  • poll: Did you or would you let him see the dress?

    Yes, he saw me in the dress itself!

    Yes, I showed him a picture of me in the dress.

    Yes, I showed him a picture of the dress, but not of me in it.

    No, I didn't let him see anything until our wedding day!

    Other, I will explain below.

    When I started out looking at dresses in magazines and online many months ago, I asked my FI’s opinion of what styles he liked, but didn’t want him to see me in whichever one I chose, until the day of.

    I purchased a dress online earlier this year and he saw what it looked like hanging up, but not on me. Then I didn’t end up trying the dress on until this past weekend…(err..yeah, I know) and it  doesn’t work! So, went dress shopping (gulp) and took pictures of me in dresses and showed my Fiance what I looked like in some of those.

    I feel I’m in a bigger time crunch so I’m that much more overwhelmed and feel it means even more to me to have my Fiance like the dress.

    So, after much discussion in the past several hours, my FI’s vote is for the dress I plan to buy tomorrow night and I am happy with that.

    After all that said, however, I won’t show him what the final look of the dress will be until our wedding day, so I’m sure he’ll still be in awe the day of…;)

    Good luck to you! 🙂

    p.s. one of the other reasons for me being overwhelmed is my Fiance and I are pretty much paying for our own wedding…so budget is another thing….

    So many variables..(sigh!)

    We looked online at a few dresses just to see what he liked and didn’t like and he didn’t really have an opinion about any of the dresses but I noticed that he don’t like dresses that have a lot of gathering at the bottom (the skirt part).  Dresses that are very dramatic or filled with flowers to create the skirt, he just really hated those.  I hate them too so he don’t have to worry about me wearing that.  He told me that he already know that I’m going to be beautiful on our wedding day so I know he’s going to love the dress I’m wearing.

    It’s actually kind of funny, one day I accidently left the flower girl dresses on the bed and he came into the room and saw the dresses and starting covering his eyes and running out the room telling me that I left my dress on the bed.  I laughed and said babe, you think I can fit in these little dresses. We just laughed. It was cute. LOL
