Drivers license, update beneficiaries on life insurance and investments, estate, living will, discuss how you handle finances/budget (if keeping the separate accounts vs joint, who pays for what expenses and how you’ll handle purchases (over $500, we have to talk to each other first). Had we done this first off, would have limited SO many fights...ie is it your money is my money and my $ is my $ ;-), joint money, or we each have our own $ and manage it separately

All of the good ideas above PLUS
Take some time to think about what kind of a spouse you want to be. What would make your ‘future you' proud to have been a spouse? Think about what you would never want to change about your relationship? Reflect on the fact that some of the things you love about each other may change with time, due to demanding careers, kids, fights about each other’s families etc.

But before all of this, enjoy this moment. And if you feel like you want to do something with your spouse, do it NOW! Never postpone!!

Happy married life!!

I think this is the way OP is showing excitement. There are lots of things to join your life together- combining health insurance, becoming the other’s emergency contact, and adding them to inherent your investments, getting return address labels with both your names, joint checking for joint costs, plus a household Netflix/Hulu username & password, and updating Facebook. Congratulations!! This is such a fun time, enjoy!
