    @Katyxa:  Yes, he’s coming to choose it with me. The first look will be quite different given my hair and make-up will be done, plus all the built up emotion. I want to ensure he loves the dress and that’s the best way to do it!

    @Katyxa:  I showed my FI pictures of me in my top 5 favorite dresses prior to picking my dress. He doesn’t know which dress I ended up purchasing though. So, yes, he’s seen me in the dress, but he doesn’t know he has.

    Nope. He (along with my dad, oddly enough) went way out of the way to not know anything about my wedding dress. It made for a lovely surprise on the wedding day when my dad came up to get me so he could walk me down the aisle and then again when my husband saw me for the first time. At the alter, he whispered to me “You look beautiful.”  I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

    He went with me to the seamstress when I got it altered.  It’s just a dress.  We eloped anyway so he helped me get dressed.  No biggie.

    He isn’t allowed to see my in any wedding dresses! Especially not THE dress. I don’t even want him looking at ones I like. I want him completely blown away the day of.

    Yes. I stumbled upon my dress in a shop window while we were walking down the street, we went in and he bought it off the mannequin (80% off).  My fave pics are of him taking my pics (both our reflection in the mirror) at the dress shop. I love the “first look” on his face.  We eloped to Vegas and aren’t super traditional. Obviously.

    @Katyxa:  no no no 

    Im against the whole idea of first looks nevermind FI going shopping with the bride to be. It ruins the element of surprise.

    He didn’t see me in it and he didn’t see it or a picture of it. The first time he saw my dress was when I walked down the aisle in it. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
