After the big day is over and you start to come down from that high, it is a great idea to sit down with your new husband and just talk about how the day went. A wedding recap can help you bond as a couple, learn from your mistakes, and solidify your favorite memories.
What was your favorite moment and why?
Talking about the moments that stood out to you can help you remember different aspects of your wedding that you might have forgotten or missed the first time. It’s also a great way to start learning what matters to your husband. And try to keep those things in your mind for when you want to do something special for him! For example, if his favorite moment was dancing to your favorite song, recreate that moment on your first anniversary.
What was the most stressful thing about the wedding?
Having a wedding recap conversation can also help you learn what bothers you and your husband about stressful situations. Talk about what bothered you and how it could have been handled differently. How could you have supported each other better? Keep this conversation in your mind too. Because stressful situations are going to keep coming and it is always good to know how to handle it better next time!
What do you want to remember the most?
Did something really funny and unique happen? Or was there something so sweet that you really want to memorialize? Talk about the things you want to make steps to remember and then come up with a way to do that. Some ideas are to frame your vows or to make a shadow box of your wedding invitations, favors, dried flowers, and other little memorabilia.
Tell each other what you were thinking the moment before walking down the aisle.
A wedding recap wouldn’t be complete without remembering that moment when you first saw each other. Spend some time talking about those feelings and how glad you are to have made this big step together.
Having a wedding recap is a great idea to pull all of your thoughts and feelings about the big day together. You just got married! Celebrate that and enjoy the culmination of that event.
