I haven’t let my fiance see my dress, and I don’t think he’s even seen any pictures. (I hope not at least!)
But I have told him a lot about it – especially when I was going through my second thoughts phase. 🙂
He knows it is "blush" color because this came up when talking about the guys’ tuxes. And I think he knows it is strapless since I have been so careful about tan lines. And he knows it is "a lot more dress" than I had originally thought. Oh and I think he knows it’s not a mermaid dress since I commented about someone’s that I could never wear something like that.
If he hasn’t seen your dress, how much have you told him about it?

Not much. All I’ve told him is the fact that I have now purchased a 2nd dress b/c I felt like my first one, while beautiful, just didn’t fit my personality!
He surprisingly did not complain at all about this 2nd major purchase; I was very surprised at how supportive he was!

I kept telling him it was crazy—big straps, or a v-neck or big huge skirt, etc. Basically anything that wasn’t my dress at all.
In the end, I Just told him not to worry it’s nothing crazy =]

I told him it is "white and bridal-y"

I’ve actually shown him pix of top contenders and me in them. I’d rather have his opinion than some of my girls. I think I might just start taking him along. I don’t think it’s bad luck, and the dress will look way different anyway bc it will have to be super altered and I won’t have all my hair and make up magic done. Besides, we’re already married, so I think we’ll be fine. He’s petty excited excited about the dress too, bc he said his friends will be jealous bc I’m hot!! Gotta love that!

I’ve told him:
-That it’s ivory, which he understands to be "a kind of white"
-That I’m wearing a hoopskirt with it (ballgown brides – consider wearing one, it helps with the heat/sweat factors – now I understand why they wore them in the old South!)
-That it has a lot more beading than I originally planned on
And sometimes I tell him that it’s fuschia, or has a giant butt bow, or that I’m wearing elbow-length gloves or that the neckline plunges to below the belly button, or something crazy like that.

He knows it is Ivory and not strapless and I think that’s it!

- Wedding: October 2009 - Church Ceremony/Reception at The Waterford House
He knows it’s the second dress I’ve bought and that it’s ivory. He’s also seen the veil.

He’s seen my shoes which are dyed to match (and doesn’t understand why I say it’s not "white white"). Mostly he just knows the things I’m anxious about–I had the straps widdened and I think it’s too boob-a-licious.
One day when I was feeling particularly anxious about it, I had him flip through an issue of Martha Stewart Weddings and asked if he could figure out which one was mine. He stoped on the right page but didn’t say anything, so he may have an idea since he made all sorts of derrogatory comments about other dresses.

I intend to tell him nothing about my dress. I want to walk down the aisle and have him be completely shocked. The one good thing is that I’m going for a style completely different than any of the brides at weddings we’ve been to, so I don’t know what he’ll be expecting! Yay!

@Miss Beagle – I would be showing off that veil too! (And I have actually – I emailed your pics to my mom and she was so impressed. 🙂 It is fabulous!

I haven’t officially purchased my dress yet, but I’m about 97.5% sure which one I will get, hehe. I have showed the Fiance a photo of it, along with photos of about 100 other dresses, so he has no clue which one I have picked. He hasn’t really asked about it… but he knows I’m looking for something strapless with a sweetheart neckline.

I told him it was floor-length purple taffeta with long, poofy sleeves and a high collar. ; )

I haven’t told him much about my dress. =) I’ve been pretty tight-lipped about it, but sometimes I slip. I think he might know that it’s going to be lace, and casual-ish, but he may have forgotten anyways. =D

I don’t have the dress yet, but I told him that if I get my way — the only thing he’ll know about it is that it’s in the white color family. 🙂 After living together, it’s hard to surprise him with cute new outfits, so I really want to blow his mind with this dress. I fully believe in the element of surprise!
