    I’m in the same boat.  I want to stay at my house the night before.  This is where I am comfortable and will sleep best.  

    Plus, neither of us are ones for tradition or superstition.  I think it would be AWESOME to wake up, kiss my fiance, and know that it would be the last time we would be waking up as two single people 🙂

    We are not. I am not superstitious at all and since we will be at our semi destination location, I don’t really want to pay for 2 hotel rooms, plus we have lived together for 5 years, I just fail to see what the big deal is, it’s not like he will see me with makeup or hair done, so thatsurprise will still be there. IF I was you, I would do what I felt most comfortable with.

    We’ve lived together for 3 years and are separating because of tradition. However we are in a slightly different circumstance as we’ll be staying in our hotel the night before. I’ll have a sleepover with my girls and he’ll do the same with his guys. I seriously love knowing that everything will be a surprise and the idea of the anticipation leading up to it. However, I don’t see anything at ALL wrong with staying together in your apartment together the night before. Who cares if you buck tradition? We are doing it elsewhere…this was just an area where we wanted to stick to it.

    My Fiance and I live together, but we are not staying together the night before the wedding.  He has said on MANY occassions that the first time he sees me that day, he wants in to be me walking down the aisle to become his wife!  AWWWW!!!  ;-)))

    We did, but not out of tradition or superstition or anything. Darling Husband wanted to spend his last night as a single dude playing a super geeky card game with some of his high school friends, and I wanted to spend some quality girl time with my SIL and BFFs. He stayed up till 3AM playing his RPG, and I had some last minute work done on my dress, drank champagne and played Scrabble with my girls until they sent me to bed around midnight.

    I missed him when it was time to go to sleep, but he texted me several times before I fell asleep (all of which I still have saved on my phone).

    Do what is best for you. We lived together for awhile as well…we spent the night together. It was only natural for us.

    We’re not separating. We just don’t have the thing where we need it to make moments special or anything. And no one on this earth calms me down more than he does, so I want to be where he is that night. And the next morning. And, well, all the time, always.

    we didn’t. we were sharing a hotel room together after all, but i am sure if i really wanted to be apart, i could have arranged something with my friends.  But i actually really liked waking up together on the morning of our wedding. we had some nice cuddle time before all the prepping and general business of the day began.

    Nope, we stayed together.  And he saw me in the morning half done up, the horror!

    We lived together for more than 6 years before getting married and hadn’t spent a night apart since the first year or two. Sleeping apart the night before our wedding wasn’t even an option. It just doesn’t make sense for those in our situation. We sleep much better when we’re together and wedding eve is pretty much the most important nights sleep of your life. Honestly, waking up with my soon to be husband on our wedding morning was one of my favorite memories from the whole day. 

    ETA: We stayed in our bridal suite at the venue.

    We seperated the night before. I stayed at our apartment with my friend who came from out of state and he stayed at his grandma’s house. He did stop over at the apartment about an hour or so before the ceremony and I had to make a mad dash up the stairs so he wouldn’t see me. My favorite memory of that day was me sitting on the top steps and him at the bottom talking to each other through a wall.

    We are, only because our apartment is 500 sqft. And a dog. A suite was only 100, and us girls can hang out.

    We were supposed to, but the place I was supposed to stay fell through, and it was probably the best thing that went wrong on wedding weekend.

    Going to bed with him that night, and waking up to him the next morning made me SO much happier and calmer.  I never would have imagined, especially considering we’d been fighting for  pretty much 2 weeks nonstop prior to that night.  His presence that morning was exactly the thing that helped me get through all of the stress of wedding day in one piece.
