@Tiffylove: I don’t know that it’s a rule or anything, but many brides like to keep their dress a secret from the groom. However, many couples are doing ‘first looks’ now, where you take photos before the ceremony to have more time with guests. Also, if he does go peeking (it should be in a garment bag, so he’d have to try to look) it won’t be the same as if you were wearing it, so not a huge deal.

One idea would be to check with the shop you’re ordering from or doing your alterations at. Mine held my gown for me for an entire year for only $1/month! Then it was safe from any pets or cooking smells. You could also see if there are any relatives or friends that you trust to hold it for you.

The groom is not meant to see your dress at all until your wedding day. Can your mum or a friend store the dress for you?
