I picked out my dress without my Fiance being there but he has seen the dress on numerous occassions. I don’t think it diminshes the “day of” feeling when I’m walking down the aisle on our wedding day because that scenario is completely different than him seeing the dress hanging up in our closet.

My dress will be a surprise. I have been so tempted, so many times, to show it to him but I’ve managed to keep it a secret.

It is a cultural thing here that if your Fiance sees the dress before the wedding day it is bad luck, so the majority of the grooms see the dress on the day of the wedding.

I would hate for my fiancee to see my dress! In fact, I’m super duper paranoid that once I had the urge to post my dress photos on this site, and thought he may somehow see since he knows my username! Ha!

But…I see grooms with the brides on SYTTD all the time, so to each their own, I guess!

But it just seems that it would be so less magical that way. I want his eyes to light up when he sees me walking down the aisle, not knowing what to expect of my dress/accessories/hair/whatever. It’s the same reason that we probably won’t be doing pictures before the wedding, but choosing to take a gap between the ceremony and the reception.

My fiance picked my dress. I was actually showing him a diffferent dress and he asked me to try on the dress and I liked it and he smiled BIG and I bought it

My honey is in Afghanistan and can’t see my dress, thankfully! But, we did look online at pictures of dresses over Skype. The thing is that he may have seen it in a picture on someon else, but not on meKeith me all done up. So I am notworried about it at all, if anything he will feel even mor excited because hedoesn’t know it until I walk down the aisle but he helped me to pick out my dress.

My Fiance didn’t come with me dress shopping but I showed him some dresses I might try on at my appt the night before.  I wanted his opinion, after all I do want him to think I’m stunning as I walk down the aisle not “what the hell is she wearing?!” I’m glad I did that cause some of the dresses I showed him that I liked, he did not like at all. 

He saw a picture of the dress after I bought it and actually saw the dress(cause I came home with it the day I bought it).  He just hasn’t seen ME in it.  Honestly though, knowing him and his memory, he has already forgotten exactly what the dress looks like so it will be like a total surprise anyways, lol.  At least I know he really liked it in the pictures I showed him.

Mine picked mine out actually. He saw it first and loved it so I tried it on and voila. He has also seen the hairaccessory and shoes. We are kind of unconventional. He is my best friend and weighs in on other fashion decisions so for me, it felt weird and hard to have to hide this from him for months!

I bought my dress online and he was with me in picking it out. It’s hanging in our shared closet right now, so he has seen it. But he hasn’t seen me in it.

He and I have looked online at dresses together, and so I know what he likes..but he won’t know what dress I actually choose until the wedding day 🙂

When I got married the first time, he didn’t come with me to pick it out, but he did see it hanging in the apartment after I had it back from alterations. I didn’t care. How I looked in it was different that how it looked on a hanger. It just wasn’t a big deal to me.


This time, I bought a little white strapless sundress and it’s hanging in our closet. It’s no big secret to me this time either.
