Everyone knows that planning a wedding is definitely a time-consuming task. It can drain you of all your patience and energy, and before you know it, your relationship is suffering. Since this is the last thing you want, leading up to your big day, it is essential to know how to stay connected as a couple.
It goes without saying that every minute of every day cannot be dedicated to wedding planning. To keep your love alive, be sure to take regularly scheduled breaks. On those breaks, engage in the kinds of activities that helped you fall in love in the first place. Break days should not involve a discussion of your wedding in any way. They should be completely focused on enjoying each other’s company, without anything interfering with that.
One of the biggest mistakes many couples make is talking only about their wedding. Though it is an important day, it is only one day in your life. So instead of wedding talk, make time to talk to each other about what your married life would be like. Envision what you both want out of it and discuss which elements of your loved ones’ marriages you want to bring into your own.
You may get so wrapped up in planning everything else that you neglect to practice your wedding dance. But this is something that you want to focus on in order to help you maintain the affection that will carry you through the rest of your lives.
For this reason alone, it is crucial to choose a song that resonates with both of you. Ideally it should stir up your feelings for each other every time you hear it. And unless you are a natural dancer, you may be nervous about doing it in front of all your guests. Remember practice makes perfect. It doesn’t even matter if you and your fiancé aren’t great dancers, as long as you are comfortable moving together. Just don’t over practice to the point where the dance loses it magic. Feeling comfortable in each other’s arms is your ultimate goal.
The days leading up to your wedding will be hectic. Taking time to cherish the small moments between you two will go a long way. This can be something as simple as having a leisurely cup of coffee together in the morning. The small moments in a typical day are the ones you need to cherish while planning your wedding. And the closer it gets to your wedding day, the more important these moments are. Doing things like riding together to your rehearsal dinner gives you a chance to spend a few quiet minutes alone before the big day. These are the moments that you will appreciate even more as you embark on the rest of your journey.
