Obviously, I don’t want FH to know what the dress looks like, but I was wondering how much you guys let your guys know about your wedding day look before the wedding.
I’m torn between getting his opinion of my hair and make up inspirations and wanting him to be surprised when he sees me.
(Edit: I added “Nothing” as an option as I just realized I would have no idea how many of your say nothing because it wasn’t an option! silly me…)

I’m horrible at secrets and we live together, so I’m really just only holding back the dress. He’s seen my veil and shoes and is helping me decide on my necklace. He’s seen some inspiration photos of my hair-do, but won’t see photos of the trial.
Personally, I think the elements are disparate enough that he won’t really put together the look. And really, does it matter? I value his opinion too much to not share (and he’s the only one here! I have to show someone my new things!)

He knows a little about everything I guess but he doesn’t know any details.
He knows my hair will be up and off my face – because I sweat a lot!
He knows that my dress is a princess dress – but that is it! And he knows I am wearing a veil but no details.
He knows my shoes are low hot pink heels – I don’t care if he sees them but he chose not to look at them!
Make-up I haven’t decided yet so he doesn’t know about that – but I may consult him 😉

i told him a little about my dress, just b/c it’s not traditional and i wanted him to be dressed in the same formality as me. it was a short dress, so he’d look silly in a tux. plus, people would always ask me about it in front of him. i just said it’s short and kind of like a fancy sundress. and then i would try to throw him off, we would see a hideous dress and i’d tell him that mine was like it, had puffy sleaves, had a big butt bow, was hot pink, etc.
he saw my hair and veil, b/c he met me at the hair dressers after my trial to go to dinner and the veil was still on. i don’t think it ruined anything.

he has seen my veil and my shoes, but so far not my dress, and we plan on keeping it that way.

He has seen my shoes but that will probably be about it. I don’t think I will show him much else as I want it to be a surprise!

He’ll probably see everything but the dress, just because I get too excited about these things to hide them from him 🙂

So far he’s seen everything. The dress was a little out of our budget so I didnt think I was going to get it. Once I showed him the picture he took me the next day to order it.
I’m a hairdresser so that’s going to be his biggest surprise.

He’s seen me after my hair and make-up trials. He’s seen my jewelry and my headband. He’s even seen my shoes. But the dress is a big mystery. Even when I talk about it, he gets sent away.
I think it’ll be a big surprise when he sees it all put together. But we’re doing a first look and taking pictures before the wedding, so it won’t be at the end of the aisle.

My husband had seen my jewelry (because he bought it for me), shoes, hair flower, hair and make-up. He had also seen my dress in person. He just didn’t see the final look until we did a first look on the wedding day.
With guys, it’s okay for them to see things because one, they will probably forget what it all looks like, and two, they can’t put it all together in their head anyway to get the complete picture. So I was very open about all my stuff prior to the wedding.

He knows what my shoes look like (I’ve been attempting to break them in!) and he also knows how my hair will be. That’s it! :]

he only knows the earring I will be wearing. Everything else is a secret…and mostly because he didn’t want to see ANYTHING, not even my wonderful shoes!

Mine knows that my dress is really big and girly because it is in out closet and he is not allowed to go in there and also he knows because whenever we met with some of our vendors, they would ask what my dress looked like. I am not a very good liar, so I just told them the basics.
He also knows I will be wearing a bolero and that it matches my dress perfectly, but he hasn’t seen it.
He knows about by shoes because I have been breaking them in.
He knoww that I will be wearing a veil because I made it and wouldn’t let him in the room while I was sewing it, but he doesn’t know what it looks like.
He doesn’t know about anything else though.
I am terrible with keeping secrets, so he probably knows more than he should, but I have told him not to ask me anything because I want it to be a surprise.

He’s seen my shoes and veil… but not on me.

He doesn’t want to know anything about my dress.
I showed him my shoes and jewelry and he yelled at me and said “I don’t want to know anymore!” haha so I’ve tried to be good about keeping things a secret.
I felt too pretty to take my hair out and my makeup off after my trial, so he’s seen my beauty “look” already.
