Some couples flourish during the whole wedding planning process. He genuinely cares about the exquisite engineering of a tissue pom pom, she has no problem staying in the budget, and they can actually go longer than an hour without talking about something wedding related. Some couples make wedding planning look like a piece of cake. A piece of wedding cake, to be exact.
Then there’s the rest of us.Wedding planning is stressful. There are millions of decisions to make, thousands of dollars to spend, and one promise to make for forever. That’s a lot of stress, and it’s natural for ANY relationship to crack under that kind of pressure. However, just because it’s natural doesn’t mean we should let it be an excuse to let our relationship’s health slide.
Now let me invite you to the Couples’ Game Night on July 22nd hosted by Nashville Marriage Studio & Wedding 101 – the perfect way to save your relationship from wedding planning disaster!
Don’t believe me? Here are 5 reasons you should show up for Couple’s Game Night:
1) It’s a date night. A free date night. A free date night that you didn’t have to plan. I shouldn’t even have to give you 4 more reasons. Just email me now at email@example.com and let me know you’ll be there (space is limited!).2) Ok. I guess you want all 5 reasons. Fine. You’ll meet other engaged couples. More than likely you’re at that age when making friends is starting to get really hard. The only people you see are co-workers and they’re usually boring or old. And now you’re getting married so you’ll need married couple friends which you will find at the Couple’s Game Night!3) Meet a premarital counselor (that’s me!). You probably didn’t even know there were counselors devoted to helping couples get ready for marriage. Well, now you get to meet one! If you were at all curious about premarital counseling this is a great, low key way to meet me and ask any questions you have about how to make your marriage last.4) Kick other couple’s butts and prove you’re the most awesome couple around. Have you played Apples to Apples yet? It’s awesome, and a great way to find out if you two really get each other.
