    We havent discussed it yet, but knowing FI, he’ll probably sleep at his moms house. He’s super traditional and I had to practically beg him to even agree to doing first looks. He doesnt even want to see my veil or accessories that I have in the house!

    @xkrsa:  Yep, I like the idea of being a little nervous and giddy to see him the next day, and not beig mad that he hogged the covers lol

    I was fine with staying together the night before the wedding. DH was not at all – there were quite a few things he was VERY traditional about (we didn’t do a first look either). So we stayed separately. My mom stayed with me in the hotel 🙂

    Not sure yet.  However the reason I wouldn’t stay with him the night before isn’t because of “tradtion”, it would be to avoid his snoring for the night and make sure I got a good night’s sleep!

    @xkrsa:  I’m not sure about other people, but we’re sleeping separately the night before the wedding, we are doing a first look though. We’re sleeping separately mostly because I think not seeing him all day long will make our first look that much more exciting and intimate. Just my feeling though.

    My sister and her husband stayed in the same hotel room the night before their wedding and they also did a first look, too.

    I don’t think you can go wrong either way, tradition or not!

    We were in a hotel after the rehearsal dinner. I stayed in our suite with my sister, and DH stayed with his best man.

    By ceremony time, I was so anxious to see him! I felt like I missed him all day. TBH, it felt weird to go through all the motions of such an eventful day without him, but I think it made it that much more special.

    The two of us shared a double bed with two dogs.  Yeah, it was kind of cramped.  LOL

    If you are doing a first look, then I think it makes a big difference that you sleep separately the night before (it is basically the same idea behind not seeing each other until you walk down the ceremony)!  That’s what we did, and it made it all the more exciting and special to not see each other leading up until the first look.

    • Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast

    We stayed together the night before in our b&b room. It was wonderful. We enjoyed an in-room couples massage, indulged in the steam shower and whirlpool tub, and generally relished in our last unmarried night together. Then we had breakfast together the next morning before seperating to do our individual things.

    We aren’t doing a first look so the first time we see each other will be when I walk down the aisle. I’ll be spending the night before at my parents house. It works out well this way because my sister (who is my MOH) will also be staying there, and my dress is being kept there because they have a better place to hang it.

    We stayed together at our hotel. Neither of us sleeps well without the other there, and we aren’t superstitious.

    We stayed at our respective parents’ homes.  Mine wouldn’t have let him sleep with me anyway.  🙂

    I even saw him before the first look – he had to drop something off at our house.

    We’ll be sleeping in a hotel room together…I refuse to spend the most nervous night of my life away from him just because of tradition.
