This Sunday is Valentine’s Day and what better way to celebrate it than reconnecting as a couple? With all the stress of wedding planning, Valentine’s Day is a great way to stop and take a step back and remember why you got engaged in the first place!
Revisit the past. Go to dinner where you had your first date; rent the first movie you watched together; go dancing at the club where you first met. Enjoy a little look back at how far your relationship has come!
Don’t overdo it. If you’re in saving-for-the-big-day mode, spending a lot on Valentine’s Day may not be in the cards. That doesn’t mean you can’t find other ways to be romantic. Make a special dinner together. Turn off the TV and put on some music. Light some candles. Turn off your phones. Make it a night not about wedding planning, but about each other.
Turn up the fun. Did you go on fun, silly dates as a new couple, but have left that behind? Why not do something just for the fun of it again? Go bowling, ice skating, or to the aquarium. If you’re reading this from a place much warmer than Connecticut, hit an amusement park, go mini-golfing or on a hike.
Get a change of scenery. Book a hotel room, order room service, and pretend you’re on vacation, even if it’s just for one night.
And Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us!
