You have already had your special day at your chosen Tulsa wedding venues and now you are on the other side! There are still things to do after the wedding. You should make a list of things that need to be done so you won’t miss anything important. With all the planning before the wedding, you will be all tapped out and won’t want to think about what else needs to be done. That’s why it’s important to make a list ahead of time so you can quickly cross them off your list once they are done.
Get your Deposit Back
It is most likely that your Tulsa wedding venues required you to leave a security deposit with them. Look at your contract to see the time frame that you should receive your deposit back. Barring there were no major problems that day, you should receive your deposit back in full. Most Tulsa wedding venues will mail the deposit to you but check with them to see if you need to come and pick it up in person. The standard time is 2 weeks but check the details so this doesn’t slip through the cracks. Many people have had problems getting their deposits back so hopefully, this won’t happen to you. Check out these WeddingWire conversations so you have an idea of situations that can arise.
Check with your Photographers
Your photographer is most likely on it and will be working on your wedding day photos while you are on your honeymoon. But check with them ahead of time to see the time frame when you will receive your proofs. Also, check with them to see how long after that you will get your final pictures. Most photographers work on a timely basis but look over your contract to see the time frame you are expected to get your final pictures. It’s worth it to have an idea and talk it over with your photographer ahead of time. That way there is no disappointing surprises later!
