I just picked up my wedding dress and currently have it in hanging up in our guest room. I originally had it at my fiance’s grandparents house, but the closet wasn’t tall enough and the dress was dragging on the floor. I live with my fiance and he promised he wouldn’t look at it and I believe him. To be honest, I don’t really trust leaving it at someone else’s house either. My parents, bridesmaids and sister all live on the East Coast where I’m from and I am not all that close with anyone here. Do you think it’s bad luck that I have it in our house? ***Also, anyone else paranoid about getting wrinkles in your dress?

I don’t think it’s bad luck… Mines hanging up and FI said he doesn’t want to see it until the big day so I know he won’t peak… As for wrinkles just get it steamed, it will be fine 🙂

Maybe I’m just not all that superstitious but I really don’t think it’s bad luck 🙂 I agree with the PP – get it steamed, it will be fine!

This is a cultural superstition so with that in mind, I don’t think it’s a bad thing to have it hanging in the house. I’m pretty sure that not all the people who get divorced had SOs that saw their dresses.
I had mine hanging and it wasn’t high enough and it was fine (but mine was not of a wrinkle-prone material). If you are concerned, you can pull it out before your wedding for a good steaming.

@SherbertLemony: Do most people get their dresses steamed? My mom made it seem like it was bad for the dress or something.

I thought the bad luck would come if he saw *you* in the dress before the wedding?

@MrsDeLovely: Well in england pretty much everyone does… Bridal boutiques do it as standard, venue dressers that do your chair covers over to do any last minute steaming if you have creases from transportation ect… never heard of it being bad, maybe it depends on the material, my mum had a satin dress with lots of beading and embroidery, hers was steamed twice and was fine. Ask a bridal shop if your unsure on your particular dress
