Yesterday two of my bridesmaids, my mom and I went to DB to just “look around” and see what styles I liked, colors, etc that would fit into my tight budget since I had NO clue! I ended up BUYING A DRESS that I feel amazing it! I’ve lost some weight recently and plan on loosing more and this ivory trumpet style, full beaded lace with sash dress made me (someone who’d rather wear sweats and tank tops all day) like a bride!
Well, I wasn’t going to show my FH and go with tradition; however, he got ahold of my camera last night when I wasn’t looking and went through all the pictures. I didn’t tell him which one I picked but his response to everything? “You looked pretty in all those dresses.” Just pretty? He didn’t like one specific one more, he just thought that they all looked “pretty”.
I’m a little bummed. I guess that I expected him to have a different response to it. I choose girly, but simple dresses to try on and I thought that he would of been blow away by some of the options…..
What do you guys think? (Keep in mind that the dress is smaller than I am….only because my chest makes me two sizes bigger than my waist and one size bigger than my hips! argh!)

Girl, I love that dress on you! Congrats on finding something that makes you feel amazing! I think it’s great on your figure, and of course will be even better once it’s tailored specifically to you. 🙂
As for your FI’s reaction, don’t even worry about it. For one thing, he saw a tiny photo on your camera. Secondly, guys know nothing about wedding dresses, so he will not even remember what he saw. When he sees you on your wedding day, along with your whole wedding day look, he is going to be amazed and think that you are stunning, not “just pretty”…I promise!

“Pretty” is guyspeak for Awesome, dude =]. Also, keep in mine he may have been a little overwhelmed by all the photos–it’s a big deal for him! You look great, though, don’t stress. Once you get all dressed up, you’ll blow him out of the water!

I think you look amazing and I agree that in guy speak pretty means amazing. My MOH told me my dress was “pretty”, but she always says things like”pretty” or “cute”. It’s just the way she talks. I’ve never heard her utter the word beautiful or amazing or gorgeous. It may be that way for your FI. Or, like my DH, he’s more wrapped up in the awesome idea that he gets to marry you! I know when my husband saw my dress during our first look he was blown away, but I honestly think it was more about the fact that we were getting married. He’d marry me if I was wearing a potato sack and I’m sure your FI is the same 🙂

Don’t forget that pictures are totally different than in person. Also, he’s a guy and they all start to look the same after awhile. When he see’s you the day of in your dress all done up he will have a totally different reaction. It is hard for him to see the detail and the best fit possible until your wearing your actual dress with your measurements.
You look amazing in your dress and he is going to be completely blown away!

He has no idea what he’s looking at 🙂 Like a PP said, he was seeing a tiny picture on a camera. When he sees you in person, glammed up, his reaction with be a million times different.
He might have just said “pretty” because he didn’t want to say he was really impressed with one dress in case it isn’t “the one” and hurt your feelings.
Don’t stress about it. Congrats on finding a dress that makes you feel like a bride!

My FH saw my dress too, and when I asked him what he thought he didn’t really have a reaction. I think that’s just how they are. I think it will be different on the big day.

I think it’s beautiful! To be honest, Mr Jag doesn’t remember anything about dresses I’ve ever shown him – I bet your man will LOVE it, especially when you’re all made up with flowers and the emotion on the big day. Your figure looks smoking hot!

@Purquez2011: Honestly when he sees you on the day of with the dress, your hair and make up done and all your look put together not to mention the fact that it will be your wedding day…he will think you look GORGEOUS!! Dont worry – guys just dont understand different looks….my husband tells me I look good in everything and it annoys me because I know its not true and sometimes you want more of a reaction in either direction! I love that dress on you though – it is so girly and delicate I love it!

Guys are just like that. You are lucky you got pretty out of him. The dress is awesome. I dont think guys care what you are wearing, they just love you no matter what.

You look beautiful! I agree with the other posters. Don’t worry about his reaction. To guys, it’s just a white dress and the real wow effect comes from everything on the wedding day, not just the dress.

I think it will be different if he sees you in person.
