Are you sharing a room with FI night before the wedding?

Recommended Posts

I'm curious what everyone is doing the night before the wedding....tradition says you should not see your FI the day of the wedding and i think usually the bride/groom sleep separately that night. I like this idea...but being at a resort makes this a little more challenging.

Would enjoy hearing if others are doing this, and if so, logistically...how? Is your FI staying with someone else, or are you? Will you make plans to hang out in different parts of the hotel the day of the wedding, etc.

 

Thanks

Since I'm not big on tradition we will probably spend the night together and have breakfast together and then after that part ways.

We are doing a family photo session/engagement session the morning of the wedding, so we will probably have a big slumber party with our son and all have breakfast together to get ready for our photo session.

We didn't opt for the traditional route...we spent the night together and parted ways the next day around noon...

We are not going to share our room the night before the wedding. I think he will go sleep with his parents or something. I am not really sure where is going to sleep. LOL!

Well, I assumed that Fi and I would still share our room and part ways later the next day but he has just informed me otherwise. He feels that we should fall tradition/superstition (we both have divorced parents and he's not into taking any chances).

 

I then informed him that I would be fine with that, but that means I am getting our suite that night and he can find another location to bed down. wink.gif

We are staying in our room together, going to workout with friends and then breakfast and then will not see eachother until the ceremony.

 

we discussed it and felt like we have been living together for over 3.5 yrs and are used to sleeping together - we don't sleep as well apart and why get a messed up night's sleep the night before our wedding KWIM?

Yes! We are sharing a room and having wild and crazy sex the night before we say "I-do" Sorry I just had to put that out there LOL! But I'll be doing "girl stuff" the day of the wedding, and he'll be doing "guy stuff". Then, we're having most of our pictures done BEFORE the ceremony, so we can capture "the first time we see eachother" as bride and groom in pictures! It will be incredibly special! cheesy.gif

I've decided to kick mine out...not for tradition, but to bond with my girls! We're taking the honeymoon suite and doing a big slumber party. My girlfriends and family are spread out across the country so we need to catch up! My bridesmaids will get their gift that night which will be robes and we'll do a fun spa-night slumber party, maybe get some cots brought in so people have somewhere to sleep. FI can take one of the girl's empty room or crash in one of his guy's room. FI and I will probably get together for breakfast and then part ways.

Our resort provides a complimentary room for the groom the night before. I think we will opt out of it though. We aren't that big on superstition and we really want to spend that night together. We will probably order room service then part ways after breakfast. I think he said something about catching the sunrise together but we will see how much sleep we get!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
