    None. We're going to sleep in the same bed the night before-I'm not superstitious. : (24 votes)

    Maybe a few days separate to let us both finish last minute details and relax with friends. : (6 votes)

    We parted ways about 11pm prior to the wedding day and I could not WAIT to see/talk to him. I also didn’t really have time to ‘miss’ him, since I was busy getting ready, taking pictures, etc.  

    By the time the wedding day rolled around I just wanted to get the show on the road and be married all ready! πŸ™‚  

    Can I ask why you feel like you WANT to miss him?  Or, do you want him to make sure he misses you (meaning – as some show of love and adoration?) or is it something else?

    I didn’t realize he felt this way, but he insisted we part ways after the rehearsal dinner, and not see each other until I walk down the aisle. I would rather we spend the night together, and then have a first look, but he has so few requests, I suppose I’ll be honoring this one. Though it makes me anxious thinking about not being able to see him until we’re up in front of everyone!

    One of my friends who got married last year put it nicely:

    “Why would I spend one of the most stressful nights of my life separated from the person who keeps me the most calm?”

    I am most certainly sleeping with Fiance the night before.

    @ruby26:   Same here. We will have the rehearsal dinner and drinks with everyone afterwards, then I’m off to my hotel room for the night. I plan to be up early the next morning to start setting up for the ceremony and reception with my girls, getting ready for the wedding ceremony, and photos with the girls only and my family. I think the guys may go on a hike or play a round of golf or something. I would so love to do the “first look,” but my Fiance would rather see me for the first time as I approach the aisle.

    I told him I was going to stay the night with my bridesmaids but he actually objected and I definitely agreed. He and I don’t really sleep well unless we are sleeping together. Why have a bad nights sleep the night before our big day? We aren’t superstitous either really. I was just surprised that he felt that way.

    I never thought of it, but on my wedding day I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that the ONE person who could calm my nerves and make me feel better was the ONE person I “couldn’t” see. We slept together the night before and had sex that morning to help me mellow out but then spent about eight hours apart before the ceremony. I honestly thought that was plenty. I mean, we both travel for work and are accustomed to spending time apart but during THAT time, I don’t know. I just needed him. A lot.

    We have decided that we will part ways after rehersal dinner. I’m a little nervous about this, considerring we have lived together for 2 years and i dont think we have spent a night apart since then… Ekkk. My Maid/Matron of Honor might just have to be my cuddle buddy that night. Thats what she is for right? hehe

    But after rehersal dinner the next time we will see eachother is when i walk down the isle…. πŸ™‚

    We will also part ways after the rehersal dinner! I think it will really be special to spend the night before our wedding apart, kinda builds up some excitement! Although I will not be spending the night alone, my two bridesmaids and Maid/Matron of Honor will be with me, we will be sharing a room at the same B&B where our ceremony and reception will be.  He will be at another hotel with the boys πŸ™‚

    We’re separating after the rehearsal dinner.  I really want him to sleep with me that night, but everyone else (including FI) said no.  Our wedding isn’t until 7pm the next day!  I’m going to be freaking out, and I wish he’d be there to calm me down.  Haha, chances are though he’d be freaking out, too!

    Our rehearsal dinner is two days before, so we will probably go out with everyone after and the next day afternoon I will be checking into the hotel, spending that whole day with bridesmaids and relaxing. So it is more like a day and a half for us. I think that’s enough time, especially if your not talking or texting……
