I think you should just show him you in the dress.  I personally wish I had taken my fiance with me to pick out my dress in the 1st place.  My fiance is similar to yours in that he would definite tell me honestly if he likes or dislike something on me.  I was having all sort of dress regret after I bought my dress and even was going to get another dress.  So finally I just decide to bring him (and an entourage) to seem me in my original dress plus many others.  He actually did like my dress the most.  Now I feel much better.  I figure that we are best friends and we do everything together, so why not this too.

Love it.  I would call it “sexy elegant.”  Still very classy with the lace but does have the open back.  And it DOES NOT look like you have shoulder pads 🙂

I think the dress looks great on you!  I think a lot of times dresses look a lot different on the model than they do in person.  I passed over my dress when I looked at the designer’s website but in the salon I fell in love!  If you feel better showing your FI then go for it!  I’m willing to bet all guys will love a dress they may have hated in a catalog when they see it on their bride.  I have been having dress regret lately as I hated having to pick just one style of dress.  My FI reminded me that any dress I wear will look great because I am in it and walking down the aisle to become his wife. I bet yours feels the same way!

its stunning! and if i were you, id show him. i bought a dress and freaked out so much thinking it just wasnt me and even tho my dad and his mom said hed love it – i caved and showed it to him. we both agreed it just wasnt me and i ended up buying a whole new dress. if youre anything like i am, showing him could definitely save you lots of stress! plus i dont think itd ruin anything for the big day when your hair is done, makeup is on, accessories & maybe a veil + all those emotions… itd be like brand new anyways! hell be so happy to marry u!

If you feel better showing him, I think you should show him.  I took my FI dress shopping with me.  He is really picky, so I am glad he was able to see it before the big day.

That dress is the PERFECT amount of sexy and it looks great on you. I think you should show him! I showed my fiance my dress, and I’m happy I did. I actually tried it on in front of him at home.

I wouldn’t show him, it would ruin the moment on your wedding day when he first sees you in it. Picky man or not, you should be able to figure out what does and doesn’t look good on you. 

By the way, crappy camera phone pic aside, the dress is beautiful on you.

My DH is totally picky and he was way pickier about the dress than I was. Even for his attire, we went to a ton of places and tried on a ton of suits while I pretty much just bought the first pretty one we both liked (yes, he picked my dress out!). I wouldn’t have dreamed about surprising him as some of the ones I liked in magazines, he hated. He also saw the looks from the hair and MU trials too.

Honestly, he will still be surprised as he is not seeing the dress + MU + hair all done together until the day of (plus the bouquet). Despite seeing it all in bits and pieces, DH was blown away at the first look and I’m glad he had pre-approved everything.
