    I don’t think it’s bad luck but we aren’t going to spend the night before the wedding together. I’m going to stay at a friends and he’s going to stay at home. I think it will make the whole "first look" even more special!

    In the past I believed in this but as I have grown up I am not as superstitious.

    Because my parents house will be filled with some of our guests I really won’t have a room designated to me and I am definitely not sleeping on an air mattress since they kill my back. Because of this I have been thinking about crashing with my Fiance the night before.

    EDIT: If I choose to stay with my Fiance the night before, he won’t see me again until I am all dressed. So he will still get the "first look".

    I agree – we aren’t going to be staying together but it’s not because of the superstition. It’s the "first look" factor. I just think spending that time apart will make it that much more exciting when I get to see him for the first time at the wedding. I get butterflies just thinking about it πŸ™‚

    I agree with tessabella.  I also do not think it is bad luck.  I just wanted to make that day so special.  I loved the look on his face when he saw me for the very first time that day.  I think it also makes the wedding night more special.

    We kind of compromised on this. We stayed one floor apart in the same hotel (literally, our rooms were one on top of the other!). By around 11 p.m. the day before the wedding, I was completely and utterly exhausted. Before going to bed, I called my Fiance and just got him to come hold me for a little while, just so we could quietly "be" together. After no alone time for over a week, it was nice just to have that space to breathe and be calm. Then he left and I went to sleep, and it was probably good I was alone because I was just so worn out. And we had a very special "first look" the next day. That being said, I think the "look" would have been special regardless, since we were both so gussied up. πŸ™‚

    I am also a little <font face=”Georgia” size=”2″>Superstitious </font>about staying together the night before- just an old tradition that has worn off on me πŸ™‚ I also agree I think it will make the first look at the wedding much more exciting πŸ™‚

    We’re not going to stay together, but I don’t think it’s bad luck, especially since we’ve lived together for a couple years now (cat’s out of the bag – shh) πŸ™‚

    We’ve lived together for a long time now and neither of us are very superstitious or overly-traditional people.

    We’re still going to get ready separetely on the day of though.

    I don’t think it is bad luck, but we are sleeping separately.  We have lived together for 2 years and Fiance was SHOCKED that I did not want to stay with him the night before.  He thought it was my mom’s influence.  In some ways I think it would be fun to stay togheter, but in other ways, I am a bit traditional and wanted him to be "surprised" when he sees me for the first time that day, walking down the aisle.

    I’m pretty untraditional and not at all superstitious, so my fiance and I are spending the night together. We splurged at a really nice porch suite at our hotel for Friday and Saturday night! We’ve been living together for four years, so it seemed silly for us to spend the night apart, anyway. We’re also ordering room service breakfast for the morning of our wedding and eating together on our porch. We know that day will be crazy, and we wanted one hour in the morning to ourselves to regroup, and reflect on how special that day will be. The wedding is about both of us getting married. It seemd weird to spend so much time apart!

    We live together but we’re going to be seperate the night before, I agree with everyone else it’s not so much about the bad luck it’s more about that first look when I come walking down the aisle.

    I don’t think it’s bad luck, although I don’t really believe in luck or superstitious things.  We did spend the night separate, although it was more for logistical reasons.  We were getting up much earlier in the morning to do hair/makeup, so it was easier for me to stay with my sister (MOH) and Bridesmaid or Best Man the night before.

    We’ll be apart the night before.  But I’m not terribly superstitious.

    I don’t think it’s bad luck. It can be fun to be separate, but we wanted to be together. We even got ready together before the wedding. For us, that was really special.
