We spent the night together.  He also saw me with my hair and makeup done before the wedding when we made the trip from the hotel to the cruise ship (he didn’t see me in my dress though).  I figure we already bucked convention by living together and buying a house together before marriage

llevinso:  I wanted to stay with Fiance the night before. We are getting married in our city, but staying at the hotel the night before since all of our family and friends will be there. We were going to stay in our suite that we got for the weekend, since we aren’t superstitous or that in to tradition. We’ve been together for almost 10.5 years when we get married and have lived together for 8. I sleep better when he is there. BUT my sister threw a fit and told me she wants to stay with me the night before because its the “night before my wedding and thats what you do”. She is younger than me and very in to the traditions of weddings. She was also kind of upset that my other maids weren’t staying with me the night before. They are all married, engaged or in very serious relationships & I didn’t want them to feel like they needed to stay with me in a cramped hotel room. I told them they could do whatever they wanted and enjoy the weekend at the hotel. I am a big girl, I don’t need a bunch of friends staying with me the night before. So, I am going to take some meds and hopefully it will knock me out so that I can get a decent nights rest.

We’re staying together the night before. We already live together, plus I have anxiety problems and he makes me feel better 🙂 So I definitely don’t want to spend a night away from him for tradition’s sake.

We had a casual wedding. We slept in our usual bed at home the night before the wedding. It would’ve been weird to be sleeping apart.

We’ll be staying together at our house the night before the wedding. It’s easier, and I don’t see the point in being apart really. Being together the night before and in the morning will probably keep our nerves at bay on the day too.

My fiance and I are sleeping together the night before the wedding. With him traveling for work, we spend enough time apart. He won’t even be home until a few days before our wedding next month.

We will probably be together…I think when you live together for as many years as we have it really is silly to follow that old tradition. 

we have friends who recently got married…they told us they got it onnnnn the night before because they knew they would be too tired/drunk after such a party

that makes so much sense !!

I like the tradition. We’ll be having dinner with all the out of towners and people involved in the wedding the night before but we’ll split afterwards. He’ll be home with our pets and I’m staying in a hotel with my sister and some relatives.

We will be sleeping in the same bed, as we can’t sleep without each other (both have insomnia) but we will not be having sex for a full month before the wedding. Fiance is very unhappy with this but I want there to be lots of sexual buildup for our first time as a married couple 😛

Do whatever makes you comfortable! It sounds like you were looking forward to being with your girls the night before. If it’s important to you and you think it will help calm your nerves, explain that to your FH. However, he may feel better having you by his side the night before an important day. You may need to compromise here 🙂 either way don’t worry about the tradition part of it.

We are having a destination wedding and renting a huge house for the week and everyone is staying there. We are definitely sleeping together the night before. We will also be going on a hike together the morning of and having breakfast. Then well get ready separately, but will go around the island taking pictures before the ceremony. We’ve lived together 4.5 years, there’s no point in sleeping separately the night before.

We are planning to sleep together at the hotel, have breakfast and then he is going to his brothers room to get ready. I always sleep better with him would miss our “pillow talk” – little chats we have when we wake up together and don’t have to go rushing off to work.

We’ll be sleeping in the same bed, will take up together, will eat breakfast together and walk down the aisle together (eloping). No tradition here ha.

My Fiance is extremely superstitious so he wants to sleep separately the night before. I think it will be cool for anticipation purposes and he thinks it will make it exciting for when we see each when I’m walking down the aisle..
