    He’s seen my shoes but doesn’t really pay attention. No way he’ll see my dress before the big day though!

    He’s seen my shoes but I’m trying to keep the rest a secret.  He could easily look at my veil, headpiece, and jewelry though because they’re currently in our apartment.

    He’s seen my shoes, but that’s it. 😉

    Everything is TOP SECRET until the wedding.

    I’m wearing 4 1/2″ heels.  I wanted to make sure our height difference wouldn’t look weird in pictures, since I typically wear flats and didn’t know how tall I’d be in comparison to him.

    he’s seen my dress. he just doesn’t know which dress i chose. as for accessories, i’m not keeping much a secret i don’t think. i like his opinion.

    He sort of accidentally saw the shoes because my friend was over, saw the box, and said “are those your wedding shoes?”. I didn’t want to lie, and of course she wanted to see them, so I showed them to her.

    … Fiance, who was at the table at the time the box was opened, hated them. But it’s tough because I’m wearing them. Honestly, if we were on “Don’t Tell the Bride” then I’d be screwed for shoes, because there are only about 2 brands available in the UK which make shoes that I can physically get on my feet (I have deformed feet).

    Nope, he’s seen pictures of my dress and shoes. I have some special details though that will be a surprise – such as my garter and dress label I had made.

    He accidently saw my dress via a picture I was editing for the Bee, but he will honestly forget it by the time the day comes and I am not showing him again (on accident OR on purpose!). He will see my veil because I just can’t wait to show it off to him! 😀 And he’s seen my head band.

    I think he’s caught a glimpse of my shoes that I’m DIYing modge-podge style, but he has no idea what I’m putitng on it and how they will look. He will definitely NOT see the dress, and I’m not telling any one about my dress or details surrounding it. (except for the lovely ladies on the Bee, because I have to share details with SOMEONE) I like the idea of it being a complete surprise! (I HAVE gone dress shopping with my Maid/Matron of Honor but that was only to try on a few stlyes, she has no idea what the final dress will be).

    He saw my shoes because he wanted to make sure he would still be taller than me lol.

    my first instinct was to say that i kept everything a secret but if i really think about it, i think he’s actually gotten previews of everything! i’m not good at secrets. >.<

    he’s seen stock photos of my dress but it was before i had actually selected it so he didn’t know it was “the one”. he was technically in the store with me when i purchased my veil but he was sitting on a couch way across the room and playing on his phone so i’m sure he missed the finer details of it. and he may or may not have seen the shoes as they were lying around the apt for MONTHS (they were the first wedding related thing i purchased). actually, come to think of it, i think i walked around in them a couple of times while he was home! ugh, i’m so bad at this!
