    No, he saw the dress for the first time when I was coming down the aisle/at the first look.

    Yes, he saw a picture of the dress (on a mannequin or model).

    Yes, he saw me in the dress (picture or in person).

    Yes, he went dress shopping with me.

    He saw the dress because I needed to steam it the night before. I think clothes do look different on a body vs a hanger, but I’m not terribly traditional or superstitious anyways.

    I didn’t particularly want him to see it, but after agonizing all day after going dress shopping about whether I should snap up the $99 bargain dress or splurge on a $975 dress I broke down and showed him pictures of me in both dresses so he could help me decide. I’m glad I did because I trust his opinion when it comes to how clothes look on me, plus he knows me well enough to know I’d probably have regretted spending nearly $1k on a dress, so his confirmation that the $99 one looked great on me sealed the deal. I was able to go back to the store and nab it before it sold out. I hope it’ll look different enough on the day of the wedding once I’m all made up, have a veil, and aren’t smirking like I was in the dress shop pic.

    my Fiance down right refuses to even discuss my dress with me. I just happened to mention how I was worried about it fitting and he completly cut me off saying he didnt want to know anything about it until the day. I’ve never known someone be that blunt about it to be honest! I would never give away what my dress is like to him, but he doesnt want to hear anything about it, not the smallest detail.

    I showed Fiance pictures of me in several dresses (all the no’s) and I had mixed in the one I picked as well. He was able to guess right away with how excited I was in the photo!! OOOPS oh well!!

    I don’t know whether I should show him or not. I showed him a lot of the ones I didn’t pick. Then the first dress that I was going to choose, I ended up returning it because I thought he wouldn’t like it. Then I showed him and he said he liked it!!! Gahhhh, now it’s too late because I don’t want to pick that dress because he already saw it.

    My Fiance was actually the only person that went with me to buy. It was a pleasant experience. I knew he would like anything, so truly, the only opinion I had to listen to was my own. We went to eat at a resteraunt we’d never been before (we had to go out of town a little) and made a day of it. It’s a day I’ll never forget and that was really special to me. 🙂

    DoubleA903:  He doesn’t want to see it, hear about it, or know anything. He wants to be totally surprised. His brother asked me about it and asked how I was doing my hair for the wedding and my Fiance yelled ‘Dude! I’m right here! Stop asking questions, I don’t want to hear any of this!” lol. I really, really want to show him a picture of it because I’m having major dress regret and I know hearing him tell me I look beautiful would totally put my mind at ease (even if he hates it, he’d tell me he loves it lol).

    He’s actually seen a picture of it without knowing though. I was searching on the internet for pictures of a certain tux color. I found the tux I really liked and showed him a picture of the bride and groom. But he doesn’t know that the bride in the picture just happened to be wearing my dress!

    Yes, he saw it hanging up. We eloped, so he saw it when we were packing to travel and unpacking at the hotel. It wasn’t that big of a deal to me.

    My DH saw the sleeve of my dress before the wedding because it had to be altered and I HATED the alteration it changed the part of the dress I brought it for I was so up set I ended up sobbing in front of him about two weeks before the wedding so he insisted on seeing that part so he could reassure me. I still hated it but he made me feel much better

    Splodge2003:  my Fiance is the exact same way! He refuses to see it, wants to know nothing about it, the style or anything.. Says he wants to be completely surprised! He’s also very superstitious so I’m sure that’s part of it…
