    Only my FMIL has seen the dress I ordered. No one has seen me in my exact dress yet because I don’t have it. I don’t plan on really showing anyone after I get it, but my FSIL might ask because she’s been abroad the entire planning.

    I won my dress and it’s been blogged about…safe to say that dozens and dozens of people have seen it.

    I knew that was part of winning it, so that’s okay. 🙂

    I was indecisive about my dress so not only did I take my bridesmaids shopping with me, I also texted the picture to my sister and mom before I bought it.

    … and then the excitement took over and I later showed it to all my closest friends after a dinner party/reunion (since I moved out of state).

    I’m horrible at keeping secrets. But kudos to you for having far more self control than I.

    I bought my dress at the department store down the street from where I work, and I had to bring it with me to take to seamstress appointments… so basically my whole office has seen mine haha. Oh and my mom, FMIL and one of my MOH

    I have a picture on my phone of me in it at the shop. I’ve shown it to everyone whose asked about the dress except my FI. LOL. The way I see it, I’ll look totally different on the day of – at least I hope! – with my hair, make-up and the whole package done up. 🙂

    I was too excited about mine. I have a pic of it on my phone and have shown it to anyone who will stand still long enough for me to whip it out. Lol.

    My mom was with me when I bought it and for my final fitting, and a close friend and FMIL have also seen it during shopping trips (the friend saw me in the sample, but it fit pretty well).  For everyone else, I show them a grainy cell phone picture if they ask, but I’ve intentionally not shown anyone full-sized pics, so they can be surprised.

    Hmm…I’ve shown quite a few people my dress. My mom and sister in law were with me when I found it. Plus, I’ve shown my future mother in law, my other four bridesmaids, and both of my grandmothers. My grandmother in turn showed the picture to my aunt…but I was ok with that, lol. Also, I’ve posted it on weddingbee. haha! But I refuse to show my fiance until the big day!

    @MrsKubes13:  I’m the same way. As soon as someone asks if I got my dress yet I’m like, Yes!, and whip out my phone. LOL! My mom said she was suprised I was showing so many people before the wedding, but I am a horrible secret keeper too.

    I have shown several people. Only my fiance can’t see it. He doesn’t know anything about what it looks like.

    My bridesmaids (5) and mom are the only ones who have seen me in my dress! My mom sent pics of the dress on a mannequin to my aunts and grandma though.

    Mom, Dad, FMIL and BMs are the ones who have seen the photos of me in my dress.  I couldn’t help but share my excitement with the closest people in my life!

    I’ve pretty much shown it to anyone that’s asked, except FI lol.

    My mom, sis/BM and bff/BM were all with me when I got it, and mom & sis took pics. I downloaded them all as soon as we got back to their house and uploaded them to my photobucket. It’s readily available on my iPhone, and if someone asks if I have pics, I show them. I’m bad at keeping secrets haha.
