Haven’t heard that one before. But since we already lived together, were 40’s/50’s when we married and it was my hubby’s 2nd marriage, we threw a lot of traditions out the window. We spent the night together at our DW resort and it was so fun! After our welcome dinner with guests, we went to our suite and practiced our welcome speech for our wedding & were so giddy thinking about our wedding day! Great having room service breakfast together on our wedding day before the DIY decorating began. 💕
Depends on how superstitious you are. I'm not, so FH and I are spending the night together the night before in the "bridal suite". We'll have breakfast and get pre-ready. Then he'll leave to go to the groomsmen's room to hang out, watch TV and get dressed. My mom, maids, mother in law and sister in law will come over to get ready with me. FH and I will do a 30 minute first look and then we'll do family pictures prior to the ceremony.
Our resort offers a complimentary suit for the groom the night before the wedding so we are definitely using it!!! We’re not doing it because of any beliefs but more so that we can have that anticipation feeling !!
We didn’t even discuss this. My FH asked where he was staying, he assumed my girls would be taking over the house. Lol I told him he could stay at our house and I’ll stay at the hotel close to the venue. Our venue has a bridal suite but doesn’t have an area for the grooms to get ready, so after they run errands in the morning I wanted a place for them to get ready near the venue.
We hardly spent anytime apart our wedding weekend. We slept together the night before and only parted in the late morning/afternoon for HMU, etc. I saw him before our first look too. I hadn't necessarily planned that but, honestly, with how hectic things are the day of the wedding, it didn't even phase me lol. Do what makes you feel comfortable.
My fiance and I are sleeping apart the night before our wedding, even though we have been living together for almost 4 years now. Not so much because of superstition, but because I want to surprise him as I come down the aisle.
The real reason behind the not sleeping together superstition is this "Stemming from arranged marriage, the tradition’s roots come from when couples wouldn’t meet until their wedding, with fathers tricking the grooms into thinking that the bride was more attractive than she was, forbidding them to see each other until her veil was removed. Seeing as this would usually be after the wedding ceremony, the groom would, therefore, be stuck in the arrangement". I took this from an article at Marie Claire uk.
It is up to you if you want to follow that "tradition" or not. We didn't and it didn't take away any magic from our wedding day.
We are spending the night apart. He’ll leave the rehearsal dinner and go home to sleep and get ready the next day. I’m sleeping at my dad’s house that week because I’ll be helping to prepare. He’ll drive over in the afternoon with his best man.
I haven’t heard it’s bad luck, I’ve heard he shouldn’t see you in your dress before. We already live together but me and my girls are having a girls night the night before and watching a bunch of wedding related movies. So we are sleeping apart though. I think it’s your preference. We’re not having any communication the night before through the morning of. Just to add to the suspense lol
We stayed in our apartment together the night before. That morning while I was getting ready he left to do a few last minute guy things like get the car washed. I was ready when he got back and we drove together to our wedding.
I stayed at my moms house and my husband stayed at our house. We wanted to fell like we "missed" each other the day of our wedding and it made us excited to see each other the day of. I'm sure I would have been just as excited even if we stayed together. But we liked the idea of staying apart. Plus all my friends stayed with me at my moms and he was with a friend
It's whatever you prefer. I dont believe that theres any bad luck associated with seeing or not seeing. I will be staying apart from FH the night before ours just because as PP have said I want to have more anticipation to see him since we wont see each other until I'm walking down the aisle. However, if you're perfectly comfortable seeing him the night before/morning of then go for it!
