There is nothing I love sharing more than photos of my incredible couples having the time of lives during their engagement, wedding and anniversaries, but today we’re doing something a little bit different: we’re dishing out some wedding planning advice that has nothing to do with the wedding. (Crazy concept, right?) Early spring is prime wedding planning season, and it’s exciting to see brides buzzing from task to task like dainty little bees, it can be tough to watch some brides become all-consumed by planning. There really is a lot to look forward to before sealing the deal as husband and wife, but so often this season of life is rushed through instead of enjoyed.
I often reiterate to my sweet couples that I’m a champion for their relationship, not just their wedding. As such, I wanted to share a few ideas of ways to spend quality time together pre-nuptials (that’s right, this is the FUN type of wedding planning advice ;-)). And I only have one rule in order to maximize relaxation and unwind for just a bit: no talking about the wedding.
You’re here to have a marriage, not just a wedding. Don’t neglect this time you have together to grow (and have a little fun while you’re at it.)
