I’ve seen a few posts on here and was wondering- is spending the night before your wedding with your fiance uncommon? I always assumed I would… I guess I thought that not sleeping together the night before was an old school thing. Or maybe that to be brides just had their friends over for the night? I have my girlfriends, but we are not sleep over people at all.
Did you/would you/ do you plan to?

We did. But then again, we did a destination wedding.

We’re planning to spend the night together. A lot of my friends haven’t.
I said to my mum that we were going to and she had a moment of being “shocked” before remembering that she and my dad spent the night before their wedding together!

We stayed together at our house the night before, there was never any question that we wouldn’t, even though my mom is now convinced we’ll get divorced solely because of this. :p We’d woken up together every morning for the last year and a half so we thought not waking up together on our wedding day seemed kind of odd.

We did not. Darling Husband is a bit more traditional, so he went home and spent the night with his sister (Best Woman) and I stayed at my great-aunt’s, where I was getting ready and taking family pictures on the big day.

I found it very surprising that it was our friends who were against the idea. Our families didn’t question it. We stayed next door to our venue and the room was over $250 for that night. We live over 45 minutes away and our ceremony was at 11:30 am.
We woke up around 6 am, and he went to the buffet and brought us both breakfast. We ate together and than he went to his parents room. The women all came and got ready in our room and the men in his parents. He kept finding excuses to come up for something and I kept yelled at him to go away.

We did. We had a destination wedding and it was just easier. But I liked waking up next to him on the day of the wedding. In fact, we hung out together until I had my hair and makeup appointments at 3.

We are not. We’re having a destination wedding, and the night before the wedding, I am staying in a room with my sister. I want the first time we see each other on our wedding day day to be when I walk down the aisle to him.

LOL, My Fiance does not want to spend the night before the wedding together! I don’t mind, but he has his mind set on not seing eachother at least a few days before the wedding day. It makes me all giddy thinking about being away from him, especially for the wedding. I
I have also been jokingly saying that we can even make it two weeks in not seing eachother. That idea was not that fun according to Fiance. LoL.

we stayed in seperate hotels. I was with my Bridesmaids and he was with the groomsmen

We will be sharing a room in the villa and my parents and his will be there as well. If tradition held, then it would be good luck, smooth sailing and no divorce for couples who do not see each other before the wedding but that is not always reality. Well, I say if you want to tradition go ahead and do it, but I fail to see the bad luck in seeing the groom the night and morning of. As long as you are happy with your decision, go ahead and enjoy your big day!

I’ll see him at our rehearsal dinner and welcome cocktail reception…then we’ll retreat to our own hotel rooms for that night and I won’t see him until our “first look” about an hour or two before our wedding…even if I saw him beforehand, I’m not superstitious about it.

We will. I ended up booking the night before in our hotel to make sure we had a room in time for makeup appts. My thought is, we’re both paying for it, so we should both enjoy it. 🙂

We will be since we’re not having the traditional wedding anymore.
ETA: We originally booked separate rooms at the inn we were going to get married at. We were both pretty stoked about it. He surprised me with not wanting to spend the night with me and waiting to see the dress.

We slept in separate bedrooms and parted ways at midnight. We both were still trying to finish up last miniute things for the wedding and I was out f hte house hours before he even woke up so there would not have been a romantic waking up together.
