Today, we’re continuing our wedding week features (in honor of the six month mark of newlywed-dom that John and I reached over the weekend) with a post by Natalie, of SimplyBridal.com. She’s sharing five fantastic date night options for us married folk, which I personally can’t wait to try out! (P.S. Hope you guys have a very safe and thrilling Halloween!)
You’ve done it. You walked down the aisle, married the man of your dreams and had a fabulous honeymoon. Now, you’re back home and engaging in your usual daily activities. Your routine makes you wonder, is dating officially over? Of course not. Dating doesn’t end with a wedding and dating can be so much more fun after the wedding. Just follow our tips for five great dates once the ring is on your finger.
For the Night Owls
Every now and then meteors light up the night sky and what is a better way to watch them than with a glass of wine and a blanket in your backyard or in your car with a thermos of hot cocoa? Simply Google meteor showers to find when the next one will be occurring in your area. It’s free and you get to cuddle under a blanket while the night sky lights up.
For the Early Risers
Believe it or not, some people actually enjoy waking up early. If you and your husband are early birds, why not enjoy an early morning picnic while you watch the sun rise. A beautiful sunrise is one of nature’s best gifts and when you combine it with the love of your life it only gets better.
For the Sensual Couple
Some couples are very hands on, therefore the perfect date doesn’t get any better than tango lessons. Tango teaches your bodies to work together and the anticipation coupled with bursts of energy amps up the sensuality.
For the Music Lovers
Clubs are great places to dance all night, but sometimes you don’t want to deal with the smoke and the expensive drinks to enjoy a song. Well, have no fear because you can create your own club, courtesy of your iPod. Throw some tunes on and have a dance party for just the two of you. You’re guaranteed to like every song that is played and you don’t even have to yell at each other to speak.
For the Homebodies
Let’s face it, some of us just love to stay in bed, pop in a movie and decompress. If that sounds like you, you’ve found the perfect date. Rent a luxurious hotel room in your city and relax to your heart’s content. This way you’re never far from home, but you can feel like you’re miles away. Luxuriate in thick, down comforters, order room service and read the paper. Trust us, the two of you will have plenty of fun without going anywhere.
So you see, dating doesn’t die once you walk down the aisle. You can be married and have a fun and vibrant dating life. Take these tips and choose an activity to do today!
