I personally have trouble sleeping without my Fiance because I get sooo cold at night and he’s like my own personal space heater so I might ask if I could push them together to make a king but I would never complain. I would be super grateful that I didn’t have to sleep on the floor or a couch.

It would only annoy me if they were purposefully separating us, i.e. there was an available queen mattress and they insisted we sleep on the two twin beds. I am renting an Airbnb for my wedding for everyone to stay at. There is one room with two twin bunk beds. I’ve told my bridal party in advance that would be where they would sleep so they knew in advance that they (my bridesmaid and best man are a couple and my maid of honor and groomsman is a couple) would be in that room together.

Overjoyed :  I just read your update. I would actually prefer to sleep on the pull out with my Fiance than in a twin bed alone. Could you ask the couple what they prefer first?

For a week? I wouldn’t care. In fact the opposite, I’d gloriously starfish the fuck out of those 7 days.

I’d probably just snuggle into the same bed just as we used to back when we first met and both of us only had twins anyway. I wonder if we’d still fit though.. we’ve packed on some poundage.

Overjoyed :  If Darling Husband and I had separate beds on our vaca, I’d make my bed into a little fort of pillows and blankets and throw balled up socks at him

I would mind at all, especially for only a couple of nights.

Granted, I currently get greeted by an air mattress when I go to my mom’s house, and also slept with my now Fiance on a twin XL bed every time I visited him in college for about a year. If we can make do on that, two twin beds are no problem!

Overjoyed :  Yes they all have separate frames! They are pushed right up against eachother, so from far away it kind of looks like one big bed if the duvets match. No headboards though, I guess I can see that being an issue if the headboards are a lot wider than the beds themselves. The photos you posted look perfect though 🙂

my husband and i would crawl into one twin bed together. if we knew ahead of time what the situation was, we would probably look for other sleeping arrangments. sleeping together in one bed is a very valued aspect of our relationship (seriously, we don’t sleep well apart – we cuddle all night). furthermore, i avoid twin beds because they’re really *short* – my feet hit the footboard (and Darling Husband is really uncomfortable). twin beds are simply not designed for an adult.

It would be weird on behalf of the hosts to offer a married couple such a room arrangement. However, if there was no place else to stay, I’d deal. If it was a problen, we would say thank you but stay at a hotel.

catskillsinjune :  I didn’t even think about that. I doubt my SO would even fit in a twin bed, he’s too tall!

Would not care. It’s a bed an adult human can sleep in. It’s not like I’m being given a toddler bed.
