My Fiancee and I are getting married at a Hotel in Los Angeles and we have the Presidental Suite for the night… My Bridal Party wants to decorate it in a Romantic way for us BUT I am hearing from ALOT of my married friends that the excitment and stress of the wedding day makes them so tired that most dont really have a “Wedding Night”.
Can any brides tell me if this is true? Should my Bridal Party go through the trouble of it all?

DH and I definitely weren’t too tired to have a “wedding night”, but neither of us really gave a hoot whether the room was decorated or not, and personally I wouldn’t have wanted anyone messing around in our hotel room before we got there.

I say let them decorate it… hopefully the romantic decorations will help set the mood after a long, exciting day!
I got very little sleep on the days leading up to my wedding, and it was still awesome to have champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and rose petals waiting for us in the room. It’s the first night of your marriage, make it count 😉

i think this varies. i would even guess its 50-50 and how much you both want to have a special “wedding night”. For me, it was part of the wedding day: ceremony, reception, wedding night. then the day was complete!

Our hotel gifted us two bottles of champagne and tons of chocolate covered strawberries and we didn’t touch them. We flipped through our guestbook for a few minutes (it had photobooth pics in it) and passed out.

When are they gonna have the time to go in there and decorate it? Is this gonna be right after the wedding? Personally I wouldnt want anyone to go into our room on the night of the wedding to decorate. we were very tired but still stayed up late talkin about the day lol.. we even went out for a latenight snack.. but we definitely didnt care about the way the room looked

@cameronwedding: I would definitely say everyone’s situation is probably very different. I guess it would have to do with how hard you partied. Was there an after-party after your reception? Did you or FH drink a LOT of alcohol? What time did you get up that morning? LOL … I would definitely say there are a lot of variables. I definitely plan on having a wedding night whether there are rose petals and champagne or pieces of clothing and Natural Light waiting for me, LOL!

Our florist snuck into our hotel room and decorated the room and bed with fresh white rose petals and put candles everywhere. It was very romantic, and we took advantage of it. Then we had a late night snack that the caterer had packed us, showered and went to bed.
I did not sleep the night before the wedding, so I was tired, but not too tired to not have a “wedding night.” We did not get drunk at the reception.

I think having them decorate will be a good idea. perhaps if you are not in the mood that night then you will be once you get to your room. I told my FI that it is his job to make sure the rooms is romantic upon arrival, well see how he executes itl. I didn’t think to have someone else go and decorate it…

Everyone is going to be different…
Us…I had been up since 6AM, and we left the reception at 9:30PM, at which point I had a migrane and the limo gave me motion sickness – super awesome. An hour drive home, shower to wash all the hairspray out, and another hour to the hotel we stayed at before having to wake up the next morning at 7AM…yeah – we were both exhausted! But our “wedding night” was celebrated the first night of our honeymoon – much more relaxed 🙂

My friends escaped the reception at some point and spread rose petals on the bed and put out flowers and candles – but we barely noticed. My husband literally picked me up and carried me off the dancefloor when he decided it was time for the reception to end and the wedding night to begin – haha. But yeah, I think it will be nice to have your friends decorate – it makes them feel good and it’s a nice gesture. I don’t get the too tired for a wedding night deal – sure, there are plenty of nights when we’re too tired, but our wedding night wasn’t one of them.

Aww, that’s sweet of them! I say let them do it. If it turns out you and your new husband are too tired to enjoy what they did, you have something lovely to wake up to in the morning!

We definitely were no where near too tired for a “wedding night” but we also didn’t give a hoot how the room was decorated. And in all honestly, I don’t know that I would have wanted someone decorating our room before we got there.

Yeah I have heard that too. FI was determined to break the wedding night curse though and we did.. I would have rather just went to sleep though if he weren’t so insistant… sounds bad but I was exhausted.. haha
