Okay bees, Fiance and I are staying in the same hotel the night before our wedding but not wanting to see each other until I’m walking down the aisle. Ceremony doesn’t start until 4:00. how did you ladies manage to keep fom running into each other during like breakfast and such. Did you keep your phones handy and let each other know where you old be so the other doesn’t accidentally see you? thamks! 20 more dayS!!! Ahh!

Will your bridesmaids and groomsmen be staying there with you guys? You can probably have them run recon and make sure that you and your husband-to-be aren’t in the same place at the same time. 🙂

I’m not sure if he’s staying in the hotel the night before. I am and he might stay in a room with his brother. If so, we will probably have enough attendants to make sure the hallways are clear if I want to head outside or something lol

- Wedding: March 2013 - Callanwolde Fine Arts Center
My Darling Husband and I stayed in the same hotel the night before the wedding. The girls had breakfast and lunch in the bridal suite, so I didn’t actually leave the hotel room until 3 hours before the wedding. My Maid/Matron of Honor and one of my BMs scoped out the route from the elevator to the car before I walked out and made sure it was clear.
It wasn’t too difficult and it was actually pretty fun.

That sounds like an excellent excuse for room service!!! 🙂

@Lori2026: +1 this haha!!
We were in cabins in the same area of the park where we were getting married and when I would need to go outside for any reason, I would have one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man call the Groomsmen to make sure they didn’t come outside until we called them again 🙂 It seemed to work out well, as far as I know!

Awesome! Thanks so much ladies! Fiance and gm will be spending most of the day at the local go cart track while I spend the day at the salon. Was mostly worried about breakfast and bridal portraits. Will let gm know when those will be so they can steer him clear!
Will definitely put Bridesmaid or Best Man on recon missions as well Mission Impossible style. Duck around corners, maybe make them where sunglasses and carry walkie talkies! Haha!

We’re staying in our apartment the night before, but I’ll be at the salon from 11:30 until picture time. I don’t forsee any issues?

@BushelAndAPeck: We are going to be together most of the morning but he wont see me put on my dress… then we will do a first look. So really he will be apart from me for about 3.5 hours while I get hair/makeup done and the dress on.
But, had I not wanted to see him, I would just have my phone with me and make sure I knew where he was. If we werent going to see each other, he would probably be out doing something with his best man or his family. He would just text or call if he was coming anywhere near me. Even just staying on different floors of the hotel should be fine.

The only time we’re going to be apart is while we’re getting ready, and after that we’re meeting up at the first look spot… shouldn’t be too hard to avoid each other for that short time haha. We won’t have cell phones but our wedding party will, so I guess we can just use those for that day.

We had a group breakfast and then went our seperate ways. He went and got ready in his mum room and I didn’t leave ours until hubby had been picked up. I sent the bridesmaids out to make sure he had left 🙂 Ow and we ordered room service for lunch 🙂

we didn’t bother trying to avoid each other.
the morning of, we went and had a special bride and groom breakfast together, we split up for lunch, we got back together and got ready together, and we rode to the ceremony together.
i don’t think i could have held myself together without his support all day.

No direct input. BUT I wanted to pop in here and read the replies, cause it is a cute topic.
(Mr TTR and I stayed in the same Hotel Room before our Elopment / Destination Beach Wedding… so we saw each other off and on during the day… I went to the Spa & Salon… and we had lunch together… and we got dressed together in our Honeymoon Suite before the Wedding. Lol, me in the Bathroom, and he in the Bedroom… it was fun we got to have our first look at each other, because we hadn’t seen each other previously in our Wedding Attire altho we’d seen the clothes on the hangers)

We are staying the night together at the venue the night before our wedding, but we aren’t going to actively try to avoid each other. We figure that we’ll have breakfast and probably lunch together… then split off when it’s time for my hair/makeup and getting ready. Then we’ll see each other at the ceremony. If we cross in a hallway when I’m half-ready, I don’t think it’s going to change anything.
