@Laurenskii:  Wow that just sucks! Try to meet him half way I guess! Even though he says so, it is not possible he hates ALL wedding dresses in the world. 

He loves you and I am sure when he sees you in a gown you love (and think he will love to), he will not be thinking about the gown but he will be amazed of how beautiful you are and how lucky he is.

Cheer up! Love always wins 😀

@Laurenskii:  have you even asked him why? I mean, would he like a ball gown for any other super classy party but not a wedding ball gown?

@Laurenskii:  I really hope you’ll find something you both love. Maybe an edgy sheath dress with a look from the 20’s

Look at evening gowns in a light colour, even white. I’m sure you could find a gorgeous dress that makes you feel like a princess but also pleases your FH. But, I’m sure that he will think you’re gorgeous regardless of what you wear. You care more about the dress than he will in the end, trust me. It’s easy for him to dismiss things you show him, he won’t have to wear it. Also, he hasn’t been dreaming about wedding dresses his entire life. Just saying.

You should just get some classification from him about why he doesnt like wedding dresses sit down with him and get him to describe what exactly he has a problem with. There are so many different types of dresses he probably just has an image in his mind.  Just take a day look around the internet together to get an idea of what he want to see you in and then you can find something that you love that would appeal and appease the both of you.

@Laurenskii:  The choice is yours what you choose to wear.  But I will say there are plenty of wedding dresses that are not puffy, fluffy, white Cinderella type.  There are also of plenty of wedding dresses that are multiple colors too.  I think the main thing is to keep your options open, find a style he generally likes (corset, trumpet, A line, abstract) and then go from there.  

My FI loves corsets….I mean loves them in a scary way.  So my dress is more of a pagent gown with a corset back and a nice slit on the side.  Perferct for our destination wedding and my sassy style.  http://www.amazon.com/Beaded-Strapless-Length-Formal-Ruffle/dp/B004HN2XH4/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1378096222&sr=8-9&keywords=pacificplex+gown

I have a similar problem. My SO thinks that wedding dresses are lame and a waste of money since you’ll only wear them once. (“They look like cupcakes.”) >.< Talk about raining on my parade!  I told him that I’m wearing a wedding gown anyway because it’ll be my only chance. 😛

Instead, he thinks that I should wear the cultural red dress (pictured below – I’m wearing my mom’s) all day long and forego the gown, because he thinks it looks nicer and he thinks I’ll wear it again. *eye roll* He doesn’t get that the red dress is as weddingy as a white gown – it’s just a novelty to him because he’s never seen one before.  I’ll change into this for the reception but there’s no way I’m wearing it all day long because I want some time in a gown!

@Laurenskii:  i think once he sees YOU in the dress and see how gorgeous you are, his perception will change.

@Daizy914:  +1. My DH said the same thing, i even showed him a dress that was very similar to mine at nordstrom and he said in a loud rude tone “Nahh, next!” But when he saw me that day, he told me it was the most beautiful I had ever been, and he swears up and down it’s TOTALLY different than the dress I showed him Nordstrom (both were modified a-line lace dresses with corsette backs and a satin belt in light gold and ivory…so…) 

Don’t worry TOO much about it, wear what you want to wear!

Have a look at The Cotton Bride dresses. They are sort of half way between a sundress and a wedding dress.

Showing your man is pointless unless he sees it on you. I literally showed my sweetie pictures of 20ish dresses I was considering (the online stock photos) he made a “blech” sound to the one I ended up choosing. Turns out I can actually clothe myself in a way that he finds appealing. No “blechs” to be heard on the wedding day! 🙂

And for the love of the flying spaghetti monster, do not bring him wedding dress shopping.
