7. Ask Your Best Man/Woman To Record A Speech

Have a little fun with this one; don’t get them to read their actual speeches to you, but set them the task of cheering you up and making you laugh, you could even send them questions or a quiz to help them prepare, or to see how much they actually do know about you.


8. Get Dressed Up

Don’t sit in your pj’s all day (unless you reeeeally want to) – get dressed up and sit down to eat, have a date night, or date day, and make the most of the two of you!

Toast each other, tell each other all the things you love about one another, toast your friends and family, even though they’re not with you, say how you feel or do an alternative toast, and say all the inappropriate things that you would want to say on the day, but there not for everyone’s ears.
