    Are you guys staying together the night before the wedding or splitting up?

    I prefer to stay together, but my MOH and the best man say we should split up. We live together and sleep together every night, so I would prefer to be together. I don't sleep very well when he is away and I don't want to be tired or lonely the night before our wedding. Our parents aren't very traditional so they don't necessarily care. I want to get together with the girls and hang out, just not necessarily all night..

    If you guys are staying apart, what are your reasons. Just wondering if I am missing something.

      I think it is completely you and your FIs choice! dont let your MOH and BM make the decision for you. I know i wouldnt sleep apart because we already live together and I have trouble sleeping alone now.
      It is totally your choice :)

        My FI and I have lived together for a little more that three years, so he has seen me looking my best and worst. I plan on staying apart because I think that it will heighten the anticipation of seeing me for the first time that day as I prepare to become his wife.

          My husband I and I lived together for three years and have a child together so really!! LOL. He got up early the day of the wedding and got dressed in his best man's suite so we did not see each other until the wedding. Do what is best for you!

            I think it is up to you two what you want to do. DH and I lived together before we got married but decided not to stay together the night before the wedding. I am glad we did because I was so excited to see him and it was fun thinking what he is doing and what he is thinking.

              I think I want to stay apart just to be traditional. I like the whole thing about being surprised when we see each other at the ceremony site. I'm just a romantic like that, though.

                DH and I live together (and are already married legally). We are going to stay together the night before, then kiss good-bye in the morning (ceremony is at 5:30). It's your choice !

                  FI and I are staying together the night before too. We are also kissing goodbye in the morning then won't see each other again until our ceremony at 6P. We've talked about sleeping separately but we plan on making our last night as "single" as special as our first night as "married."

                    I don't think there's a right or wrong answer here. We have been together for 8 years, 2.5 of those we've lived together. I honestly don't think I would be able to sleep if we were to split up for the night! We are in no way romantic, so we'll be staying together the night before. The way I look at it is, we want to be together every night, so what's the big deal! Do whatever you feel is right for you!

                      My DH and I stayed together the night before our wedding, in fact we got up early, got a couple massage and then walked the beach for a little bit. It was such a great way for us to relax and just enjoy a private moment together. After the walk on the beach he headed to one room to get ready and I went back to our room to get ready.

                      I think you should do whatever it is that makes you both comfortable, weddings can bring on so many emotions, so do what will makes you guys happy.
