While the idea of stepping over the threshold of your new home on your wedding night may sound appealing, the reality is a lot less magical. The preparation involved in both events is immense and trying to manage both projects at once could break even the most organized person.
To help your planning, here are a few benefits to waiting until after the wedding to movehome.
1. Add It To The Gift Registry
The phrase ‘2 birds, 1 stone’ comes to mind. As you prepare to move home and find your new kitchen is missing the perfect espresso machine, what better way to save some money than adding these items to your gift registry.
If you want to go all out and create a full weddin, as well as registry, look to this website for information on branding.
Your guests will appreciate knowing their kind gift will not be put to waste. And you can rest safe in the knowledge your new home will be fully furnished when you’re back from your honeymoon.
2. Take Advantage Of Your Holiday
Now if you are organized, and have the cash to splash, you could arrange a full-service moving company to get the packing started while away on your honeymoon! Taking a few weeks off after the wedding to settle into your new home can be a great way to adjust to married life.
3. Reduce Pre-Wedding Stress
One way to reduce pre-wedding stress is to not also have the stress of moving house at the same time. It’s likely that getting married will prompt new questions to be asked that you hadn’t considered when choosing the perfect apartment pre-wedding. Are you in a good school district?
Discussing future plans and this can often result in reprotising new elements of your future family home; extra bedrooms, or a home office space, etc. Why not take the extra time to figure out what’s most important to you both.
4. Start A Newlywed Project
Build your bond with your betrothed. If one, or both of you are interested in interior design or enjoy taking on DIY projects then building/designing your family home could be the perfect project to start your marriage.
This could be the start of a new hobby for you both. Or the start of a new business venture? Check out Bekins Moving Solutions for tips on setting up a home office.
5. Recruit Friends & Family
What better time to recruit friends and family to help with packing than when they are all gathered around you and saying ‘If there is anything we can do, just let us know!’.
Well yes, there is!
You could even sweeten the deal by hosting a dinner at the new house on moving day. With family and friends in from out of town, it’s the perfect opportunity to show them where you’ll be spending married life.
Wait! There’s More!
