This is a slippery slope. Imagine if he goes through pictures and tells you one’s he doesn’t like and one of them happens to be yours. It would break your heart. I would tell him how serious this is to you.

Tell him he’s not allowed to see the dress before the wedding, so if he finds it he’s just have to buy you a new one. Makes his efforts futile and has monetary consquenes, muhuahahaha

@blinx:  I think its cute that he wants to see the dress! Are you doing a first look? Maybe you can just show him a picture of it, and not you in it, or the dress IRL so he can get a taste, but it wouldn’t be the same as seeing you all dolled up on the wedding day

My Fiance hates waiting so he really wants to see mine too 🙂 I showed him the ones I tried on but didn’t buy, but he still wants to see mine…too bad! haha

@lionskitty:  Very creative response! Also, I agree that she should not bring the dress to her house when it arrives.

I also agree with @mwitter80:.  Your FI needs to understand how important this truly is to you.

(not really an etiquette question, more tradition, but…)

Could you lie to him, show him a dress that isn’t your dress? If you aren’t comfortable with that, I would simply try to explain to him how emotionally-loaded the whole thing is to you and that you will be devestated if he sees the dress before the wedding. He probably doesn’t understand what a big deal it is for you.

@blinx:  he made you wait until he was ready to propose to see the ring, right? so now it’s his turn to wait.
