Here are 5 ways to ensure you don’t neglect your partner during the frenzied period.
1. Date nights: minus the wedding talk
It’s easy to get caught up in a myriad of details that involve planning for your big day. And while you’re probably doing a lot of it together, having to chat and do wedding related things can become exhausting.
Set aside some time for each other. Go on dates and enforce a strict no wedding talk policy. Take the time to catch up on each other’s day, talk about your wants and needs, but whatever you do make sure it doesn’t involve anything wedding related.
2. Make separate dates for wedding talk
Having a structured day or evening where you can discuss wedding related planning is always a good idea and can help you to get focused and organised.
3. Spend some time apart. Yes it will help, we promise
Remember, getting married is not about the wedding. It’s about the start of a life-long commitment, which means that your entire life won’t revolve around the wedding.
You’re two different people, with different interests. Besides, spending time apart is good for strengthening your relationship.
4. Spend some time with your loved one’s family outside of wedding planning
What better way to strengthen your relationship than by going out of your way to spend time with your loved one’s family?
Look, you’re going to be seeing more of them once you’re married anyway, so building friendships with your partner’s family (unless they’re so awful that even your partner wants nothing to do with them) is a good way of showing than you want to make an effort.
5. Group outings and double dates
Have some fun with your friends. Don’t just make it about the two of you.
There’ll be plenty of time for the two of you to enjoy alone time after your wedding, so make sure to take a lot of breaks in between your wedding planning and spend that extra time with your friends.
Besides, your married friends will also be able to dish out some solid wedding and marriage advice.
