Valentine’s Day is one of those subjective holidays: You either really like it and want to celebrate it or you don’t want to deal with all the candy, flowers and other crap associated with it.
Chances are as an engaged couple you’re feeling a bit drained on the romance and money for romance departments, given all the wedding-related plans and details you’re deciding upon. Have no fear, here are 3 simple ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day as an engaged couple.
3 Simple Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day as an Engaged Couple
Go on a Wedding Hiatus
Agree to not talk about your wedding or wedding plans for one full day. This will help relieve any tension between the two of you about the wedding but also rejuvenate your planning mojo.
Schedule a Photo Shoot
When you are in love it shows. Why not capture that love in a photo? Valentine’s Day is a great day for manifesting your love and a fun couple photoshoot is a great way to commemorate what may be your only Valentine’s Day left before your married life begins. You don’t even need to hire a photographer! There are a ton of great video tutorials out there on how to take great selfies (the photo in this post were taken by the couple!).
Feeling stumped for photo ideas? Personally, when I think of Valentine’s Day I think of Julia Child (my hero). Julia, and her husband Paul, were famous in their group of friends for their somewhat saucy, yet cute, photo cards they would send. Here are some great Julia inspired photo ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

De-stress & Decompress
Between work, wedding planning, and family commitments chances are you’re both feeling a little tense. Relieve that by spending a relaxing evening together. Why not consider cooking a simple or complex (whatever suits your fancy) meal together or crafting some artisan cocktails? Or even better (in my book) why not turn on Netflix and crack open a bottle of bubbly and binge your favorite show together in your jammies? Or why not try making your own detoxifying facial masks, lighting some candles and relaxing?
Any of these ideas are a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. These options allow you both to reconnect and focus on what’s important; the two of you and the love that brought you together.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
