@Fayette: Aww, at least it was an accident.

FI found my receipt, saw the #, and looked it up online. ๐Ÿ™

My FI is like yours – he wants to be surprised.  He’s seen the photo of my dress on the model, and HATES it. But he’s also seen a photo of my dress on a real bride, and just loved it.  All through this, he doesn’t know that I tried (and bought!) this dress. He still thinks that I chose Adorae (he’s willing to put money on it)!  That being said, he exclaimed in a panic when i showed him Adorae that it was my dress – so, it happens. ๐Ÿ™‚  It will be okay!

Don’t worry or panic. The dresses ALWAYS looks better on you than the hungry model wearing it. The chances are that after you told him that “no that was not the dress” he forget what it looked like and that on the wedding day he wont even remember if he saw that dress or not.

As long as he hasn’t seen it on you, it’ll be fine! He will still be surprised!

Dont worry… if hes like most guys, he probably wouldnt even recognize it if he saw a pic of it again in a magazine.  I’m sure he’ll still be surprised on the wedding day!

My Fi has seen my dress, sorta. I showed him when I was first looking at dresses and showed him several pictures of me in a different dresses.  But he doesn’t remember what it looks like.  LOL in fact several weeks ago he asked me if it had straps or not. Which it does.

Awww, I understand. My FI is the same way…and there aren’t too many blush dresses out there. He wants to be surprised, but once when I was on the boards he peeked around to see what I was doing on the interwebs. He got a glimpse and gave a little cry of horror, but I don’t think the surprise is completely ruined. Ugh :/

FI went shopping with me even though he hates shopping, and endured ALOT of rude comments from mothers of other brides about how he shouldnt be there.. poor guy. When we had found one and brought it home he said, “C’mon hunni, put on your dress and get drunk with me” hahahahahha!! He couldnt care less if I walked down that isle in jeans and a tshirt.. just as long as I’m walking down that isle! It totally depends from guy to guy these days.

Don’t worry.  He saw a PICTURE of the dress.  He didn’t see the ACTUAL dress.  

DH saw me in my actual dress before the wedding. Heck, he even helped me zip it up so he could see me in it before the wedding!

I sure wish my fiance wanted to be surprised! He has been BUGGING about finding out- he even looked through the boards here to see if I had posted my dress on any of them ๐Ÿ™ I really wish that he would just stop- because I want it to be a surprise!!!

Yeah my FI bugged me about seeing the dress SO much, that I gave in.  So I showed him the 4 final dresses, and asked him to pick his favorite and least one.  The one I bought was the one he liked the least!  He did say I’d look great in whichever one I was in, but still kind of ironic.

I can’t tell if he saw the stock pic or a pic of you in it from when you tried it on. Either way, I think your white lie is good. Also, you’re going to look entirely different on your wedding day when your hair and makeup is done and you have all the accessories, too. And I’m sure he’s going to be so blown away in the moment, he won’t even remember it from before. If he does remember, I bet it’ll be to the effect — this is so much more amazing than I remember it! ๐Ÿ™‚

I think you’ll be fine! I actually showed my FI a pic of a dress I loved before I started looking.  I didn’t think I would end up getting that dress, but i did! I asked him if he remembered the dress I showed him, and he has no idea what it looked like.  I’m sure he’ll completely forget, and even if it was a picture of you in the dress, you will have your makeup done, hair done, and have that wedding day glow when you actually wear it!
