not to long ago me and my fiance were flipping through the channels and i came across an episode of Bridezillas! even though bridezillas give all brides to be horrible reputation, its one of those guilty pleasures of watching bratty brides throw temper tantrums all day. ANY WAY, in this episode the bride and groom decide to sleep together at a hotel the night before their wedding and i turned to my Fiance and was like, “oh no, thats bad luck! their doomed.” with that being said me and my fiance have planned a destination wedding on a cruise. our first night on the cruise is the night before our wedding so my fiance has it in his mind that he will be spending the night in his moms room with his mom before the wedding…. talk about foot in the mouth! i didnt think that he would take what i said sooo literal. i was just being a bridezilla hater. I figured we are having a very untraditonal wedding so the traditonal rules don’t apply right? (except that he cant see my dress! i want that to be a suprise.) i tried talking him out of it and he’ sticking with it like its his virtue… geeze. if he goes through with this i wont see him till our first sight meeting (the first time we see each other alone) and i guess the suspense kills me cause what if he gets cold feet and ends up taking one of the emergency boats back home hahaha im just kidding.. so all in all brides to be are you sticking with the tradition or breaking all the rules?

we’re not having a traditional or religious wedding and we’ve already lived together for years. It will definitely be weird to not sleep in the same bed the night before and it’ll probably mean we’re more nervous, BUT… i want the first time he sees me that day to be when i’m walking down the aisle. i’ll be staying in my mom’s hotel room and he’ll be staying at home or at his mom’s hotel room. i just think it’ll be so much more special. 🙂 that’s just me though!

I will not, but it isn’t because I think it is bad luck. I will be spending the night at our venue; it is a also a B&B. I just want to get a good nights rest and spend some time with my ladies the night before, and he wants to spend a nice evening with his guys, so that is what we have decided to do.

Nope! We are sleeping in our bed in our home together the night before the wedding!

That was the plan, but at the last minute, my groom decided that he didn’t want to spend a night without me. In the end, I’m glad it went that way.

We have decided that since we have so many OOT guests that we will stay in the hotel with or wedding party. Him with his boys and me with my gals

I didn’t vote because we didn’t stay together the night before – but not because we felt like it was bad luck, but that was kind of how it turned out – I really just wanted the night before with my girls in my old bedroom at my mom’s house one last time! As it turned out, we were really only apart for about 10 hours!

we decided to sleep at different places, him at home (to take care of the dog) and me at the hotel/venue with my family/bridesmaids.
i regret that decision. i would have been way less stressed if my hubby was there with me the night before, and since we lived together for a while i don’t think it would have been a good idea.

We’re not staying together but that’s just how it turned out. I don’t believe in superstition.

i dont believe in superstition but i do believe in anticipation and there is more of a buildup when you spend the night apart and then dont see each other until the ceremony

We’re definitely spending the night before the wedding together. We’ve been sleeping in the same bed for five years; I don’t see why that night should be any different.

We aren’t, I am staying with my sister in a hotel and FH is staying in a separate room. I think there is something sweet about not seeing your SO until you are both dressed as bride and groom.

We haven’t discussed it yet, but I would like to spend the night with FI before our wedding. We will have lived together for 2.5 years and whenever he’s out of town without me, I always have a harder time falling asleep! I want to be sure to get enough sleep the night before the big day!

I hope that he’ll stay in the same room with me. He’s a little more traditional than I am. It would really mean alot to me to spend the night before the wedding together, snuggling and reminiscing about how we got to this day.

I stayed with DH the night before. I sometimes don’t fall asleep so great when he’s not with me, and the night before the wedding wasn’t the night I wanted to have a hard time sleeping! Turned out that my worries were unncessary anyway because I didn’t get to bed until like 2am, after trying to finish up some last minute things. I was so busy that day that I just conked out lol So much for not being able to sleep because of the anticipation :p We went our separate ways around 10am the next morning when I had to leave to get my hair done.
