I thought I would share something I personally am doing. With all the craziness of planning a wedding, especially counting down a month to go, I am sending my FI an email a day (starting 30 days out from the ceremony) documenting one reason why I love him, what I appreciate about him, and why I can’t wait to marry him.
I want the days leading up to our marriage ceremony and our married life together to be filled with positivity.

That’s such a sweet idea <3 My SO started something similar on Pinterest a few weeks ago, every day he pins something new which describes why he loves me, and then writes his own little memento underneath with his own thoughts. We’re still over a year away from the wedding, and I wonder how long he can keep it up haha I definitely think more couples should partake in this kind of thing 🙂

sunshinesparkles: That’s beautiful! Well done for focusing on what a wedding is really about! I’m going to do this too 😉

sunshinesparkles: I think that’s a lovely idea. If I wasn’t so terrible at being a girl I’d totally do the same, but statements of sentimentality make me gag or crack up or just really make me want to make a fart joke, it’s unfortunate. Luckily DH is kind of the same way so we can express our love in fart jokes 😀 I told him once that if he ever wrote me poetry I’d probably throw up, he was visibly relieved. But I often wish I had it in me to do sweet stuff like that so kudos to you.

That’s cute. My DH and I are too much jokesters for that to work, I think … in the middle of some drama (old relatives being sassy), one of his sisters said “WHY are you marrying this woman again??” He responded, totally straight face, that I kept bugging him about being added to his Amazon Prime Streaming account and it was the easiest way without incurring an extra membership fee.

That’s a fabulous idea! I’m sure your FH will love this!
I wish I would have done something like that. The closest thing I’ve done to this is when my DH went on an international missions trip recently, I wrote him a note for each day he was gone, sealed each note in a separate envelope, and numbered the envelopes in the order I wanted him to open them. I felt close to him and involved in his trip while writing the notes, and he loved having a way to stay connected to me while he was gone.
Best wishes for a beautiful wedding and a wonderful marriage!

I keep thinking about doing something like this, but FI is not very outwardly emotional. Like if I say something nice or text him something nice I’ll get a “gosh I love you”. I can tell from his reactions when something makes him happy. But it hard to tell if it will make him happy enough to be worthwhile, if that makes sense. I know he won’t cry on our wedding day or anything.

Thanks everyone. Not all of my messages to him are super sappy or romantic. Some are funny and only inside jokes to us. We aren’t super serious people either, so some are “cheesy” and some are hillarious. I know he won’t cry or tear up on our wedding day, he’s not that type of person, but I enjoy making sure that he knows just how much I love him and am excited to marry him and become family.
