What are three ways to enjoy the engagement period before you start planning a wedding?

Cupid’s Advice:

Engaged? Next comes the wedding with all of the appointments and decisions and research that has to be done — it can be a nightmare. Though, here are some tips on how to enjoy the engagement before starting the stress of planning a wedding:

1. Discuss long-term goals: Instead of jumping right into wedding talk, which can take up an entire engagement period, hold the reigns on that for now. Instead, why not focus on the future that goes beyond the wedding day. If the two of you have not moved in together yet, focus on that aspect. 

2. Have an engagement party: Nothing says enjoyment and relaxation like a celebration. Perhaps a few friends will throw an engagement party for you or if you’re the do it yourself person, plan a small one for yourself. Don’t go overboard though — that’s for the wedding.

3. Spend time together: Engaged couples can become so caught up with wedding and marriage talk that they forget who they are as a couple. Don’t become lost in all of the future aspects of an engagement and be sure to embrace the here and now.
