Things To Do Between Ceremony And Reception
From Happy Wife Happy Life 

The legal part of the wedding is complete and now you have a window of time to fill. But how do you fill it best? Like everything else involved with a wedding, you need a plan. We have eight things to do during this time that are practical and will you serve you well for the rest of the day.

Like every other detail of your special daythis too needs to be planned! Be sure to set aside the appropriate time frame to do any or all of the suggestions below.

  1. Take 10 minutes to be alone as a couple:
    These are your first minutes as a married couple! Feel free to make out or just stare into each other’s eyes. Whatever you do, make sure you are sitting down because you are going to spend a lot of time standing up the rest of the day.
  2. Eat!
    This is an order, not a suggestion. Now that the dress is on, you totally can! Ask your planner to bring you a plate of the hors d’oeuvres, because chances are you won’t have time to hunt down a waiter while you are greeting guests. You probably didn’t eat much before the ceremony, so before you pass out, eat!!!
  3. Touch up your hair and makeup:
    This is very important, especially since more photos are about to be taken of you then ever before in your life; prom night being a close second. Either arrange for your hair stylist to touch you up, or have your Maid of Honor carry a comb, travel sized hair spray and bobby pins in her clutch. Tell her it’s traditional Maid of Honor duty.

In the Jewish tradition, it’s common that immediately after the ceremony and just before the wedding reception, that the new couple shares a few minutes alone. It’s called Yichud, literally meaning, “becoming one.” It’s a sweet tradition you can adopt as well.

Also: blot your T-Zone with oil-absorbing sheets and reapply lipstick and lip liner if needed.
