Arriving to the Venue Together?

Matt, on June 22, 2021 at 10:31 PM Posted in Planning 0 10
Fiancé and I are getting ready at the same location and will do a first look later in the day. Are we supposed to arrive at the venue separately or does it not matter since we’re not dressed yet?

    It completely doesn't matter. Do what works best for you. Even if you were dressed up, as long as you were OK with it, it wouldn't be an issue.

    It’s really personal preference. It’s all just superstition about not seeing each other before the wedding, so if you guys don’t care about that stuff then by all means car pool together! We still haven’t decided what we’re doing about that yet.

    Doesn’t matter. FH and I are staying together the night before the wedding, getting dressed in separate hotel suites and then we’re doing a first look. So seeing each other that day is totally fine and doesn’t change anything.

    If you are observing the tradition, it is to not see the bride dressed yet in her bridal finery. A lot of people do not care about the tradition ( like us) and others stay together the night before, then part and do not get together until first look.

    It’s your day so the two of you should do whatever makes you comfortable.

    I don't think it matters, just do what works for you. I need to start getting ready at 7:30 with my girls and I'm staying in a hotel with one of my bridesmaids. So I will probably get there before my husband. He really doesn't need to start getting ready until 8:30-9.

    If I was in ur situation I would arrive together. FH and I will be waking up together, getting ready at my house then going to our ceremony location where I will put my dress on. He will fully get dressed at our house.
