Have you discussed your dress with your Fiance, or even shown him pictures? Does he know you have one? My Fiance knows the designer of my dress and he even checked out their website and took a guess as to which one was mine! He guessed wrong but did pick a one that ismquite similar to mine!
I didn’t tell him anything else though! I’ll admit it’s hard, I want him to see it already!!

I have discussed my dress with my Fiance. I have not shown him pictures of the exact dress because I still want him to be surprised on our wedding day. However, I am just like you and find it so hard to keep it a secret because I just want to share everything with him. I have told him what style of dress it is so he knows it is not a big princess ball gown. He knows it is lace, not white, and strapless. Overall, without seeing a picture I don’t think my man can really even envision what I’m telling him. Men are visual beings and I don’t think discussing it with him is going to ruin the surprise lol!

My mom came in from out of state a few weeks ago to go dress shopping with me and she stayed with us, so he knows we bought one. Other than that, it’s going to be a total surprise!

My Fiance has seen pictures of me in my dress. We’re not traditional.

My Fiance knows zero about my dress. That is the one thing he will not know until our wedding day.

I bought mine months before we got engaged, which he knew about, but it’s been so hard to keep it from him for so long and I still have over a year haha. I’ve shown him a picture, but it was mixed in with other dresses, and mine was the only one that he said he actually liked. My dress in Pnina Tornai so we all know she has some crazy ass dresses, and I’ve showed him several of her dresses and he always talks about how weird they are so I think he’s going to be pleasantly surprised with mine!

He’s seen the stock photo of the dress – I showed him that to get his opinion before I bought it. He hasn’t seen me in the dress though.

He picked it out online, so he has seen it. I know he doesn’t remember what it looks like because I brought it up online, again, in front of him, and he said, “Oh, that’s a nice dress. Is that what you got?” -_- men

My Fiance knows the color and has seen the trip on the train. He also knows what I paid or, what he paid. 😉

I discussed silhouettes and necklines with him. He was not a fan of the trumpet or the ballgown. However, he like the A-Line, fit & flare
and loved the princess. I haven’t started looking, but now I know what NOT to get.

He has no idea what my dress looks like! At first it was really hard to keep it secret because I tell him everything and especially when I am really excited about something! But now I am looking forward to surprising him. 🙂 I am not a super traditional person so it’s not for tradition’s sake, but more so that I just wanna totally shock him!

I love reading all these! I agree with the general consensus that men are visual and can’t really picture our descriptions anyways or can’t picture us in the dresses. Him seeing me for the first time is honestly one of the things I’m most looking forward to. Eek

the dress shop I bought it from posted a pic of me in it, and he commented on it… then when I went to pick it up and try it on he was with me. It’s hanging in our closet in Texas until I move down and I get it fitted for our big day. I honestly feel that he probably will have forgotten what it’ll look like until the big day 🙂

oh wow you’re brave! The only one on this thread who has let her guy see it in person. Was he emotional when he saw you in it?
