Orlando Wedding Advice | 15 Fun Date Night Ideas to De-Stress

Walking through Bok Tower botanical gardens during their engagement photography shoot with Orlando photographer

Wedding planning can be lots of fun especially in the beginning, but after months and months of pouring over every detail things can start to get pretty stressful (especially now in the age of covid)! I’m a firm believer that beyond just the wedding planning, it’s even more important to plan for a successful marriage. That’s why I recommend taking time away from the wedding planning process to continue building your relationship… and date nights are the perfect way to do just that!

Even after the vows are said and done it’s always important to never stop dating your spouse. It can be something as simple as checking out a new restaurant or grabbing an ice cream and wandering around the park together. Sometimes it’s nice to do something a little different so that you can experience new things together and create some really awesome memories!

Here are some of my favorite date night ideas from my own personal list (in no particular order) for fun couples looking to unwind and spend some quality time together.

Granted some may be better left post-covid, but many of these are now available with outdoor seating or socially distanced options so you can still get out yet stay safe.

If you’re into these you may also want to check out Orlando Date Night guide online– they’re one of my favorite go to’s for new ideas and upcoming events around the city. I’m also a huge fan of the “things to do” section of Groupon for fun times and great deals in Central Florida!
