    Nothing wrong with seeing him before you walk down the isle. We are having our pictures done with each other BEFORE the ceremony. It will be nice to have a private moment before the day gets crazy!!

    After the Rehearsal Dinner my Fiance is going to stay the night at his best mans house with most of the gm. and then I am going to my uncles house to stay the night there with most of my bms. So we won’t see each other until I walk down the aisle! I’m excited to do it with out seeing each other until the aisle because we live together, so I think it makes it a little more special

    I didn’t vote because none of the options really applied for us.  We didn’t see each other that morning but we did first look pictures so I saw him before walking down the aisle.  Best decision ever!!  I was really unsure about it at first but it was so nice to have a little moment to ourselves and to get a ton of the pictures done so that we could go and enjoy the reception with all of our guests!

    Yeah, none of the options really applied here either. I believe, the night before I am having a sleepover with my girlfriends and he is going to spend it with his dad and brother. Then the day of, we will be apart to get ready and then we are doing a first look and all the photos beforehand.

    my arrangement doesn’t fit any of the options.

    Fiance and are are spending the night apart and meeting for pro pics an hour before the ceremony. =)

    My husband and I stayed together in a hotel room after the rehearsal dinner.  We lived together before the wedding and staying apart just didn’t feel right for us.  I loved that we had a chance to unwind and I think my stress level was less because we were around each other (like normal).  I loved having breakfast together (just him and I) and having a chance to talk about how excited we were, etc.  

    After I got dressed in my wedding dress, we didn’t see each other for a little bit and we did a first look.  I was so nervous about that, but it worked out great!  I was not at all nervous going into the ceremony.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good luck finding the right solution for you!

    We won’t see each other overnight or in the morning, but we will see each other prior to the ceremony for first look photos and the rest of the photos.

    My Fiance and I will NOT see eachother before the wedding.  I did consider allowing it, so we could get the pictures done ahead of time… but my favorite part of every wedding has always been the grooms face when the doors open.  I didn’t want to miss that.  Of course, there are DEFINITELY some positives to seeing eachother before the wedding. I think it all depend on what is important to you!

    Good luck in making your decision!

    I can’t imagine not having spent the day with my hubby. We had a family breakfast that morning, then went our separate ways to get ready, then had a first look and other pics. I got really stressed out right before the ceremony (family was being crazy, everyone asking me questions about details, etc.) and having a few minutes with my hubby totally calmed my nerves and allowed me to enjoy our ceremony and reception. I highly recommend it!

    i agree with stacia… walking down the aisle is so much more special [imo] when the groom is eager to see how you look and hasnt seen you in the dress b4.. i love the anticipation buildup.. and i love my Fiance seeing me in an outfit for the first time.  so i will not be seeing him till the walk down the aisle
