    We are throwing this tradition in the trash!
    We will be together the night before, we will go to bed together, wake up together, spend the morning of together and we are doing a 1st look so on the day of, we will be away from each other for about a 1-1.5 hour: when we arrive to our venue ( together of course 馃槢) till the 1st look.
    We are skipping all traditions that involve superstitions in general, I'm not superstitious and neither is my fiance. Both moms are shocked that we're not doing it because besides the superstition, it builds some excitation, anticipation etc but we said a firm NO.

    This is pretty much exactly what we're doing too! We aren't super traditional/superstitious, and we definitely didn't want to pay for two hotel rooms for the night before our wedding. We'll be apart from when I leave for the venue until our first look.

    I love the idea of having breakfast with your wedding party members that morning! Sounds like it'll be a fun way to start the day.

    Yes! I forgot the fact of paying for 2 rooms. And being together all the time will ease my nerves since I barely sleep when we're apart, even if his room was next to mine. And on the day of , being with him will make me feel more comfortable, we will be able to walk down the aisle together, something I wanted because having 100-120 pairs of eyes staring at me would make me super anxious should I walk down alone or with someone else.

    We're going to be apart, but mostly due to the fact that FH snores and I'm sure I'll have a hard time sleeping as it is 馃槀

    I also have to be up early for hair and makeup, so this way I won't be rustling around at the crack of dawn while FH tries to sleep.

    We're also planning on staying together the night before. 1) super don't want to pay for two rooms, lol, but mostly 2) I just think it'll feel better. More comfortable. Sleep better. We are also planning on getting up early and having breakfast together at a small diner around the corner. Just a quiet, nice morning together before the craziness starts. It feels like the perfect way to kick it all off. Doesn't it?

    I think we and my fianc茅 will be staying separate only because I want a full nights rest before the big day and I need to make sure I鈥檓 not tired from being up all night. I need to be refreshed. I honestly didn鈥檛 even know this was a tradition.

    Totally agree with all of this!! My fiance and I also decided to walk down the aisle together for similar reasons. Awesome that your fiance's presence is so calming and comforting for you, sounds like he's the right guy for you!

    That's so considerate of you to not want to wake him up early on the day of the wedding! That totally makes sense why you choose to be apart for that night. And I agree with you - I'm sure it won't be easy to fall asleep the night before the wedding!

    Definitely spending the night separately. Will have mimosas and breakfast in my room for the ladies the morning of prior to make-up and hair. Guys will have breakfast serves in my fianc茅's room. The fact of paying for two hotels rooms is not the biggest issue, because we are paying for grandparents room also. We will be together the night before at rehearsal and dinner. After that, not until we say I DO. I have 31 days and counting.

    Haha thanks. He's staying at our apartment, so no extra room costs, and it's closer to the church as well. There was no way I'd stay there for hair and makeup since it would be an additional task of getting the place organized the night before just for it to get trashed with all of us getting ready 馃槀

    Hadn鈥檛 even thought about it. Staying together for sure since it鈥檚 a destination wedding and the room is already breaking us. Plus, we already sleep next to each other every night.

    Yep, rented a beautiful vacation property conveniently located near the venue. We've lived together before so it's nothing new. We spend the night together all the time now but usually take separate rooms. Idk if it makes a difference or not but we're in our 40s and have been together nearly 6 years.

    We're spending the night a part, not for traditions sake, but because I kind of want a chill night before, and he'd prefer a little more party.

    I will be staying at the Hotel where we have our hotel block with my bridesmaids (one who is dedicated to snuggling me since I can't sleep in a bed alone) and he will be at his parents house having one last "basement party" with his groomsmen and other close friends.

    We stayed separately, because it was important to H. It was facilitated by the fact that my mom needed to have her hotel for two nights, so H stayed in her room and my mom stayed at our apartment with me. Like many PPs I needed to be up long before H, so that was an added bonus lol.
