The Best Way To Welcome Home Newlyweds

We are just melting over this sweet and sneaky way to surprise the newlyweds in your life...

Here's how it works: Couple gets married. Couple heads off on their honeymoon. Couple's besties (or moms or sisters, etc.) sneak into their home while they're away and decorate it with all of their leftover wedding decor. Couple returns from honeymoon to a wedding-themed home and gets to relive all the glorious moments of the best day of their live all over again. Best thing ever! This is hands-down the sweetest way to welcome home your favorite pair of newlyweds from their honeymoon.

Here's how to pull it off:

  • Buy a digital frame and have it set up and pre-loaded with everyone's amateur pics from the night. The new couple will LOVE poring over snapshots of the event while they wait for the pro pics to be finished!
  • Have the guest book out and open so the lovely new bride and groom can casually read through notes from their guests.
  • Thoughtfully place leftover centerpieces, table number cards, programs, and seating charts throughout the house so the couple finds reminders of their special day in unexpected places.
  • Enlarge a print of the couple's invitation or save-the-date, frame it, and put it up on the wall. 
  • Transport all of their gifts to their home and arrange in a neat pile with a notepad and pen nearby.
  • Throw in a bottle of champagne and a couple of glasses for good measure!
  • Pat yourself on the back for being an awesome friend/sister/mom and helping the honeymoon last just that much longer for the happy couple!
