Just a thought!
I was sat on the bee looking at wedding dress thread on my laptop just now, and fiance came in from work and glanced over what was on the laptop screen and then looked a bit surprised as he saw a.wedding dress!! I think he thought it was mine, I quickly said “oh no that’s not mine! So don’t worry you’ve not just seen the dress! Just someone’s gorgeous dress on the bride website I go on!”
It made me think what if that was it and he’d accidently seen! 😂 haha!!

Yup. Mine saw the picture collage id put together for my chinese/replica dress maker. It was only a small pic. Not sure if he’s clocked it. I doubt he’d remember detail. I’m not worried I want him to be ‘wow’ and have a nice surprise moment but it’s hard not showing him as I know he’d be excited and interested.

I showed DH a picture of me in the dress the same day that I bought it lol. We’re not exactly traditional.

My Fi bought my wedding dress – I found it in a second hand shop and I knew that was it, so he bought it for me! LOL

- Wedding: July 2015 - Carmen\'s Lakeview
I showed my DH mine when we were engaged…I did it after I had purchased it but showed him other ones I had tried on too just to fool him so that he didn’t know which one it was that I had picked. He was still surprised the day of the wedding 🙂

We lived together before we were married – my dress hung in a clear bag in our guest room for 8 months. He saw it every time he had to use the printer. I don’t think he had a clue what it actually looked like, though.

I didn’t accidently showed it to him, I did! But it was before I knew it was my wedding dress. Haha. I purchased a dress that everyone loved but regretted immediately because I loved another one. So I showed it to my Fiance. And then I ended up calling the bridal shop a couple days later to exchange the dress, which they did! YAY! But by now, he’s forgotten what it looked it

I’m sure like most men he wont remember all the details like you say, I’m sure he will definately have that ‘Wow’ moment! 🙂 I know I want to show him my potential dress, just to hear his opinion but at the same I completely don’t want him to have any idea. HA!
I think thats cool you are not ‘traditional’, I like reading different ways people go about this whole wedding thing here on the bee! What was his reaction?
Ooooo I bet that was a steal then getting it from a second hand shop?! He must of loved it on you!
What a fun idea! Did he give your actual dress the best reaction when he saw the different dresses?
haha! I guess you didn’t mind him seeing it every now and then? That’s the thing…dresses often look different to how they look on the hanger!
Oh no! But I’m sure he will of forgotten like you say. I’m glad the shop managed to exchange it for you!

I know my fiance definately doesn’t want to see my dress, he doesn’t even want to see my shoes!
I put them on to test that I wasn’t taller than him next to him, and bless him he closed his eyes so he didn’t see my shoes! I said I don’t mind you seeing them haha!

He either almost accidentally saw it or actually saw it but won’t admit. One time I was showing him pictures on my phone of floral arrangements and he started scrolling the wrong way and my dress pictures were in there. He stopped real quick at one point and said “Wait! Are pictures of you dress in here??” and I snatched the phone away. He says he didn’t see it, that he just thought it was a possibility and wanted to stop before he saw it. But I doubt he would’ve stopped short like that if he hadn’t actually seen the photos. Didn’t matter because I know he would’ve forgotten what it looked like 2.5 seconds later because he’s a dude. I bet if you asked him today to describe my dress (we got married 3 months ago but we just spent hours going through our wedding photos for christmas gifts to our parents)… he’d still describe something totally different haha. Bless his heart.

My fiance saw mine for a split second. I hadn’t closed out of a picture of myself in it that was on my phone and later we were at the grocery store and I was trying to pull up a recipe and we were both staring at my phone screen. It was zoomed in so he mostly just got a cleavage shot and I turned the phone away immediately, but I played it off and he came to the conclusion that it couldn’t be my dress because my reaction was too calm. So I went with that haha. In the moment his face went into shock mode but by the end of the trip I’m sure he had already forgotten about it – I don’t think he could pick it out of a lineup!

Hahaha saaaammeeee! I showed him a bunch of dresses (one of which being the one I had just bought but he didn’t know which was mine) and he said he thought they were all beautiful except #3 (mine)…which was “disgusting and looks like an elmo suit”. Too bad so sad haha.

Fi almost saw mine! We were at the computer working on one thing or another, and my Iphone was dying, si I plugged it into the computer. I didn’t realize that my computer would want to do a photo synch, and all of my photos would start popping up!
Fi said “do you realize your phone photos are staritng to pop up” and I tackled him to the ground.
Thankfully, it was far enough back in my photos that it didn’t show up on that initial screen, but GOOD LORD!

I showed my Fiance pics of dresses that were very similar. He wasn’t a fan at all 🙁 but styles he likes I hate! I’m not too bothered though, I’m sure on the day with hair/makeup done and emotions running high, he’ll like what I picked in the end!
