Happy Valentine’s Day you beautiful bride! Have you made special plans for today?
Perhaps you’re more like me and love simply having a day without any plans at all!
One thing that I won’t be doing is spending too much time online, Sundays are a low-tech day for living in the moment … V-Day or otherwise.
But I did want to pop by with a couple of last-minute date ideas that I think are fun and romantic, without being too crazy, and will help you have a real connection with your hubby-to-be.
Whatever you do, try to take a break from wedding planning and enjoy your first (or last) Valentine’s Day as an engaged couple. It’s simply wonderful.
4 Simple Valentine’s Day Date Ideas For Brides
Go to the Farmer’s Market!
This is one of my favorite Sunday activities to do with Nate as it gets us out of the house and planning what delicious and healthy meals we’ll make together each week. I also loving sneaking some porcini mushroom ravioli into our basket!
Play Board Games
I love board games and we recently/finally bought Scrabble (it has been on the over-due list for years, believe me). Sunday mornings and Thursday nights have become Scrabble time, with a coffee or glass of wine and some relaxing music it is pretty damn romantic!
Make Chocolate Mousse
This mousse recipe is one of my favorites to eat at any time of the day. Date days are less fun once you’ve come down from the sugar crash, but this chocolate mousse is as delicious as it is nutritious #winwinnomnom
Take A Long Walk
I love the conversations that Nate and I have when we go for long walks. Leave the phone at home, pull on a coat if it’s cold, and head outside for a walk and a little tête-á-tête.
Now I’d love to hear from you! What is your favorite, low-key date idea? I’m always looking for new inspiration so please leave a comment below!
