5 Ways Celebrating Valentine's Day Can Help You With Wedding Planning

Valentine's Day Ideas for Engaged Couples

By

Celebrating Valentine's Day as an engaged couple can be romantic and exciting. But it can also be a great opportunity for easy wedding planning. Here are 5 ways to celebrate February 14th that will also help you create a romantic wedding.
  1. Take Pen to Paper There's nothing quite as romantic as receiving or giving a heart-felt love letter. Even the act of writing one can heighten the romance as you remember all the reasons you fell in love in the first place. But that work can also help you write your own wedding vows.

  2. Pop a Cork Valentine's Day is a great day to celebrate by drinking some champagne. So why not try out a bottle or two that you might serve on your wedding day? Make sure it's worthy of your celebration, and not just some cheap swill. Here are my Top 10 Inexpensive Champagnes and Sparkling Wines.

  3. May I Have This Dance On romantic evenings while we were engaged, my husband and I would play our first dance song and have a slow dance in the living room. It allowed us to get used to the rhythm of the song and to dancing together without feeling self-conscious. It's a great way to end a Valentine's evening in a romantic and loving way.

    If you feel like you need a few lessons before you can feel comfortable slow-dancing, many dance studios offer inexpensive Valentine's Day group lessons. Try out the studio as a date to see if you might want to schedule some private lessons there to work on your first dance. First Dance Songs

  4. Get a Little Sexy Lingerie is a pretty standard Valentine's Day Gift. But add to the romance by picking out something that you'd like to see her or him in on your wedding night. Though white is a standard color for wedding night lingerie, make sure that it's not too virginal or demure. You want to send the message that you're hot for your partner. You might also practice some of these sex tips for a magical wedding night

  5. Practice Your First Kiss Sharing a kiss on Valentine's Day is practically mandatory. But why not practice how you'll kiss at the altar? Imagine the beauty of that moment, and the hugeness of your love for one another. Try kissing softly, gently, and then passionately and demonstratively. Maybe you'll want a dip or some other grand gesture. You could even inject a little humor. In any event, it's a great way to spend an hour kissing, all in the name of "practice".
