My fiance is going to love my dress – my boobs look huge (covered, but huge nonetheless) and it’s very fitted. And white. I wanted to wear a grey or printed dress, but I got a white one for him.
So yeah, I’m confident he’ll like it. I’m a little concerned that my grandma’s going to hate it, but oh well.

@KristenGotMarried: Lol. Now I wonder what might make your grandmother upset, but that’s why it’s YOUR wedding, and not your grandmother’s! If it makes your FI’s jaw drop, that’s what matters 🙂
I was worried enough that I sent model pics of my short list (not of me in them) to my Fiance. I just wanted to make sure that I wasn’t out to lunch, because I acutally got a list of styles I was NOT to wear: anything with lace (it would get wrecked on the beach), anything that looked “froofy” (ballroom skirts, toilet paper rolls, poodle skirts, etc), and absolutely NO empire waists. He was firm on empire waists. I don’t blame him… I’m petite and hourglass shaped and I DO NOT do empire waists well, so that was an easy choice. He also asked that I look for something tea length as we are marrying on a beach but I wanted a long dress.

We went through of some of the collections of my fave designers together and I asked him to tell me specifically what he did and did not like about the dress. Bottom line was he likes ball gowns that have the tablecloth effect without too much of that “stuff.” He is pretty traditional when it comes to attire where I am not! But he loves me for me so if I choose the crazy poufy trumpet than so be it!
And like PP said he is clueless. At a friend’s wedding who had the “stuff” all over her skirt and a jeweled bodice he said he liked her dress. Clueless…

I tend to be fairly indecisive on most things that don’t matter much to me and I was this way when intiially shopping for a dress. I asked my honey’s opinion about some that were “inspirational dresses” or preliminary dresses online and he seemed to like any and all that I picked out, noting that the dress wasn’t of much importance to him. It was what was inside the dress that concerned him. Aww..so true, though. When I did find my dress, I didn’t need anyones’ feedback. I didn’t ask friends or family what they thought because I finally had an opinion and didn’t need to borrow theirs. My fiance did see it hanging in the window when she arrived, as I was relacing the back, and his response was incredible. Our grooms will love us through thick n’ thin, sickness n’ health. Your dress will be the last thing on his mind, aside from that it shows off the woman he loves. 🙂

- Wedding: June 2011 - Sydney, Australia
Mr. Jag had NO idea about what dress I was wearing – and I loved it that way. I was so glad he loved it at the end. Said it was absolutely stunning: what more can a bride ask for?

For my first marriage, I took the groom with me when I went dress shopping. I figured he was going to look at the dress more than I was, so it was important to me that we both liked it.
For my second marriage, I omitted the groom. (It was a same-sex wedding.) We shopped for our dresses together, because we wanted them to coordinate.

I asked my then-fiance if he had any preferences the night before I first went dress shopping, and he said that he really hated a lot of beading or crystals or bling. Which….. had me totally rethinking what I was planning on looking for! So I ended up with a plainer dress than I had originally anticipated, but I’m glad I did — it looked really classic (and I wore sparkly jewelry to get the bling!). On our wedding day, he kept telling me how gorgeous I looked and how much he liked the dress, though he was so elated all day long that I’m not sure how many details he really took in.
