    babycuddlebee:  I just know mine hates poofy ok hate is a strong word he just can’t understand how anyone would be comfortable Trying to get around in a ball gown for a day! I think they can look stunning I ended up putting a deposit down on a blush ball gown changed my mind the next day and bought a sheath dress the next week ha I was never gonna be a ballgown girl I was just railroaded into it. The minute I put on my fitted sheath dress I was like yes put away the other dresses!

    Hes a no poof guy that I know- but beyond that he doesnt know his ass from his elbow when it comes to womens fashion and I will spend 0 minutes considering if he’ll like it when I shop. If I feel beautiful- he’ll agree. Because he certainly still thinks I am when I feel a hot mess!

    babycuddlebee:  oh I definitely think it’s better to be a suprise! We weren’t even engaged when we were at the wedding with the ball gown dress I just remember him looking at the dress as the bride tried up move around saying to me god that looks like a lot of work it’s awful Big. His words were ringing in my ears when I was putting down the deposit ha ha I think tbh they’ll think we’re stunning no matter what we wear. My guy has no fashion sense Anyway I just knew myself I waany gonna to be a poofy bride. Personally I think poof can be fabulous just not on me!

    babycuddlebee:  I picked the ‘might go along with them’ option, but it’s not because I didn’t ask… it’s because he doesn’t really care. He just tells me he’ll think I’m beautiful whatever I wear… Lame. lol. I wish he’d give me some input but he’s all, ‘I’m a man and won’t even notice if you’re wearing a dress or not’. bahaha.

    I know that my guy likes mermaid style dresses.  Particularly the  Kim K. Mermaid that she wore when she married Kris.  I tried it on and liked it as well, but I want to be a princess one last time before I become a queen.  I’m sure he will love my ballgown though.

    I just know he likes sexy. I’d think he doesn’t like poofy because he usually likes me in tight clothes but I look huge on mermaid dresses or anything type, that’s why I ‘m leaning towards the A-line and a little puffy type… This actually makes me very nervous, honestly HE is the only one I really want to impress that day.

    I have no idea what kind of wedding dress he’d like, but he seems to like me an awful lot, so I picked a dress that felt like “me”

    My FI said that I’d look beautiful to him no matter what I was wearing. He honestly has no preference, but I did get something I don’t think he’ll expect. I went for a strapless mermaid, which is completely out of my comfort zone.

    My FI is pretty picky and very stylish. I asked about things he liked and didn’t like so that I could make sure I get something that he will love as much as I do. He said he likes mermaid, lace, and not bright white, which is great because those were my 3 must haves in a wedding dress! I was able to find the perfect one and I really think he will love it.

    He always envisioned a poofy flowy dress… he does not like mermaid at all and he doesnt like straight either… I took what he liked into consideration when choosing a dress… kind of… i know he likes strapless too… but i didnt like strapless on me… so it was a compromise 🙂
