We’ll say goodbye the night before and I’ll the night at my parents house. I think its not only traditional but also really romantic knowing that the next time we’ll see eachother is as I’m walking down the aisle 🙂

We have lived together for years and we have gone to bed together for 98% of that so it would’ve been super bizarre and weird for us to not be together the night before. We didn’t have a Bridal Party either so if we didn’t spend it with each other, I guess we would’ve been alone. I get that there’s the whole anticipation thing, but I guess we are a little offbeat in that department.

Well, we’re getting married in my hometown, and instead of spending the money on a hotel room we’ll be staying at my parents’ house. It’s a nice big house with plenty of room for people to get ready in, and my parents are the least stressful people I know to be around. In the morning, I’ll sequester myself on the second floor with my girls, and Fiance and his guys can have the rest of the house until we do the first look.

We stayed together. We’d been living together 8 years at that point. Plus, DH travels a lot for work (like a couple months at a time all throughout the year) and just really relishes the little bit of time he gets to be home in our bed. Us girls were getting ready at our house, while DH was going to be getting ready at the house his parents rented (they came from Out of Town, and we live in a resort area so they rented a “vacation house” that was literally within walking distance of our venue).
I felt bad making DH sleep somewhere else, since he’s hardly home, and it felt silly for me to sleep somewhere else only to come home to get ready. We just decided we were staying together. We had a late night the night before, so it was nice to wake up to each other and say goodbye before he left for the day.

We are having a Destination Wedding, and the resort give us the suite presidencial, so we are gonna stay together 🙂

Yes, we’re in the same hotel room. And at $450 a night, getting two rooms would be absurd!

@judybot: We are eloping, so I am not going to get a different hotel room than him for the night before the wedding, lol. He is helping me pick the dress, so not much is a secret from that man anyway!

I think you should do whatever makes you happy. We’ve been living together for the past 5 years but we’re going to spend the night before apart. We’re having a Destination Wedding in Jamaica and renting a villa, so he’ll just move into another room or I’ll move in for the night with one of the bridesmaids.
However, odds are that he’ll see me the next day before the wedding…as it will be kinda hard to avoid him I think…but maybe not…who knows? I guess it doesn’t really make sense to spend the night apart if he sees me before I’m walking down the aisle, but whatever…it’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to right??? 🙂
The point is…it is YOUR day…do whatever make you happy!!

Oh…we are totally doing what we want to do regardless of what others think we should do. I was just wondering if we were in the minority and what the actual split was. Whether he has to go all night and the morning before to wait to see me, or just a few hours while we each get ready, we’ll both be bawling out eyes out once I’m walking up the aisle 🙂

We don’t live together so no… we won’t be together the night before! I think it’ll be even more exciting when we get to the hotel the night of the wedding!

We spent the night apart (after living together pretty much the entire 6 years of dating pre-wedding), it made me so anxious to see him the day of the wedding, and that moment when we locked eyes as I neared the end of the aisle and saw each other for the first time that day with HUGE grins on our faces was epic. I don’t think not sleeping together the night before is bad luck or improper or anything and I’m typically not a very traditional person, but I know in general that every time we’re apart it makes us miss each other and appreciate each other being around so much more and that it would make for a more exciting wedding day and night Plus, I shared a hotel room w/ my bridesmaids and other friends and we had a blast girling out the night before and morning of which was nice.

We spent the night together and I wouldn’t have in any other way. I would have never of gotten to sleep other wise, to many nerves. It was really nice waking up next to him knowing that day we will be married. We had a group breakfast with most of the Destination Wedding guest then went our seperate ways it was a lovely way to start the day 🙂
