I vote you should buy your DREAM dress (but leave out the “screw what your Fiance thinks”). I believe women should always wear what makes THEM feel beautiful and glamorous. Because if you’re feeling happy, your man is going to be happy too – regardless of what you’re wearing.
My Fiance will love anything I choose to wear on our wedding day, as long as I’m happy. Maybe I’m old school but I subscribe to the saying that a man should never tell a woman how she should wear her make-up, style her hair, or how to dress – because it’s personal, super impolite, and quite frankly none of his business (unless you’re a complete slob and can’t dress yourself at all). Then again, my Fiance and I both appreciate each other’s sense of style & fashion so we trust that whatever we put on it’s going to look ggoooooddd! 😉

Whoa, that picture looks like it has an interesting story attached. Why’d you have your dress cut off?

We had this conversation after I bought my dress, he said he really didn’t like those strapless mermaid dresses and I thought to myself, phew! If I did get that, I’d probably reconsider my choice.

it was long and annoying to dance in lol. I’m actually having the dress shortened so I can wear it as a cocktail dress anyways.

My mom and friend shopped for and picked my wedding dress and sent it to me because of this AMAZING deal at a sample sale back in Texas (I live in CA), so neither of us had a say or opinion in the way it looked.
Fiance really wants to be surprised, so I hadn’t really considered his opinion at all.
We went to buy his suit this past weekend (Hello Father’s day clothing sales!) I had a vision for what he’d wear in my mind, but then he reached for a gray suit which I didn’t expect. He put it on and just seeing the way he stood there looking dapper and confident, I knew that he knew best.
I feel like it makes the most sense to wear something you feel good in and confident in, rather than feeling frumpy in a poufy dress or feeling squeezed in something “sexy”.

@MrsAgainstTheGrain: The dress of MY dreams for sure. If your Fiance had very strong opinions about a certain gown (hates ballgowns, hates mermaids, etc.) then I’d take that into consideration, but I would not base my decision on his opinion. You will be happy in a dress that makes you happy, that’s the most important thing. 🙂

@MrsAgainstTheGrain: Your dress will matter 64337% more to you than it will to him! While Fiance liked my dress, I DEFINITELY didn’t pick it for that reason!

I have serious self-esteem issues, and he always tells me I’m beautiful in anything I wear, so I really didn’t think of his opinion (I also had NO idea what he would like/dislike in a wedding gown).. I just focused on finding something I’d be comfortable in and feel beautiful in, because I know my confidence will show. 🙂

It will DEFINITELY be the dress of my dress.

I wouldn’t freak out over a stray comment from your guy. He might mean he liked that it was low cut, or that it had no ruffles, or that it was white. It might not be anything like what you think it means. He mightve picked something just because he thought he had to, that’s the first dress he thought of, and it wasn’t ugly. And they usually don’t care about what we’re wearing half as much as we do.

When I was growing up I always knew that I would wear a ballgown and look like a princess! When I showed my Fiance pictures of dress in the style that I liked, the one thing he said was “I don’t like dresses with tulle”. That was exactly what I wanted!
Needless to say my anxiety and stress shot through the roof, then I noticed his blank look when I showed him other dresses. Or the “that’s okay” comments I would get.
Needless to say, I chose the dress I knew I would feel the most beautiful in (strapless, ballgown, tulle skirt), and I am confident that he will adore me in it.

lol, DH hated my wedding dress. I showed it to him before I bought it, and he told me he hated it. I brought the dress home and he still hated it. I didn’t care. He was marrying me, not the dress.
Fuck it, my dress was awesome. He can deal!

I wouldn’t have wanted to get a dress that I knew Fiance would dislike. I think he’d probably prefer me to wear something more sexy, but I picked something I’d be comfortable in that I think he’ll still like plenty. So it’s a bit of a compromise. But this is all speculation cause I haven’t shown him the dress!

In general terms; I do think it’s important that your Fiance likes the style/colour of your wedding dress, but if he likes ball gowns and they make you feel/look frumpy and uncomfortable, I’m sure he’d rather you wore something you loved/felt comfortable in.
Luckily SO and I tend to like the same styles, but I know he will think I look beautiful in whatever I wear on our wedding day.

I never factored in my husband’s opinions when I was buying my gown. He wasn’t wearing it, and I highly doubt he’d ever care.
