mailing them that's
going to take some more time and
effort--you decide. If you decide the
latter it it goes along way in terms
of expressing appreciation.
Tackle Registry Returns
So despite a clearly outlined reg-
istry list, you've still managed to re-
ceive two rice cookers and three
bread boxes. Find out the srore's re-
turn policy and get on it as soon as
Finalize Wedding Album
On your first anniversary,
wouldn't you love to pop in your
wedding DVD and flip through your
album? Don't put off your photo se-
lection and video requests too long!
Most photographers and videogra-
phers issue a standard contract that
gives you six months to a year to
select album photos and edit
footage for your DVD. If you don't,
you may have to pay extra. Talk
about a buzzkill!
Figure Out Your Finances
No one likes having "money talks,"
but hopefully you had this one long
before you walked down the aisle.
Many married couples opt to merge
their single accounts into a com-
bined one, so definitely bring it up
now if you haven't yet. All that en-
tails is a trip to the bank to fill out
the necessary paperwork and get
new debit cards and checks made.
When the two of you made it of-
ficial, it meant more than just a tacit
agreement not to hog the covers. In
the next two weeks, you'll want to
talk about changing beneficiaries --
most newlyweds switch their
spouse to their beneficiary on work
and life insurance docs. Call your in-
surance company and HR depart-
ment at work for these forms.
Next, decide whose work health
insurance plan you'll use by compar-
ing cost and treatment options. If
you're the one making the switch,
make sure the doctors you like are
on the new plan.
Within a few months, talk about
drawing up a will that reflects your
newly combined asset. Use your
family lawyer or ask friends for a
The wedding was all a whirlwind. After all those months
of preparation the day came, you went on your honey-
moon and then returned to start life as newlyweds.
Post wedding tasks now lie ahead, don't be over-
whelmed, just get it done--the sooner the better.
