The Night Before.....

Are you planning on sharing a room with FI and then parting ways early in the morning.... or are you staying in 2 completely separate rooms?I have been speaking to FI about this the past few weeks and he just doesn't understand why since we are "eloping" that I would like for him to stay in another room the night before. We will see each other before the ceremony but it will be a "first look" moment that our photographer is going to capture.What are you doing?

    Stayed in the same room, we were out until 3AM the night before at our meet & greet!   2 rooms wasn't in the budget. I kicked him out of the room before H&M arrived... it was about an hour or 2 while I got my hair/makeup done...(is this an option for you?) I hung with my sisters and he went to the casino to hang with his brother/dad... but my sisters left to go get ready themselves and he was there when I got dressed, he zipped me up!  lol   He was still all smiles when everything was put together.  :)

    We are going to share a room, it's just not in the budget to add another room on top of it all! But he will be gone down in the Casino, etc...while I get ready, and we will have the Bridal/Groom Rooms at the Chapel to get ready also (even though it's not a lot of time, I get 40 min, he gets 20 min), I am sure he will come dressed (He will most likely get ready with his BIL and my brother) Plus I figure we will be out most of the night before anyways.

    We've been discussing this lately too I think since we have our daughter that we will spend the night together, have breakfast together and then go our separate ways I will be getting ready in our suite and then head down to get into my gown I'm not quite sure where FI will get ready, have to think about this one

    We are being very traditional- everybody is going for drinks the night before and then we'll leave each other at about 12. I'll go back to the suite with MOH and he will stay with her husband in their room. We did this at my MOHs wedding in Dominican Republic and told the boys to go straight to bed- no staying up late drinking. Then WE couldn't sleep and were very excitable so ran round the resort, eating hotdogs and drinking cocktails and champagne. We got very told off when they found out about 3 months later and are under strict instructions not to do the same in Vegas. Yeah- whatever!!!

    We stayed together.  We stayed out the night before with our friends and on our wedding day I couldn't sleep and actually had to wake him up to kick him out!  We had our first look several hours later and it was great.

    Three words: wedding morning sex.  The ceremony isn't until 7:30 and we have a few items on the agenda beforehand, so we'll part ways after our "rehearsal" lunch as the guys and the girls split off to get ready.  We'll find someplace nice inside MB to stage a first look before we head off on the photo tour.
    This is a neglected planning bio.
    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    we're actually sleeping in separate places.  he'll be with the best man at TI and i'll be at the Wynn and either stay with MOH or MOB.  we have all this stuff to do early in the morning so i figured it'd be easier for him to hang out with the BM.

    There was no way we were sleeping in seperate places. The morning of we ordered breakfast in bed and spent some quiet time together before I had to start getting ready. He went and hung out with the guys in the casino. I hear some strangers were getting him drinks and putting bets down for him. We didn't see each other til the doors of the chapel opened.

    We stayed in the same room as well.  We were out until 4am for our meet and greet.  Then he passed out ( to much to drink) and I stayed up to set up our suite.  But waking up in the morning and breakfast in bed was the best.  But after 13 years together it would have been odd to have parted the night before.  I guess it's more of a personal thing.  We still had the "first look".

    We will be staying in separate rooms. From the time dinner ends the night before, until I walk down the aisle, we will not see eachother.

    I was actually very against sleeping together the night before, however after really thinking about it, and FI insisting we are going to spend the night together. He had a great point, why wouldnt we want to spend that time together!? We are going to separate ways at 10 am, then have a formal "first look" before the ceremony, Todd will be taking our photos at that time :)

    I just think it's so much more exciting for the first time you see each other to be the moment you begin your walk down the aisle. I loved spending my MOHs wedding morning with her and am looking forward to doing the same on my day

    Staying in the same room, but splitting up the day of to get ready, etc. No seeing eachother all dressed up until I walk down the aisle.

    We're sleeping together too. I want to have breakfast together in bed and all. I think even if we weren't getting married in Vegas we'd still spend the night together. I'll probably leave our suite at around 10is to go start getting ready with nails, hair, make-up and all and then I won't see him until I walk up the aisle.
