It’s an exciting time for you! Your significant other (finally) popped the question over the holidays, and you’re engaged! After your proposal you’ve jumped head first into wedding planning and it’s all you can think about. Your Pinterest inspiration board is overflowing, you’ve looked at wedding planning timelines, and maybe even started setting up appointments to see a Dallas Wedding Venue or two. Although this time can be incredibly exciting, some of you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed and stressed out about the process. Let us be the first to remind you, it’s not all about the wedding planning process. It’s about you and your future spouse, the love that you share and the marriage that you will have. So… don’t forget to celebrate the small stuff and plan plenty of “engaged” dates along the way, here are a few ideas:
- First Date: Go back to the site of your very first date together and reminisce about the early days of your relationship. Think how far you’ve come!
- Plan a weekend away: make time for a weekend getaway, before the true chaos of wedding planning sets in. Choose a relaxing bed and breakfast, or an adventurous Air BnB. Keep the wedding talk to a minimum, and enjoy each other’s company in a setting outside your typical busy lifestyle.
- See where the map takes you: Pull out a map of your city or state, close your eyes, and pick a spot. You can explore a new part of your town together, or even roadtrip somewhere out of the ordinary.
- Date Night In: forget the hassle of a reservation and create a romantic evening at home. Cook a meal together, whether you try a new recipe or an old favorite. Create a playlist of songs you two love, and set the table with candles and flowers for a romantic atmosphere.
We hope you enjoy your “engaged” date-night, but even more so, we hope you enjoy the wedding planning process. If you’re interested in scheduling a tour at a modern, trendsetting, downtown Dallas Wedding Venue, contact us today!
