    Cancel. We stayed in a hotel as the wedding was out of town. Plus we lived together before we married. Sleeping apart would have caused us to be more restless.

    Keep! Mostly because it worked out that he got ready at his parents' and I got ready at my parents' the next day!

    The night before, we plan to hang out with our bridal and grooms party at the venue. Then, we have separate rooms for both. It's more to do with how early we may have to wake up to get ready (specifically the girls).

    Cancel (probably). We have rented the honeymoon suite for the night before (we get it free the night of) and another room for my children. I'd much rather be comfortable sleeping beside my best friend rather than uncomfortable with teens and young adults kicking me all night. Not to mention those party animals - I'd probably end up having zero sleep.

    Keeping! Because we're all (families and wedding party) going to be at a hotel the night before so it's easy to be in separate rooms. We've lived together for 6+ years so it also seems like a fun change-up to be apart right before the big day!

    Keep! We live out of town, but we're getting married in my hometown. I'm sleeping at my parent's place and he's sleeping at an Airbnb.

    Keep! We got two separate Airbnbs for both sides of the wedding party so that each side has their own space where they can get ready.

    Keep the tradition!Smiley kiss

    Sleeping at my maid of honors place and getting ready with my bridal party with fruits and champagne will be awesome. The photographer will get great pictures of me and the girls and the same on my fiance side. Will be nice to see this after the wedding.

    It will be more special this way.

    Keeping. We didn’t live together before marriage so this was easy to do!

    Keeping! We aren't living together until after we're married. I think it'll be fun to spend one more night with my best girl friends.

    Most couples living together seem to sleep together and get ready with their wedding parties separately on the day.

    Gay couples help each other get ready or separately depending on the couples choice.

    Cancel. We initially were going to keep it, but when the time came, it was just too stressful for one of us to spend the night before somewhere else.
