I am SO with you on this. So many “traditions” are so silly and outdated!

I know lots of people who didn’t see each other before and still got divorced.  It’s just a silly superstition!  I want for my fiance and I to see each other before for practical/time reasons, but he really wants to wait to see me when I walk down the aisle.  I think whatever you do is fine!

my hubby and i wanted to spend the night before the wedding together… but we didn’t because our wedding party wouldn’t allow it.   I don’t think they realized how much it really bothered us that they did that, hahah.    We both just really wanted a good sleep in our own bed… no biggie.  he was gonna leave to go do stuff at 8am.. and i would be outta the house at 9:30…

…geez, I didn’t realize it was a big tradition….Mr. 99 and I spent that night apart just to make seeing each other all the more exciting the next night.  I did talk to him on the phone all day though and it wasn’t because we were afraid of “bad luck”

@Kee_Jay22:  lolz, we are having such a non traditional wedding. Not only is FI seeing the dress, my hair, the make up before the wedding but we are getting ready in the same home. 

All I have to say is, when you live together for 3 + years, a wedding isn’t going to change a thing AND we are non comformists, we like to do whatever we want to do.

That being said, I respect the decisions of someone else to incorporate tradition and one should also respect my decision to incorporate non tradition ;p

I never heard of this tradition. 

Of course it does not matter, it’s just a superstition.  All superstitions are silly. 

I do not believe in luck at all – good or bad.

I believe in making your own rules as long as they cause no harm to anyone.  I’m not a traditional person, at all, and neither is DH.  The only traditional things we did in our wedding were the ones we liked.  Spending the night before our wedding apart wasn’t something we wanted to do, so we didn’t.

It was not a tradition that we chose to uphold, but it doesn’t bother me when others choose to do so for their own weddings.

“But also had a lot of ppl in my family tell me all of that was bad luck” 

Luck Schmuck!  Ask them if they believe in the Easter bunny too!

 

It’s fine to do traditions for the SAKE of traditions (heck I did one of them, even though it was silly), but to believe it actually has any influence on the success if your long term mappy marriage is just illogical (to me).  Tell it to them like that.

I don’t care about this particular tradition – I’m choosing to stay with my girls in our hotel suite the night before the wedding because I know that if I have to wake up super early to drive to the hotel, I’ll probably be crabby! 🙂 So instead, Mr. O is going to have his guys to our apartment for video games and other shenanigans, while the girls and I enjoy some wedding movies and girl talk.
