    No way! And he is afraid to comment on any dresses I show him for fear it might be mine and he would say the wrong thing. 🙂

    Well, since I’m already married, of course he’s seen it now.  However, I didn’t show him a photo of the dress or me in it beforehand.  In fact, it was important to him that the entire dress was a complete surprise.  It was funny because I think he expected somethign completely different, so it really was a big surprise! 

    I’m happy I kept it a secret from him, because our First Look moment was really special.  I did show pretty much everyone else though…;)

    I wanted to show it, but he is completely superstitious about the whole thing.  Nearly every night, I say, "Hey baby, wanna see my dress?"  and I jump up to open the bag.  He always turns away freaking out.  It’s a really fun game!

    He didn’t see my gown before the wedding day, even though it sat in our house for a week before the wedding.  He didn’t even want to help me carry the gown from the house to the car for fear he’d see it through the white bag it was in!

    He hasn’t seen it. We both want him to be surprised.  

    However, about a month ago I had a mini panic attack that my dress would look like his ex-wife’s wedding dress. I didn’t really think it would, since I think hers was a $10,000 couture dress and mine is … really not (although I love it!). But still, you worry. So I asked him to describe her dress and thankfully it sounds absolutely nothing like mine. So he does know it doesn’t look anything like hers … 🙂

    I hadn’t planned on him seeing it, but he has! Far from freaking me out, it’s relieved so much stress. I showed him pictures from when I went dress shopping without telling him which one I bought, cleverly thinking I’d left out the real one I bought. Well, he saw it and deduced that it was the one, because my sister was talking about the champagne color & it was the only champagne dress I tried on!

     I only found out because I started having 2nd thoughts and lamenting about it to my Fiance. He kept reasuring me, but I didn’t believe it. He always helps me decide on outfits & I said that I wished I could just show it to him so I’d know (he’s always very honest, like "that length makes your legs look short"). Then he said, "Well, do you want to know the truth? I saw it in the pictures already – and you really look great!"  

    I feel so much better now!

    Mr. Peng didn’t see my dress beforehand but I wanted to show it to him a couple times, and he said no. I am not good at keeping secrets!!!

    He came to pick it out with me! Some people thought it was a little weird, but he and I have extremely similar tastes & he doesn’t mind shopping. I ask his opinion about most clothing purchases, so why should this be any different? It was huge on me (even with the clips), so it will look extremely different (and much better) once it is made for me. He won’t be seeing it again until the wedding!

    He will never see it before the big day.  Not a chance!

    I’m so undecided on my two favorites I just showed him both online – and he wouldn’t really give a straight answer!

    doctorgirl – you made me laugh out loud haha

    fontgoddess – I never thought of that…eh…I’ve hoped that any options I’ve given him as far as locations he would tell me if it was the same place. But I haven’t said anything. hmm.

    But back to the subject. No way. I think I would cry if my fiance saw my dress. I mean I wish I could since I’m stuck on 2 and he does give me opinions on clothes but no can do. I really would probably cry. lol

    like the pole stated "HECK NO" nope, nope nope!

    he knows ‘aspects’ about it, such as its not white, or that its not puffy.

    thats about it!

    I have no intention of him seeing it until the big day! 🙂

    @Doctorgirl: My Fiance and I have the same game!  I even tried to convince him to go dress shopping with me in the beginning.  My dress has been in the guestroom closet for the past few months & will be for the next year, so I’ll have many more opportunities to tease him about it!!
