Post-Covid we might have dreams of the wedding we’ve always imagined. Family and friends, big or small–many women have thought about it at one point or another. See if your dream venue reveals your love language (You can have multiple love languages, but we will guess the one you respond most to!)
Your love language is words of affirmation.
You value verbal acknowledgments of affection, including frequent “I love you’s,” compliments, words of appreciation, verbal encouragement and acknowledgment, and often frequent digital communication like texting and social media engagement.
“Written and spoken shows of affection matter the most to these people,” couples’ says psychotherapist Fariha Mahmud-Syed, MFT, CFLE. “These expressions make them feel understood and appreciated.” Listening and empathy are important to you. Handwritten notes and spoken apologies go a long way with you. This is the most common love language.
If a beautiful woodsy wedding is your dream venue then your love language is physical touch.
“People who communicate their appreciation through this language, when they consent to it, feel appreciated when they are hugged, kissed, or cuddled. They value the feeling of warmth and comfort that comes with physical touch,” says Mahmud-Syed, Psy.D.
You feel grounded in a relationship when physical affection is accessible and often cultivated. Romance and feeling close to your partner are very important to you. If you ended up in a relationship where the physical side faded completely out it would be a dealbreaker for you.
Wedding in the Gardens
Your love language is quality time.
You feel the most adored when a partner actively wants to spend time with you and is always down to hang out. You particularly love when active listening, eye contact, and full presence are prioritized hallmarks in the relationship.
“This love language is all about giving your undivided attention to that one special person, without the distraction of television, phone screens, or any other outside interference. They have a strong desire to actively spend time with their significant other, having meaningful conversations or sharing recreational activities,” Mahmud-Syed says.

Your love language is gifts.
This is not to be mistaken as a materialistic or monetary need. Instead, gifts are all about the symbolic thought behind the item. You recognize the gift-giving process: the careful reflection, the deliberate choice of the object to represent the relationship, and the emotional benefits from receiving the present. You want a partner who listens to you and takes initiative.
“People whose love language is receiving gifts enjoy being gifted something that is both physical and meaningful. The key is to give meaningful things that matter to them and reflect their values, not necessarily yours,” says Mahmud-Syed.
Beautiful Church Wedding
Your love language is acts of service.
If your love language is acts of service, you value when your partner goes out of their way to make your life easier. It’s things like bringing you soup when you’re sick, making your coffee for you in the morning, or picking up the groceries when you’ve had a busy day at work.
“This love language is for people who believe that actions speak louder than words. Unlike those who prefer to hear how much they’re cared for, people on this list like to be shown how they’re appreciated. Doing the smaller and bigger chores to make their lives easier or more comfortable is highly cherished by these folx,” shares Mahmud-Syed.
