    Nope I didn’t show him. It was really hard because I was so excited after each alterations appointment. Luckily he was very strict about not seeing it because I probably would have given in if he had asked to see it.

    I took him dress shopping with me, but it was still be a surprise on our wedding day because I don’t wear make-up or do my hair normally.

    He was the one who gave me the photo that inspired my dress so needless to say, he already had an idea of what it will look like.

    I don’t have any qualms about showing him my dress to get his opinion since he won’t see the complete look until the wedding day. I really don’t he cares whether or not he sees it beforehand.

    Yes, I showed him. I was planning not to, but then my dress arrived (ordered from JCrew) and I was feeling so much doubt that I caved in and asked him that evening. We both agreed that the dress wasn’t perfect, so we sent it back and after that it felt strange not to include him in the following discussion. So he came with me to David’s Bridal the day I found my dress and he later came with me to pick it up. It’s nothing I regret, it was just fun to have him with me for the experience!

    My dress is about the only thing I haven’t shared with SO. It’s more important to me for her to get the whole first look. I’m not sure why. Maybe because I don’t dress up a lot, never really do my hair and I kind of want to have the whole package for her. I dunno. Def not letting her see the dress before hand.

    @MsGinkgo:  not really. He is VERY traditional on some things (I’d take him name, he WILL wear a ring all the time, etc). So it wasn’t too shocking to me 🙂

    @MsGinkgo:  yeah it surprised me! One day I was trying it on (for fun) and I poked my head out and asked if he wanted to see it and he told me we should stick to tradition and I should surprise him. I was shocked because DH is not a traditional guy. I’m super happy he stuck to it though because I think I might have regretted it if he did see it.

    He will not see the dress before the wedding.  I wore a white dress for my shower and was all made up and his reaction to that was priceless, so I can’t even imagine how awesome it’ll be the day we get married. 🙂

    @MsGinkgo:  He’s going dress shopping with me and will have final say over which one I choose so I’d have to say, YES!

    @MsGinkgo:  I wouldn’t have minded, but my FH has asked that I don’t show him. Which is fair enough, but it’s kinda killing me a little to keep it secret!

    I wanted him to see it, so he did. he’s only seen it on a mannequin and not on me, so he will still be really surprised come June 13. It’s the best of both worlds… I also think he’s already forgotten what it looks like hehe.

    No. I’m not super traditional about it though so if he happened to see it I wouldn’t be heart broken.

    I have been tempted to show him pics of it a couple of times.
