OK…Since My Polls no longer work, here is a manual version 🙂
Did you keep your Dress a secret from your FI before your wedding?
1. Yes, It was a piece of cake!
2. Yes, but it was difficult
3. Sort of, my FI had a pretty good idea of the look/style that I would be going for…
4. Sort of, my I showed my FI a pic of something similar to guage his/her opinion
5. No, my FI went shopping with me and helped with my choice
6. No, I let my FI see the dress or a photo of it before our wedding
Hello Lovely Bees!! Within the last couple of days, I’ve found two dresses that I will be wearing for my wedding ceremony and reception. I only visited two stores, and actually chose the very first gown that I tried on at both places. I always knew that I would be the bride that wouldn’t spend a ton of money on a one day dress, and that i would feel comfortable and beautiful in just about anything (especially with the right hair, make-up, and jewelry!!!). So once I chose something I felt pretty solid about my choices…
That is until I got home!!!! I read many thread about brides second-guessing their dress CHOICES…what I didn’t expect was the dress anxiety that flared up regarding FI!!!! Questions like “Will my FI like it?”, “What if my FI DOESN”T like it?!” and worst of all “What if my FI HATES it?!” started floating around my head and driving me NUTS!!! I know that my FI would think that I’m beautiful even if I walked down the aisle dirty, barefoot, and in a potato sack…but I still couldn’t help wondering about my SO’s opinion. My wedding also isn’t for another year and a half, so keeping something so exciting from my SO proved to be a difficult task!!! We share everything, and are truly best friends….so I actually broke down and showed my FI a similar dress to ease my nerves!!! There is absolutely no way that I would’ve been able to not get some sort of feedback…especially over such a long period of time! This made me wonder if anyone else has had a similar experience 🙂
Have other bees experienced dress anxiety related to wanting to know their SO’s opinion? Has anyone else broken down and shown their FI their dress? Did anyone want their FI involved in their dress decision for this reason? For the Bees that manged to stay strong and keep their choice a secret, how did you manage it?
Please share your personal experiences or anything else related! I’m curious!!!
