    Do whatever feels most comfortable for you and what’s most convenient for you. Who cares about tradition?  If a good night’s sleep is important to you (and if there’s a night when you’d want to sleep well and wake up refreshed, it’s the night before your wedding) then sleep in your own bed next to your Mr.

    The first time around, we did not.  He stayed home and I stayed at my parent’s house.  This time, because we will have to see each other before the ceremony (he’ll have to help us set up everything) I don’t see the point of NOT sleeping in my own bed.  If I wasn’t going to see him until the wedding, I would have stayed somewhere else again.

    My Darling Husband went to his friend’s house.  I stayed at our house cuddled up with my pups.

    It was very important to my Darling Husband for us to not be together the night before.  I was ok with it either way. Just do what works best for you!

    • Wedding: July 2012 - Walnut Beach Resort

    Not married yet, but we live together. Our wedding is out of town so we will be staying at a resort. The night before he will be staying with his groomsman and I will be in the bridal suite wiht my MOH! Whenever I used to think about my wedding I always imagined staying in a hotel the night before and the night of, regardless if the wedding was in the town I lived in or not! 🙂

    I am planning on staying in a hotel suite with my bridesmaids, so I won’t be sleeping with Fiance at home.  I love the idea of not seeing or talking to him until picture time (we are doing a first look) the day of the wedding because it will help build anticipation.

    Truthfully, I don’t think I’ll get the best sleep no matter where I am!

    ETA: Sorry, I just saw that you were asking for opinions from married bees!

    We did not because we got married in my hometown, not where we currently live.  I stayed at my mom’s….he stayed at the hotel.

    We stayed separate and honestly I did not sleep very well at all.  But I doubt I would have regardless.

    We are getting married in his parent’s backyard so I suggesed to Fiance that I stay at his parent’s the night before and he can stay at our apartment.  He found that to be a bit weird, but it doesn’t bother me.  I need to get up early and get girly things done around that area anyways!

    Not married yet but I’m staying somewhere else. I think it will be more fun that way.

    We slept apart. I slept with two of my bridesmaids! I was so glad we didn’t see eachother at all before the wedding. It just added to the excitement.

    It was such a late night due to the the rehersal dinner turning into a family reunion/party. He ended up using our free hotel room and i went back home and tried to sleep. My cousin came back home with me and we passed out! I had to be up super early that morning to get my hair done so i passed out.

    Do what ever you feel comfortable with. It was amazig seeing him for the first time walking down the aisle though!
