How to Plan a Romantic Weekend

Planning a romantic weekend is a great way to keep spice in a relationship. Both partners can coordinate the weekend, contributing ideas and suggestions. However, providing a few surprises during the weekend keeps your traveling partner guessing and makes it a little more interesting. Start planning and making reservations early if the romantic weekend falls during a busy travel time or the holidays.

Step 1

Select a destination. Ponder interests you both have, activities you enjoy or a place that has special meaning in your relationship. Consider travel time, because you don’t want to cut too much into your romantic weekend. Look at hotels, bed and breakfasts, and cabins. Inquire about special features such as beds, fireplaces and hot tubs. Ask about packages for weekend getaways or romantic weekends.

Make dinner reservations. Choose a quiet, romantic restaurant for dinner. Ask someone where you are staying for recommendations or call the local chamber of commerce for a restaurant list. Search the Internet for websites or call the restaurant to inquire about its services. Ask for a table with a view or a private room. Order champagne so it’s sitting on your table as you arrive. Make any special requests when making the dinner reservation.

Step 3

Plan day activities. Romantic weekends should be relaxing, so don’t plan nonstop activities. Plan one or two excursions, appealing to both travel partners such as wine tasting, a walk or picnic by the lake, a hot air balloon ride or massages at a spa.

Step 4

Bring romance along. Enhance the romantic weekend by bringing candles, flowers, bath gels and a great bottle of wine. Stop at the local store for fresh berries, chocolate and champagne. Consider purchasing a special outfit for your traveling partner to wear during your romantic weekend.
