About The Magnificent Moments Weddings Team | Our Love Languages

It is typical for most couples to undergo some type of marriage counseling prior to their marriage; I mean we are talking about lifelong commitment here. Often couples meet with the officiant performing their vows to make sure they are on the same page in terms of family planning, finances, and even religion. But one of the great features of these meetings or courses in recent years is the practice of finding out you and your fiance’s love languages.

The questionnaire developed by Gary Chapman works to figure out how you prefer to be shown affection. Some individuals like spending quality time with their significant others while others prefer being given little gifts to know they are appreciated. Knowing how to communicate with your partner is major, but knowing how they interpret your cues is huge.  But it’s also fun to find out more about yourself, maybe things you never really knew. So here at Magnificent Moments Weddings, we wanted to get in on the action and find out our Love Languages. We took the test and are sharing all the details!

Acts of Service
Can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? Absolutely! Anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on an “Acts of Service” person will speak volumes. The words he or she most want to hear: “Let me do that for you.” Laziness, broken commitments, and making more work for them tell speakers of this language their feelings don’t matter. Finding ways to serve speaks volumes to the recipient of these acts.

Receiving Gifts
Don’t mistake this love language for materialism; the receiver of gifts thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift. If you speak this language, the perfect gift or gesture shows that you are known, you are cared for, and you are prized above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you. A missed birthday, anniversary, or a hasty, thoughtless gift would be disastrous – so would the absence of everyday gestures. Gifts are visual representations of love and are treasured greatly.

My love language is receiving gifts and acts of service.  I have been a receiving gifts love language person for a long time, but the acts of service is new!  Honestly though, I have a lot less time these days than I used to so anyone doing something on my to-do list for me is the best!

Quality Time
In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there – with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby – makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful. Quality Time also means sharing quality conversation and quality activities.

My love language is quality time, which I totally agree with! I love spending time with by husband and son when I am not working. Whether we are enjoying time on the couch watching tv or going out to dinner and a movie just being around my family is enough to make me happy!

My love language is also quality time and I definitely agree! I love to spend time with my boyfriend, even if we just sit around and relax–it’s nice to share the time together. I appreciate time spent together more than a gift given to me, I think you build such a strong relationship when you spend quality time together!
