One of the things Bespoken values is building the foundation of your marriage and continuing to build upon that after you say, “I do.” And while wedding planning is fun and exciting, it can also be super stressful and time consuming. So I always advise Bespoken brides to be intentional during this time. Set aside at least one day each week to go on a date with your fiance…and there is to be no wedding talk on your date. At all. None. Zilch. And if you guys need some date ideas, read on.
Indoor Glamping Date: The weather is warming up a bit now, but if you live somewhere and it’s still a bit chilly, you might want to consider an indoor glamping date. Glamping = glamorous + camping. Build an indoor fort. Make a s’mores dessert. Play a game. Watch a movie. And cuddle up.
Complete a triathlon: Not the triathlon you’re thinking of. This is a “triathlon” of events you enjoy doing. Maybe it means you go play pool, play foosball, and then eat pizza. Maybe it means you go skating, putt-putting, and eat ice cream. Or maybe it means you go out to eat, see a movie, and then go out for drinks. The options are endless. Just choose three.
Plan a disposable day. Instead of snapping your photos on your phone and Snapchatting or Instagramming them, drop by your local drugstore and buy two disposable cameras. Then, go on your date. Throughout your date, each of you takes photos of whatever you’d like. Later that day or the next day, drop them off to be developed. And enjoy the surprise results 🙂
Go to brunch. Who says dates are always at night? Go enjoy brunch together. Then maybe walk around a local park.
Take a brewery tour. There are many microbreweries and even a Sierra Nevada brewery nearby. You’ll learn something new, and you’ll likely get a complimentary beer or beer tasting. (We are in Greenville, SC. If you are elsewhere, just Google the closest microbrewery near you.)
