Benefits

Unplug and find space to connect with your partner

  • Take time away from the logistics of wedding planning, parenting, or daily life stressors to focus on building a strong foundation.
  • Enjoy the beautiful Texas Hill Country setting, sip on a refreshing beverage, enjoy a catered lunch, and receive a couples massage lesson while connecting with your partner through exercises meant to enrich the bond you share with one another.
  • This experience is about you and your partner. There is no need to feel like you need to impress anyone. Everyone is there to learn with and from one another.

Invest in your marriage

  • Refocus and set the intention for the future of your relationship.
  • Develop a deeper understanding and learn things about your partner you may not know yet.
  • Gain tools to prevent current or future issues in the relationship.
  • Premarital work is often overlooked as a worthy wedding planning expenditure. However, those who participate in premarital education report, on average, a 30% stronger marriage. Ultimately, the average wedding will cost $12,000-15,000. Our retreat costs less than 3% of that.

$60 Discount on marriage license and expedited filing

  • Couples who come to Creating Connection Couples Retreat and complete our approved TwoGether in Texas course will receive a certificate for a $60 discount on their marriage license.
  • The certificate is good for one year before marriage.
  • Presenting your certificate to the county clerk will also waive the 72-hour waiting period before getting married.
