The Things To Consider Before Getting Married

I got married earlier this year and it was an incredible day. There was so much to think about when it came to the general organising of the wedding day itself, and there is no shying away from the fact that it can be a little stressful. Especially when you have children and your family to coordinate. While you may have no problem with deciding on your cake or venue, mulling over the guest list and seating charts, there are some general admin bits that every bride to be can forget. I wanted to highlight some of these things to do before you get married to help you build a fantastic future, once you become a Mrs.

Save more

The closer you get to making final decisions and paying for things, the more you start to worry about money. The sheer cost of getting married is astonishing when you read about it in the news, and I only know from experience how expensive these days can be. But when you have to pay for it? It’s torturous! Then again, everyone has a different budget, and some will always be bigger than others, so I’m sure you aren’t facing the monumental costs that others might be. Still, it’s a long road ahead, so it might be worth going setting up another savings account and start putting a little extra aside each week or month to help pay for things when those invoices start rolling in. Because they will!

The chat about the future

Sure you may have discussed how many children you might want to have, or at least I hope this conversation has come up for you. You may have even talked about future aspirations, your hopes, and your dreams. But often that is when the future talk ends. It is important to discuss about your future beyond the fun stuff. What might happen when you retire? Whether or not you need to consider a Funeral Comparison when it comes to covering funeral costs in the future and all of the chat about life insurance and getting your finances and commitments covered. Once it is done, then there isn’t much need to go through it all again.

The name game

One really important decision to make when it comes to getting married is deciding on the name situation. Traditionally, many brides will take their partner's surname, but in this modern day you can choose not to. It’s nice to seal the family together with the same name, especially if you have had children before getting married, but it is equally important to keep your own identity, and your name may be a big factor in that. Some people keep their maiden names for career or professional purposes, but change it legally for normal things like banking and finances. The choice is yours but make sure you are happy with the decision before the big day comes around.

It isn’t always just about the dress, the flowers, and the venue, you need to ensure that the little details are discussed and finalised. But once you have sorted those out you can get back to all the fun stuff.
