The engagement period can turn into a stressful time, usually the shorter the engagement period is the higher the stress levels can be. There is a lot of work that goes into the perfect wedding, but it is well worth it in the end. Enjoying your engagement is important, if you do not take the time now you won't have happy memories later.
During the engagement you may feel like your relationship suffers, and if that does happen it is time to take a break from wedding planning, even if the break is only a weekend, a day or a few hours. Make time for each other. Go on dates again, dedicate blocks of time to each other and limit the time you mention wedding plans during this time, possibly to no time spent on it at all.
This can be a time to revisit all the things you did together in the beginning of the relationship. Try to have dates which emphasize activities which are either really fun and whimsical or romantic in nature. Go to an amusement park. Go ice or roller skating. Have a picnic in the park. Go to a 4 star restaurant or go away for the weekend.
During the engagement period, when times get rough or stressful, just remember that you are doing this together and all the hard work now will pay off with a wonderful wedding and reception and memories to cherish for the ret of your life.
Even thought it is hard to believe, many women do not take the time to simply enjoy their engagement. Being engaged is a wonderful thing, something that should be cherished, a time to be thankful. Being engaged means you found the one person that you are looking forward to spending the rest of your life with, and they feel the same. The hard part is remembering to take the time to remember why you said yes in the first place.
