@Tunacupcakes:  I would say, you need to pick your dress because YOU like it.  Ultimately, you will glow in what YOU love, regardless of whether or not it would be his choice.  At the end of the day, he’s going to love you in whatever you choose as long as YOU love it, because that feeling will carry you down the aisle with beauty and confidence.  If it truly is important to have his blessing, however, and you feel that knowing he loves the dress ahead of time will help make YOU love the dress yourself, then maybe revisit the dresses he did like, don’t expect him to verbalize exactly why (we’re talking about men here! haha), and out of those he likes, pick the one that you also love out of that pile.  Are you having him come along to salons?  Or are you going to have your dress be a surprise?

I honestly think that whatever dress you are wearing he will love because you are wearing it and you are getting married.  I actually didn’t ask FH at all about what he does or doesn’t like in dresses.  He has no idea what I am coming out in.  Don’t be scared… pick out the right dress for you and I know he will love it too.

I agree he will think you look beautiful regardless because its you, the woman he loves and its your wedding day. What about a sheath style? It’ll make you look curvy yet it doesn’t flare out and isn’t trendy. Very classic. Think Pippa Middleton, maybe a little less sexy. What style do you love?

I’m so sorry. I worry that my guy won’t like my dress and he is very consistent and likes dresses similar to mine. But I agree that he will love you no matter what you wear. You should find a dress that you love, but maybe avoid the few things you know he really hates. Although, how a dress looks on a model, and how it looks on a real person are very different. Some dresses look really weird and awkward on models, but totally beautiful on real women.

I think it’s difficult for a man to really envision a dress– especially when in photos on models they look really wierd. There have been so many dresses I thought were ugly until I saw them ON the bride, and I couldn’t believe how gorgeous they were. My guy is terribly fashion-backward, so I don’t pay attention to his opinion.  Bring ladies with youwhen you try on dresses, for they will know what’s flattering on you.  I guarentee when you walk down the aisle he will think you are the most beautiful woman in the world!

@Tunacupcakes:  Well if he doesn’t like 98% of wedding dresses like you said and is so inconsistent, then I don’t think he’s the best person to be bouncing ideas off of.  haha.  I would just take him out of the equation, maybe stray from anything too over the top, since it sounds like he probably won’t like a poofy bedazzled ball gown, but other than that, make your decision for yourself.  He will honestly be so overwhelmed when you are walking down that aisle toward him that it won’t matter what you’re wearing!! 🙂

@HZ: I totally agree! I wrote my post before reading yours, then realized we said the same thing! Great Bees think alike! Wink

OMG!!! My Fiance is exactly the same way. I know that he can be pretty picky about things so I wanted to make sure he didn’t totally hate the dress I’d be walking down in. I showed him lots of dresses and he found something wrong with every one. Sometimes he would say a dress is ok, but then I would show him THE SAME DRESS on either a different model or a different pic I got off the web and then he wouldn’t like it. -__-

In the end I decide that he probably won’t even notice the dress and just picked something I loved… =)

Honestly, he will love whatever you pick because you are wearing it.  Go with what you want to wear.

I was orginally worried about that at first but I decided he didn’t have to wear it and as a guy he doesn’t have much to pick from for his wardrobe so isn’t able to create a real opinion. 🙂 hee hee! But seriously, I think you should get what you like and feel like a million bucks in because that will be what you exude which is what makes the dress. He’ll be so flabbergasted from the glow you have from feeling so gorgeous and just at the sight of you that he will love anything!

I second the suggestion of a sheath dress, depending on your figure. This one is so classic and amazing – it hugs the curves, but not super tightly, and it doesn’t flare at the bottom:

I think you should just get what you want and not worry about what previous comments he has made! He’ll forget all about the dresses he doesn’t like when he sees you in your dress!
