    When you’re in the throes of wedding planning and trying to make every dollar count, date night can fall by the wayside in lieu of saving some skrilla. And y’all, that’s pretty crappy. Aren’t you getting married because you love each other and enjoy spending time together … and not just on the couch binge-watching Netflix? Plus, wedding planning can get a little stressful, and it’s pretty necessary to take some time to check in with one another and focus on the relationship itself. And really, dates are kind of the best, aren’t they?

    Take a Mini Vacation

    Five for Friday: Fun Date Ideas for Broke-Ass Couples

     

    There’s no better way to fully reset than to get out of town for a minute. Real Bride Peach did it during her wedding planning, and it can make all the difference. Sure, a vacation is spendy, but Southwest has some super cheap airfare offers, and Expedia is usually pretty good for some kickass hotel deals. Or, roadtrip it, yo! Visit the World’s Biggest Ball of Twine or go to the Great American Brewfest. Eat at small diners along the way and set the mission of finding the best apple pie along the way.
