YAY!!! My Divina shipped from the manufacturer today!!! Only one more week until I get to pick her up!! Too bad I’ve already lost 8lbs so the dress won’t even come close to fitting me. Oh well 🙂
On an less positive note, back when we got engaged, I fell in love with the Divina in a magazine. I also picked a few others I liked. I didn’t realize I talked about the Divina more than the others. FI also liked the trumpet/mermaid styles because he said it fit my body & personality. When I came back from dress shopping, which included ordering the Divina, I told him I fell in love with something “large & in charge” and was surprised that it was so different from what I thought I would like. BIG.FAT.LIE!!!
So knowing my dress was coming in soon, I decided to show some pictures of dresses on the bee to see if he would even recognize the dress. I showed him tons of ballgowns, mermaids/trumpets, A-lines, etc. Low & behold….My FI saw the Divina & said I bet that is just like what you got because you were so obsessed with that dress. OMG! You’re MALE!! You were supposed to forget what that dress looked like! He hasn’t seen it since July!! I told him it wasn’t my dress but he knows my fashion sense so well that I’m pretty sure he knows I’m lying.
So yeah, I’m a bit depressed 🙁 but still excited that my dress is coming in 🙂

Don’t be depress. Just look at it as he actually pays attention to what you are saying/showing him and knows you so well and therefore knows what you would like 🙂

@IUrebekah3RT: My fiance has seen a picture of my dress but I doubt he remembers what it looks like and it will look alot different when I wear it so you shouldnt worry about it!

Eh don’t be sad about it. He won’t remember the little details and even if he did, he’s never seen it on you and the day he does he is going to be absolutely BLOWN AWAY. period.

I showed the Divina to my FI in magazines as well before I had tried it on. Im sure he probably knows which one I chose but I havent showed him any more pictures of any dresses. Just dont mention it to him or show him anymore pictures and Im sure he will be surprised to see you in it on your wedding day 🙂

I agree, he hasnt seen it on you AND who cares, it’s old school anyways about them seeing the dress or you before the wedding etc. He is going to be brought to his knees when you walk down that aisle, even if you were wearing some ragged dress, because he’s about to marry his best friend! I would try to let it go, I think it’s great that he knows you so well and actually listens to you 🙂

I agree with EVERYONE above me that said he hasn’t seen it on YOU. MY FI also saw my dress. He accidentally even saw it in person when I got it in. I said it looked pretty but I personally think it looks VERY different on me that just hanging on the hanger. (hanging on the hanger, it also looks pretty 🙂 )
No worries lady! 🙂
