Last weekend I went to visit my best friend and of course, we went dress shopping. We ended up picking out the same exact dress that my mother and I had decided on months ago so we took a ton of pictures.
This morning I was driving my Fiance to work and I look over and he’s crying.. apparently he picked up our digitial camera to take to work and upload some of our vacation/engagement pics and totally, 100% saw all of the dress pictures. And the crying was bc he though I looked stunning. (haha, he’d kill me for telling anyone that).
So good news- he loves it, bad news, he saw it. Ack, I’m superstitious- I don’t know what to do… should I scrap the dress and start over?
Do you believe that it’s bad luck for the groom to see the dress before the wedding?
*and since we all love pictures, I’ve attached the dress in question. Minus the tiara and gloves for my taste though ^_^

that is such a beautiful dress!
and no, i dont think its bad luck because he hasnt seen you in it with your hair and makeup done with flowers etc on your wedding day…. thats when the magic happens

awwwww if the dress brought him to tears why would you even consider swapping? that’s a silly old tradition, don’t worry about it 🙂

I would definitely keep the dress if you love it and he loves it! I think it’s a silly superstition.

Eh…I think that superstition/tradition is kind of dumb honestly. I took my Fiance dress shopping with me. I appreciated the moral support. And now he’s just as excited about the dress as I am.
Definately keep the dress! Don’t little that kind of sillyness keep you from getting the dress you want. It’s your wedding day. He was going to see it on you eventually. And besides, you’ll look different after it is fitted and you add the hair and all of the acessories.

I agree w/ Melissa – if it brought him to tears, you should ABSOLUTELY keep it.

You HAVE to keep it! Plus it will be different when he sees it on you in person.

Melissa and danadelphia have it right. Definitely keep it!

I really don’t see much difference in him seeing the photo and comparing that to a first look before the ceremony- and people do that allll the time now and things turn out just fine for them. If you moved him to tears in that dress, I would say that is a pretty darn good sign!!

aww thats such a SWEET story!! even though i’d be upset if Fiance saw mine, he would to though, he avoids the room it stays in at all costs!! however, it something like that happened, of course i’d keep it (or go ahead and purchase it, you’ve fallen in love w/it twice!!) and pics of you in the dress will be NOTHING comared to you in your dress in person!

Actually, my Fiance has seen my dress photos, too!!! But only while scanning through pictures here on the internet…I quickly cover up the screen & go “YOU DIDN’T SEE THAT DID YOU?!?!?” It’s totally my fault for not being careful..but it’s happened numerous times. It does suck, BUT at least he didn’t see you in it. I’m totally traditional & we didn’t even THINK about a first look…but don’t worry girl, he didn’t see you in it! You’re fine! 🙂

No, don’t worry! My Fiance didn’t want to see mine either, and then they came up on my screen saver at home and he saw 🙁 I’m really upset (and so is he) that he saw, but a lot of people even go dress shopping with their FI! I wouldn’t worry about it! 🙂

My Fiance and I bought my dress together!
He’ll forget by the time he sees you on your wedding day, and with hair + makeup + alterations, the effect will be completely different.

I can see why you’re upset, but really, it’s not a big deal. Plus, he’s seen pictures, not you in the dress, nor the dress in person. Even if you were superstitious, I’m pretty sure the saying doesn’t cover digital pictures 🙂

dresses look so much different in person than through the view on the camera! he will still love it!
