by | 9 February, 2018

For all you brides-to-be who are tying the knot this year, today will be your last Valentine’s Day as an engaged couple… and we think you should make the most of it!

Before you scream at your screen ‘We’re saving for the wedding, dagnammit!’ listen up, because we’ve come up with five budget-friendly ideas to celebrate your very last Valentine’s Day as a Miss…

  1. Indoor Picnic

Going out to dinner on Valentine’s night can be an expensive experience, especially when naughty restaurants hike up their prices for the evening. So why not buy in your favourite picnic food, get yourself a pretty blanket, and dine on your living room floor?

  1. Dinner in, dessert out

Rather than spend astronomical amounts on a three-course meal, why not cook up your favourite main course at home, eat it by candlelight, and then head out to splurge on the sweet stuff?

  1. Go people watching

People watching on Valentine’s night takes the sport to a whole new level! So why not head into town, grab some street food, and giggle at the montage of loved up couples?!

  1. Splash out on Champagne… and nothing else!

There’s nothing more romantic than popping a bottle of Champagne with the one you love, but when it’s coupled with an expensive dinner and gifts, the purse strings can get a bit pinched! So why not splash out on a quality bottle of champers, but accompany it with a home cooked meal that doesn’t break the bank.

And last but by no means least…

  1. Go Gadget-Free

Yes, you heard us right – switch off your phones, hide the iPad, bury the laptop and give the TV a night off. Instead, get in some board games, a pack of cards and a gorgeous bottle of red, and let yourself enjoy a spot of old school entertainment.

So there you have it – five frivolous ways to celebrate your last Valentine’s night as an engaged couple, without eating into your wedding fund. Let the romance begin!
