I had my fiance pick between three dresses.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I needed help/input.  So yup he definitely knows what it looks like.  I probably won’t show it to him in person though and not on me.

FI saw the picture of my dress on the Kenneth Pool model.  I don’t care though.  He won’t even remember what it looked like when he sees it on me and that picture was a different color as well.

Er, I meant to imply that the dress looks fairly different in person and more so on me so I’m secure in feeling that there will be an element of surprise.

lol! i have been so afraid that my FI would see my dress somehow because i put pictures of it on my laptop for the bee! i think if he did come across it he would never actually tell me he saw it and just act surprised the day of. one time though he saw a dress in a magazine and commented on how ugly it was and i had to lay down the law and tell him he was NOT allowed to make comments about any dresses in front of me because what if it ended up looking just like my actual dress??

your fiance sounds adorable. hey – the good news is he likes it!!! i wouldn’t worry too much because you know this is the case, so you have absolutely nothing to fear come the day of and can be so content knowing he’ll think you’re a stunner.

i am petrified of my fiance not liking mine and would ask his input were it not for the fact that he is dead set on being surprised. he likes very simple attire and i’m into more fashion-y stuff, so i am worried! but my hope is that the whole me-in-a-big-dress thing will override any critique ๐Ÿ™‚

Nope. I won’t let him see before the wedding. If my FI did what yours had done I would be sad, too! I did offer to let him see the dress I’m not wearing anymore, but he said no since he’s afraid it would still be bad luck.

Well, if he’s a nosy bugger, it serves him right. Just remind him that he ruined the surprise for himself! Mine didn’t see my dress and told me he liked other styles much more–princessy, poofy styles that didn’t look good on me. I kept showing him ugly dresses and being like, “I got something like this” just to mess with him.

I really would not be worried about it.  The dress will look completely different on you than the stick model that is on the website!

haha….this sounds just like my FI! I haven’t picked out a dress yet but I’m sure that when I do he’ll search high and low to find a picture of it. He is TERRIBLE at surprises. He said he had a whole awesome proposal planned out that involved us getting all dressed up and going out to a fancy dinner our 3rd evening vacationing at the beach. And then he was going to take me down to the water afterwards and propose at sunset. Well, he was so excited that he proposed the first night, in the hotel room, at like 12:30am. He wanted to call our family and friends right then to tell them I said yes, but I had to remind him that because he was too excited to wait, no one was awake for us to tell! It’s so him, which is why I still loved it.

I have already told my FI to stay away from the Hive because there is a picture of my dress.  I hope he has.

I took my fiance dress shopping with me.  He said he wanted to come along, and honestly, with the amount of money the dress cost I didn’t see any reason why he shouldn’t have a say in it since it’s our money, not just mine.  ๐Ÿ™‚  He didn’t want to come along to every single one, but the trip he came on happened to be the one where I found the dress. 

I probably wouldn’t have gotten the one I did without his encouragement even, because while I loved how it looked it was at the upper end of the budget.  But he loves how I look in it and wants me to wear it on the anniversaries and the whole nine yards, which means he’s also understanding that with alterations it’s going to go above the original $$ amount we had budgeted.

haha aw thats kinda cute…my FI is actually pretty involved with my dress and picking it out. Although once I decided on one without asking him about it first I was so excited that I am hiding it from him bc I was to surprise him but I def dnt think its a biggie and huge plus…he likes it!!
