MONEY PEOPLE: Money Matters; Valentine's Day Special.

Byline: SIMON READ

ONE in five single Britons will get engaged this year

and spend a massive pounds 12billion tying the knot, claims Alliance & Leicester.

It says couples getting engaged on Valentine's Day will spend pounds 15,000 each on their romance, including the cost of engagement party, wedding and honeymoon.

WOULD-be Romeos should also insure that precious ring. Lloyds TSB says that home insurance can be increased for a month to cover the cost of a missing wedding band.

IF you're planning to whisk your lover away for Valentine's Day, have proper travel insurance. Short break cover costs from pounds 26 per couple with Bradford & Bingley.

SHARE a romantic candlelit supper with your Valentine and you'll help save the environment, says the Energy Saving Trust. If we all turned off just one light on Valentine's night we would save pounds 444,000 worth of energy.

Finally, don't forget your pets on Valentine's Day, says insurer Cardiff Pinnacle. Owners can take out insurance for as little as pounds 5 a month.
