7 Romantic Ways To Spend Valentine’s Day

Your engagement is such a special time. Do you remember the high you were on as he slipped that ring onto your finger? But unfortunately, your engagement can get lost in the midst of all the wedding planning.

So make a point of detaching yourselves from all this stressful stuff from time to time, and spend some quality time together, just being a young couple in love. You’ll never get this time back again, and although planning the perfect wedding is important, don’t let it rob you of your special engagement time.

Remember, you will be be married for a lifetime, but you’ll only be engaged for a short while – so whether it’s 1 month, 3 months, or even a year until your wedding day, enjoy every second of the time you are engaged.

So start right now – plan something really special for Valentine’s day.
Take a look at these 7 ways that you could be spending Valentine’s day:

1. Go On A Date

Just cast your minds back to the early days when you were first dating. Do you remember the butterflies, the excitement of getting ready to go on a date? Remember how you used to spend hours doing your make-up and your hair?

Well, recreate those feelings, and do just that. Go on a date. Go to the cinema. Sit in the back row with your arms around each other, sharing a bucket of popcorn and maybe the odd kiss.

2. Have A Picnic

Pack a hamper with some gorgeous food and a bottle of wine and head off for a picnic. Spread your blanket on the ground (weather permitting of course) and simply enjoy the pure luxury of each other’s company. No-one else around – just you and the birds – absolute heaven!

3. A Cosy Night In

Snuggle up together on the sofa and enjoy a romantic night in, with a bottle of wine, a big box of chocolates and a romantic DVD.
Take a look at some of the best romantic films ever made – any one of them is just perfect for a Valentine’s night in:

  • The Notebook
  • Pretty Woman
  • One Fine Day
  • Dirty Dancing
  • An Officer And A Gentleman
  • Titanic
  • Sleepless In Seattle
  • Up Close And Personal

4. A Romantic Meal For Two

If you are looking for something romantic to do on Valentine’s day then what could be better than a meal for two at the most romantic restaurant or pub that you know?

Think log fires, candles, wandering violinists and red roses.
But be sure to book your table well in advance – this will be a busy night.

5. Valentine’s Night Party Cruise

This is one way of celebrating Valentine’s day that I can thoroughly recommend. Last year my lovely husband booked a dinner cruise for us down the river Thames (we were spending the night in London) as a surprise for me.

We enjoyed a romantic meal and drank champagne on the lower deck, and then joined other couples on the upper deck to enjoy the disco. Definitely a night to remember!

6. A Weekend Break

There’s surely no better to spend Valentine’s day than a romantic hotel break. In fact, make it just a little bit more special by staying a couple of nights. This means you can wrap up warm and spend the day exploring the city.

Why not take in a show and then end your day with a romantic meal for two?

7. Don’t Forget Your Friends

Just because you are officially one half of a couple, don’t abandon your friends. In a way you are moving on to a new life, but don’t leave them behind.

OK, so things will be different – you probably won’t all meet up every Friday night and stagger home in the early hours of Saturday morning, but you can still enjoy an occasional girl’s night out. So make some time to spend with your friends, especially the single ones,
