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

    We'll be separate. I feel like it would make seeing each other the day of the wedding even more exciting.

    Ditching. I don't always sleep well when I'm not in my own bed and I figure I'll be a little amped up the night before anyway. So it might be better if we stay together so I can get a good night's sleep.

    This hasn't been decided yet. My bridesmaids want to get a place the night before so it might happen but no official plans have been made yet.

    We were going to sleep separately, but then I figured, why? We'll probably sleep together, then separate in the morning to get ready.

    We're definitely sleeping together the night before the wedding. Not only do we want to, but logistically it would work a lot better

    Yes we are definitely having separate rooms. We are having a destination wedding and I guess FH will stay with his brother, cousin or best man. Anybody but me. Lol

    Ditch! I want a good night's sleep before the wedding and I know if I don't have FH next to me, I'll just be all nervous and won't sleep. He's great at keeping me calm when I'm nervous or anxious.

    We are saying "i do" to that tradition. Smiley smile I think it will add a little more excitement for us especially because we live together now so it would be something a little different than usual. Smiley smile

    We are sleeping the night before apart. In separate hotel rooms (we are getting married in Maui.) we’ll still text and chat of course. Smiley smile
