    @MissPurplePurl:  We’re going to have breakfast and stuff together in our hotel (since we’re traveling) then once it’s time to get ready, one of us will go to the hotel his immediate family is stayng at nearby. We haven’t decided which location will be for girls getting ready and which will be for dudes,  but we’ll figure that out later. Then we meet up for our first look! 🙂

    @aggie2010:  My fiancee and I live together and will be spending the night together.  We are getting married in Vegas and have one room booked for the nights we are staying there for the both of us.  I don’t follow much with the traditions.  Plus, I probably wouldn’t sleep very well if he wasn’t by my side 🙂

    We live together (and have for 5 years now) and are spending the night apart. Not for luck reasons though! I am spending the night in a hotel room with my bridesmaids, and think it will be so much fun to have a sleepover with my girls before my wedding day.

    @MissPurplePurl:  the hair/makeup ladies came to our house for me and my bridesmaids to get ready, so me and Darling Husband woke up together, he had a shower and then left to his parents (his old house) to get ready with the groomsmen there.

    ETA: when he left i was still in my robe and one of my bridesmaids was getting made up, i was the 2nd for hair once he left.

    @MissPurplePurl:  We got ready at his parents’ house in separate rooms but not seeing each other was not a big deal to us.

    We live together but will be staying in a hotel the night before the wedding. I know my mom is going to try to get me not to stay with him but I absolutely cannot be without him when I sleep. I know I won’t get any sleep if I don’t have him beside me. Plus, our wedding isn’t until 6PM so we will have plenty of time to build excitement and anticipation throughout the day.

    @MissPurplePurl:  We plan on spending the night/waking up together – but he’s going to bugger off in the morning & spend the day with his groomsmen etc, while us ladies get ready. We’ll probs not see each other from 8/9am til the 3pm ceremony.

    I can deal with that, I’ll pretend it’s like a day at work (athough we email/text/call each other or somehow communicate thru the day) But I couldn’t do separate beds, I know I wouldn’t sleep & it would stress me out.

    I have no choice but to be apart from him. In my culture there are rituals that require us to be at our own parent’s homes the night of the wedding. I probably wont see him for 3 days before the wedding.

    My Maid/Matron of Honor has been my best friend since we were 11. I’m staying in a hotel with her the night before more as a bonding time with her than to be away from my fiance. We’re going to get up and drink mimosas and get ready. My other bridesmaids are married so they won’t be showing up until a bit later on the day of. I wouldn’t want to stay alone. Staying with her will be super fun, like my last single girl slumber party. 🙂

    We live together as well but logistically speaking it made more sense for us to sleep apart. I’ll be staying at my parents’ house along with all of my bridesmaids… so it’ll be like a slumber party!

    I think we both will be too nervous to spend the night before the wedding! I don’t think would get any sleep and vice versa. There will be no first look either.

    Fiance just booked my bridal suite!  I’m so excited!  I’m staying there and he’s staying at our apartment.  Mostly it’s so I don’t have to worry about him “seeing” anything and ruining the surprise (we’re not doing first look, I don’t think), but honestly, it’s also for me to enjoy my last few hours of officially-singledom being single and doing my single-y things!  Plus this way the girls can come over as early as we need and he and I aren’t in each other’s way for what we want/need to do (like if he wants to sleep in).  I think for him, too, the hotel will be closer to the church, and he’s worried about me being delayed.

    I was married a few months ago, and we spent the night together in the hotel room that I had rented for the day/night of the wedding. In order to have it for the entire day to get ready, I had to book it for the night before the wedding as well, so I had originally planned to have a fun night with my BMs. Well, to put it plainly, they sucked, so I cancelled that and spent it with my then-FI instead. Actually, waking up that morning with him is one of my favorite memories of the day, to be honest. He was so excited the night before/morning of, and he brought me breakfast and flowers and a sweet card that he wrote (I didn’t ask for any of this, he was just super excited). I didn’t want him to leave! However, our wedding was in the evening, so, since he left in the morning before the BMs arrived, it wasn’t like we saw each other for the whole day. As a PP mentioned, it was exciting seeing eachother later, all dressed up!

    Honestly, I am really looking forward to waking up on my wedding day with fi. 🙂 Hopefully we can both get excited together that our day has arrived. 🙂
