5 Signs You Need To Spice Up Your Relationship

The final weeks before your big day will be the biggest test of your companionship. It’s completely normal to get sucked into a rut of pre-wedding blues as at times things can get pretty over-whelming. Take a step back if you notice any of these signs and make a conscious effort to spice up your relationship. After all, you should be enjoying and savouring every moment of the process.

The Slightest Thing Sparks A Row

With emotions running high, tensions can reach a peak at the final hurdle before the wedding. It may feel like everything turns into a struggle and an argument. Look and the bigger picture and don’t sweat the small details, the most important thing is the vows you are about to make and the next chapter of your story.

You Have No Interest In Wedding Planning

Ivory or white sashes. Blush pink or marsala invitation designs. Who cares. Many brides and grooms can feel a little over-whelmed from all the stress that comes hand in hand with decision-making and organising. Your relationship has probably centred around wedding discussions for at least a year and this can often side-line more important elements. Take a few weeks off planning for your big day. This will give you time to focus and take a breather. Things will still be standing when you get back to it.

You Could Park A Bus Between You In Bed

Now, we’re not saying you should be hanging off each other like a pair of hormonal sex-mad teens. But if your backs are turned to each other and you have resorted to playing footsie with the wall, then it’s a pretty good indication there’s something not right. Planning a wedding is probably the most stressful things you will ever do. Don’t let tiredness take over and ruin what should be a blissful period of excitement. Make a conscious effort to hug more often and say I love you. The heat will be back between the sheets in no time.

Netflix & A Takeaway Is A Standard Date Night

We’ve all fallen into this rut. The guy from Dominos can list off your choice of toppings when he answers the phone and he throws in two extra cartons of garlic dip just because he knows they’re your fave. House of Cards is addictive, but maybe it’s time to take a break. Break out of your comfort zone, get dolled up and go out on the town together. Whether it’s dinner and drinks or a fun-filled adrenaline activity, it will definitely put a smile on your face.

Ann From Centra Knows More About  Your Week

Your local shop assistant knows more about the trials and tribulations of your wedding, that Sean from Sales stole your lead and your dog got neutered last week. Come to think about it, you’ve spoken to her more than your partner since last Tuesday. Maybe you need to take a step back and re-evaluate your relationship. Just sayin.
