We stayed together. It was silly not to.

+1 I was with my husband the night before our wedding. We had sex the morning of. Laughing

When we renew our vows, we will also spend a few days together before the ceremony. Just like the first time, we will have breakfast together and then go off to get ready.

@Beachy0404:  I thought about doing this, but FH won’t go for it since it’s bad luck in his culture. So we’ll be staying separately!

@Beachy0404:  I did! I don’t really believe in luck and I wanted to spend my evening and morning with my favorite person in the world. We even had breakfast together and everything.

One of my MOH’s stayed over with me at the suite and DH stayed at his parents house.

Nothing wrong if you want to spend the night with Fiance, but there’s a lot to be said about having some girl time.  (Her DH spent the night at her parents house, what a trooper!)

We are sharing a suite the night before! He’ll leav. After we all have breakfast together. I’m looking forward to waking up with him 🙂

We got married at Disney, stayed together (with my kids!) the night before and then got ready together. We even have pictures of him lacing up my dress!

Our photographers said they loved it compared to all the other weddings they had done because we were so relaxed and had so much fun getting ready together!

We’re not. I have to be up at 7 AM for hair and make-up (as will my Maid/Matron of Honor and FG). Therefore, they are staying over at my house and FH is going elsewhere to prep for the big day.

We were torn on this. I sleep better when I’m next to him, but he really wanted to stay traditional in this matter, so we slept apart. I was at the hotel we got married at and he was at our apartment. It did make it super special that the first time we saw each other was as I came down the aisle, but it wouldn’t have been a big deal if we had stayed together the night before. Whatever works best!

@Beachy0404:  we are going to stay together. Our wedding is not until 5 pm. I want to enjoy the morning/ breakfast with him and we are in a suite in Vegas, seems silly to make him stay elsewhere. We will part before getting ready. It would probably be the same if we weren’t having a destination wedding because we live together.

We are definetly staying together the night before. We have this lovely beach shack/cabin booked and I don’t see any good reason to kick one of us out beforehand Smile.

I can see us spending the morning together and having breakfast before I head off to get ready at a house my family are renting. I think it will be nice to have a quiet moment together before all the crazyness begins.

I think do whatever you think is best… at the end of the day you decide whether a marriage works or not, it isnt down to if he saw you before you stuck on your dress.Wink

We booked a condo for our Destination Wedding and arrived the night before our wedding.  We stayed together. In the morningI left and got ready at my mmom’s hotel. My husband and his family readied in our condo.

I stayed with my DH that night before the wedding.  We had a Destination Wedding in Mexico so had been on vacation for several days prior.  Everyone kept saying that we had to sleep apart, but we thought it was silly.  Our wedding didn’t start until 6:00 pm and we were doing a first look anyway.  It’s not like we were going to run aruond the resort hiding from each other all day.

We are neither traditional nor superstitious.  I don’t see what the big deal is. 

I will suggest another solution to your problem though – you could get an additional room for that night for him to stay in on his own.
