The only person with me when I got my dress was a friend from work. My mom came to the fitting with me. Other than that I have text it to some of my long distance bridesmaids, but I haven’t shown it to anyone else. I kind of want it to be a surprise on the wedding day. Although I really want to show it off to everyone, I’m refraining. 🙂
When people ask, I just say I don’t have a picture of it on my phone.
What about you? Who all saw your dress before your wedding day?

The only people who have seen my dress are my mom and my MIL and FIL (my MIL has the dress right now and is doing alterations). My dress is black, so I really really want it to be a surprise. We are also having a small wedding (40), so I feel like if I show the dress to people I might normally with a larger wedding, no one will be surprised!

I actually bought my dress alone. I tried it on and decided to purchase it with no one around. My daughters have seen it, my mom and friends. I don’t want to show my dress off too much, I’d like for it to be a surprise as much as possible but I do love my dress and if someone asks I’ll usually show them the stock photo.

I’m a bit strange. Only my SIL and my FI. His sister came with me to pick it out and since we were talking non stop we shared pictures with him. My parents, his parents and his other sister have no idea about it. I dont have any superstitions about him seeing me in it and were eloping anyways

Only the people who were with me when I bought it. So, my mom, brother, sister, and nephew. We are having a small guest list so if I show some extra people, too few would be surprised.

I’m glad I’m not in the minority yet! The only person I went to try on dresses with was my FMIL (against my better judgement bc she is a B that makes faces at any dress she doesn’t like). I ended up going back by myself bc I didn’t find anything I liked, so I picked out my dress myself. Much less stressful!! I wasn’t going to show ANYONE – I was just telling everyone it was a “surprise” lol. But then my MOH and one BM were there getting their dresses and I wanted ro try it on w veils, but they have been sworn to secrecy!! Lol

Only my mom and I have seen it in person. I have a stock photo of it that I have shown to my dad and my MOH. No one else has seen it, I don’t think.

- Wedding: February 2014 - Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts
Well my wedding is over but when I purchased my last dress (had two dress regrets before I decided on 3rd and final dress), I showed it to my mom, his mom, and three close friends.
