Wedding Week Date Ideas

Time to destress and enjoy each other!

The week before your wedding is an incredibly special time. With all the planning and preparations that have led up to this moment, it’s easy to get caught up in the stress of last-minute details. But this is also the perfect time to focus on each other, to celebrate your love, and to make some unforgettable memories before your big day. Here are some ideas for relaxing and enjoying time together in the week leading up to your wedding.


1. Plan a Mini Getaway

Take a day or two for a mini-vacation. It doesn’t have to be far—maybe a cozy bed and breakfast in a nearby town, a scenic drive to a beautiful spot, or a spa retreat. Disconnect from wedding planning and enjoy each other’s company in a different setting.

2. Have a Romantic Dinner at Home

Create a special evening in the comfort of your own home. Cook your favorite meal together or order from your favorite restaurant. Set the table with candles and flowers, play your favorite music, and take the time to talk about your journey together and your hopes for the future.

3. Go for a Long Walk or Hike

Spend time outdoors and enjoy nature together. Whether it’s a walk in a local park, a hike in the mountains, or a stroll downtown to a brewery, being in nature can be incredibly calming and a great way to reconnect.

4. Visit a Museum or Art Gallery

Take a cultural break and visit a local museum or art gallery. It’s a great way to get lost in something beautiful and inspiring, and it provides a perfect setting for quiet moments and meaningful conversations.

5. Have a Movie Night

Choose a few of your favorite movies or ones you’ve been wanting to watch, and have a cozy movie night at home. Make some popcorn, snuggle under a blanket, and enjoy the simple pleasure of being together.

6. Take a Class Together

Explore something new and fun together by taking a class. It could be a cooking class, a dance class, or even a pottery class. It’s a wonderful way to bond, laugh, and learn something new as a couple.

7. Write Letters to Each Other

Take some quiet time to write letters to each other. Reflect on your journey, your love, and your dreams for the future. Exchange the letters over a special dinner or read them to each other in a beautiful, private spot.

8. Enjoy a Spa Day

Treat yourselves to a day of pampering at a spa. A couples massage, a facial, or a relaxing soak in a hot tub can be just what you need to unwind and feel rejuvenated before the wedding day.

9. Explore Your City

Be tourists in your own city. Visit places you’ve never been to, try out new cafes or restaurants, and enjoy the adventure of discovering new spots together.

10. Have a Tech-Free Day

Disconnect from your phones, laptops, and tablets for a day. Spend the day focusing entirely on each other without the distractions of technology. Go for a walk, have a picnic, or just enjoy each other’s company at home.


The week before your wedding is a time to focus on the love that brought you to this point. It’s a time to celebrate each other, to relax, and to create beautiful memories together. By taking the time to enjoy these special moments, you’ll feel more connected, relaxed, and ready to start this new chapter of your lives together. Remember, the little details will fall into place, but the moments you share together will be what you remember most.

Enjoy this precious time, and congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
