Word to the wise-
If you don’t want to wear a veil, don’t ask FI anything about a veil.
We were discussing what he might like to wear for our wedding, and I asked if there was any look in particular that he’d like me to go for or avoid. A veil, for instance.
Immediate yes to the veil from him. It’s the only thing he’s been decisive on.
I’m not a veil girl, and am trying to dress my look down, not up! But just went and bought one.
Bride: 100,000 Groom: 1
I can give him that… but careful with those “for instances” bees!

Haha, I agree with you completely. If you’ve already made up your mind, don’t ask his opinion!
I had the opposite thing happen to me–I made the mistake of asking FI what he thought about veils (having decided that I’d be wearing my sister’s veil), and he said they’re “ghostly and weird.” I wore one anyway. 🙂 Serves me right for asking.

I had that happen with a tiara. He insists on one and I don’t want one, but he bought one for me so I guess I am wearing one.

Lol! Ghostly and weird! Men can be dramatic too, no? I’m sure he thought it was gorgeous once he saw you!
I figure my wedding look is already not what I’d envisioned- and I get a “re-do” with the same dress at our reception later in the year, so why not give him what he wants. Ahhh I’ll make such a good wifey, lol!

@tksjewelry: I will keep my mouth firmly shut about tiaras!!!! LOL!

@double0bride: I know! I was so thrown when he said that–who knew that opinion was lurking inside him? Haha. It just shows that, as the OP warns, the groom should not be consulted about the bride’s wardrobe (unless you’re really prepared to hear his opinion)!

I asked my fiance about if he wanted/expected me to wear a veil on our wedding day. He said he didn’t really care but that he thought veils were childish. I was suprised, usually he is quite traditional.
I will be wearing one though, because my sister really really wants me to.
