So ladies do you are your Fiance watch Say Yes to the Dress together? Love the show and think it is cute to watch the show together….mmmmhmmmm Yeah well so DID I….until he saw my dress on the show!!!
Back story…my mom and sister just flew in to visit and we just bought my dress and Said Yes to the Dress on this past Friday and were so excited. My dress is Adorae by Sottero and Midgley and was happy to finally have found the one. Well all four us sit down to watch Say Yes to the Dress and then all of a sudden in the first 5 mins of the show a bride comes out in MY DRESS….the Adorae that we just bought a few hours ago. And us 3 girls just die. They start with the giggles and then laughing and the glaring looks and no one can keep a straight face. My Fiance then says I just saw your dress didn’t I. Us nooonoooo not at all. It was a dress that I tried on and was a top contender, but it wasn’t the one. He was like yeah right.
So that night while laying in bed he says I know I saw your dress you all are terrible actresses. But it doesn’t matter I saw it for 5 seconds and wasn’t paying attention. And besides I didn’t see you in the dress and that is what is important to me. And no matter which dress you picked I am marrying you and you will be beautiful….yes, insert the awwwwww moment here. But then he did say he was wondering if while watching this show before this what would be the chances of ever seeing “my dress” and then that night of all nights so he said it was fate and I choose the right one.
Moral of the story…..BE CAREFUL and TRED LIGHTLY when watching Say Yes with FI….because you never know!!! LOL 😉

Oh jeez, I have come close to doing that while watching the show too! At least for similar styles.
Also good idea to be careful when scrolling through previous posts when you’ve forgotten you’ve posted you in your dress on WB! I was showing my Fiance something the other day and completely forgot about it and panicked slamming the laptop closed lol. He said he just saw a flash of white, but still OMG lol.
It’s a tough secret to keep! 🙂

I showed Fiance pictures of me in my dress after I decided on it. I know other brides think its a huge deal for their grooms to not see the dress before the wedding but I could care less. I wanted to make sure he thought it looked as good on me as I did. Besides, he’s a man and our wedding is still 7 months away. There’s not a chance in hell he’s going to remember what it looks like. Infact, I guarantee he’s already forgotten and it’s only been a week.

what a craazyyy coincidence! at least he admitted it to you and in all likelihood will completely forget it by the time you get married. i’m pretty sure my FH saw my dress and me in it when I asked him to take a photo on my camera, and I think I left it in view mode (not picture mode) and of coruse the last pictures I took were of me in my dress. DOH! lucky for me he has a bad memory AND i’m kinda going to do some serious alterations to it so it won’t looke quite the same!

awww! It looks so different on every person, so it’s not the end of the world that he saw it on Say Yes to the Dress. I bet he’s still going to swoon when he sees you for the first time in your dress!

I and Fiance went to the bridal shops together all the time and he took pictures of every dress and he was the one who helped me judge dresses and almost decide on my own. When we go to finalize the buy, get measured and stuff he is gonna be there, and of course pay for it. We love doing everything together, so we never saw a problem in that he was gonna see me in my dress before the wedding. It is actually SO MUCH FUN to go dress shopping together!

How sweet is your FI?! I totally said awww in my head at the awww moment too 🙂 I agree with the pps who said that your dress will look brand new and uniquely different on you and he won’t even remember what he saw on a TV screen for a few seconds when you walk down the aisle. What a crazy coincidence though!

THANKS LADIES!!! I thought you all would get a kick out of the story. I do think FI is pretty great too 😉 LOL And you are all right he won’t remember it and it wasn’t on me and each dress looks diff on each girl.
It has been so hard to keep the dress a secret. He know which style I like. And since I moved away from all my family and girlfriends just a few months ago and dont know anyone where I am living now, I considered even taking him at one point to go shopping. because he also knows what I want, etc. But then we both said would rather keep the actual dress on me a surprise till the wedding day.
But still too crazy of coincidence right as you all have said, 😉

I’ve actually shown mine a pic of my dress and I’ll tell people what it looks like in front of him…as if lace trumpet with straps means anything to him! 😛
He’ll NEVER remember what it looks like, and he’s not very good at picturing things in a different way. So I know no matter what he’ll love seeing me in my dress for the first time on our day!

Lol my Fiance saw mine too because I left the picture of the model in it open on my laptop like an idiot. I was a little put out when I found out but he forgot what it looked like about five minutres later… or at least thats what he said. He could’ve just said that to make me feel better though.

that is an adorable story and your Fiance sounds awesome! i dont thnk my Fiance would ever consciously sit down to watch that show with me!!! but my Fiance has seen my pics of me my dress! i have showed it him like a 100 times, especially when i was still deciding! lol. he doesnt care and neither do i. sometimes i think i have done it in overkill, but i know it really doesn matter, nothing will take away from the specialness of our wedding day!
