We had around 2o plus people fly in for our wedding so we did a big dinner with everyone – which was nice for everyone to meet prior to the wedding.

We live together so we spent the night together (I sleep much better with him than by myself) had breakfast with a few friends and then I left with my sister and bridesmaids to get ready at a resort close to our wedding venue. We spent the night there after the wedding so it worked well as a getting ready venue as well as first night as husband and wife.

I think a room with your bridesmaids is a nice idea πŸ™‚ Just make sure to get lots of sleep! πŸ™‚

Whichever bridesmaids can come will be there—-can’t force anyone to do it, but I do see valid points on both sides of the argument.  Even if it is just you and one BM, you’ll still have fun! 

I think I am going to spend the night before the wedding at my apt with my FI….it will be a nice time to get excited about the wedding together, and we both sleep much better when we’re in the same bed.  Don’t need circles under my eyes on the wedding day!!

We’re getting seperate hotel rooms and having “sleepovers” with our bridal parties. But good point by PP, make sure you get plenty of sleep! I have the night before ending at 9 and everyone is being ordered to their rooms. πŸ™‚

I’m spending the night at the hotel we’re getting married in.  MOH and at least one BM will be with me.

FI will stay at at hotel with is groomsmen and my bridesmaids and I are staying at our house since we’ll be getting ready there the day of. I’m sure some of my bridesmaids will actually end up staying at a hotel because most of them are married already but I don’t mind! Just need them there the next morning πŸ™‚

Sleepover in the bridal suite with my sisters! That’s what we did for my sister’s wedding – it was like a mini bachelorette party, only with just us sisters!  The rest of my bridal party is welcome to join but not sure if they will or not.

I will try to get some sleep! We are being a bit traditional as well – the day before the wedding I plan on seeing him, nor sleeping next to him the night before.

Our venue was a four story mansion complete with a billiard room, pool/spa, bowling alley and mini movie theater and the top two floors were individual suites. We rented our venue out for the night before our wedding so that after the rehearsal dinner everyone relaxed together (30 closest family and friends) and enjoyed themselves. We then had a pizza party at 11 pm which was tons of fun! We watched Wedding Crashers in the movie theater, very appropriate and the venue provided candy, popcorn and sodas. Honestly the pre-wedding party was just as amazing as the wedding.

We are going to hang out in Downtown Disney, eat at Pollo Campero, and then go home and sleep together.

I want to get a hotel and stay overnight with my bridesmaids and moh.  I want to have a few drinks and have a good time.  I plan on keeping the hotel for the wedding night too.

Hopefully fall asleep on the phone talking to FI, as usual.  The house will be filled with my OOT family so I dont know how much rest I will really get…
