My Fiance has seen a picture of the dress I think I’m going to buy, although it was on a model not me. He’s seen a few and he doesn’t know which one I’m going to choose. I’m planning to keep it a secret, but finding it soooo hard… I really want to know if he’s going to like it before I pick! But I’m trying to be strong 😛

It is extreamly difficult to keep the dress a secret. I also want my Fiance to see it really badly, but will wait til the ceremony.

SO has not seen the dress and will definitely not see it before the wedding! Only my parents, my maid of honor and 2 friends that went shopping for my dress saw it. It’s a close guarded secret!

After watching more than a few episodes of Say Yes to the Dress, I realized that Fiance is very picky with wedding dresses-he didn’t like ANY of them on the show, ever. So, I started showing him dresses I liked online (stock photos or of the dress on real brides-not me) and he was STILL picky. He didn’t like lace, anything too mermaid-y, anything puffy, anything bedazzled…and yes, it’s my dress, but I obviously want to please both of us. So, I found a dress that when I saw the picture online I KNEW I’d love it in person and it would look awesome on. Fiance loved the dress in pics, and when I went to try it on, I did the ugly crying face because I loved it! So, he knows what dress I got but hasn’t seen it on me (and won’t until the wedding day).

Im keeping my dress a secret, not because I’m superstitious, but because I want to surprise Fiance – I want to make him go WOW! The only problem is, I’m worried that he won’t like it (I think he’d prefer me in something more fitted) and I can’t show it to him to get his opinion 🙁

my Fiance is the same! I was shocked. We’re both so non traditional, and our wedding is going to be a reflection of that. I was not expecting him to be so traditional with regards to my dress.

We shopped together and he was there when I tried on my dress when it came in.
For us, I think it makes more sense to have our special “firsts” in private. Fiance doesn’t like to emote in front of other people. I definitely get a better sense of how he feels if I don’t spring things on him in public. I don’t want all that special stuff to get lost on our wedding day because he’s afraid that other people are going to see his feelings, or just because there’s so much stuff going on that we can’t possibly react to everything.

Once we decided that we were going to do pictures before the ceremony and see each other before the ceremony I decided it didn’t matter anymore. Besides – you can show a guy a dress all you want….it won’t even come close to what he sees on the actual day

I was ok with it, but Dh did NOT want to see it until the wedding day. I wasn’t bothered either way 🙂

@MsGinkgo: I haven’t gotten married yet, but I keep showing Fiance my likes and wants. He hates pretty much everything I like. Lol. But I think we’ve almost come to terms with one together. I just cant try it on since the closest it is to me is in CA and I’m in WA. :/ So I either have to take the chance and buy it without trying it on, or finding a similar dress that I can try on. I didn’t vote since I haven’t bought a dress or got married yet.

@MsGinkgo: I plan NOT to show him but I hear you on it being hard. Oh the excitement!

@MsGinkgo: I think it should be a surprise. I took my fiance dress shopping and tried on diffwerent styles to see what he would like but I did not try on the actual dress i bought in front of him. He wants to be surprised.

Nope. didn’t show him…
BUT every Say Yes To The Dress episode that came on, I’d be studying his reactions to certain dresses…and then he’d say, “What? Is yours like that?”
Followed by…”Why do we have to watch this?!” Click. 😉

Nope I haven’t showed the dress to him. But the desire is super strong because I am excited just like PPs but we want to keep a little bit of traditionalism. I cannot wait to walk down the aisle!
