He’s your boyfriend so you know everything about him, right? Perhaps not! Make sure you know these things before you commit...

1. His full name.
You mean you didn’t know he had four middles names?! Good luck at the altar!

2. His opinion on pink champagne.
Otherwise you will be discussing the differences of toasting with that or regular fizz long into the night...

3. His thoughts on children.
And we’re not just referring to his plans for future offspring, but also whether he’d be happy to have a kid-friendly wedding or if it will be an adults-only affair.

4. His method to cope with stress.
It’s best to brace yourself for the marathon of silent treatment that you may be exposed to should your wedding ideas not go to plan.

5. His thoughts on Ikea.
If he’s down for online shopping only, then you’ve got a keeper – there’s been many a relationship breakdown thanks to that one-way system!

6. His Netflix habits.
Can you really tolerate hours upon hours of House of Cards when all you want to do is catch up on Gilmore Girls?!

7. His favourite meal.
So you can whip it up in an instant when you have bad news to break – like the fact that, thanks to your designer heels, his stag do fund is more Brighton than Bermuda…

8. His worst habit.
Yes, we do mean biting those finger nails (gross). At least when you say for better or worse, you’ll know exactly what the worst bit is!
