Honestly, I didn’t think it was more special. But that’s just me. I, personally, would have rather us slept together and both gotten a good night’s sleep. But it was important to Mother-In-Law to have Darling Husband stay in their house the night before the wedding.

@Treasure43: My Mother-In-Law is also looking forward to this 🙂 I am indifferent but I will stay at my own home so thats the most important to me.

My husband and I stayed in a hotel room together the night before the wedding and I am glad we did.  We lived together before getting married, and it seemed silly to spend the night apart that one night.  We woke up in the morning and had breakfast together as well before going our own ways to get ready for the wedding.  It was one of my favorite parts of the day!

I had a ‘girl night’ with my best friend (MOH), my Mom, and my little cousin (flower girl).  I had a great time getting excited with them and had a wonderful sleep.  I think it made our ‘first look’ moment all the more special. 

As a super cute bonus: my flower girl has since told her parents that that girls night before the wedding was the best day of her whole life.  Just for fun, here is a pic of us.

@apex: I’m wondering about this too.  Fiance and all my friends told me that we absolutely CANNOT stay together the night before.  Hmm I guess its going to be a girls night?!

I think I would’ve been fine sleeping in the same place as my husband but logistically it didn’t work for getting ready. I felt the same as you though– weird about sleeping in a strange hotel alone. So, I asked my friend/bm if she’d share a hotel room with me the night before the wedding so I didnt have to be alone. It was kind of nice to spend my last night as a single lady with one of my oldest friends, hs sleepover style 🙂

We had a destination wedding and booked two big beach houses, just a couple of minutes walk apart, the night before me and my bridesmaids had a sleepover then the stylist came to the house the next day and we all got ready there the boys did the same thing. 

It was really special to have that time apart, as it made the moment when we saw each other at the church so much more special, It was also so much fun having a girly sleepover!!!!

The resort where our Destination Wedding is gives us a free room for my Fiance for the night before.  We are going to take it so that he can use it the next day to get ready in, but we can’t think of anything nicer than to wake up the morning of our wedding in each others arms.  We are going to take a walk on the beach at dawn and have breakfast then part.

I don’t know if for me it was necessarily more special, I just had the fun option of having a slumber party with my bridesmaids, so I took it. 

I think if you want to spend the evening with your husband to be, that’s just fine.

For me it was special because I had a sleepover with my bridesmaids and the other important women in my life came to play games and chat and have wine the night before.  Although yes, I also think it was special to not see each other until the first look.

Darling Husband and I slept in the same bed the night before the wedding and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
