Will you be sleeping without your fiancé(e) the night before the big day? Or will you two dare to be modern and sleep together?

    Neither my husband or I are superstitious. We felt it would be more hassle than it's worth to spend the night separately.

    Modern. We rented a house on the property of our venue for 2 nights so we both stayed there the night before. It really helped to calm me down and ease my nerves!

    Splitting. The vacay rental we have for the wedding party has an extra room so he will sleep there. And we will avoid seeing each other from the rehearsal dinner until I walk down the aisle 😍

    Traditional. My getting ready process starts the day before so he can not see me when that starts. We have seperate rooms in the same hotel.

    Probably traditional, just because I think it'd make us both a little more excited for the day if we spend the night before apart. I imagine I'll probably spend the night with my out of town maid of honor at least!

    Traditional. Us ladies are getting ready in my hotel early (7:45) so it would make sense to wake up and be there!! Considering I live 45 minutes away from my venue, I get extra sleep time and a moment with my daughter before the big day!

    Traditional. I have my two MOH's and Jr MOH in the room with me.

    Traditional! I plan to stay with my bridesmaids in a hotel the night before then we will start getting ready in the morning.

    We don't live together so we'll obviously be doing it traditional. I still live with my parents and will move in with him after the wedding!

    Traditional. We don't live together so that was an easy decision for us.
