If the groom's family is covering the cost of the wedding or part of the wedding, they may be asked to pay for the best man's room as well. The groom and/or his family also is traditionally obligated to pay for the hotel rooms of his entire half of the wedding party, not only the best man.
- Flirt with each other during the wedding.
- Fill your room with fragrance.
- Let him carry you across the threshold.
- Set the night to music.
- Slip into something sexy.
- Make a love list.
- Feed each other.
The big decision lots of couples are asking themselves is whether to spend it together or stick to tradition and sleep apart. It really is entirely up to you. There isn't a rule that says you have to but here's what's most important: that you relax. You'll want to rest up so you're totally prepared for your wedding.
While recent studies show that over 45% of couples choose to do a first look before the wedding ceremony (foregoing the superstition that it's “bad luck” to see each other), most still like the idea of sleeping apart the night before as a fun way to build up the excitement to saying “I Do!”
Many brides opt to let their fiance stay at home while turning their last night into a girl's night, staying at a hotel with their maid of honor or with all of their bridesmaids (whose job it is to make sure that after all the gossip and giggling, you catch some serious z's).
