    • Wedding: August 2013

    My Mum shopped with me and my sister (the only bridesmaid) was offended I hadn’t taken her shopping so I showed her online. Other than that no-one. I didn’t even describe it to my friends, I wanted it to be a total surprise.

    I showed everyone the model picture of the dress (except DH. He wanted no information about it at all) 

    the only people who saw it on me were my mom, 3 BM’s and my SIL – they went shopping with me.

    The only people that saw it on me were my momma, FMIL and FSIL. When it came in it was just my mom who saw my dress on me, but I did show my grandma’s, MOH and 2 close friends. But only my mom has seen me in my actual dress.

    My mom and one of my bridesmaids are the only people that have seen it in person. But I’ve showed pictures to…. Almost everyone I know. XD I couldnt help it, I was so excited and everyone kept asking, so I just showed them.

    I haven’t shown anyone (Except the bee). I’m not at all close to my mother so we didn’t go shopping together, and when I went shopping with my best friend i didn’t try the dress I bought on. I was really indecisive for a long time about which gown to get so no one isneven sure what style i ended up with.

    Just my mom as we went shopping together. Didn’t get a photo that did it justice but if I did the bridesmaids would see it. No one else!

    My first dress my mom and friend were the only people who saw it in person, because they were there when it was purchased. For my second dress the only people who saw it were my mom and dad. I had pretty crappy photos of my dresses on my phone and if someone asked I would show them. I don’t see the point in keeping it a secret (except from DH) and it was hard to tell from the photos what it really looked like. I also got both of the dresses taken in, didn’t have a veil, or proper accessories on in either photo. People were still blown away.
