Just tell her, “Hey, I ordered the dress, but I want everyone to be surprised, so I’m keeping it under wraps.”

And if your wedding is in June 2012, “ordering” now is plenty of time.

@Seaside: I would just say ‘oh I ordered that one I wanted’ because technically that’s true.  If she asks when you ordered it I’d come clean though, don’t lie about, that never gets people anywhere!  Congrats on ordering your dress btw <3

I agree… just go the “ordering” route… if she asks to see it just tell her that you are keeping it a secret from everyone!

You could say you found a perfect unworn dress online and just ordered it… price was right, couldn’t wait in case it got snatched up, etc….

You could always say you were out with your Mom and saw a bridal shop so you popped in to browse and found “the one” and ordered it. I also like what someone else said about wanting to keep it a surprise.

I agree that you should just mention that you ordered it. It might help if you bring up the subject instead of waiting for her to so that she doesn’t feel like you never would have told her (even though that’s kind of the case, lol). While I agree coming clean is the right thing to do and lying would be a little risky, I probably wouldn’t have the nerve if we’re being honest.

Definitely say somehing soon though, so it still makes sense for you to be ordering it – and so you don’t have to stress about this anymore!

I agree–Just tell her that in the end, you wanted to keep the dress as a surprise and ordered it without showing anyone else–wait. is that true? haha
