Sleeping Separately the Night Before the Wedding - Do or Ditch?

What are your sleeping plans for the night before the wedding? Are you keeping the tradition of not seeing your soon-to-be-spouse until the wedding ceremony and sleeping separately? Or are you sharing a room and ditching that tradition?


Are you saying "I do" to sleeping separately or "let's ditch it" to this tradition?

    My mom and his mom scared him into tradition xD so we will be sleeping separately the night before.

    We stayed together the night before and I don't think our marriage is doomed because of it.

    We slept together. Didn't seem like a tradition I'd be aware of

    FH’s uncle is renting a huge house for everyone so we are planning on staying there together but we haven’t totally decided yet.

    We don't live together, so we always spend the night apart. I'll also have a lot of family staying with me, so I'll likely be sharing a room with my sister and cousin the night before.

    My wife wanted to ditch this, but I didn't, so she gave in Smiley laugh . It was fun not seeing each other until our first look!

    I'm doing it. I think it'll build up the anticipation in a fun way

    Slept together. We rented a house for us and our out of town guests to stay at the night before and after our wedding. It was nice being able to spend some extra time with them since we rarely see them.

    Definitely. We do live together but I want our first moment seeing each other walking down the isle. I'm not even doing a first look with FH. I'm doing it with my dad.

    I didn't think it was necessary but he wants to keep the tradition. He thinks it'll build the suspense, and since he doesn't ask for much, this was an easy one for me to give in to.

    Originally was going to sleep separately, but decided to stay the night together.

    Ditching. Our wedding is slightly out of town, and we're staying in the same room the night before. I think the superstition is ridiculous, and we already live together. Plus we both sleep better when we're together.

    Doing it, but only because of the sleeping arrangements with our guests.

    Ditching. We're long distance so spend the majority of our time apart anyway. Neither of us want another obstacle to being together.

    We were going to ditch it, but now I plan to spend the night at the hotel next to our venue the night before with our daughter and my mom and sisters. We will all be together to help set up in the morning and then go right into hair and makeup anyway so it makes sense.

    Leaning towards ditching it since we live together but FH is still on in the fence.

    We're doing that because we don't live together right now!

    We'll definitely be together since we sleep better when we're together. It will be nice to get one last night together "in sin" as my grandmother says, before getting hitched. I'm excited to sleep with a "married man" the night after! LOL Smiley xd Smiley xd Smiley xd
