So you’re just coming down from the rush and excitement that came with your holiday proposal, and whether your future spouse has or not, you’ve jumped all into wedding planning. Your Pinterest inspiration board is in full swing, and you have appointments set up to see Austin Wedding Venues like The Allan House. It’s an exciting time for you and for your family, but we’ll be the first to remind you, it’s not all about the wedding (funny coming from an Austin Wedding Venue right?). Keep in mind throughout the wedding planning process that it’s about you and your significant other, it’s about the marriage you’re creating, and the relationship you have.
To help you remember this throughout the process, we wanted to give you a few “engaged” date ideas that you could plan along the way.
- 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 one of our Austin Wedding Venues such as our downtown, historic Allan House, or our rustic, Barn inspired Brodie Homestead – please contact us today!
