Take this opportunity to celebrate your hen do a little early with your best friends: sit back on the beach with your favourite cocktail and top up your tan for your big day.

Not only will you feel great, but you’ll also look fantastic!

And don’t forget that impressing your spouse with your new talents is a great start to your married life.
Although not really a task as such, having this as your final to-do is a subtle and sweet reminder of what your next step in life will be. Once you’ve ticket this off you can start your married bucket list. This time you can write it together.
