Night before the wedding

Emily, on 29/July/2018 at 09:53 Posted in Before the wedding
What did you do for the night before you wedding/what are you planning on doing? I’m undecided on where I want to sleep, who I want to be with etc. Any input would be helpful.

    We have our AirBnB booked for the night before and the night of the wedding. My partner is suggesting that I sleep there so I can get a good nights sleep (and him too, at our house), but I feel bad about leaving the kids with him, especially when we have to get up early that morning and setup the venue.

    But I think maybe it would be best for each of us to have a decent rest. It'll allow me to get my dress hung up, and everything setup for it to be the home base for the day!

    We are staying in a hotel the night before the wedding. All my bridesmaids will be staying in the bridal suite with me the night before and my FH is staying with my brother.

    We are going to have the rehearsal dinner the night before and then my fiance and I won't see each other until the ceremony.

    Either I will be sleeping in my MOH's room or he will be in his best man's room. As of right now we are thinking I will have our king suite for the night before and then get ready in that the day of but it may be reversed. Both our BM and MOH have king suites as well so we will all have plenty of room regardless of who sleeps where Smiley smile

    We are having a surprise wedding, so we will be prepping any last minute stuff, and taking our things that we need to our AirBnB that we are renting for the weekend. We will be using the same rental for the night of the wedding, and is close to downtown, which is only 10 minutes from our venue, and a few minutes from the salon I am going to get my hair/makeup done.

    My fiance offered to let me sleep there by myself the night before the wedding to give me some needed rest, but I would feel bad leaving him alone with the kiddos!

    We have a family supper the night before then I will be heading to the hotel with my bridesmaids for a relaxed "slumber party". My fiance will be sleeping at his parents house. We have been together for 5 years now and lived together for 2.5 years. I like the idea of not seeing each before the wedding. We will have time to miss each other and be super excited & nervous to see each other after almost 24hrs of being apart. 💕

    We're getting married on my FH's parents property. I plan on staying in a large master suite on the lower level (with a view of the lake!) It will also be used as the Bridal suite the next day. I'm looking forward to a solo night where as an introvert I can clear my mind and recharge after all the stress of planning!

    I plan on staying at our hotel the night before and having a sleepover with my cousin and god daughter or maybe even alone. I think a peaceful night before the chaos will be perfect.

    I'm going to book the "honeymoon" suite we get for the night of, for myself the night before so that I have a cushy, cozy place to sleep and distress, then I also have the whole suite for my bridal party to get ready! I'm planning to head to the spa with my MOH and then have a slumber party with my mum, and maybe my FMIL and MOH, still undecided there!

    My dad hosted the Welcome dinner for both families and wedding party at Mandarin near the venue. Later that night, the staff was nice to start a bonfire on the beach and had a good time with mt family.

    The feeling of the true north gave a different view for everyone.

    We are having a dinner at a local pub near the hotel that my guests are staying at (I have most people coming from out of town) and we will be staying at a suite at the hotel the night before. (my fh in one room and me and my girls in another) and we will be having a good time chatting and spending time with them all

    Rehearsal dinner the night before most likely! And then I want some alone time with just me and my FH! I'm staying at the hotel attached to the venue the night before as that's where were getting ready the next day but my FH wont stay with me! I dont want him to see me until church! We will stay together the night of our wedding in the same hotel though!
