Planning your wedding and preparing for your upcoming marriage is such an exciting element of this chapter of your life, but it is also a time where couples often put date nights on the back burner. With a tighter budget to pay for the wedding and stressful days planning that make you just wanna relax at home, we totally understand.
However, spending some time with your fiance away from the hustle and bustle of wedding planning is absolutely crucial. Here are 5 low cost date ideas for engaged couples in Los Angeles.
Greystone Mansion- Tucked away in the hills of Los Angeles, this historic mansion is the perfect low cost date idea. Complete with breath-taking views and lush gardens, this is the perfect place for a weekend picnic lunch date. (Oh, and we mention you can get free parking?).
Hike- LA is home to some of the most iconic hiking trails, like Runyon Canyon and the Hollywood Sign trail. Plan a morning or afternoon to enjoy the weather, take in the scenic views, and work on your tan! (Plus, this is perfect for your #sweatingforthewedding goals).
Beach Day- Is there a more romantic date than a sunset beach date? Spend the afternoon in Santa Monica soaking up the sun, swimming in the waves, and bike riding down to Venice before sitting down to take in the beautiful sunset. (To make the date even more cost effective, pack your own lunch and snacks!).
Happy hour- Whether you are a fan of unwinding with a good glass or wine or just enjoy going out for dinner, happy hour is a great low cost option for engaged couples. You can keep it local with one of your favorite restaurants, or look up fancier happy hours in West Hollywood at places like SUR.
The Getty Center- Located right off the 405, the Getty Center is home to buildings full of inspiring artwork and meticulously designed gardens. Spend the afternoon exploring all this incredible place has to offer.
We hope these 5 low cost date ideas help keep you and fiance connected and having fun throughout your entire engagement!
