Nope.. he didn’t see it at all till the ceremony =)

I was tempted at times but I knew that overall I didn’t want him too and he didn’t really want to so I didn’t

I tried to show him pictures of me in a bunch of dresses to see if he had any opinions since I’m having such a hard time deciding what is the right dress for me. He said no, he really wants to be suprised on the day of the wedding, even though I wouldn’t have told him which one I decide on (if any) afterwards. Kind of suprised me, not really like him. So I’m stuck without his opinion, still trying to figure out which is “my” dress.

I took my little point and shoot down to Charleston to pick up my gown and snapped a few pictures of myself in it.  I didn’t think to delete the pictures and my Fiance took that camera with him on a business trip to Europe.  He wound up seeing them…but on a 2×3 screen.

I was a little bummed, but the pictures were so tiny on that LCD that I don’t think it matters that much.

I showed him a picture of the dress I chose at the time when I was wedding dress shopping but after I tried it on I didnt like it and ended up going with a different dress. I havent showed him which dress I chose. He wanted to be surprised!

Accidentally.  He saw my dress when I was looking at dress styles, before I even got it.  He doesn’t know it’s my dress though but he’s seen pictures of it.

No, I want mine to be surprised!  I won’t even save a pic on my computer or in my phone photos…I keep a pic hidden in my text messages somewhere lol.

I did EVERYTHING in my power to NOT show my hubby.. HE wanted to see it… hes pretty nifty and coniving  at getting his way but I kept to my guns and didn’t… however there was a magazine that had my dress on it and told him the dress was in the magazine.. so he carefully studied each picture (only about 30 dresses in the magazine)… so YES he saw it..but he had no idea wich one it was… that was 10 years ago.. this time for our vow renewal.. he took me dress shopping a few days ago.. so he will see the dress I pick beforehand.. and know.. hes happy he gets to be part of the picking this time

oh, sure.  i’ve shown him the model pix of all of the ones i’ve been interested in.  he’s pretty involved with this dress shopping thing, and is actually interested.  i’m loving it, actually, since i don’t really have anyone else i can take shopping with me.  i won’t tell him when i make an actual decision, or what i decide…unless of course i order the dress at my next appointment in a couple weeks, because he’ll be there.  but regardless, he won’t see me in THE dress itself until i walk down the aisle toward him on 10.27.2012.  especially if i go the bridesmaid gown route…he won’t even see it in the right color.  and nothing in the shops have fit me so far…most things are abysmally small, and a few things have been too big.

I showed my fiance about 100+ dresses and told him that mine was in one of thoes pictures.  He picked the right one… he’s convinced that I will be wearing that dress.  Of course I told him he was wrong, but he’s right, lol.  I guess I made the right choice, he said he can’t see me in anything but that dress.

yes, i made him look at pics of me in the dresses more than he cared to because i was so indecisive about what to get!  i finally had it narrowed it down to two dresses and he could see i was stressing so he finally gave me his full attention, examined both and gave his opinion on each – which helped me choose and forever be happy with my choice!  plus it was nice knowing that he loved the dress on me before the day. 

and none of this took away from our First Look moment since he had never seen it on me live in person, with my hair, makeup done, and only on our wedding day was i his bride, so that’s what made it special.

finally, with my husband, i can get away with wearing “new” clothes more than once and even if he loves them, he sometimes thinks its the first time he has seen it, lol.  poor attention and memory to female clothing and things he doesn’t care about besides in the momemt when is looking at me tend to work in my favor.

He’s seen pictures. I actually wanted him to come with me when I went dress shopping but he said he would be bored. 🙂

I see nothing wrong with showing our men the dresses as long as they don’t have a problem seeing them (some like to keep it traditional – nothing wrong with that). Fiance saw pictures of my dress when I selected it over 5 months ago and I can guarantee that he doesn’t remember a damn thing about it!

Nope.  He tries as hard as he can to figure it out, and sneak into my password locked picture file; but so far so good (I think).  In fact I am pretty sure that I have him convinced that I am wearing a short blue dress… 🙂  Which couldn’t be farther from what I am wearing.
