The night before the big day!

Brides/Grooms/Wives/Hisbands,


Curious to know, was it important for you to spend the night before separately and see each fresh at the wedding? Or did you keep it non traditional and stay together the night before? How important was this tradition to you?
We chose to stay together like it was just another evening lol. To be honest, it helped with my nerves to kind of try and make it a regular evening the night before, with maybe just a little extra relaxing. The morning of, before I headed out for hair and make up, we even took the dog for a nice stroll haha, this just worked for us Smiley heart

    We reserved a hotel room the night before and, of course, the night of the wedding; however, I will be staying in the room by myself the night before and my fiancé will stay with me until 10pm and then he is going to our house to stay and get ready the day of. I wanted it to be traditional; however, he reluctantly agreed.

    We are planning the bachelor/bachelorette parties the night before (it'll be low-key but still!) and then we got a big hotel room for the groomsmen and a big hotel room for the bridesmaids so each side can slumber-party-it-up!! So we will be staying apart the night before!

    We are planning on staying together the night before. We don't sleep well apart and neither of us needs to be tired for the day of!

    We are staying at home the night before. I wants things calm and normal. As we out of town guest staying at our home with us. But the next day, after him and his groomsmen are taking all of the decor to the venue while I'm off with my wedding party getting our hair and makeup done and he won't see me again until I walk down the aisle.

    We stayed together, we even had breakfast together and got a couples massage! It was really nice. We parted ways around 10:30am and didn’t see each other until 3pm at the altar.

    We plan to be separate the night before, him and the boys at the cottage and the girls and I at our place just having a girls night. I'll have lots of time with my husband, let me enjoy my last night alone. lol

    It's nice to have time to yourself to pull yourself together and let yourself feel all the emotions! I think a lot of brides look forward to the first reaction too Smiley heart

    I want the night before on my own, to put the finishing touches on vows, look at my dress, and hopefully cry myself dry so I’m not a wreck the next day 😂


    I’m really excited about the vision of us seeing one another for the first time on our wedding day when I am walking down the aisle to him. I know his reaction will be more emotional and I want that memory ❤️

    We stayed together. My husband works out of town so I didn't want to give up a night that he was home. It was also very special because when we woke up we exchanged wedding day gifts. Then he went to his moms where he was getting ready for the wedding.

    We stayed apart because it was easier for us to get ready separately and the respective bridal parties are closer to our separate locations, which made travelling together easier as well.

    My husband and I stayed apart for the night. It wasn't something that was important to us we just thought we would do it anyways.
