Now that your man has officially popped the question, it’s all about preparing for the big day. Seeing the bling on your finger means, bachelorette party, a jaw-dropping gown, and an envious holiday location. With so much to do and very little time, you might get too engrossed into all the preparations till you forget that these are your precious moments of singlehood before saying “I Do”.
It’s important to set some time away to enjoy your bachelorhood before being bounded in the holy matrimony. After that, you may be slightly restricted to do certain things, but it differs couple to couple. When it comes to marriage, it’s not only with the man you love, but with a big added baggage, his family. You will need to reconsider many factors before you finally say “yes” to the all-girls trip to Europe. Now that you’re still single and the only approval you need is from yourself, knock yourself out with this fun bucket list!
Take a vacay with your besties
Sounds like fun? Make it happen then! Taking a vacation with your closest friends is not only therapeutic but takes your mind off from the stressful long wedding to-do-list. Travel wherever you like, or somewhere you’ve been meaning to visit with your girls. Enjoy like a child, party like a bachelorette, and make friends like in you’re in college!
Take on a solo trip
If travelling solo has been a long unfulfilled dream, do it before you get married. The fun and experience you garner when travelling solo bypasses any other trips taken with friends or fiancée. A solo trip widens your internal horizon and leaves you with relishing memories which will stick around for a lifetime. When you travel solo, you spend all the time alone and you’ll be surprised to learn things you didn’t know about yourself. It’s a self-discovery and carefree holiday which everyone needs at some point in their life. You will make new friends, face any hidden fears, learn to adopt and adapt, and most importantly, you understand yourself better.
Be ready to face the storm
Be aware that after marriage, things might not always be as rosy as you expect. There will be times when your opinions don’t match with your partner or both of you bickering over a pointless issue. Being aware of all these beforehand will save you a lot a heartache later on. Plus, planning is wedding is no breeze. Dealing with two or more family’s way of thinking, difference in opinion, budget, and many other issues can create some friction between you and your partner. Be mindful of these situations and know how best you can overcome the situation. Also, letting off some steam with your partner before the wedding in a correct manner can help you to overcome future disagreements easily.
Face your fears
Want to embark on something outrageous? Do something that fights your fears. Pet a snake, go skydiving, jump on that hot air balloon, go sea diving, or anything else you would never have imagined yourself doing. This way, you will know yourself much better. Who knows if you’ll have the time for all this later on in life, right?
