I’ve been living with my FI since six months after we started dating. That’s about two years now. I had always assumed that I would be staying with him the week of the wedding in our house (which is with his parents at this point in time). A couple months ago he told me that he believes the week of the wedding I should go back to my parents house to stay for the week (my parents are extremely overly-religious) or that I should stay with a girlfriend. Tonight, after his parents arrived from vacation, his mom said to me “I know that Steven has mentioned to you previously about you leaving the week of the wedding, and while this is your house and all (where you live) i think if you did go somewhere (I’m assuming your parents) the week of the wedding it will make your honeymoon that much more special.”
I know they are saying it to be nice, but I always imagined us going to bed together the night before the wedding (maybe even getting a chance to have sex) all excited. Obviously this i no longer happening. So, I’m curious. Are you staying with your FI the week before the wedding? Am I crazy for being a little sad? I agree it will make it more special I’m just not sure how to feel.

I’m staying with my FI the night before the wedding. We’ve been living together for about three and a half years so it would seem weird to me to not sleep beside him. I think I’d be sad if he went somewhere else even for that night when it’s completely possible to sleep beside each other.

FI and I have been living together for 5 years (in our own condo). Under no circumstances would I ever leave my home, especially the week before our wedding. There will be so much stuff to do and I will need his help. Actually, FI and I are more than likely staying together the night before our wedding too (we’ll be staying in our bridal suite at the resort that we’re getting married at).

I stayed with my husband the night before the wedding. I don’t think it makes the wedding any less special. We didn’t go on a honeymoon right away so I can’t comment on that.

I had sex with my DH the night before our wedding. Then again, I had no idea he was going to spring a last minute JoP wedding on me the next day!

I won’t be staying with my FH the night before the wedding, but I will be staying with him every night before then. Maybe we are traditional about not seeing each other before the wedding, but I know that him not seeing me while I’m getting dressed will make the anticipation that much higher, and that much more fun.

@afbacher: FI and I are staying together the night before but he won’t see me getting dressed. We’re going to part ways after breakfast. He’ll go off with his guys and I’ll hang out with my girls. I could be wrong, but I don’t think anyone who stays with their FI’s the night before the wedding actually has them there while they’re getting ready.
