    i took him to one appointment. we were heading up the area where the shop was, so i made an appointment and we went. i didn’t buy anything, but i did get put into a dress that made him smile. i didn’t buy it because she didn’t look at the price before putting me in it (i told her $1500 was my max, i think the dress was close to $3000). but yeah. it was nice to get his opinion.

    that was the only time. though, i did show him pictures of all the dresses i tried on. so, he’s seen my dress, he just doesn’t know which one it is.

    @JMJ697MN:  I didn’t but my Fiance would not have given any advice. He would have been bored after the first dress and just told me right away that he liked everything just to try to get me out of there! I think if you are more comfortable going with him you should go for it!

    A couple weeks ago we were out of town with a few hours to spare and we drove by a David’s Bridal. MrMojito asked if I wanted to go in. i said no because it was a Saturday with no appt, and I’ve heard horor stories about doing that. But otherwise I would totally have gone with him. Neither of us care about the traditions. I’m afraid he might get bored though. He doesn’t love shopping with me, even for everyday stuff.

    btw I totally plan to show him the dress when I get it. It will be a totally different experience when he sees me on the day, all done up. And like I said, we just don’t care about the traditions.

    I took him to one appointment. I had taken my mom, my sisters, and some girlfriends to previous appointments and all those conflicting female opinions made my head hurt. I wanted to know what my GROOM liked. I’m wearing this fancy dress for him, after all! 😛 Going against tradition didn’t bother me at all but it sure bugged the ladies in the shop. My consultant must have asked at least three times, “Are you SURE you want him to see you in a dress?” You could tell they thought it was a terrible idea for him to be there. He thought a few of the dresses were okay, one he hated, and one he really, really liked and even took pics of, haha. It definitely wasn’t THE dress, but it was nice that he was excited about it.

    I took him to teo appoinments, the first one as I was walking with him and saw a shop (and has only engaged 1 week at that time), accidently he saw me in a dress (teary eyes lol), and the last time but he didn’t see me in any dresses, as now we are on a trip and didn’t know how to get there by my own, needless to say I found my dress. Laughing

    I went with my husband.  I don’t have any close friends where we live..and I didn’t really have anyone else..and I wasn’t going alone, so we went together.  I have no regrets.

    I won’t be taking him to any dress shops with me, none. But I have shown him pictures  of dresses I like at the time, and asked him whether he has preferences about dresses. But I would never take him to an appointment.

    Of course! It was way to difficult to get my BMs to go and I value his opinion. He came, he chose, I bought. never been happier

    My fiance lives in another state, so I didn’t really have to make a choice 🙂

    But I do want it to be a surprise, so I only told him that it’s strapless and has lace, which I’m sure he has already forgotten, lol.

    I took my Fiance to a couple appointments for his opinion but when it came to actually purchasing the dress I went solo and didn’t let him know which I chose.  I liked having him there to see styles and tell me which he liked on me and didn’t like on me.  I think its important to have his ideas of what I will look like in mind as well as for him to know what I like so he isn’t surprised the day of.  I found out he doesn’t like the one shoulder look AT ALL.  That was kind of disappointing for me because I did find one dress I loved with that look but it wasn’t a big deal for me to have it so I focused on what we both liked.
