So the night before your wedding… do you follow tradition and spend your evenings separately?
Seeing as the majority of couples now live together it seems a tradition that isn’t really necessary any more, or is it?
When G and I were planning our wedding, he wanted us to be separate the night before. Me with my anxiety issues, just wanted it to be like any other night, to feel more normal. But thinking about it, i guess spending the night before apart makes it feel more special, makes you excited to see your fiance at the end of the aisle.
G and I are not traditional in that we have a child before marriage. I think i dream of us having the evening before together as a family and perhaps even spending the morning getting ready together. What G thinks maybe is a whole different story mind due hehe!
Perhaps my vision is a little blurred by my anxiety issues. But that’s just me. Now I’m writing this, it is a nice idea to spend it alone, perhaps writing your vows or a sweet love note to your spouse to be. Or maybe just in with someone you care about, having a giggle. Maybe you will be spending it pampering yourself or reading. Maybe cracking out the wedding DVDs with your maids would be a fun way to chill out, or perhaps you are planning on doing your last bits of wedding DIY.
Or maybe have no plan and just enjoy the moment.
So are you being traditional and spending the evening apart? If you are what are you doing? Do you want a distraction in case you feel nervous? Or do you want to just relax alone? Maybe you are planning your hen do the night before, does anyone do that anymore or is it just in Eastenders hehe?
