I thought it might be fun to see what your SO’s thought what style you were going to get, and what you REALLY wore. Bonus points for pictures!
Here’s mine to start it off. 🙂
So last night a post from one of my “liked” wedding pages on Facebook came up when FI was sitting right next to me. He says “Oh! Go back! He says, “I’ll bet you got *points* that style, huh?”
I just shrugged, but I couldn’t help but laugh inside. He picked out a ballgown that was FULL of sparkle. He saw my reaction and he said, “I knew it! I know you so well!”
Now, in his defense, sparkles and poof were what I ORIGINALLY wanted. However, I wound up with a gorgeous, simple Paloma Blanca that’s mermaid fit.
What he thinks I got
What I actually got! Paloma Blanca 4111 <3

haha That’s too funny! I’m pretty sure my fiancé thinks I got something really simple and modern because that’s usually my style. When I asked him what he knows I didn’t get he said he knows I for sure didn’t get anything with lace sleeves. My dress actually has a lace bolero that I am planning on wearing for the ceremony so I can’t wait to see his face. lol My dress isn’t what I’d consider vintage though, however, it’s more classic than modern.

@Wellington Bride: LOL!
I don’t know exactly what FI thinks I bought, but I think he has a pretty good idea from my comments while watching SYTTD. He knows I don’t like tulle and ballgowns but still, the little details glaze over in his manly mind.

@Wellington Bride: I did this! I e-mailed him a photo of the gypsy bride whose dress had hundreds of lights, and told him that she’d copied her dress from mine exactly! LOL
When I really (for the moment) plan on wearing this:

I don’t think my FI really has an idea of what I’ll be wearing. He knows I like to be comfortable (so mermaid is out since they’re tight), I showed him a picture of a simple satin ballgown I tried on and he knows I thought it was too plain (although he did ask if I tried it because of the pockets which was the only reason I liked the dress), I showed him a picture of an all lace dress with cap sleeves that I tried on and I told him I looked like a linebacker, etc. So all he really knows is what I didn’t like…so maybe he does have some idea of what I want? Lol
He knows I love pink and sparkle…my dress isn’t pink but has lots of sparkle on the bodice. I actually showed him a picture of my dress before I even knew it would be my dress, so he knows I liked “my” dress. Does that make sense? Haha
Anyways, here’s my dress:

I don’t know that my SO has any idea of what I’m getting, but whenever my friends look at pics (on my phone) of me trying on my dress, they’ll say “Oh, it’s so dark… and gothic… very Victorian vampire.” I don’t think he takes them seriously but it would be funny if he did.
This is my dress: http://www.casablancabridal.com/collections/view/29/418#.UOs20nf4LTp

He’s pretty sure it’s white/ivory and looks like a wedding dress, that is about it! If I’m watching SYTTD he keeps saying comments about how he can’t tell them apart. Yep, he’s a wedding dress noob!

These replies are funny! Mine thinks I got something with straps, lacey, and flowy. This is my dress:

He knows its pickups because he knows i loved pickups and he knows i ended up getting strapless but i think thats about it. I keep trying to trick him and say how its full of ruffles and feathers since he hates those but he knows i’m lying. I can’t find the one he sent me a while ago of the dress he liked but mine is very similar just not as plain. Knowing him he prolly won’t be able to tell the difference.

Im pretty sure my FI knows exactly what dress I got – “my favorite” before I ever went dress shopping. Now…could he pick it out of a lineup of similar gowns? Probably not. He’s a man. Lol. I had showed him pictures of the Divina before I went dress shopping and he knew it was my favorite. I told him I got something completely different but Im not sure he believed me. He isnt the type to try to find out before anyways so Ill keep the lie going. Haha!
My Divina is supposed to be in on Jan 21!!!! I cannot wait!!

@Mrs Canuck: hehe. I’ve told him my maid of honour is carrying a small fire extinguisher incase the LED lights on the butterflies on the bodice erupt into flames, but that the risk is worth it. Hehehe

He won’t even talk about it when asked! He just says that he doesn’t want to think about it because he doesn’t want to get an image in his head.

He knew I’d get something form- fitted.
