Two days after her lavish wedding to Jared Kushner at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, Ivanka Trump headed back to the office.

“Thanks for all the well wishes everyone!” the newlywed, who is a vice president at her dad Donald Trump’s real estate company, tweeted Monday. “I appreciate it. Back in the office now, but the memories from Sunday will last a lifetime.”

Yet it’s not all work and no play for Trump and Kushner, the publisher of the New York Observer newspaper: The couple will have another reception to celebrate their nuptials, this time for 1,000 guests at the famed Puck Building in downtown Manhattan on Wednesday.

The busy couple have decided to wait until December to take their honeymoon to Africa, where they’ll eventually enjoy some relaxed time as husband and wife.

In two weeks, Trump will be on the scene to open one of her pet projects, the Trump International Hotel & Tower Waikiki in Honolulu, Hawaii.

“Of course I will be there,” she told PEOPLE earlier this month. “Trump hotels are the focus of what I do. Jared is not intimidated by my work. He is incredibly busy, too.”

“Jared and Ivanka are good together,” the bride’s longtime pal Christina Floyd tells PEOPLE. “They understand each other perfectly.”

Ivanka, who is also co-host of The Celebrity Apprentice, has another reason to celebrate this week: Her 28th birthday is Friday.
