This must be a US/Canadian thing of showing off your dress, or a picture of your dress, or choosing a dress together right? 38% of you – Crazy!!
I think this is pretty unheard of in the UK? I have never heard of a single case of someone showing their dress (picture, dress alone, or trying on the dress) before the big day. I think if you did a poll for UK people, it would be 0%.
Then again – the dress reveal thing before the ceremony is quite common in the US?

We picked out our wedding clothes together. We will walk down the aisle together, and probably get dressed together.

I was told very specifically that he does NOT want to see the dress until the wedding day. Not only that – he doesn’t want to know anything about it so I have to be cautious as to what I say!
I think it’s very sweet – though if he hadn’t said anything he’d have seen me in it by now

We picked out my dress and his tux together. We’re best friends, so of course I would want his opinion.

Nope the first he will see it will be at the ceremony as I walk down the aisle towards him.

I hadn’t planed on showing him until the day of, but that’s changed slightly. He won’t see it until I’m walking down the aisle. I thought about doing a first look to save time, but our photog is super quick with pictures (and gets manages to get amazing ones!) and really prefers not to do them so there’s no need. Doesn’t bother me at all!

I was planning on taking pictures once I go dress shopping, and when I get a dress or find one I want, I will show him several pictures of dresses, one of them being the one I actually bought/want. So he will see it, but not know which it is. The reason for this is I want his opinion, but I still want it to be a surprise.

I have shown my Fiance a picture of every dress that I have tried on that I liked. So, yes, he has seen me in THE dress, but he doesn’t know that it’s THE dress..

I wasn’t sure i wanted to do a first look until i saw this thread.
This whole time i tried to figure out a way to take photos in between our ceremony and the reception, which is only one hour not to mention its in the evening at sunset.
After reading some of the comments, and researching online a bit, i think that there are so many advantages to First Looks. I think i may have changed my mind 🙂
p.s – Check out these pics. A private moment you two will get to experience. Beautiful!

Darling Husband is always the one I consult with regarding clothes and fashion because really, he spends more time looking at me than I do myself. So when it came to my wedding day look, it was no exception. He helped me pick out the dress (it was more him than me, actually) and everything that went along with it. I really wouldn’t have it any other way and it was no less special because the first time he really saw it ALL together (hair, makeup, jewelry, dress, shoes, etc.) was at our First Look.

My husband (and oddly enough, my dad) was adamant about not seeing it or knowing anything about it until I was walking down the aisle. He wanted it to be a total surprise.

I want his opinion so badly but he refuses to look at it!! He doesn’t even want to see my veil, my shoes, or any of my accessories!!

He’s going to David’s Bridal with me to try on dresses, though I’m not going to actually pick the dress while he is there. I’m going to order it another day. I want him to get excited about the dresses he sees me in and then surprise him with the one I actually choose.

Nope, but I bloody walked in to his office to ask him if he had some cash when I had my hair and makeup trial done – WHAT AN IDIOT!

@mockblock: This made giggle! This sounds like something my fiance would do.
