1. Start early – As planning a wedding can be a full time job, the sooner you start preparing for your move, the better off you will be. Waiting until the last minute will make you both more stressed, creating unnecessary tension. Last minute planning can also cause you to forget important items and deadlines.

2. Make lists and share responsibility – Not only should you make lists of everything that needs to be accomplished, but you should also designate tasks for each person to handle. Perhaps you may be the one turning on the utilities, while your spouse arranges an appointment for the cable and internet to be installed. Delegating responsibility will ensure all items and appointments are completed on time.

3. Discuss money before moving – It’s important to be honest with one another about what you can and cannot afford, as many companies will charge fees prior to moving and even after your move is complete. Plan together and decide how you will split the payments during your moving process.

4. Consolidate fairly – When you are moving in together with your significant other, sharing closet space may mean less room for your personal belongings. As important as your possessions are to you, your spouse’s items are just as important to them. Don’t expect them to leave all of their belongings behind as it is all about compromise.

5. Hire the right movers – Nothing can make moving day more disastrous than hiring the wrong movers. Make sure you ask what their insurance covers and pricing details, read past customer’s reviews and take the time to make sure they are licensed professionals.

Happy moving day, newlyweds!
