Im about to be a three dress bride 🙁 I currently have two dresses, and last night FH and I were scrolling on the “Brides post your dress pic” and he was making comments on styles he liked and disliked.. My dress comes up and I dont say a thing cause I dont want him to know that he just saw my dress, and he said, “that dress is alright… i guess”
Ouch.. my heart sank 🙁 He likes the ballgown type dresses, and as beautiful as they are, it isnt my style. I think he also likes the dresses that are more fuller at the bottom. I have the Adorae and the Brianna, both of which are very similiar to one another. So if he didnt think much of the Adorae, he probably wont like the Brianna either.
I’m soo worried of disappointing him on our wedding day. Maybe I should buy a gown that seems more his taste, and sell the other two.. What do you think?

@jeye7161: All that matters is that you look amazing and feel beautiful. He will like it if you are happy.

I think that he will love you and the way you look no matter what you wear. If one of those dresses is your dream dress, I think you should wear it anyway. It won’t look anything like the one he saw.

At least he didn’t come out and say he hated it! He said it was alright, meaning it was ok. But when he sees YOU in the dress about to become his wife, he’s going to love it and you of course. And I bet you he won’t even remember that he saw the design before. I don’t think you should go out and get a 3rd dress. This is the one you love, stay confident in that, and he WILL think you’re absolutely gorgeous on your wedding day!

Those stick figures of model never do the dresses justice. I wouldn’t even worry about it, all he will see when you come down the aisle is his beautiful glowing loving bride.

Seeing a random picture of the dress is nothing like seeing on you on your wedding day. You will look great and your fiancé will think so too!

The dress looks different depending on who is wearing it! Honestly he might not even realize it is the same dress he saw online when you wear it the day of the wedding. Especially if you have shown him a lot of pictures of different dresses

maybe take him to try on dresses? have the clerk put you in a few dresses like you like and some that he likes. maybe he will see the cinderella dress isn’t you. he is only going by what the other girls look good in. he should see what you look good in too.

your dress is going to have meaning when he sees you walking down the aisle with it. right now, its just pictures on a page to him. as long as you love it, thats what matters

My FI has said he dislikes numerous things about my dress when watching episodes of Say yes to the dress. But I don’t let it get to me because I know that when he sees me walking towards him he will just be so excited and he will think I look beautiful no matter what I wear, and I guarantee you that your FI will feel the same way! Dresses look different on every person so please don’t change your dress because of this!

The dress is going to look so much different on the day of your wedding when everything comes together – hair, makeup, accessories. If you love the dress, rock it.

i was watching an episode of SYTTD last week where the girl had sent her FI a picture of the dress she bought (on a model) and he hated it, so she came back to the store with him to pick a new dress, but when she put on the original dress, he loved it on her. i’m sure your FI will love the dress on you. and at least he didn’t say he hated it!

he won’t even see your dress, really. He’ll be looking at you, not your clothes. I would be willing to bet that if you asked most grooms right after the ceremony what their bride’s dress looked like they couldn’t get much past white and whether or not it was strapless 🙂

Boys (and some girls) do not have any idea how much the styling in a photo goes towards the look of a dress–he could have been reacting to the model’s hair and make-up and gotten it scrambled into his brain as having to do wtih the dress–Plus, boys do NOT know the difference between an a-line or a ball-gown. They just see “full skirt” (and I did a search of your dresses on the internet–if yours are the ones I saw, I think your skirt is full enough). Plus, I guarantee that if your FH found out that you bought three dresses and wore one that you weren’t crazy about just to please him, he wouldn’t be happy (and if he DOES expect you to do that, run, run, run)–a husband worth his salt wants YOU to be happy in what you wear.
He’s marrying you, the woman, not a dress. Thus, all he will see on the big day is gorgeous YOU wearing a white dress; not a dress with a girl in it.

He won’t be the one wearing it. You will. Rock it, and he’ll adore it.
