No we aren’t we both live at home with our parents. So the first time we will spend the night together is after the wedding

We’ll be sharing a hotel room the night before and I’m very excited about that. We’ll also be getting ready together in the morning — we have no bridal party, so it will be just us, my MUA, and the photographer.

We both live at home with our parents so that will be our last night apart before getting married and moving in together!

edobbs87 :  We are not. We have been living together for two years.   We just really want the whole experience of the traditional wedding symbolism (Two becoming one).  You are not really getting the true experience by staying with eachother the night before.

It is one night.  It really will be fine. And I think the night of will make it that much more special.  We are also making a no sex rule two weeks before the wedding!

We did, and it was great. It was quite a stressful week, especially with having so much family in town, so we wanted a chance to relax and calm down the night before. It was wonderful waking up next to him, and then we went our own separate ways for the whole morning until the ceremony. Turned out to be a great idea, because the morning was pretty stressful with bridesmaid/ family/vendor drama, so I was really happy that we had made that choice!

We do live together but No. we won’t stay together the night before. We have 5 kids between us. Me, 2 and him, 3. (4 girls and 1 boy ages 20-6)  Most likely the girls and I will stay somewhere and him and his son will stay somewhere since they are our wedding party and I don’t want him seeing me or the girls until we are walking down the aisle.

I stayed at my parents and watched Fixer Upper with my dad. It was really nice. I got a great sleep too. He stayed at our house on his own and went to his parents to get ready the next day.

No! We have an apartment together right now (we’ve lived together almost a year) but the night before the wedding i’m staying at the hotel with my sister (MOH) that we are using as my bridal suite the next morning! My Fiance will have the apartment to himself!

We live together so we chose to. It made more sense than one of us getting a hotel room or sleeping on someones couch.

Nope! We like the tradition of not staying together and not seeing each other until I walk down the aisle. We have lived together for years but we still think it will be kind of neat :).

I’m staying with my Maid/Matron of Honor the night before in the hotel room where we will get ready in in the morning. Makeup starts at 9:00 so I won’t have to be up TOO early to drive to the hotel if I’m already there! Then Fiance and I can use that same suite for our Bridal Suite that night.
