1. You have time to de-stress
Once the wedding celebration has concluded, you and your new spouse will want to take some time to just be.
A wedding is typically an all-day event that starts in the early morning hours and can last into the evening. As a bride, this is your relax day before walking down the aisle – but nervous emotions can sometimes tire a girl out! Not to mention greeting your guests and thanking them for attending your special day.
A good thing doesn't always mean you won't be tired at the end. When you choose to leave for your honeymoon a day or two after the wedding, you have time to take some much-needed relaxation with your person.
Need a pro tip? Stay an extra night at the hotel and schedule a couples massage for the next morning. This is sure to have you both feeling relaxed!
2. You have time to enjoy one another
One-on-one time during the wedding day with your soon-to-be bride or groom is rare. It's so important to take time after the wedding, enjoying one another's company.
Even though you'll see each other you won't have one-on-one, quality time with your partner during the wedding. Need a pro tip? Spend at least five minutes alone just sitting with your spouse or going on a walk in the park. (You get extra points if you hold hands!)
Make sure to take some time alone to celebrate the fact that you're now MARRIED!
3. You have time to process
Your wedding day can seem like a whirlwind at times! As you go through the wedding day, make sure and take in each moment.
When you opt to leave for your honeymoon a day or two after the wedding, you and your partner will have time to talk through the events of the wedding day. You can share your wedding highlights, anticipations, and overall joy in being united.
