YES. He says I am beautiful and will look good in anything but he has an opinion and has used it before so my fear is he won’t like SOMETHING like my hair or how my makeup is but the biggest fear is the dress.

I think if your Fiance knows your style, he will probably have an idea as to what your dress will look like.  You’re his bride so you will be beautiful!

@Seashells7:  No! IMO Guys don’t know that little details that we ladies worry about, aren’t fashion-oriented and I know Fiance just sees white and his eyes glaze over.

We were at a wedding last year, I did NOT like the dress, Fiance doesn’t remember it at all.  I know (hopefully) he’ll be paying more attention to MY dress, but he likes the way I dress day to day so I have no worries about wedding dres ๐Ÿ™‚

Men are pretty easily swayed.  They think one thing and then they see us and BOOM, its perfect.  Don’t worry about it.  He will love it becayse youre wearing it.

No. I think the day will be so overwhelming and they will have hearts and stars in their eyes and the dress details really won’t matter. I doubt any man will say “Boy, my wedding day was great, but my bride would have looked so much better if she had less bling on her dress, a different bodice and a shorter veil.” or whathaveyou

I was worried because every dress I showed him that I liked before I went shopping he didn’t like, so i started showing him different dresses and learnt what he does like. He didn’t like lace he wanted me to get something smooth. So I tried on both at the store and thanks to him I think I ended up getting a dress Iprobably wouldnt have even thought to try before. So in a nutshell I was worried but now im not. I think I got something we both will love.

No! I really don’t think you should waste time worrying about this. When we sees you that day the last thing he’ll be thinking it is “gee, I wish she chose a different dress style”. He’s going to think you look beautiful in anything you choose.

@Zellywelly:  All the time!!! LOL but i know he’ll love the dress i choose probably not the color but it think the details on the dress are different enough for him to look pass the fact that it’s a white dress LOL

Seashells!! I am so happy to be here with you on the other side ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ I made it girl lol


I know how you feel because I am kind of torn between dresses. I absolutely love a big poufy ballgown however I think my Fiance would prefer something a bit tighter to the body. At the end of the day you have to love it and feel comfortable with it on. I agree that men are easily swayed once he sees you in whatever dress you chose he will love it. What type of gown did you get?

YES! Fiance has some strong opinions when it comes to wedding dresses. I showed him a picture of the dress I ended up choosing before I tried it on and bought it (Website’s stock photo). He doesn’t know I got that dress, but he liiked it, so hopefully he’ll love it on me.

This is the only thing I am not worried about. He has said he isn’t too bothered as long as we get married because that is really what the day is about. Although he has said he doesn’t like veils because he doesn’t see any need for them.

YES! i think he wants something more simple, and i want a big ruffled wedding dress, I think he wants something like a plain knee high dress with pockets, and thinking about our wedding, I think that what he likes is more suitable for the ocation (we are getting married in a forrest) But honestly I have no idea what to do!

Well, I’ve thought about it but with my fiancé I could change dresses 4 times during the ceremony and he probably wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. He is pretty oblivious like that.

If he has said he likes similar dresses you should be fine ๐Ÿ™‚ And no matter what he loves you!!!


That said, I was wavering between two dresses and totally bought the form fitting sexier one because I knew Fiance would like it better and that it will make him grin ear to ear. I know whatever I wear he’ll be feeling lucky to marry me on the day of, but I wouldn’t mind if he says “Damn!” out loud when I walk into the ceremony space. Of course if I didn’t also like the dress (as I said, I was on the fence between two) and feel comfortable in it I never would have picked it.
