  • poll: What would you do in this situation?

    Wear the dress already purchased (Maggie Sottero Lacey) - he probably already forgot how it looks!

    Switch to Dress #2 w/o stripes

    Switch to Dress #3 in ivory

    Switch to Dress #4

    Keep looking!

    Other (please post)

    thegoods:  Seriously, your Fiance will not remember and nothing will compare to the day of the wedding. Stick with your dress.

    There is no way that I would replace the dress just because he glanced at a picture of it. My Fiance and I both feel really strongly about him not seeing the dress before the ceremony but, honestly, in that situation, I seriously doubt that he would even remember what it looked like besides the fact that it’s white. 

    Also, your dress looks gorgeous on you!

    thegoods:  Unless your wedding is this weekend there is enough time with picking out other details for the wedding that he wont remember exactly what it looked like. Showing him the other dresses may also help but i wouldnt stress over it.

    Stop buying dresses! The maggie is the best. Whether or not he remembers what the dress looks like (which he won’t), the wow moment will still be there. When you have hair and make up and a veil on, etc that’s where the magic happens.

    Who cares if he saw it?

    I don’t get that whole thing…you still werent all done up and put together with hair and make up and your veil….. I showed my fiance a pic to make sure he liked it. Plus I’m Jewish and we will have done our photos even before the ceremonyso when I walk down the aisl he will have seen me for hours lol.

    LIke really? You’re going to spend a ton of money because he saw it for a moment. He’s a guy! They all look the same anyways! Where what makes you happy.

    I am married and even now when I ask my husband about my dress he could tell you it was white, flowy and strapless, but that is about it! I wouldn’t sweat it 🙂

    Stick with Lacey! That first dress is definitely the most flattering! And seeing a pic of you in the store is very different from him seeing you ‘all jacked up’ (thanks SYTTD) On the day of the wedding. You could let him stare at that photo for hours and it won’t diminish the wow factor of seeing you for the first time on your wedding day.

    My fiance has accidentally seen some pics of my dress too. I just think of it as a tease for the real thing!

    My fiance also saw the picture of me in my dress, but to him it is just another white dress, he has probably forgotten the details already.


    The dress is just part of the whole picture, when you have your hair done, your jewels on, your makeup on, it will look 100% different. He hasn’t seen the half of it. If that is the one you love, you should keep it!
