Hey Destination Wedding brides… are you and your Fiance staying in the same hotel room the night before your wedding? I can’t decide what to do. My Fiance and I live together now. We will be sharing a hotel room two nights prior to our wedding and we will see one another right before the ceremony, for a private photo session with our photographer. My practical side says it’s not worth spending $200 on a second hotel room but then the traditional side of me thinks we should stay apart that night and not see one another until our private session with the photog. What are you planning to do?

Is there a friend he could crash with? I’m having my sister stay with me the night of. We are also doing pics before ceremony, so we will see eachother then, but I kind of like the last night along thing. It’ll also help me to be well-rested! I might not do it if money was an issue, but check out the options…

We are planning on staying together the night before the wedding because, well, I want to sleep next to my love the night before our big day! We are not traditional and feel comfortable spending time together the day of (we will be getting dressed seperately, however). If you think you will sleep better next to your FH, then go ahead and stay together…but if it is importent to you to sleep apart, go with a sister or friend.

My Fiance is going to crash with either his family at their villa or with a friend or I will go share a room with my mommy. Either way, we won’t stay together the night before the wedding. I’m not traditional, but my Fiance and his family are.

I am going through the same dilemma. I may beg my sister to come stay with me and send my Fiance to stay wtih her bf (luckily, they are pretty good friends), or I may just not worry about it and spend it together. I think it might end up being one of those game-time decisions- less stress in the meantime!

WE are staying together the night before, and will be working on some wedding things the morning of. We’ll split up mid-day to get ready and not see eachother again until I come walking down the isle. I understand the tradition, but it would be silly and a waste of money in our situation.

we stayed at our house – but in separate bedrooms because I didn’t want to see him the morning of the wedding until our first look.
It wasn’t worth it for us to pay $150/night to stay in a hotel room that was less than a mile from our house.
If your house is in the town of your wedding then just stay there!

not destination- but i just got married and we decided on seperate rooms the night before. and then as we were seperating we talked about how stupid it was! (for us, i get that others have their reasons, but it just wasn’t necessary for us.) we also live together, we had a first look because we had a ketubah signing and pictures before. i think i would have had WAY less nerves if i could have seen him until i was actually starting to get ready. that’s not to say that i didn’t have an awesome time with my family- but i just didn’t see the point in us being apart.

My Fiance stayed at his dad’s house and I stayed at the hotel where we spent our wedding night.

For the wedding, a couple of the groomsmen rented a house to stay in together. So that is where my Fiance will sleep the night before the wedding, and I’m staying at my parents’ house.

Where are you getting married? I’ve heard some resorts will give the groom a free room for the night (assuming there is one available). I would check with your resort. It doesn’t hurt the ask!
We’re just going to stay together and part in the morning.
