No way! I wanted the first time he saw me in it to be when I walked down the isle and glad I did it that way, the look on his face was lovely

I showed him a style of the dress I bought, but not the dress specifically.

He doesn’t want to see it. He doesn’t even want to see the pictures of me in ANY dress. It’s so hard since he’s the person I go to for everything. 

He knows it’s nothing like what I thought I would buy and he knows it’s a ballgown. So, I can’t wait for him to see it.

silkybutterbee :  Ditto. I don’t have “the dress,” yet, but he told me I’m not allowed to show him pictures of any I’ve been trying and it’s driving me crazy, but I try thinking about how much fun the “first look” will be.

I’ve shown him everything I’ve tried on and loved. My Maid/Matron of Honor says I’m robbing him of the experience of seeing me walk down the isle but he’s my bestie I can’t help it

I bought Dress 1 and he was there when I picked it out. I had dress regret. Bought dress 2, which I showed him long ago as part of a “collection” of love-it dresses, and he really liked it. I’m sure he has already forgotten about it since I show him so many things everyday…it’s easier for me to hold it in since I’ve already had the experience of “showing the dress” haha.

Yep, he was there when purchased. It’s fine. He’s not going to recall details 10 months from now + HMU. I’m not worried, but oh the horror! on some friends faces when they found out that detail haha

Alicia Rene :  ooooh, not showing pictures of ANY is extra hard! After I bought my dress, I showed Fiance pictures of all the dresses I didn’t buy, and we had a good laugh over how uncomfortable I obviously felt in some of them! But I was trying on gowns and ended up with a bridesmaid dress that’s way more my style, so I’m hoping the pictures he saw will add to the surprise of my (much more “me”) dress!
