    I would talk to him about your concerns and explain just how much you want him there. Do you really think he’d care more about tradition and what you’re ‘supposed to do’ more than you??

    Don’t just come out and ask him. Sit down, explain what you’ve just explained here, and hopefully he’ll just want to support you. Traditional or not.

    I kind of felt the same way when I went into stores..I usually ask him opinions on clothes I buy and its odd not having his opinion this time, but just trust yourself!

    He will love whatever you pick!

    Also, I found it really hard not to tell him anything. He usually has such a big opinion about what I wear and I worried that he might not like it – but I haven’t shown him ANY photos or described ANYTHING. My mum loves it, I love it – and he will, too.

    But that feeling of wanting to tell him went away after a week or so. That said, I had a positive experience dress shopping. If you’re struggling then he should go with you to calm your nerves xx

    How about you offer a comprimise.

    Try and get him to come with you, promise to try on at least say 5 dresses and that you won’t actually buy it or tell him which one you’ll get (although if you find one you love it will probably be obvious)

    Or alternatively book two more trips, one with him and then a later one with friends.  Again don’t actually buy one when out with him so that he won’t be certain which dress you ended up going for.
