24 Things All Women Must Do Before Saying ‘I Do’

Things all women must do before saying ‘I Do’

Marriage is a big, big milestone for all women! And before tying the knot all women must do everything they can to be the very best they can ever be. Check out our list of must-do’s for all women before getting married.

 

1. Travel, travel, travel

Travel with your sister(s), closest buddy or anyone you adore and you will cherish the experiences for a lifetime. Make a list of the places you’d love to visit and just go for it. Even consider traveling solo – you’ll end up being a more liberated, happy and confident woman.  

Travel, travel, travel

 

2. Check your finances

Make sure to clean up your credit and achieve at least some of the financial goals that you’ve set for yourself. Invest in an asset that you’d be proud of after you’re married (like buying a house).

3. Live on your own

Just get out of your comfort zone and live alone (sans mom and dad). Not only is it an amazing experience, it will also teach you innumerable things.

4. Learn to cook  

Not because you’re aspiring to become someone’s ‘ideal wife’ but because it’s reassuring (and important) to know that you can fend for yourself in the kitchen and make yourself a hearty meal, whenever the occasion calls for it.

5. Splurge on yourself
Because you deserve it. Since you work and work even harder to save some dough, it’s important that you spend it the way you like!
