I was wondering what you girls thought about showing your Fiance a photo of your dress?
It would not be a photo of me in my dress, but a stock photo with the model. I am undecided about which dress to choose and confused at this point. At this point the most important opinion to me (other than my own) is how my Fiance would like it. I feel like if I could show him a photo of my -maybe- dress I would be able to make a solid choice about the dress I am leaning towards choosing…. Is this a mistake???

@sapphiregirl: I did this for the exact same reason. It didn’t help much because I still can’t decide. lol

Personally I want mine to be a COMPLETE surprise. I know he is going to love WHATEVER you choose!!

Ew, I’ve been wondering the same thing. Fiance definitely has an opinion about my fashion choices sometimes, (haha!) I want him to love what I wear on our day as much as I do. But I also want it to be a complete surprise. decisions decisions…..

I wanted to show my Fiance a few photos of dresses I liked to see what he liked best but he refused, He wants it to be a complete surprise until he sees me walk down the aisle.

Its up to you and what you want. I did not want my Fiance to ever see my dress. However,when watching say yes to the dress or something I would often ask for his opinion on the dresses. It helped me get an idea of what kind of style he likes best. Your Fiance will love you in whatever you decide to wear.

I haven’t shown him. I contemplated doing so, but he specifically told me he didn’t want to see it.
I’m sure you have a general idea of what your Fiance likes & dislikes anyway? I am also a firm believer of the idea that he will think you look stunning in any dress on your wedding day!

What if you show him the two dresses and a few days later show him a few more (that are not even options) just to confuse him/throw him off so he will remember a bunch of white gowns and not specific details of the first two?

I showed my Fiance 45 dresses. I showed him 5 at a time and he had to pick which one he liked best out of those five and we kept narrowing it down til it got to his favorite three. Then he pick his first, second and third favorite. He picked my gown as his second favorite. I was so flipping happy but I kept my poker face.
On the flip side my reception gown which is also a wedding gown was in those pics too and he didn’t like it but I’m sure the day of he would love it on me.
Even if he didn’t like the dress I was still going with it.

I showed my Fiance my dress inspiration pics. He told me they all looked the same to him!

He knows what style I’m generally having, as I had a mock up of what I was making on the dummy for a while. Until I decided to go buy my dress instead. I showed him a photo of the bodice beading, and that was that. I am SO wanting to show him, but restraining myself

I showed him the model pic because I was too excited not to. I did get the dress in ivory instead of white, so it will look different when he sees it the day of. We are doing a first look and pics before the ceremony so I wouldn’t have that walking down the aisle moment anyway. If you really want to show him go for it.

The only reason I wouldn’t base my decision on his opinion of which dress he liked better on the model is because it’s on the model…one could look MUCH better on you than the other…but the opposite can be true on the model.

I don’t believe in the “superstition” piece of it, but it’s a completely personal decision. I didn’t, because he knows NOTHING about fashion (oh really? Almost 30 and wearing cargo shorts?). He’ll love whatever I picked and will love me in it! I think the same is true for most of our FIs (unless they know a lot about bridal or have strong opinions!!)
Maybe you could ask him what he DOESN’T like in dresses and go off that?
