Have you tried any of the dresses on yet?  You may be surprised by what you like.  I thought I was going to go for a knee-length strapless dress and I ended up with a full-length dress with kind of cap sleeves and a key hole back.  My Fiance really wanted to see me in a strapless dress so he’s a little disappointed, but he’ll get over it when he sees me walking down the aisle 🙂

I personally think you should go with what you love.  If you love what you’re wearing, you’re going to be confident and confidence creates beauty.  The glow you get on your wedding day will distract him from any feelings on the dress.

Have you asked him what his reaction would be if you wore a dress that he didn’t really like?  I did, my Fiance said, “You’re the one wearing it, you’re the one who should like it.  I’m sure I’ll like it the day of”

There’s a big difference between a photo of a dress on an oft-sullen model and a bride radiating with joy. He will think you are gorgeous regardless of the dress you pick.

I would totally go for what you love! I have made my Fiance watch SYTTD with me just to get an idea of what he likes and they are completely different from the dress that I actually bought. What it comes down to is what you feel beautiful in, not what your Fiance likes on a model. Guys really don’t have a clue about wedding dresses and once you are walking towards him on your wedding day he isn’t even going to realize that you are wearing a dress that he said looks like a “mummy”.

Honestly, your Fiance wil think you look great on your wedding day even if you showed up in a white sack. Go with what you feel amazing in.

Go with what you feel best in. I was a bit worried that my husband would hate my dress/think it was weird, but he thought I was the most beautiful woman in the world that day 🙂 He still comments on how beautiful I was, and how pretty my dress was. I say go for it – he will think you are gorgeous no matter what!

Get what you love, he’s never seen you in a wedding dress and wants to marry you, he’ll think you’re gorgeous!

Lucky for me when I showed MrJ pics of 5-6 different dresses before I tried them on he picked mine out of the bunch.  I didn’t buy it for him, though – I bought it because I love it and I feel dead sexy in it.

I have a soft A-line satin gown. I know my fiance loves lace, and I do too, but I couldn’t find one that worked in budget. So, I went for the dress that I like and look amazing in. I agree with PPs that you should go with the dress you like, and the confidence and beauty that you feel will be clearly evident to your groom.

@Ms.GoodEarth:  I agree with your advice. Once he sees you in the dress, the dress won’t even matter. He’ll think you’re gorgeous no matter what, and he’ll end up liking the dress too!

See the problem is that men, they just don’t know. 🙂 I would say, go with your heart. Men don’t really understand a lot of accepts to fabric and the way it fits the body or drapes and hangs. I remember watching a SYTTD episode where a woman came back with her fiance because she’d bought a dress that he hated. The consultant put her in the dress she’d bought first, and when she came out in it, the fiance was all, “Oh that’s nice,” and she goes “But this was the one you hated!” So yeah, I think that proves my point. Your mom and future husband will be happy with what makes you happy on the day.

He is a dude.  There is no way he can think of how it would look ON you. Things alwasy look different on paper and he cant see past that.  Wear what you love and i guarentee he will love it too.

I think the gemma dress is definately more of a “girl hot” dress. Also, things look a lot  different in person than just seeing them in a picture, as far as the sheen, the movement of the fabric, and the feeling of it, so he may like it after all. I’m sure he’d want you to do what makes you most happy, although I personally would not feel good  getting a dress I knew Fiance was lukewarm about (which is why I probably won’t show him pics)
