    I showed them to my Fiance because I wanted to make sure he liked them.  The dress I loved was more than I felt comfortable asking the girls to pay (two bridesmaids are his sisters), so he said he would be fine paying towards them.  I figured since we were paying towards them, he should at least like them.  Well, as much as a man can “like” bridesmaids dresses.  

    He’s actually seen me try it on and one of his sisters tried hers on and he saw when we were visiting.

    I don’t think it matters too much.  Especially if your guy has opinions about how the wedding should look.  Plus, the girls’ dresses do tie in to what the groomsmen will wear.

    I don’t think I ever showed him… Not because I didn’t want to but because I knew he could care less… Hmm never thought about that before LOL

    I would show my SO the bridesmaid dresses if I were having bridesmaids. I think it would be fun and also I would like his opinion because he’s usually really honest with me when something is ulgy lol.

    I showed it to him because I wanted to share it with him. He pretty much liked every dress I showed him including the ones I hated lol.

    I showed him and never thought twice.  I was excited to check another thing off the to-do list and wanted to share.  I don’t really think there is a right or wrong in this situation.  I guess it’s really up to you, but personally I want my dress to be the only surprise so all the focus is on me ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I gave my BMs a color and let them choose their own style, as long as I approved it, but they all got what they wanted. I showed Darling Husband the color piece they gave me so he could get the tux color right but… honestly it never even occurred to me to show him any of the dresses. I’m not sure he even knew if they’d be long or short. I guess if he had asked I wouldn’t have had a problem showing him, but he just didn’t care at all about that level of detail so… no, he didn’t see them, I guess.
