    DH saw a photo of the dress on a store mannequin. He’s super forgetful and didn’t remember what it looked like by the time our wedding happened.

    No. I would have been more than happy to, but he didn’t want to see it beforehand.

    I haven’t, and I don’t plan on showing him until the wedding.  He has seen pics of me in a couple of dresses that I didn’t buy (and he knew that I didn’t get those dresses when I showed them).  I’m really bad at keeping secrets, though, so I’m hoping I can stick to the plan.

    I am not showing him the dress, but a few of my friends/bridesmaids have seen it.   We are all having fun teasing him about what the dress looks like.  My friends have said everything from Black spandex and feathers, to Hello Kitty wedding dress (google it)   He has his own come backs, including rocking a Shawn Conary from Zardo’s style for the wedding. 

    But really, he is taking it in stride, as he says he knows I have good style sense and would not pick out anything too hideous.  Only one person gets to see me in my full bridal look before the wedding, and that is my Maid/Matron of Honor, becuase she is way to honest, and I need that.

    He hasn’t seen my dress exactly but he was there with me when I was trying dresses on, so he saw me in the sample.

    @dancindavinci:   He won’t see the dress until we do our first look photos, the morning of our wedding.

    Oh no! No no no. And you know why? Because I knew he’d love it and I wanted the first time he saw it to be on me, on our wedding day. I think he knew what color it was, since it’s the color I’d always planned on wearing for my wedding dress, but that’s about it.

    I never showed him pictures or anything, but last weekend he said he knows me so well that he bets he can guess what it looks like… And he described my exact dress haha I just smiled and didn’t say anything, but he knows he is close. “simple, semi-fitted, and beautiful” *swoooooooon*

    I asked him if he wanted to see what I was considering before I bought it. He did, so I showed him photos. And the dress ended up hanging in his mancave for a few months before the wedding. I really didn’t care whether he saw it or not.

    He really surprised me by not wanting to see my dress.  We normally share everything with each other and I normally seek his opinion so it’s killing me.  He’s not showing me what he’s wearing either.  I know it’s a suit but I don’t know anything else about it.  I guess we’ll both be surprised when I walk down the aisle.  I just hope it’s a happy surprise.  

    I asked him last night what kind of dress he thinks I bought.  He said he doesn’t think it’s a mermaid dress but he’s guessing ivory.  That he even knowws what a mermaid dress is means he has been paying a little bit of attention when I watch SYTTD which is hilarious.  (My dress is ivory and it’s a mermaid)

    I showed him the Stock photo of my dress.  And I also sneakily showed him my picture of me in my dress with my head cut off here on WB.  So he has seen it one me just not knowing it was on me Wink

    @dancindavin I showed my guy a pic and said “would you be ok if I wore something like that” cause it isnt traditional and I needed to gauge how he’d feel.

     

    if I’d already bought the dress and couldn’t/ wouldn’t return it I wouldn’t show him 🙂

    Not married yet but I did show him pictures of dresses including the dress I bought. He liked it, bc…well he loves anything fitted, lol! I actually showed him lots of pics of it bc it is a Pronovias White One gown that we knew was not in the budget. I just so happened to find it on tradesy for less than $250 new with tags! He still sees me looking at the dress all the time but he has no idea that’s the gown I got for a super duper discount. He also thinks he saw it in the bag but he didn’t. It is in my mom’s closet in the secret compartment I found. My mom has a random dress in a clear garment in front of the secret section. He saw that dress and said, ‘why is your dress so wrinkled?’ lol!

    @dancindavinci:  He has seen my dress.  His input was important, so he helped me pick a dress.  I don’t think it will take away at all from wearing it on our wedding day.  He has not seen the accessories, or how my hair and makeup will be done.  So I still think it will be surprising for him.
