The one ring

Mixed metal bands look set to stay a firm favourite. Particularly popular in a brushed or satin finish, combine platinum, yellow, white or rose gold. And, for a bit of bling, add a diamond too.

One in a million

With top notes of acidulous blood mandarin and crisp peppermint, underlined by base notes of sensual leather, Paco Rabanne’s 1 Million is a scent that will bring back wedding day memories for years to come.

Stagtastic

Ditch the boozy night in favour of a day of gentlemanly pursuits. At High Lodge in Dinton, Suffolk, choose from golf, clay shooting and archery, or a combination of all three. Prices start from £25 per head, based on a minimum of 10 people.

Competitive mates will love the idea of a race at a karting centre. Anglia Karting, near Swaffham, also offers clay shooting.
