Because I’m having such a small Destination Wedding in Maui, I showed a handful of close friends/family who won’t be able to be with us on our wedding day. Everyone else will have to wait to see it:)

i’m showing to whoever asks, except for my FH. he has no clue what it looks like and wants to be surprised.  just because they’ve seen “the dress”,  they haven’t seen the dress on YOU. which is more special : )

@Diamond84:  I’ve only shown a handful of people: my parents, in laws, Maid/Matron of Honor, personal trainer, fiancé’s grandmother who is too ill to attend the wedding, and one other friend.  That’s it.  Everyone else has to wait until October!

I showed a few people my top choices and then when it came down to the final two I did not say which one I choose. I even made my sister wait until the wedding day as no one was available to attend my final fitting with me. So I made them wait to be surprised

My mom and sister (MOH) were with me when I picked out my dress. I showed my Future Mother-In-Law because I wanted her to be apart of the wedding in that aspect, kinda a way to include her! When I picked up my dress I showed my father because he wasn’t as involved until that point. All in all, 7 people have seen it, but only 3 have seen it in person. I like the element of surprise with the wedding dress.

@Diamond84:  Well, I have chosen to keep it a secret from everyone attending the wedding. And I have shared pictures with those who will not be attending. But, to get over my “picked out a wedding dress recently” syndrome, I have been showing my dress off on the Wedding Bee any chance I can get. Haha With that said, what dress did you fall in love with?

Only one of my sisters (MOH) was with me when I tried on the dress that I eventually bought, so I had her take pictures. My other Maid/Matron of Honor lives in a different state, as well as my cousin (BM), and other sister (BM) was working. I sent them pictures of the dress I later bought, along with another dress I was considering. I’m not too fashion savy so I wanted their opinions. I also showed the pictures to a few coworkers and my Fiance. My Fiance knows what I look good in and I really value his opinion.

I’m still shopping, but I’m showing pictures of prospective dresses to anyone who wants to see – even my Fiance, who has been very inquisitive throughout the entire process!

Mostly I’ve shown my girlfriends, a couple of female coworkers (also friends, including one that I went dress shopping with), my mum (who has also asked my grandmother and aunt for opinions) and of course, my fellow bees.

Yeah I’m showing my parents, sisters, brothers and my friends but no one in FI’s family would see it so that he wouldn’t have an idea of what to expect.
