Waking up with your husband to be on your wedding day

Sian, 21 of February of 2024 at 09:11 Posted on Etiquette and Advice 1 14
Has anyone spent the night before your wedding with your husband to be and woke up together and had breakfast together? Our wedding is a twilight wedding so not until 4pm and the bridal suite is outrageous. I think it would be so lovely but want to here if anyone has done it before and how you found it or if you're planning on doing the same?

    I have seen that plenty of couples do it, the not seeing each other the night before tradition is not so common now. However most of the time one of the couple will then leave at some point and go and get ready somewhere else.

    We are arriving together before our guests. We will meet and greet and introduce a few guests to each other then leave them to it whilst we have our registrar chat before our ceremony. Then we will collect our guests and head into the ceremony. We won't leave each others sides all day. This is your day, so do it your way! Xx

    Our venue is about 5 minutes from home, so we're staying at home and waking up together the morning of. Plus we have a 2 and 4 year old so makes sense. Then I go off to the venue first thing with the bridal party for hair and makeup, then husband to be and our boys arrive later in the day to get ready. We have the venue overnight on the evening of the wedding. Hope this helps x

    We planned on doing this but our ceremony is early in the day so I have to get up super early for hair and make up. So it will be easier for me to stay at the venue the night before. You go for it, you don鈥檛 have to stay away for no reason, it鈥檚 all your choice 馃グ

    We鈥檙e planning on doing this. I can鈥檛 imagine not waking up excited together. Plus we have small children so we鈥檒l al start the day together. I won鈥檛 get ready in front of him though - I want to be completely ready before we see each other, plus I want to spend that time with my mum and bridesmaids. Kids will just run between the two rooms as they want. Haven鈥檛 decided yet whether to see him for a 鈥榝irst look鈥 together in private first rather than in the ceremony.

    We are staying in the hotel together the night before the wedding - although my partner will be kicked out of the room to give room from the bridesmaid squad to get their hair done, I fully expect there will be much to-ing and fro-ing with all of the wedding party (plus some close friends helping us out) between the various rooms until it's put on the dress time!

    My partner and I feel like we will be less anxious if we can be together as much as possible, but he really doesn't want to see me in my dress until the ceremony.

    We will be staying in a hotel the night before together as we had to book an extra day so we can get ready on the day of the wedding in the hotel. I don't think he will be there on the morning of us getting ready as I will have my bridesmaids with me, so he will probably have to go somewhere else to get ready. But I think it's nice to wake up next to my fiance and have breakfast together and then just go off to get ready. Nothing wrong with that in my opinion.

    We鈥檙e getting married in the registry office with just close family at 15:00 so will spend the day getting ready together, travel together and walk in together etc. Our Wedding party is two days later and our plan is to have guests arrive an hour before for drinks etc and then to walk in together, leading my two horses, hopefully it will be dry!! 馃槵

    We've not got that far with discussing it but, our wedding will be at 3/3.30pm so I think it'll make more sense for us to be together the night before, do any last min bits, have a big breakfast out somewhere, travel to the venue together then go our separate ways to get ready. If our ceremony was much earlier in the day then I guess we'd be separate as id be up getting ready from very early but, I don't plan on arriving at the venue until around midday to get ready.

    Crypto stolen from Coinbase wallet!


    I had my Coinbase wallet wiped out in a single transaction. I didn't know what to do and couldn't get a hold of Coinbase. This transaction emptied out all my Ethereum and Bitcoin. This was not me and I needed help after losing roughly 221,000 dollars. I went to the police to file a report and I also filed a claim to the FBI but they couldn't help. I got someone who recommended "hackwest at writeme dot com", within 72 hours West was able to recover all my funds and also revealed the men behind the dirty act. I wish to let everyone know that it is possible to get your money back if you contact the right person and follow instructions.
