Did you and your partner finally say ‘I do’ and make things official?
Before you head off to your honeymoon, there are a few things you should take care of. Firstly, write thank you notes for all your guests. Whether you or your partner are planning to take each other’s last name, you should look into the process of changing your name by deed poll. Also, remember to get your wedding outfits professionally cleaned and preserved.
If you are heading to London for your honeymoon, here are fun things to include in your itinerary.
Catch a Play on West End
The West End is London’s equivalent of Broadway in New York City. Whether you are a theatre nerd or you’ve never seen a play before, watching a play on the west end is an unforgettable experience. From exceptional performances to extravagant production, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity you can’t miss.
Plan a Picnic
There’s no shortage of beautiful parks and gardens in London. We suggest packing up your favourite snacks, a charcuterie board, a bottle of rosé and heading to one of the countless parks.
