I saw my hubby the morning of, and I am glad we did.
After we got home from the Groom’s Dinner, we still had to pack an overnight bag for the hotel after the wedding stuff was done… and this allowed us to do that, but also sleep in our own beds where we’ll be the most comfortable. Granted, I was still trying to get over a cold and wasn’t sleeping that great all week… I am happy I did that than stay in a hotel with my sister.
Plus, I was doing my own make-up and hate hotel lighting. I wanted what I was used to and that was home. Plus, I could pack my morning stuff as I was getting ready. It all worked out.
We still did a first look, as he only saw me with my make-up on, around 12:30 that day. I wouldn’t change anything!

I won’t see Fiance the night before, but we are doing a tea ceremony, door games, and first look so we’ll be seeing each other on and off the whole day before the ceremony at 5.

At first I had the brief thought of going to either my best friend’s house or getting a hotel room the night before since Fiance already live together, but then I decided this would be really silly and also a lot of extra work for me as well. And when I mentioned the tradition to my Fiance he said he puts no stock at all in old superstitions and sees no sense in one of us having to leave our home just to ward off “bad luck”…and he is right. We will both stay home the night before, take care of things we need to before being gone all day long, and then part ways when it’s time for my Maid/Matron of Honor and I to get our hair done and head to the church. I also originally thought about not seeing one another in our wedding clothes before the actual start of the ceremony, but with some last-minute changes to our reception plans it will actually work out better to take most of our photos beforehand rather than after the ceremony. This is not a first marriage for either of us and we have been living together for three years already, so these traditions based on superstition really aren’t apt to us anyway. We’ll probably play Scrabble or Monopoly then veg out in front of the TV while having a glass of wine the night before the wedding just to relax and mentally prepare for everything.

Ugh, so e of these “traditions” are so silly! Luck has nothing to do with a good relationship! Either you work at it and have a loving, supportive and healthy marriage or not. Seeing each other beforehand makes no difference! Do what works for you!

Much to family’s dismay, we will spend the night before the wedding together then will have a nice breakfast together before going our separate ways.
We’ve been together 10 years and lived together almost all of that time so I couldn’t imagine it any other way…I don’t sleep well without FI!
