    dreams does include it in the package, but we're not all that traditional so I think we'll just stay together.

    that is so great they include that. We threw tradition out the window when we moved into together and then moved across the country together. We are actually breaking a law in VA by living together, so for me not seeing each other that night and the whole day of is just to build up the excitement, plus it will be a good time to spend the day with my family and best friends since I don't get to see them that often.
    Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

      Yeah, that's pretty much how it was for us too. We already lived together before the wedding so it actually felt kind of crazy to not be together that night. But it did contribute to the "excitement factor" like Christine said. And that was fun. Also, it was kind of cool to stay up that night hanging out w/ my mom and sisters and then waking up and having a big family breakfast in the morning before all the craziness of getting ready started. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would!

      Now if you want to hear something REALLY crazy. . .I actually know a couple who didn't. . . ummmm. . .spend any "alone time" (wink wink) together for a MONTH before the wedding!!

      I never really understood the reasoning behind it - although it was a decision they made together and I think a big part of it was that they wanted to really enjoy anticipating each other. . .at least that's what I got out of what she told me. Personally there's no way I could do that. But to each her own I guess!

        Rachelle, I had a friend who did the same, but they didn't live together, so that whole month thing, was probrably not as hard as if they had.

        I wonder how all you girls are planning on doing this. I don't want to share a room with FI before the wedding but I know it will be a mess to share a room with some of my BM's (because there is only one single BM). I'm sure I'll be able to sort this out, I'm not sure how to go about it. Most of the GM are single so they are actually planning on getting a suite and Hans is planning on rooming with them untill the WD.

          That would be cool if your FI could room w/ the GM boys before the wedding. . .that way you wouldn't have to book an additional room. Then you could just stay in your own room I guess, until after the wedding. I imagine wherever you stay would kind of be "wedding headquarters" anyway, depending on how much stuff you're bringing down w/ you. (gifts, favors, decorations etc.) Also, if he stays in a different room you can have your wedding dress with you and won't have to worry about him seeing it!

            You're right! My parents are thinking of getting a suite, but I really do not want to stay with them even if I get a seperate room with in the suite! But who knows.. we have more than a year to go..

              We won't be booking an additional room for the night before. Jared will be staying with his brother(single) the night before. So i think I get the room all to myself! Although I don't know if I want to be all by myself the night before. I may invite my BM's to spend the night.... we'll see. That could be crazy and I will need my beauty rest. LOL

                Ooh, Melissa I like that... having the BMs spend the night. I'm sure we'd all act like 13 year old girls at a slumber party with all of the excitement though!!

                  My FI and I will stay together the night before. I think I would be too nervous to be alone. Plus we already live together so I can't imagine a night apart especially on the eve of our wedding. After we wake up we will go our separate ways and see eachother again before the ceremony in a special first meeting so we can talk and then take pics.
