Great Date Night Ideas for When Wedding Costs Have You a Little Strapped


Movie Date

You COULD go to the theater and spend $20 on tickets and another $45 on popcorn, drinks, and candy, but in the digital age there are more economical ideas. Go to the grocery store and get all your goodies for less than half the cost of theater concessions and find an old favorite or newer movie that neither of you have seen on streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, YouTube TV… the options are endless)!


Create Your Bucket List

Ok, this one may not SOUND romantic, but really DREAM together. Talk about all of the things you want to do together before the end of your time no matter how impossible they may seem. Your life goals, dreams, and aspirations are (or at least should be) important to your love. Having a conversation about them can be quite enjoyable and you may learn a few things you didn’t know about each other!



Yes, camping can actually be just as expensive as a hotel at times. But if you’re looking for a change of pace, why not set up a tent in the back yard? Bring out the pillows and blankets and even a laptop and don’t worry about forgetting to pack something (it’s just a short walk to get it). Build a campfire and roast some hotdogs and smores. In the morning, consider making breakfast together!


Free Concerts

In many towns, especially during the summer months, concerts are put on for free or for a small donation. Bring your snacks and some chairs and enjoy a night of music together. The best part? You’ll be supporting the community by just showing up!


House Hunting

Remember earlier when we talked about DREAMING together? There are thousands of houses online with photos and videos. Even if you’re not in the market to buy a home, it can be fun to look! Talk about what your dream home would look like, who knows, you may even find what you’re looking for right now!
