I don’t think it’s bad luck, but we are separating, mostly because the wedding is in my hometown and it is most convenient that way – he is staying at the hotel with the guests and I am staying at my mom’s where I will be getting ready in the morning. I can see it being good both ways – more anticipation for the first look or ceremony if you separate, but on the other hand I think it could be so fun to wake up together and say we’re getting married today!
I also think I’ll get more sleep alone. Together we might stay up talking and being excited!

I don’t think it is bad luck, but I am excited about saying goodnight to him the night before our wedding, knowing that the next time we see each other it will be at opposite ends of the aisle! I love the idea of anticipating and preparing ourselves separately and then coming together.

I discussed this with Fiance and he said he doesn’t want to be apart that night, we’ve slept together every night for 3 years except 1 night, and he said he doesn’t want to spend his last night as a "single" man alone!!
I plan on getting up early and leaving to be with my girls til we have the first look though

as hubby & i eloped i never thought to seperate before the wedding. my then Fiance woke me up a little after midnight on the 23rd to tell me that "today is the day we get married"… insert "ohhhh" moment here as hes not very romantic at the best of times so i thought this was cute.

I guess I meant to say I believe in the tradition of not seeing each other the day of the wedding – not that it’s bad luck to stay the night together.

Is it bad luck? No. Will we do it? I have no idea. If we are still living in our parents’ houses like we are now, then no; BUT what we might do, if we’re going to have our wedding in a campground, is camp out there for a couple days before and after as the honeymoon. =)

We will be spending the night together but I’ll get up early in the morning and go to my mom’s hotel room to get ready.

We’re definitely staying at home in our own bed the night before. I just KNOW I won’t sleep otherwise. We’ll be getting ready separately though.

For some reason, I just think that that is one of the traditional things that I want to keep in tact for my wedding!

We’ll be staying in the same hotel room together. We live about an hour from our venue, but we have friends and family who live in the area. Unfortunately, I don’t picture either one of us staying on someone’s couch the night before the wedding and I’m not shelling out another $100 so we can be in separate rooms. I may be spoiled and cheap, but at least I’ll sleep well.

We slept together the night of. We had kind of planned to sleep separately, but then I was getting nervous that I wouldn’t be able to sleep well if we did that (I have a hard time falling asleep without him. I just lay awake thinking about stuff, not even necessarily stuff about us or anything. for whatever reason, with him next to me though, my mind is at ease). I was soooo exhausted that night though with the rehearsal and finishing up last minute stuff that I probably would have conked out even without him, but we weren’t really having that reveal moment when I walk down the aisle (doing pictures before), so it didn’t matter. I made sure he was gone before I came back with my hair and makeup done though 🙂

We’ll most likely stay together but part ways in the morning when we get ready separately.

We didn’t, and my parents were shocked! I stayed in our house (with my family and a bridesmaid and her mom) and he stayed at his mom’s house…my parents both said, "where is HE going to stay?!" like it was strange for us to separate! ha!
I was so tired and busy I probably would have been snappy with him anyways though so I was glad for the peace and quiet.

I don’t think it is bad luck but I like the idea of it. We plan on parting ways the night before.
