4 Items to Put On Your Newlywed “To Do” List

How to Have a Successful 2022 as Newlyweds

When you get married, you’ll want to start your first year together on the right foot. So, here are four items to add to your newlywed “to do” list.

Set Some Shared Goals

When you’re both on the same page with what you want out of life, it’s easier to stick to your plan and achieve your goals together. When you set shared financial goals, plan for when kids might come along, make plans to travel or dream of early retirement, it’s easier to work towards the same vision.

Setting shared goals financially is an important step to take in your marriage. When you’re both on the same page financially, life is good. When the two of you have different finances, things get complicated.

Here are some questions to ask each other:

  • What does retirement look like for both of you?
  • How many kids do you want?
  • Do either of you want a big family or is one child enough?
  • When do you want to have kids?
  • What are your short-term financial goals? Long-term financial goals?
  • How much do you plan to save for retirement each month/year?
  • Will you both be working, or will one of you be staying at home with the kids until they’re older?

Take a Dream Trip Together

Traveling together is a great way to learn more about each other, bond over new experiences, and most importantly, create memories you will cherish for life.

Always make sure to set budgets before your trip so you don’t spend too much money. If one of you loves exploring and the other prefers relaxing, find somewhere that can accommodate both activities. And finally, take time before and after the trip to discuss whether it was what you expected and if there are changes you would make next time.

You don’t have to spend thousands on an expensive cruise or European tour. Short road trips to memorable places in your relationship’s history can be a great way to revisit those romantic moments that brought you to the big day. The main point here is to take time for each other. When you are in a new marriage or relationship, there are so many little moments you want to soak in. Whether it’s receiving an unexpected bouquet of flowers, having your favorite meal cooked for you, or enjoying a romantic weekend away, try to make time for these little moments.

This helps build a foundation for your marriage. Your best memories together will be in these newlywed years, so make them great ones!

Appreciate the Small Things

The best way to cherish your new marriage is by appreciating all of the little moments you have together. Whether it’s enjoying breakfast in bed on Saturday morning or having an early date night on Friday, try to appreciate all of the little things you share.

Having date nights is an easy way to keep your relationship fresh and exciting. Try visiting new restaurants or trying different activities that are just for you two. It doesn’t have to be extravagant or complicated.

Keep the romance alive by finding little ways to show each other you care. Pick up his favorite flowers on your way home, give her a massage, take time for an impromptu game night…whatever comes naturally to you both. Make time for these little moments so it doesn’t become too much of a chore down the road.

Make time for each other

The secret to sustaining love in your relationship is through quality, not quantity. You want to be together when you both can truly enjoy each other’s company. This means not spending every free moment with one another (which is hard after recently becoming married) and making time for your own interests as well. This will help keep things fresh and exciting between the two of you by allowing each other the space to discover new things and maintain individual identities. Spending time with friends and family is also a big part of being newlyweds.

A new year, a new you in 2022

The best thing about your first year in your new marriage is that it’s the perfect time to start fresh. Knowing you can overcome adversity and become better than you ever imagined is empowering. Why not take advantage of that feeling right now?

Start by making a list of new activities, hobbies, and interests you’ve both been wanting to try. Whether it’s a cooking class or joining a book club, there are so many amazing opportunities that have just opened up for you. You can also use this time as an opportunity to explore your own personal styles more. Being newlyweds means you have the chance to become the best versions of yourselves and start fresh. What better time than in your honeymoon phase?

Newlywed Party

Why not celebrate your first year together as newlyweds with a party? Outdoor parties will be back in swing again in the spring. Why not consider having a “campout” themed party for your first year anniversary? If that’s too rustic, then set up an indoor tent rental and transform your venue into the ultimate dance club.

The possibilities are endless, just make sure you get everyone to join in on the fun! Having a memorable time is what celebrating this milestone is all about and what better way to make it special than planning something awesome together.
