  • Wedding: September 2018

I just booked an air b and b for the night before. It’s an entire house so we’ll see each other the night before but i’ll be sleeping in one of the rooms with my bridesmaids, and vice versa he’ll be in another with GMs. I might see him in the morning but once we start getting ready, he isn’t allowed near me. hahah!

  • Wedding: September 2016

Our wedding was in my hometown, so we decided to stay at my parent’s for free.  That meant staying in seperate rooms per their house rules for the last time.  We did see each other at breakfast and such though that morning.

We are running away to get married so we will be sharing a cabin and probably a bathroom before leaving for the mountains.

I still haven’t completely decided on if I’m wearing my dress to hike or if I’m going to change in the wilderness. If I change, then he will be somewhere else changing and if not, then he will probably zip me into my dress.

We aren’t doing anything else traditional.

  • Wedding: August 2017

FI will be at home and I will be at a hotel suite where the BM’s will be bringing their dresses and stuff the night before. I’ll be needing to wake up a few hours earlier than him due to hair & makeup so he will probably appreciate the separation lol

No, we are staying together. I have bad anxiety anyway and being separated probably wouldn’t bode well for things the next day.

victoriad :  We will sleep separetely, and not see each other on the morning of (hopefully) as I leave for the salon…

And also, this may be silly.. but since we have been together 5 years now and have been sexual since our first date…. we are planning to try to abstain for about a month before the wedding. My bachelorette in on May 27, wedding is June 23. The plan is to abstain in between the 2.

FI and I did 14 months of long distance – to which we said never again if we can help it! We both sleep much better with the other so we’ll share the bed the night before. 🙂

  • Wedding: November 2011

victoriad :  My DH and I slept in the same bed the night before. We didn’t go for any of the typical “traditions” like sleeping in separate houses or bachelor/bachelorette parties or anything that meant celebrating being single because we were already so committed to each other. I was already pregnant and we couldn’t wait to be married any longer. I think it works well for people who truly believe in having that time to yourself or with your friends or family but it’s definitely ok to do it however you feel comfortable.

We stayed together at home the night before our wedding. I think it really helped DH as he was really anxious about the wedding.
