Pre-wedding date-night ideas to countdown in style

Pre-wedding date night ideas to countdown in style.

The wedding planning process may be fun, but it’s also extremely stressful. In fact, more than half of the engaged couples surveyed found wedding planning stressful, with the word ‘overwhelming’ often cropping up when describing the process of organising the biggest and best day of your life. With this in mind, understanding the signs that say it’s time to take a break from planning is important, and one of the most productive ways to spend that free time is with your future spouse.

Wedding planning can, after all, take its toll on the relationship, with many couples finding the need to reconnect with their partner more pressing than ever in the months and weeks leading up to their wedding day. Here Eternity UK shares their advice for preserving the health of your relationship amid the chaos of wedding planning:

“This big day is for you and your partner to initiate a marriage. As much as wedding planning is important, don’t lose the enjoyment over stress that won’t matter in time to come. Organise date nights without wedding talk and alternate who arranges these between the two of you.”

As recommended above, a well-timed date night or two can give you that much-needed break, and help keep things sweet between you and your partner. Read on to discover the best pre-wedding date night ideas to pencil into your diary…

Laugh out loud together

They say laughter is the best therapy, so give yourself and your partner the ultimate dose of the good stuff on your upcoming date night. There are tons of comedy gigs and nights up and down the country, with the nation’s most talented comedians ready and waiting to make you laugh out loud.

Walk down memory lane

Remembering what all this planning is about is one thing many couples have to remind themselves of as the pre-wedding chaos takes over. Use your date night as a chance to take a walk down memory lane by planning something extra special and ultra-personal for your bride- or groom-to-be.

You could recreate your first date, buy tickets for their favourite show, go on a sightseeing tour of all your relationship hotspots, tick a to-do off your bucket list together, or simply plan an evening in with all your photo albums and reminisce over a bottle of wine.

Have a fun-filled day out

Whether it’s the thrills of a theme park that gets you both going, a relaxing day at the beach, or an educational trip to the zoo or museum, taking a day out to do something you love and create memories is always a great pre-wedding date idea.

Learn a brand new skill

Take a class to take your mind off wedding planning and back to spending time with your partner. From art and cooking to something a little more active, there are classes and courses to suit all tastes and budgets.

Transform into a tourist

Seeing a different side of the place you call home is another interesting date idea that’s certain to create lots of wonderful memories. Become a tourist for the day to check out some of the best (and worst!) attractions your town or city has to offer.
