Wedding idea advice....

Recommended Posts

I do like to follow traditions, however I have an odd, but nice idea and I was wondering what everyone may think. Remember this is coming from a guy... :)

 

Tradition:

The day of the wedding the groom and the bride do not see each other until later.

 

Idea:

Stay together the whole day, and actually help each other get dressed (private time) and get ready for the big day.

 

Idea 2:

Stay with each other the whole night and then have breakfast together. Then break off to different places to get ready.

i honestly would not want my FI helping me get ready. that is a special time reserved for my female relatives and bridesmaids.

 

we are though, spending the night together in advance and having breakfast, then parting ways for the day. firstly because i hate the tradition of not spending the night before youre married together - hello, we have already been living together for over a year so its not like in the old days when you had never spent the night with your fiance. and second, i hate it because it always makes people think you are going to have sex the night before your wedding and that you would be a bad person. well, i dont think youd be a bad person for doing it, but i also think spending the night before the wedding does not mean you are going to fail to resist temptation. and third, with the price of the hotel rooms where we're getting married, it was out of the question anyway - it would've set us back another $400!

I can appreciate your attempt to make a old tradition your own. I would guess that your FI won't want to have your help getting ready? It takes the fun out of the whole walk down the aisle thing. Plus, I agree with the previous post, it's girl time. I think breakfast together in the morning is a wonderful idea!

I agree with the other ladies... I don't want my FI seeing me:

a) getting ready

B) all done up before I walk down the aisle

 

But I don't think there is anything wrong w/ having breaky together in the morning - it would be the only alone time/peace and quiet you'll have together all day most likely

You are correct and I agree with everyone so far. I just thought its was a good idea and a way to be romantic on that day. I just wish we can come to some type of compromise. sad.gif

My DH spent ALL day with me and the rest of the wedding party. WE got married at a remote location though so we all headed over in the morning and spent the day relaxin on the beach and just chit chatting. We had lunch and then split up and got ready in separate areas. So basically the day of the wedding we were only apart for about 2 hours.

 

I didn't want him to see me getting ready- I definitely wanted him to see me at the end of it all and have the "whole" picture. Plus prior to the ceremony I was such a nervous wreck. I probably looked much better after I had time to gather myself and to categorize my emotions. When I met him at the alter, I could definitely see his nervousness and his adoration. I'm happy we waited to see each other. If he would have gotten ready with me, the anticipation of seeing each other that first time would have been muted.

 

BUT I also think you should do what you want as a couple. Who cares about tradition! It's about how you envision your day!

I'm not particularly bothered but FI wants to have breakfast together then go our separate ways - he has said he is going to keep a tab on me in case i have too many cocktails and either run or turn up pissed lmfao (he may have a point!)

 

I think you do what feels right to you - i'm not traditional and he'd do my head in if he was getting ready with me because he is a total fanny but I won't be getting ready with the girls either - i'm just not that type of person

I've got breakfast with the girls and my mom and sis, and then I'll probably see him poolside. But I'm not making a big deal about it one way or the other. Definitely getting ready with the girls and my mom and sis, though.

We're probably doing the whole spending the night together, have breakfast and then "bye bye".

 

But talk to your FI and see what she wants, soem couples are NOT traditional at all. When I was trying on my dress, there was actually a girl there with her Finace helping her choose her wedding dress, my mom was in shock, but for some people, it's not a big deal. Do what will make you both the happiest!

I was originally thinking the same as you; To spend the day together and help each other get ready. I didn't really want that "girl" time with family.

 

BUT now that others have made the point. I want that moment we he see everything done; dress, hair, makeup, etc.

 

I think the only deciding factor is does she want "that moment" you see her to be when your coming down the aisle.....

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
