Now that you’re engaged and have officially begun your journey towards your new life, we understand how overwhelming and anxious this entire period of your life would be making you. But juggling between lots of wedding preparations, your beauty regimens, pre-bridal sessions and family time, we hope that you’re not missing out on giving time to your husband-to-be as well.
This post engagement phase is not just about preparing for your wedding. It is essential that you make the most of this time to build a much stronger bond with your partner before finally walking into your marital haven. And especially if you’re in an arranged setup, using this time to get to know each other better should be on your priority list too. And no we’re not just talking about the casual dinner and movie dates.
So to lend you some inspiration on how you can do that, we made you a list of all the fun and romantic things you can do with your hubby-to-be post your engagement. Start taking notes and go get planning!
1. Plan a weekend escapade
A quick getaway amidst all that wedding planning would make up for one amazing idea to unwind and relax whilst spending some quality time with each other. It won’t only be rejuvenating but, you’ll also get to know each other a lot. If you want you can also plan a family vacation together so that all of you can gel well with each other.
2. Shop together for your wedding
While there would be a lot of wedding shopping that you’d be doing both with your family and besties, try doing a bit of it with your partner too. Shopping together for your wedding would be really fun and you’d also get to figure out each other’s likes and dislikes in a much better way. After all, you’re going to spend the rest of your life shopping mostly with each other.
3. Learn a new skill or hobby together
It’s like they say, “it’s never too late to learn anything you want to.” So how about joining some cooking, dance, or art classes together or simply pursuing your hobbies together? As much of a happy and playful time it’s going to make up for, it’s also going to teach not just you but, both as to how to enjoy doing the things that your partner does. Bonding over such fun activities is one of the best ways there ever could be.
4. Hang out with each other’s homies
Now that you’re going to be a major part of each other’s lives, you’re also going to be a part of their gang. Needless to say, break the ice and start hanging out with his social circles too. Go out with your partner and his friends and get to know each other. Apart from that, go on brunches and dinners with each other’s families as much as you can to make it all feel familiar and like your own.
5. Get a pre-wedding shoot
A pre-wedding shoot with your bae is a great way to get closer to each other and spend some amazing time together. Be it getting a pre-wedding in your city only or having a destination one, this part of your post-engagement phase is not only going to be happening but also, a love filled one.
6. Talk. A lot!
Having a strong communication game is an essential pillar for any relationship or marriage. Which is why we suggest making the most of this time to practice and learn good communication with each other. Talk a lot, share your dreams and secrets, listen to each other, discuss about your future together and learn each other’s love language. Build your relationship on a strong foundation of a clear & healthy communication and trust.
