Is your original dress already purchased?

1. Is it already purchased?

2. Do you REALLY think he’ll remember in 10 months?

I’ll just say this. If you LOVE your dress, I don’t know that you’ll be able to beat it or even want to. Another thing is, I know my Fiance wouldn’t remember my dress even if I showed it to him 6 months out, much less 10. I think if I showed it to him NOW (at 2 months out) he’d remember more, but after a while they forget. Did he make a big deal out of it?

Honestly, if he saw the picture you posted, he probably still doesn’t know which it is since there’s two in that picture, and men aren’t particularly detail oriented about that kind of stuff anyway.  If you love the dress, I would just stick with it and figure he’ll forget by the time the wedding rolls around.

I still say do what you want to do. If you LOVE the pink dress…keep it. If you just love the dress and not the color? Change it to white. If you weren’t 100% sold anyways, then by all means look some more!

GET YOUR ORIGINAL DRESS! seriously…if that’s what you love…go with it. You’ll have more regrets about getting a second choice dress than about him seeing it. Also…he’s a guy…seeing that picture did not leave an imprint, I’m almost positive. If you REALLY think he knows, ask him if he’s seen your dress, if he says, ‘yes’ ask him to describe it. My almost hubby saw a picture of my dress and it didn’t even register to him.

It sounds to me that he’s not expecting you to wear pink since he thought the dress was your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. Get the dress in white or chose something else that is similar if your that worried about it. Men dont remember details. I would get the dress you want and not worry about it. Lesson learnt dont leave wedding stuff laying around, password protect your wedding file and images.

I’m pale and going with ivory – white  makes me look, well, whiter. Blush is very pretty though, I’m sure he’ll barely remember so go with what YOU love!

Even if he does realise that that is the wedding dress, and even if he does remember it down to the stitching detail, do you really think he’ll find you any less breathtaking when you’re walking down that aisle? He’s marrying YOU, not your dress! Don’t worry, if that’s the dress you love, and you feel like a princess in it, just do it!

ps, it’s a stunner of a dress, btw!

I think you should keep the dress. My sister showed her wedding dress to her future husband at the time, and in less than seven months she decided to switch the dress to a completely different one– different fabric and style– and he didn’t even notice.

My Fiance has seen me in my dress.  I was shopping with my Mum, and he was picking me up after work, and walked in early.  The assistants made a big deal about it.

But my opinion was “meh, big deal”

1. He wont remember the detail

2. He hasn’t seen me all hotted up with my hair done, make up on looking like a zillion dollars!!!

If you love the dress, keep it!  If you are only so so about the dress and not sure about the pink, then maybe this is your excuse to change you mind.  So do whats right for you.

(BTW I am so jealous you have a pink dress, I tried finding one here in Aus, and nobody had them, they had Red, Blue, Black, but not Pink.  Sucks to be me!!)
