Joie de Vie, a weddings and events planner in Orlando, posted a wonderful article on the importance of taking a break during your wedding planning to make time for just the two of you: Wedding Planning Break: A Weekly Date Night With Your Fiance. I’ve always said I enjoyed dating more than being engaged because it seemed like the wedding was all I would think about or talk with Matt about. So we tried to make a point of having a date night once a week. It’s easier said than done, but Kerline lays out a few fantastic ways to start. It’s important to be very intentional about these dates – otherwise you may suddenly fall back into wedding planning mode. The wonderful thing about establishing a weekly date night is that it’s a great habit to carry into your marriage. Life suddenly catches up with you after you get married and it is hard to make time with each other a priority. Establish the weekly date habit now and you will be setting your marriage up for success!
