My honey saw it hanging in the window while I laced up the back, but never me in the dress….yet. He tries to sneak peaks on weddingbee all the time, though!! I have to look over my shoulder like a hawk! 🙂

Nope, I haven’t even shown him any pictures of any dress. He has seen the silouette of it through the bag for like a second, but other than that he has no idea. And he isn’t a snooper…At least I hope not LOL

Early on in the process, Fiance said he wanted the complete wedding surprise and no first-look. I had talked with him about some of the things I was interested in a gown, and he didn’t object to anything. So when I went shopping, I didn’t even tell him at first. I managed to keep it a secret for OVER TWO WEEKS. It was killing me. 

He had been wondering whether I was getting an ivory or white gown, so he could determine his shirt’s color. And when we went looking for wedding rings again (hehe… I think I went back to that one store three times), I blurted it out. “I got a dress. And it’s ivory with a hint of peach”. :p

He has even seen the dress! He had seen lots of photos and wanted to see what the quality was like in real life. He said he loves it even more in real life than in photos, even his mum has told me he really loves it.

But he has not seen it on me! 🙂

I’ve showed him a picture of the dress online, but not with me in it. I kinda threw away some traditions. I’ve had so many family members do marriage the “right way”, not living together till their married, staying celibate, getting married in a big catholic ceremony, that some traditions and superstitions just to phase me anymore. Don’t get me wrong though, I think some of the traditions are fun and i fully intend to go through with some of them, such as a the “some thing old…”.

I don’t plan on showing him but he knows what kinda of design I like/want…

We went through a couple of bridal magazines together and I don’t like any of the ones he suggested and we have completely different tastes. I will go with what I love of course and am sure he will love it in the end +_+

Fiance would run screaming from the room if I tried to show him a picture of my dress. He is EXTREMEMLY adamant about not seeing the dress until the day of the wedding, which I was shocked about at first, but now I’m loving the suspense it will bring, and I know he’ll love the dress. Suprisingly though, he doesn’t even want to see the dresses that didn’t make the cut, even after the wedding. He said he only ever wants to see me in one wedding dress and he wants it to be my dress, and on the day of the wedding. So romantic! 😀
