    Hell no!

    He’s really inolved in the planning but the dress is staying a surprise.

    However, that’s a tradition thing and so I don’t think it’s a problem if it doesn’t matter to you.

    He had a general idea of the style but he definitely never saw a pic of it on me.

    I’m not showing him the dress – not really because of tradition, but because I want to see the look on his face when he sees me. I want it to be a surprise (hopefully a good one)

    We’re picking out a dress together, so obviously he’ll see it before hand.  He’s really helpful and supportive.  Could not possibly ask for a better dress shopping buddy.

    My fiance has been incredibly involved in this entire planning process … But my dress and accessories were my thing.

    I really want him to be surprised when he sees me on our wedding day (and hopefully it will be a good surprise!).

    I told him the general shape and that it has embroidery and beading, but that’s all he’s getting =)

    I showed him a slew of pictures of the dresses I tried on and asked him which one he liked most. He liked the one I got most.

    Hell no!!! 

    But I did see him in his suit. Weird huh? I went with him to pick out his out fit. He’s not really been a big part of planning the wedding because he has no idea what to do or how to go about it. So how I included him was i would pick options and he would pick between them. He also picked the Food. He picked the ceremony style, and if we would do our onw vows or not. That way he has a say in things he’d actually care about but, I’d do all the little things.

    Haha I offered to show him the model pic but he was like “NO NO NO NO” He wanted it to be a complete surprise so we ran with that 🙂 He wouldn’t even let me show him my runner ups (model pics)

    I had my dress made for me so I showed him ictures of what it was going to look like. The finished product is now hanging in our closet so he can look at it whenever he wants. I don’t really care if he sees it because to him it’s just fabric, I’m sure if you asked him he wouldn’t be able to tell you the first thing about it but it will look completely different and take on a whole new life when he sees me wearing it on our wedding day.

    HE was the one who showed ME a picture of the kind of dress I ended up falling in love with – so, needless to say, he has a general idea Tongue Out Wink I’m not too fussed about him knowing what my dress will look like. I’m sure I’ll know what his suit or tux will look like and that’s not a big deal. It’s not as if he’s see the whole look before we get married anyway – the dress is just one part (albeit a major one) of the whole ensemble.

    @Madelin:  I have not, but I have a friend that just got married and her FI went dress shopping with her!
