And groomsmen that live locally. I’m not making an issue of it with him, I was just surprised since most of these guys have their own homes and significant others. I shouldn’t have brought it up at all but when I overheard him telling a few of the guys that the plan was to crash at our house and get ready here the next day I ended up saying asking “why?” We don’t even have any guest beds in our house yet. I guess I just feel like hanging out time is over after all of our late night pre wedding parties.
I will be off to the hotel the night before to relax and unpack. It’s different with guys though, I realize. I guess I’m just asking for someone to tell me ya it’s normal, who cares.

If we didn’t spend the night before together I would have wanted to spend it with friends. So no, I don’t think it’s strange!

I think it’s fine and normal, if that what he wants to do before the wedding it’s fine. I also crashed at someone’s house or hotel the night before the wedding. It’s also great because at least you know everyone will be on time.
The plan is for Fi and his groomman to crash at my condo. I will be at a hotel for that whole weekend so I really don’t care.

Sounds right to me, at like 10:00 am, your house will look like your groomsmen were trying to shield the carpet from the sun with their supine bodies….QVC will be playing on the TV, someone’s cell phone vibrating away in the couch and stale plate of pizza rolls on the coffee table with empty glasses of Shasta and beer.

My hubby-to-be and his three groomsmen are taking over the house the night before the wedding. I had planned on spending the night away anyway, and with our big cross-country move coming up in two weeks, it’s nice for them to have an extra night together being smelly boys.

So many brides post angry threads here about one or more of their ‘maids not wanting to stay with them the night before, so we know it’s totally normal for the ladies to want a sleepover. Guys should have that same sleepover if that’s what they want.

@Nona99: I love your descriptive writing Nona99
It’s totally normal and it will probably happen at my house. We don’t have guest beds, but our friends are pilots and they’re used to sleeping in chairs and bunk beds at crash pads so I’m sure they’ll be fine.

Even though we live together I will be spending the night at my parents the night before, that way I can say I left their house before going to the wedding. Our Best Man and his wife will be staying in our guest room for the weekend. FI and I will have a hotel room night of the wedding.

I have heard of stuff like this happening with several people that I know. One of my friends got married this past summer, her husband was living in a house that belonged to his grandmother. He and the groomsmen spent the night before the wedding in that house.

I think its normal, I spent the night before our wedding at my parents house with 2 of my bridesmaids. My DH spent the night with those two BM’s hubbies and the rest of the GM’s came over in the AM to “get ready” (aka drink beer and eat bagels?) and the rest of my BM’s met me at the hair salon then we did lunch at my parents house before the limo arrived.
