15 things for you and your partner to do before you say 'I do'...
#1 Serious stuff out of the way first: set up a joint savings account.
Because, y'know, money. Whether you want to save for your wedding, your home, your future in general - you're not going to be do it without dollar!
#2 Take as many opportunities as possible to travel.
Seize the moment and explore! Whether it's visiting a friend on the other side of the country, taking a spontaneous trip on the Eurostar or booking a surprise weekend away - do it, do it, do it!
#3 Spend a whole weekend together without technology.
Yup: no Twitter, no Daily Mail and no Clash Of Clans. Can you do it...?
#4 Write each other a love letter.

#5 Take this quiz.
#6 Throw a Come Dine With Me-style series of dinner parties with your best friends.
Food + friends = a recipe for some fabulous evenings. Also, it's a great way to break the ice between members of your bridal party who haven't met before.
#7 Start a new hobby together: learning a language, joining a sports club...
Because stimulated minds are happy minds.
#8 Tell each other something you've never told anyone else.
It's thrilling to share a secret - especially with the person you trust more than anyone else in the whole world.
#9 Re-enact your first date.
Just for funsies - re-visit the location, re-wear the outfits (if you can remember them!) and relive the awkwardness in glorious Technicolor.
#10 Buy each other a once-in-a-lifetime present.
A crazy-expensive watch, a painting you've always dreamed of owning, a dream one-off holiday... Splash out. (The savings account you set up at #1 will make this feel a lot more bearable.)
#11 Create a signature cocktail that belongs to just you two.
Get really good at making it and you can then serve it to guests at your wedding reception.
#12 Make an Ultimate Movie List.
Each pick five key movies that mean a lot to you and spend a long weekend watching them together. Also works with books and albums.
#13 Have sex somewhere other than the bedroom, for a whole month. (Or at least a week!)
We dare you! Spice things up by trying something new: in the kitchen, on the stairs, in the car...
#14 Get to know each other's families.
We're not saying call each other's parents 'mum' and 'dad' - cringe - but get to know them properly. Go out for drinks and work past the layer of formality that couple's typically have for each other's folks.
#15 Make a post-wedding day bucket list.
For after the big day. Think of all the adventures that are still yet to come!
