My FI does not get to see the dress before the wedding!  Not even a picture of it…even the one of the model wearing it on the Mori Lee website. 

I’m going to have to keep my dress at my mom’s house after alterations…I can see where it would be hard to hide it from him while you’re making it, though!  But maybe all he’ll really see is a big white pile of fluff while it’s being worked on…and it still will be a surprise to him when he sees you walking down the aisle!

My guy has seen a picture of the dress, not me in it, and he only saw the pic once. He wanted to see it right after I got it, so I showed him 1 pic, and now he wont see it again until the wedding. Legally we are already married anyway (but no one knows) so the whole “bad luck” thing doesnt really apply to us.

I’m a pretty traditional bride when it comes to all the little things like not seeing him before the ceremony and so on but we learned real quick while planning our wedding that sometimes, you have to make your own traditions and do what works for you.

My FI saw me in my gown and the whole shebang at the bridal salon and we decided to do this because he was deploying for a year and it just meant a lot to both of us. We probably would not have done it otherwise because to me as the bride, not until I’m walking down the aisle on Daddy’s arm! I mean, it’s THE dress lol. But things change and we dont regret a bit, it was actually a really special moment for us.

You just have to do what yall feel is right.

My FI went with me to the store to pick out the dress and has seen me in it on a couple of occasions. For me the whole superstition about how it is bad luck is bologna. We had really different opinions on what type of dress I should wear and I really wanted him to love what he saw me in soooo… I brought him with me. It worked for us and I am glad we did it.

My FI bought my dress with me! So yes, he saw it. It will look very different, however, when it isn’t the sample that is a million times too big, and because he is a normal guy, he probably has forgotten how it looks already. I’m not too worried about it.

We did a first look but my husband didn’t see my dress before the wedding day.  There was still a wow factor!

My fiance and I are truly planning our wedding together, and we were planning on loose/romantic/eclectic for our outdoor event.  My dress (I thought) would be flowy and romantic to compliment this theme.  HOWEVER, the dress I just can’t tear myself away from is structured and sophisticated (still romantic), and I feel the design of our wedding is going to have to be adjusted because of the dress.  So I think he’s going to have to see it. 

In addition to that, the dress is at the very high side of my budget, and I’m a little nervous about “pulling the trigger.”  It’s a huge decision and I would feel better knowing I have his support.

My FI and I have planned our day together, to every last intricate detail. Including the dress. He has seen the dress, just not me in it, nor will he till our day 🙂
