    I voted stay with the same dress. 4-5 months from now, I’m sure his memory won’t remember every detail and when he sees YOU in it it’ll be a completely different experience for him!

    If you really really love it, buy it! You could also tell your Fiance that you bought a different dress and then surprise him on the wedding day with the dress he already saw. Did he actually see it on you or just on the hanger? It will always look different on…

    Don’t even stress it cause he’s so not going to remember.

    @Thorns-n-Roses:  It sounds like you really love this dress, and you’ve managed to really luck out with the girl in your area with dress regret.  Seriously … That’s something most people wish would happen for them!

    I say go ahead and buy the dress you love.  I agree with previous posters … Dresses always look different on the hanger, and your fiance likely won’t even remember much about what it looked like anyway.

    @Thorns-n-Roses:  definitely don’t worry about it! If you want, don’t let him know anything more about your choices and keep those secrets from now on since the dress he saw may or may not look the same on you & etc.

    I don’t think its bad! I purposely tricked Darling Husband into telling me his thoughts on my dress (through a fun game I called “tell me what you think!” where I showed him dresses of all kinds and asked his thoughts) and he asked me on our wedding day if the dress I wore was one of them… I said YES! muahahaha and he couldn’t remember but definitely liked it on the day! 

    Go try on that gown!  It might not even be what you want so you never know – definitely never hurts to try (and get a great deal!) on a gown you’re in love with in print… just be warned that it might be different in real life (as my experience shows!)

    @Thorns-n-Roses:  Congrats on your purchase! I think you definitely made the right call in buying the dress. Can’t wait to see pics of it on you!

    Go for the same dress as you love it! If he’s a typical guy, he won’t recognize it at all!!
