My Fiance saw a photo of me in my dress. I am torn between canceling my order and just dealing with the fact that he saw it. It isn’t so much that I am worried about the old wise tale but wanting my Fiance to be surprised when I walk down the aisle. What should I do?? Keep or cancel? I loved two dresses equally at the store…would you go with the other dress?

Keep it. come July he won’t remember what it looked like in the picture anyway! All he probably saw was a white dress. Come the wedding he will be totally stunned…

I think you should just keep it. I totally get why you’re concerned, but your Fiance is probably not going to remember what it looked like come July. My Fiance will ask if I’m wearing a new outfit… when I’ve worn it at least twice around him! I really doubt he’s going to remember.
Also, you are going to look so different when your hair and makeup are done, when your dress is fitted and when you’re walking down the aisle towards him.

keep it. I am assuming that it was either a cellphone photo or one that was downloaded on to your computer. Chances of what you look like in the picture compared to what you will look like on your wedding day are completely different. Does that make sense? I am not sure if I am explaining as clear as I am thinking it LOL

If it’s a matter of wanting to surprise your man, and not for traditions’ sake, then you should definitely keep it. Yes, he saw the dress (and he probably won’t even remember it!) but think about how much other things go into your special reveal, besides the dress; your hair, make-up, veil, etc. Just seeing a picture of you in the dress will be a million times different then seeing you walking down the aisle on your special day. Keep the dress. And maybe you’d like to lead him on into thinking that you did change it, and once again he will have no idea what to expect!

He saw a pic… but men do not remember things.
Besides you were not completely done up or anything… The effect it totally different the day of.

I completely agree. Keep the dress… you probably won’t find another one you are as in love with as this one anyways!

Did he just glimpse the picture or study it? If he’s anything like my man, he won’t even remember that it was a white dress by the time the wedding comes around. 🙂 Keep it!

he didn’t study it — but he saw it and knew he shouldnt have. he saw it on my iPhone which has pretty good picture quality. i have another dress in mind–i couldnt decide between the two at the store so i wouldnt be bummed if i replaced the original with it. i am just feeling silly if i do! i told him that i called and canceled the dress and he seemed as if he thought that was a good idea.
this is the one i bought:
this is the one i equally loved:

Hmm… Like most guys, I think your fiance will be seeing YOU, not the dress, when you get married… I think this is how guys think.
Also, the dress you might replace it with isn’t different enough from the first dress to justify it (if you’re only replacing it for your fiance’s sake).
I think you will look beautiful and happy and your fiance probably just saw “white dress” and that was it.

Keep it! Like others have said, he won’t remember what it looks like and even if he does, it won’t be the same when your hair and make-up are done. It’s a beautiful dress, btw.

Keep it – there’s no way he’s going to remember!! Plus, even if he did, what you look like in that pic will be NOTHING compared to how you’ll look like that day, walking towards him. I wouldn’t worry about it.

Keep it for all of the reasons already mentioned. It’s a beautiful dress, so don’t worry about it for even one second more! 🙂

Keep your original dress…they are so similar that he’d never know the difference anyways. Like the other Bees have said…you’ll look totally different on your wedding day. My FH saw a pic of me in my dress very briefly…and I was like “AAAHhhHHHHhhhh” and he looked away and said…”All I saw was a white dress” LOL I think you’re safe!
