    @mrs.peters.to.be: Happy Friday! We kept it separate. I also was recently in a wedding where her and her now husband lived together. they wanted to keep it special where he saw her for the first time walking down the aisle. They both said that it was really nice to be able to do that. It’s totally a personal preference, but I think there’s something magical about that moment that you just don’t get back.

    We slept in the same room! Would not have been able to sleep without him. Plus, things were so crazy/hectic, it was nice to get centered again away from all of that the night before/morning of. We slept in together the day of the wedding (nothing started till about 1pm), and it was so great to be able to laze around and cuddle on our wedding day!

    We’re planning on staying together at our resort. Our ceremony isnt until 5:30 so we’ll have plenty of time to part ways after the huge buffet breakfast that the resort offers the guests each morning. We thought it was silly to have to dodge each other during breakfast. Besides, he is the one person on the planet who can keep me calm, cool and collected. I’ll need him to be there that night!

    Meh. We’re sleeping in our hotel room the night before and the night after the wedding. It would be way too logistically complicated to do it any other way.

    @UpstateCait: I keep meaning to ask you: where are you getting married? My family has a house in Hague (where we got engaged!) and I’ve always dreamed of doing a wedding up there, but it’s just too logistically complicated living so far away. Every time you post I want to say hi. ๐Ÿ™‚

    We’re also getting married in Mexico and plan to spend the night before the wedding together. 

    It seems like too much hassle rearranging rooms to sleep apart. Additionally, our wedding isn’t until 6 p.m. so we’ll just part after waking up.

    I having a Destination Wedding in Jamaica at 4pm and decided to spend the night before separate. My girl friends will be sleeping in our suite with me and Fiance will bunk with one of his friends. I just think it will be that more special when he sees me walking down the isle. If we do run into eachother…no biggy, but will try not to.

    Were doing a first look and that is breaking enough of that tradition for me… My family is traveling 4 hours for the wedding and will probably be staying in a hotel already but Im taking over our house with my BMs and Parents for the night and my FH will be going to his mothers, or I told him if he so chooses we can get a hotel for him and the guys.  We have the same dilemma that our ceremony isnt until 8pm so thats a long day but between hair appts, nail appts, maybe some massages we will be able to stay seperate

    We had a Destination Wedding as well, and already were settled in our room. We woke up together, and got ready separately, and it wasn’t any less special.

    @Miss Chapstick: I agree. I dont personally think sleeping with your Fiance the night before is any less special.

    It seems like EVERYONE I KNOW has told us not to sleep together the night before but little do they know, that just makes us want to do it more.  Cool

    Because of the time of our arrival, etc we had our final walkthrough with the wedding coordinator the morning of and we both had to be there for logistics (we didn’t have a rehersal so this was the time to talk out all the details).  Since we were going to be together in the morning anyway, we just decided to stay together the night before.

    You get to sleep with him every night for the rest of  your life. One night without him will help build the anticipation of the next day a little more and make that day just a tiny bit more special. ๐Ÿ™‚
