    I think its nice to have him wait and see it on your wedding day.

    Darling Husband was picky about the type of dress I got so I was a little worried when I went shopping. But I found one I loved, it was “me”. I knew Darling Husband would love it too.

    And at the wedding he told me numerous times how much he loved it and how beautiful it was… I think it’s worth the wait 🙂

    I showed my Fiance a bunch of pics of dresses I liked. He HATED the one I loved. I kept shopping and found my current dress and ordered it without showing him what it looked like. I showed him it when I got it (we live together), he said “You look awesome!”. It was cute.

    Fiance is super opinionated.  We’d watched several wedding shows and he always had an opinion about the dress.  Fearing that he wouldn’t like what I liked I had Fiance go through a David’s Bridal book.  He pointed out the aspects of dresses that he hated.  It gave me a clearer idea of things to avoid, while still finding a dress I love.

    I’ve also enlisted the opinion of my best guy friend to get the male perspective on a few dresses.  It’s helped, but in the end I really feel like it’ll be 100% my decision.

    He doesn’t want to see or talk about anything that has to do with dresses.  He wants it to be a surprise.

    I did! 

    I didn’t have anyone else to go with me because all of my family and friends live out of state, so I decided to bring him along. I tried on a few dresses for him and was able to get honest feedback from him and see what dresses he thought looked best on me. I made a decision without telling him which dress I picked, so he really has no idea what my dress will look like on the big day. No regrets! Wink

    Mr. C was very adamant about not seeing the dress before the wedding! He would never have come with me! But if I was having a hard time finding something, I might have considered asking him to come.

    I took Fiance with me.  His is the only opinion that matters and I want to be beautiful for him.  We picked the dress that I loved and that took his breathe away.

    I trust his taste and he trusts mine…we want to have the traditional “reveal” as I come down the aisle.  We do look at different dresses and I see what elements he may or may not like, but ultimately the dress is my decision, with his idea of what he’d like to see me in, in mind!

    To each his/her own…it’syour your day, make/break your own tradition!!

    i was a little nervous about him not seeing it because he’s an opinionated guy. i had an idea what type of silhouettes he liked/didn’t like, but i was still a little nervous about not having his ok (because of the “layers” on my dress. hard to explain). but because of the way it hugged my body, i was pretty sure he’d love it. i was right. 🙂
