I spent today running between Planet Snoopy kids rides and “big person” roller coasters at Carowinds theme park in Charlotte with my family and some friends.
When I wasn’t circling on the carousel for what felt like the 100th time or waving enthusiastically back as my girls whisked quickly around in a hot air balloon or commenting on the gorgeous flowers scattered strategically throughout the park—the florist in me never really sleeps—I took a few wonderfully welcome breaks testing my inner daredevil with my husband.
And as I sped through the air at speeds that should terrify me, held only by a molded hunk of metal, it occurred to me… I love spending time with my husband. And these moments we steal together are priceless.
Now, what has this to do with wedding planning?
It’s more important than ever to remember your significant other exists during your engagement period. I’ve seen more than a few brides get so caught up in the dress and the centerpieces and the invitations that their fiancés kind of get left by the wayside.
Take time for yourselves!
Is planning important? Sure—I do it for a living, so you know I’ll agree with you on that one.
But it isn’t the only thing, and to make sure you have a happy spouse at the end of the aisle to say your vows to, don’t let it consume your life. Plan special date nights, leave sweet notes, pick up a surprise pack of favorite beer on your way home from work. Remember all the things that got you to this point in the first place!
You’re only engaged once. Each phase of your relationship is precious, so don’t let it slip away while you’re nose deep in bridal magazines!
If you’re having trouble balancing the two, wedding planners can absolutely help take some of the stress off and free you up for those gooey romantic candle-lit date nights. Give us a call at Knots ‘N Such – we’ll be more than happy to help you out!
