I said yes to the dress! I had two different appointments scheduled for today and I absolutely fell in love. I felt like I had tried on many styles and very open minded and had enough different options! I said yes to the dress and am so excited! In love! My fiancé was so excited for me today for my appointments. I told him all about the appointment without giving details of anything away. Explained tried different gowns, how I felt overall about experience, and those kinds of things. No appearence details. He is so excited for me and can’t wait to see THE DRESS! But he was asking about other dresses I had tried on and asked if he could see any of those. Even those that were obvious no but still very beautiful on me. What do y’all think? Did you show any other “no” dress pics from appt to your fiancé?? He won’t see it until I walk down the isle!

Nope. Did not let him see me in ANY wedding dress!

i think i might have shown him one, but it was only one and it was the most hilarious ridiculous looking one that was the farthest from what my dress actually looked like haha!

Yes I did, it didn’t ruin the experience at all and I’m glad I did!!

I wouldn’t because then what if he comments on not liking an aspect that is the same as my dress or on loving something that isn’t? Maybe after the wedding but not before!

No because many of the dresses I tried on are similar to mine in style. I don’t want him to know any aspect.

I went to my first appointment with FI! I went knowing I wasn’t going to buy from that particular shop, so it was great just having fun in a no-pressure environment, and I loved the feedback from Fiance. It hasn’t changed my mind about what I want, if anything, it’s solidified it as he would pick out aspects of dresses that he loved, that I also love.
So, I vote yes! Fiance got a little teary at times saying I looked like a bride. It was adorable to see and I don’t feel like it’ll take anything away from him seeing me for the first time in my dress on the day.

Yeah, I showed him some, but it was before I’d found my actual dress. It’s no real secret that I wanted (and eventually bought) a sheath dress, and a lot of the dresses from my first appointment were ballgown or a-line, so it didn’t really seem like spoiling my wedding look, more like “here’s the only time you’ll ever see me in a ballgown!” type of thing.

I showed him dresses online that I tried on but none of me in them. He didn’t comment much (I assume he just saw white dresses lol)

No way! Showing what it WASN’T going to be like would have been providing him too much information.

DH went with me to the appt and helped me pick it out!!

I gave him a twirl in the dress after I picked it up from the store

I showed him five different stock dresses I was interested in online and told him to rate them then bought his top pick. 😊 So I guess he picked the one for me.
