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...

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?

    We will probably be apart but not for any reason than me staying at our venue to be able to get ready there

    Funnily enough, after living together 2 1/2 years... we did!

    To be fair, DH was getting ready at his parents' place, so it made sense for him to stay there the night before. Also, we're both a little superstitious...

    Of course, by the time we got to the ceremony, I nearly ran down the aisle, because we're not used to being apart that long!

    I'm so on the fence about this, it's not even funny. I've always planned on following tradition and sleeping apart the night before the wedding, but I REALLY don't want to. I want to be in the same bed so I can at least try to get a decent night of sleep lol. FH says he would rather us sleep apart for the sake of tradition, but wouldn't be upset if I told him I didn't want to. So we've still got to figure this one out, but I think we'll spend it apart just because.

    We will be sleeping separately. Him at his parents, me at mine. If we were getting married close to our home we probably wouldn’t though.

    Ditching! I originally wanted to be separate but we already live together and don't want to spend the extra money on a hotel room for the night.

    We are staying apart and not because of tradition but I am staying at the hotel and he is staying at the house. He suggested I stay at the hotel to relax and enjoy the evening with my girls.

    We did this, but looking back I would've ditched it.

    I'm not sure. Three of my four bridesmaids live out of state, so it would be nice to get extra time with them, but I live with my FH so it may be easiest to just stay home.

    This one I think we will do or at least I know the FH wants to do this because he’s not supposed to see me the day of the wedding, but I’ll miss sleeping next to him that night 😢🥰
