(Closed) Am I the ONLY ONE showing a pic of my dress to FI?

I was leaning towards showing my Fiance my dress. I agree that they likely won’t remember fuzzy cell phone pictures, etc. And when I was shopping, I really wanted a male opinion! But I ended up bringing my Dad. For some reason, I ended up keeping it a secret (probably because that’s what everyone tells you to do!) But I must say, now that the wedding’s really close, I’m glad he hasn’t seen it yet. I guess I just like the tradition 🙂

My Fi refuses to know anything about the dress before hand. He wants it to be a surprise!

I’m with you! I showed a picture of the dress to my Fiance, I wanted to be sure it wasn’t something he really disliked. I did ask him if he remembered it, and I as I expected he didn’t 🙂

I showed Fiance a photo; I wanted to be sure he liked what he saw.  I know it will be a different look altogether with hair/make-up/accessories on the day of, but I wanted his thumbs up on the general concept.

Nope I showed him stock images from the website as well as me in the dress – I covered up my head in the pics though since I didn’t want him to see me with the veil on all decked out!

Mine has seen me in my dress. It was 2 sizes to big, but he got the idea. I suck at surprises! He won’t see it now that it fits me until the wedding, which is in 39 DAYS!

My dress is custom-made, and my Fiance was actually part of the design process.

We both enjoyed the experience…I wouldn’t have had it any other way!

Before I started trying on dresses I would show Fiance pages of dresses and have him show me dresses he thought was nice just so I had an idea of styles he likes but I would never ever show him my dress bc he has a good memory and I  think my Fiance would remember….  I got a good idea of styles he liked and what he didn’t like bc I wanted to be on the same page of thinking as I went shopping for dresses!

@ticatica:  Same here. I wanted to show him, but he shuts his eyes at the mention of my dress, haha.

Mine came shopping with me and picked out the dress himself. We’re not conventional or traditional at all. I’m glad he did because now I know he will love it.

Fiance doesn’t want to see me in my dress until the church doors open– we’re not even doing a “first look”, which I find kind of amusing, because he is not really a “traditional” guy at ALL.  I was cleaning pictures off of my phone, and he didn’t even want to see any of the ones I tried on but DIDN’T get. I guess it’s one of the few things that he has an opinion about, as far as the wedding is concerned. He wants to wear a black tux (“I want to look like James Bond!”), doesn’t want to see me until the ceremony and wants a fantastic reception. Done, done and (hopefully) done 🙂

I showed him a pic of me in it the day I bought it! I knew he’d want to see it and I wanted him to see it. A few weeks later I asked him, and the only thing he could remember was “It was white wasn’t it? And there were strappy things?” I wanted to include him – the dress was partially for him anyway :p

I showed Fiance pictures of dresses on models to see what he liked and he didn’t really like anything that I loved.

So, when I went shopping for a dress, I had him in the back of my mind and ended up purchasing a dress that I thought he would like instead of what I loved.

Now I regret ever showing him anything!!!!
