busybeebee:  My Fi said ‘I don’t want to be apart from you the night before’ (aww!) so that was that decided! I really don’t mind, actually I’m planning on secretly setting ‘Marry You’ by Bruno Mars as our alarm and then do a silly dance for him the morning of and reading a letter to him before going off alone to do my make up at the venue ahead of him!

We stayed together at my apartment the night before and got up together the morning of. It was quite nice! I think it helped to start the day in a more normal way, and it kept nerves at bay. We didn’t get any direct opposition, but certainly had people calling it strange and bad luck! Oh well, I’m happy with it.

We’re staying together! I don’t sleep well apart from him- we’ve been living together for years. 

We’re going to get ready separately, of course, but I think we’re going to do a first look. I don’t believe in the “bad luck” thing!

We are definitely seeing each other the morning of. Were actually making a weekend of it and having a mini vaca with our best friends ( a couple) so the night before we can unwind together and then get ready together all 4 of us before the crowd gathers. Neither of us is traditional in that sense and I think if I was away from Fiance all morning I’d be more anxious and nervous.

We stayed together the night before our wedding. I was insistant at first for him to stay at the hotel with his groomsmen, but when the time came for him to go, I just couldn’t let him leave. I was a ball of nerves and my family (who was staying with me) drives me crazy. He stayed the night and we spent a lot of time talking about the events for the next day. He truely calms me down.

busybeebee:  Do what yoou feel is right. Fiance and I will not see each other the morning of, we will have seperate hotel rooms. However, we have not been sleeping together for quite some time and by the time we get married it will be almost a year. I am considering a first look though and it would go against the tradition as well.

We will definitely sleep together the night before our wedding, and also do some last minute finishing set up touches in the early morning of our wedding day.  We will still do a “first look” once we’re all prettied up in our wedding finery, and I think that those few hours of me getting all ready apart from him will be enough anticipation!

The night before the wedding, we shared a double bed with two dogs.  We had breakfast together, and got ready together.  I’ve never understood the point of that tradition.

busybeebee:  I did the same and also got a bit of flack for it.  I mainly dealt with it by not bringing it up with people.  If someone asked about it I would just say that we were staying together.  IF they were horrified and suggested we didn’t I would just say, “hmm, maybe we’ll think about it.”  We did think about it.  And we decided to stay togeher.  

Our wedding was in the evening, plus we were doing a first look before hand.  We weren’t about to avoid each other all day long.

My husband and I saw each other the morning of our wedding. We stayed in the same hotel the night before, but he stayed with his cousin (groomsman) and I stayed with my bridal party which consisted of my two sisters and sister-in-law. That morning we all had breakfast together. I think it helped us destress and lighten the mood alittle bit before all the big things started to happen!

busybeebee:  We live together and are staying the night at our house and probably having breakfast together. Then he will depart for his parent’s house and I will stay at home because that’s where the girls are getting ready. I doubt it will bring bad luck! 🙂

busybeebee:  I stayed with DH the night before and I don’t regret it one bit. Who else would I want with me the night before a huge life changing event? Also, it seemed silly to get a second hotel room and move our stuff back and forth.

I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Plenty of people do it nowadays, and I like cbgg’s suggestion of just saying ‘we’ll think about it’ if people bring it up. It’ll get them off your case.

As for if me and Fiance are doing that, no, we’re not. We don’t live together and I’m staying in a hotel room the night before with my BM’s. Fiance will be at his house, so there’s no real reason for us to see each other before the wedding except if we were doing a first look, which we’re not because Fiance is very traditional and refused. He’s very anti-seeing-the-bride-before-the-ceremony haha.
