10 Ways to Show your Partner to Be Your Love

10 Ways to Show your Partner to Be Your Love

happy engaged couples

Planning a wedding is hard work. Sadly, it’s not as simple as breezing through gown fittings and landing on that perfect venue – the devil is in the details, and there are tons of them! If you’re in the midst of planning your wedding, you know that getting swept up in (ahem, consumed by) to-do lists might actually be the easiest part of the planning process. But it’s important to take a step back to remember the significance of what you’re planning for. Take the time to show your partner that you’re thrilled you chose one another to spend the rest of your lives with. That said, here are 10 ways to show your hubby-to-be you’re still sane, and still totally in love.

1.    Breakfast in Bed

Sometimes, the simplest gestures can be the most appreciated. Set your alarm clock for 20 minutes earlier than normal, and wake him up with a spread that’s sure to get his day started off right.

2.    Leave a Sweet Note

Next time he opens his billfold to pay for lunch, have him find a note wedged in there with his money. Something short and sweet will do the trick, leaving him with a smile on his face and you in his thoughts.

3.    A Gift, Just Because

Have you heard your man mention something he’s been wanting? Or is there something you think he would love that he doesn’t know he wants yet? Gift him with a “just because” present. Maybe it will start a new trend – one you’re sure to love, too.

4.    Surprise Date Night

Take a random Tuesday from routine to romantic by greeting him with the news you’re taking him out on the town. Make reservations at the new restaurant he’s wanted to try, followed by the movie he’s been dying to see. Consider this “just because” gift number two.

5.    A Backrub

He’s always asking for one – how about offering one up? Sometimes it’s the best remedy for a long, frustrating day – and it’s one offer he’s sure to accept.

6.    Meet for Lunch

Have time off and was planning on using it to plan the wedding? How about fitting a lunch date into the day’s agenda? Head to his office and take him out for a mid-day meal that will help him make it through the remainder of the work day.

7.    The Three Magic Words

Sometimes nothing says “I love you” like, well, saying it. Take the time to let him know how you feel. No, it’s not cheesy, and yes, it’s a good habit to start, if you haven’t already.

8.    Help Out

You’re stressed, but he probably is, too. Ask him if there’s anything you can do to help alleviate the stress, saying you’ll take it on as a team — because after the wedding, you are officially a team!

9.    Show an Interest

There’s so much going on, you’ve probably been guilty of half-listening, half-thinking of the next thing on your to-do list. Show him you care by putting down your phone and giving your full attention to his alcohol rehab presentation for work – you’d expect the same.

10. Start the Fire

As much as men are seen as the aggressor, be the one to make the first move, making him feel wanted and pursued. He’ll appreciate it.

So, as you count down the days until you become a Mrs., use these little tips to show your Mr. the love you have for him – and how excited you are to have the rest of your life to do nice things for each other!
