I am just wondering if anyone is choosing to sleep with her fiance the night before the wedding (and waking up together on the wedding day). My fiance says that he doesn’t want to sleep seperately the night before, but I think it would be fun to have a big sleepover of all of the bridesmaids, and then the boys can all stay together.
One more question…. if you are doing a "sleepover"…. I am doing a destination wedding, and the bridesmaids are all coming with their husbands, so do you think that it would be too much to ask to leave their husbands alone (some of them are friends, so maybe they can do something together . . . )?

I love the idea of all the girls being together the night before and all of the guys being together! As long as all of your ladies are your close friends or even better if they know each other I wouldn’t think they would mind spending one night away from their husbands/dates. Especially since they are there to support you!

we did the sleepover thing for my sister’s wedding and i’m planning on doing it for mine too! it was a lot of fun and helped us all get to know each other better.

I am having a ‘Girl’s Night In’ overnighter at our hotel. Some of my friends are married and we have been friends since Junior High- their husbands understand our friendship bond is like… SACRED. So their hubby’s wouldn’t dare try to wrangle that night from us!!! The following morning we plan on having a ‘primping and prepping’ session at a nearby salon.
Funny story. I was a bridesmaid at my friends wedding. The day before it was raining. So that night we all went to asleep together in a King sized bed like a bunch of kids… the next morning- the day of the wedding, I dragged myself out of bed. My friend (the bride) mumbled… "is it still raining?" I grumbled, ‘I haven’t checked hold on’. And I reached the hotel drapes, I threw them open- and there was DAYLIGHT! All the ladies squeeled awake jumping up and down on the bed! There was sunshine on our friends wedding day- when the previous day it was dark, dreary, wet and cold.
By far, the BEST friendship memory we all look back on.
Do a sleepover. It is great bonding.

My fiance would prefer us to spend the night together, but I just LOVE the idea of a big sleepover with my girls. I’m trying to convince him to have a guy sleepover too; the idea that he could watch all 6 Star Wars movies in a row with his guys might just sway his mind!

I can’t fall asleep when he leaves on business or if one of us goes out of town. I think I’d get a more restful sleep if we stick with our normal routine as much as possible… plus, I think it’s going to be sweet to wake up together on The Big Day and share the last quiet, private time we’ll have ALL DAY!

My cousin is hosting our girl’s night–she’s having someone come in that does massages and facials and all other manner of girly goodness. We decided a long time ago that it just seemed like a better way to do things–girls with the girls, guys with the guys.

Hm. I love the idea of a big sleepover with my two sisters (we’re just having our siblings stand up with us), but I worry that I won’t be able to sleep without my dude there!

Though my Fiance and I will have lived together for 2 years by the time of our wedding (yikes!) my mother would KILL me if we slept together the night before. So, I’ll be staying with my sister (and hopefully her 10 month old will be with her hubby!)

Like amester26, I have trouble getting good sleep when the mister is not around. Since we’re having a destination wedding, for us to have boy/girl sleepovers we’d have to get another room. I’d rather us just stick to our normal schedule and save the money getting another hotel room. Plus I just like the idea of waking up next to him on our wedding day. 🙂

I also like the idea of waking up together on our wedding day. I always thought I’d do a girls sleepover thing, but I’m just not sure anymore!

our wedding was an hour away from where we lived, and our venue had 4 beautiful hotel rooms. I stayed the night before with my 5 of my 6 BMs. One decided to stay with her husband and baby at the main hotel, and the only other Bridesmaid or Best Man who was in a relationship, well he stayed with us! It was this whole long drawn out discussion, but she didn’t want to get an extra room for him and we had space soooo….he basically was not allowed to leave his room all night OR the next day while we were getting ready. It worked out great! we had fun hanging out the night before and had the whole place to ourselves the next day.

We’re staying together! Why miss out on our last chance to have premarital sex? Hehe. It just may be the only thing that will help us go to sleep on such an exciting night 😉

We are renting out a beach house and the wedding party will be staying together- thats as close as we are going to get. I’m so used to sleeping with him that I dont think either of us would have a very good night sleeping without each other. A grumpy bride is not a happy bride.
