When a couple used to plan a wedding—long, long ago—they did so from their respective, separate homes. In fact, they probably did it from their parents’ homes because that’s where they lived until they tied the knot with somebody. There were formal, scheduled meeting times to discuss the guest list, pick out flower arrangements, and talk about how the couple wanted the menu to look. Now, with so many couples cohabitating before they get married, wedding planning looks very different. Living together changes pretty much every aspect of a relationship so, it’s to be expected that it would affect one of the most stressful times of a couple’s lives: the planning of the big day. When you live together, there’s almost no escaping wedding talk. But, it also has its perks. Here is how living together changes the wedding planning process.


It takes over your relationship

The wedding planning process can consume a relationship when the couple lives together. Just like you accidentally wind up talking about chores and errands when you live together, because you think, “We have all the time in the world to talk about other things later—we live together!”, you wind up talking about the wedding all of the time. And that time to talk about other things never comes.
