- Wedding: October 2014 - Savannah, GA
Our wedding is 11 months out and I bought my dress last month. I am struggling with keeping the dress a secret from him. I really, really want his opinion, but I don’t want to lose the specialness of it on the wedding day. How many of you showed your FI the dress before the wedding or plan on showing them?

he didn’t see my dress, but i showed him pictures of lots of dresses- some similar to mine and some completely different- to see what he thought about the different styles. after our wedding i asked him if my dress was what he had expected. he said it wasn’t what he expected, but it was what he wanted. thank goodness we have similar tastes, hah.

I showed him the stock photo, but he won’t see me in the dress until the day of the wedding.

@dancindavinci: My husband picked out my wedding dress with me. I had way too much anxiety to not show him before. It didn’t take anything away from our big day 🙂 In fact, it helped me to enjoy it more.

No, I truly don’t think he wants to see it!

I did- he didn’t even come close to remembering what it looked like.

I showed him lots of dress photos to get his opinion. That was before I bought it though. It’s risky to ask his opinion after!

I did, but we eloped so it wasn’t a very traditional wedding. We were shopping at teh mall and I walked past a dark purple dress I really liked, and he encouraged me to try it on. I said I really loved it, and loved it enough to get married in it. I wished it was white though. He had no problem seeing me in it. I figured I’d buy it but still look to see if I could find it in white, and then wear it to a friend’s wedding if I did find it (we’d already been invited). Found it online, so ordered it. He said it was okay with him b/c even though he saw me in it, i didn’t have my hair done, shoes, etc.

No way!! The only people who saw my dress were my Mum who came shopping with me, and my sister (MOH) who couldn’t shop so I showed her a pic online.
DH didn’t want to see it before, he wouldn’t have looked, even if I had showed him.

I did show him stock photos of the dresses I was considering, and the one I ended up choosing. But since then, I’ve changed my dress…so he has no idea what I’ll be walking down the aisle in.

We both flew to New York to shop for my wedding dress, so I saw no other alternatives

I want to show him my dress but he doesn’t want too. He said it will spoil the surprised and “the moment” hehe. He wants to save that moment of seeing me on my dress for the first time for our family to witness…

He has seen stock photos of dresses that I liked but he doesn’t know which one I chose.

@dancindavinci: I showed my fiance my dress when I found it at the end of August beginning of September. We were about a year out, he’ll forget all about it anyways. It would have bugged him if I were showing everyone else while he was around as the first dress I found did (ended up changing mind about first dress, love my new dress)
