Wedding planning is exciting, overwhelming and can be time consuming but let’s take a moment to remember why you are doing this, you’re in love! And you need to prioritise your future wife/husband in the planning process as much as anything else. Make sure that you take time out for date night, and try not to talk wedding plans (hard, I know), this is only one day, you’ve got the rest of your lives together! With the help of a few friends, I’ve put together a list of 50 (okay maybe there’s a few more than 50!) date ideas for engaged couples, or date ideas for couples generally, to get you started, enjoy!!


And if you’ve got any others, please let me know and we can add them!
