So, I was wondering… where is everyone staying the night before their wedding? I want to book a hotel room for my bridesmaids and I the night before the wedding. I figure this way, it’ll be easy to wake up and get ready without the chance of running into my Fiance. When I mentioned this idea to my Maid/Matron of Honor, she said she had never really heard of people staying in a hotel the night before unless they were from out of town.
So what is everyone doing? Anyone doing the hotel route like me?

My Maid/Matron of Honor and I are actually staying @ the hotel our reception is being held at the night before and will have use of the suite all day to get ready. Since my FH and I live together, he’ll be @ the house. People do it all the time. 🙂

I’m planning on getting a hotel room, even though we live in the same city where our wedding’s taking place. I agree with you, I think it’s just easier to have myself and at least some of my BMs in the same place when we need to start getting ready. Plus I think it starts the day off on a special note, waking up in a hotel! Are you staying in the same hotel that night with your husband? If so, are you keeping the same room or getting a new one?

@nhl: That’s what we’re planning on doing too 🙂
@hilsy: The night of our wedding, He and I are going to stay in the same hotel but in a different room. My bridemaids are just going to stay over again in the room from the previous night. I agree, I thought it’d be special to wake up somewhere different the morning of the wedding!

That sounds like fun to me! We stayed at my place (including a bunch of bridesmaids and my parents). I really wanted to sleep in my own bed…I sleep best there. DH and I stayed in a nice hotel on Thursday, the day before the rehearsal (which was at 11am Friday). We had a nice date night, walked around the boardwalk type area, had some cobbler, crashed in our ridiculously cushy hotel bed, and watched comedy central.

we plan on all staying at a hotel (as the wedding is not where my parents, his parents, or we live ). Fiance and i don’t want to see each other before the ceremony so we’ll have to coordinate the morning so we don’t bump into each other in the hallway 🙂

I wanted to get a hotel room too but my Mother told me not to. I’m bummed because we’ll have family and most of my BM’s all in one house. It’s going to be stressful but when Mommy speaks, I listen. My parents do have a pretty big house with a plenty of beds for us all but its going to be chaotic. I’d suggest doing the hotel room if you can!

My parents live in the area where I’m getting married and they have a really nice house, so me and half of my bridesmaids will be staying there. The other half of my BMs are from the area.
Fiance, however, is staying in a hotel. His parents live in a teeny tiny house an hour from the wedding and it would just be a pain to go back and forth. I think he might even be sharing a room with one of his single groomsmen (several others are married)

I’m staying in a hotel with my bridesmaids. We booked a suite to have for the night before/getting ready, and then my fiance (or I guess, he’ll be my husband then!) and I will stay there on the wedding night.
The night before, my fiance and his groomsmen will stay at our apartment.

I’m staying at our apartment, my BM’s will probably be staying with me here as well, at least two out of four. I sleep best in my own bed and I want to get a good night’s rest. We’ll then caravan to the house near our ceremony site where we are getting ready.

Fiance and I will either stay at a hotel closer to venue, or our house!

I got a hotel room and asked all of my bm to have a girls sleep over. A couple came over to help me out with some last minute stuff but only one of my bm stayed the night. It was fun though.

I will be staying at our house – I really want to get ready in my own space and don’t want to have to bring all my stuff to get ready at the hotel. The guys will be using the suite to get ready!
I am hoping that Fiance will stay with me in our house the night before – I sleep better with him and then we can have breakfast in bed (served by one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man or parents who will all be staying at our house) and then go our separate ways! But he isn’t so sure and may want to part ways the night before. Hopefully I can convince him in the next 8 months;-)

I booked a suite at a hotel for two nights. One night will be me and my maids the night before, and the second night will be us the night of our wedding.

I’ll be staying at Mom & Dad’s while Fiance stays at our place. We get a free night at the Ritz Carlton included in our wedding package for the night of, but I don’t want to spend any extra on another hotel room for the night before.
