I completely agree with tksjewelry. The dress always looks way better on a real bride. He will love you in it, I promise! I wouldn’t worry about it one bit.

Your groom with LOVE you on your wedding day – hands down I’m sure you could wear a paper bag and he’d love you.  It’s your wedding day!!  I would not recommend buying another (third??!) dress just to make him happy.  They always look better on you and once you’re all done up pretty he won’t even be able to tell that’s the same dress in the photo.  Guys won’t recognize that much detail and he’s probably already forgotten it if you asked him!

I feel your pain, my fiance said that he did not like my dress either (on the model!!) It makes a hugggeeee difference.  Most guys do not look at the details, they just glance.  If I saw a piece of clothing on a miserable, stick thin, hunched over model, I would not like it either at first look.  He will think that you are beautiful, don’t worry! Laughing

He’s going to love you in it, because it’s YOU! You’re going to look awesome that day!! The dress I just fell in love with, groom thought was “nice”. After he broke down all the components to the dress, our venue, my personality, etc. he finally said, “that dress is so you!”.

It bums me out when guys say they don’t like the dress their fiancee picked out.  I mean, what is he expecting to accomplish?!  You obviously love it since you bought it, and if it were me, I would be more hurt by how inconsiderate he was than anything.  I definitely wouldn’t run out and buy a new dress.

I don’t really understand men who have strong opinions on what women wear, anyway.  I don’t tell my husband how to dress, you know?

I think a dress vs. a bride in her wedding dress is totally different. He may not like the exact design, but on your wedding day, he will absolutely love the way you look, and most likely won’t even remember why he said he didn’t like it.

Remember, you make the dress beautiful– not the other way around.

I’m sure if I showed my husband a picture of the model in the dress, he wouldn’t remember it was the same as mine, and he would say he didn’t like it.

Also, they are always frowning, so that’s wierd

He’s going to see you in your dress, walking toward him and all else is going to slip away in his mind. It will be on you and how good you look and how much he loves you, ball gown or not.

I’m not sure which dress he made that comment about, but I’ve seen the Adorae on the model and thought it was okay.  Then I saw it on REAL brides and it looked GORGEOUS…enough for me to have dress envy.

Like other bees have said, as long as you feel beautiful and love it, I’m sure he will too.

1) YOU in the dress is totally different from the model in the dress

2) I think it’d have to be something really far out and away from the groom’s taste for him to actually dislike his bride in her gown. Seriously.

The most attractive thing ever is confidence. If YOU feel great in it, he’s going to feel great about you in it. Don’t let a passing comment send you to the bridal store! AND…once you have a dress STOP looking!!!!

I showed Darling Husband a picture of my dress on the model (I was way too excited and wanted to share with him!) and I don’t remember what comments he made, but he didn’t even remember it a couple months later as it got closer. Towards the end he was begging me to see it, but I told him if he doesn’t remember it is his fault and he’ll just have to wait to see me in it! (which was only like 2 weeks away at that point). He probably won’t remember either and will likely find you beautiful in anything. If you are really, really stressed though, then just go ahead and show him the dress on you if you have pics or take him with to try on dresses. If you want to keep it a surprise, let him pick 3 he likes and then keep the final one you choose secret. The whole bad luck thing is just silly, so if it makes YOU feel better to show him and get his opinion, then you definitely should!

He may not be crazy about the picture he saw but that’s because you weren’t in it! I had a similar situation. I decided to wear a birdcage veil for our wedding. One day, I was browsing through pictures of girls in birdcage veils looking for hairstyle inspiration and my hubby (then fiance) walked in and said, “God…she looks like she got caught in a fishnet.” Yeah… about my veil. I almost cried. But I wore it anyway because I LOVED it and I really really wanted to. Hubby ended up loving it too. He still looks at pictures from our wedding and says how beautiful I was. Don’t worry about it! I’m SURE your Fiance will love YOU in your dress 🙂

What do guys know about dresses anyways?  Seeing a dress in a picture on a model on a computer is TOTALLY different from seeing it on the woman you are marrying.  I’d take what he said with a grain of salt, because once he sees you walk down the aisle, he’ll think you are beautiful.  Best Wishes!

Just joined WB to get some advice on the same thing!!! Very similar situation as jeye7161…we were flipping through magazines and he actually said “that’s the worst one you’ve shown me.”  He has absolutely no idea it is my dress.  I almost burst out crying.  He generally likes my style and is positive about stuff so I was shocked. Am still upset but the comments make me feel better.
