So i have been thinking about showing my FI my dress from other bees that have it. Well….. tonight i did. Bad bad idea 🙁 I have had dress regret with the Divina, but fell back in love with my dress till now. I showed him and he says it’s just OK and the bottom looks like a hula hoop 🙁 that is not the reaction I was expecting. Has anyone else shown their FI the dress and got a bad reaction? Please help. I’m regretting my dress….. again.

@STBMrs.Waters: Oh. No. Tons of brides here have gone through this and they say that when he sees you in it, he’s going to think it’s beautiful. Post a pic of you in the dress? I think the divina is beautiful!

My fiance basically thinks all dresses are either “okay” or look like nightgowns. So I don’t show him any pictures, and hope that when he sees me in my dress, he’ll be happy because it’s me. That’s my advice…don’t worry about your dress because he will love YOU in it!

Thank you ladies. My mom and sister said the same thing. I felt like crying but couldnt let him know that i showed him my dress already. I’m hoping it’s just a premature regret

@STBMrs.Waters: Stunning!! He’ll never realise it’s the same dress when he sees you on your wedding day. My fiance also has an ‘it’s ok’ ‘looks weird’ ‘meh’ policy when it comes to dresses. If I put something on, it’s a whole other story. I just don’t think their brains work in the same way to visualise as ours do!

I showed FI my dress last week, and did not get the reaction I hoped for. I’ve been having doubts about my dress. It’s a very traditional, simple A-line and although it’s beautiful I keep feeling it’s not for me and I’ve been having some issues with the alterations.
I decided I would show FI to get his opinion before I decided to change the dress. He said it was boring! I was shocked, and felt very defensive of the dress but he’s right, it is boring. I’m going to try and add a sash and change the neckline and see what happens.
To men, all wedding dresses look the same. When your all “jacked up” and you have the veil, jewelery, shoes, makeup and hair done, it’s a whole different story. If you love it, he’ll love it when you walk down the aisle.

@STBMrs.Waters: For the majority of brides, your FI isn’t going to give two shits about your wedding dress. It’s a dress and it’s white and that’s pretty good. It’s jsut not something that’s going to be on their radar or that they have any experience with.
When I showed my FI my dress he asked why I didn’t get one with a zipper.
Because corsets are fucking awesome, that’s why, doofus.
If I gave him a line up of 5 wedding dresses, he would have no idea which one he was shown before.
So, yeah, when you’re walking down the ailse, wearing your hula-hoop dress, he’s going to think you’re gorgeous. And if you want legit feedback on your dress, post it here with there’s hundreds of women who have experience with that sort of thing 🙂

A lot of guys can’t see the bigger picture with a dress. Once he sees you in it with all your accessories he probably won’t even realize it’s the same dress. He’ll just see that you’re glowing and happy, and beautiful. If you love it, and you have the confidence to pull it off I’m sure he will love it as well!

I can 100% guarantee that if you wear the dress on the big day, he will have NO CLUE that it’s the same dress as the one you showed him.
Dudes don’t care about dresses (for the most part). They care about what’s inside the dresses.
You’ll have plenty of things to worry about over the course of your planning. This is not one of them. Don’t create drama where there isn’t any…there is sure to be some at some point, but not over the dress! 🙂

Oh man i’m so sorry that your FI thought it was boring:( Yeah maybe if you think a statement necklace or sash may zest it up a bit, you should do what you’d like. I hope your hubby will change his mind 🙂 I’m sure you’ll look amazing in it.

@STBMrs.Waters: Ohh I thought you had the Divina – I understand what you’re saying now. Your dress is gorgeous! I love the lace detailing. It’s really, really beautiful and looks amazing on you. Perhaps if he doesn’t like the bottom of the skirt, you can see if you can alter that part out? I think it’s gorgeous, though.
