You know, I got mad at a Bridesmaid who was showing people pictures of me in my dress at my shower.  I only took those pictures because my Mom couldn’t be there for my fitting!!

I just decided that they won’t remember and didn’t see the entire look.

I only want my Mom, bridesmaids, Future Mother-In-Law and Aunt to see it. Oh, and Fiance saw it before I bought it, but that doesn’t really count to me.

My mom has seen me in it. My Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man have seen a picture. I think those are the only people that know…

I am looking forward to the look on my fiance’s face when I walk down the isle!

Oh gosh, I’ve let so many people see it. A bunch of girls from my hometown, my bridesmaids, my mom, Future Mother-In-Law, Future Sister-In-Law, other random friends, some boyfriends of friends. I think my mom has showed some of her friends. I really don’t mind, to tell you the truth. As long as my Fiance doesn’t see it, then we’re golden.

So many people have seen mine.  My family my Fiance went with me to buy it.  I love that they were part of the decision

Lots of people have seen mine (mom, Future Mother-In-Law, sis, Bridesmaid or Best Man, aunts, grandma, coworkers, friends)!  The one person I won’t show is my fiance–I want it to be a surprise for him.

Ah! This is funny. I have one friend who wouldn’t even bring her bridesmaids to help pick it out, then I said "What If I get the Same One?" which freaked her out, so she showed me.

As for my dress, most of my bridesmaids, my mom, and a friend or two have seen it in person. I have showed my Future Mother-In-Law pictures as well as a few other girls. I can’t keep my mouth shut to my fiance so I am pretty sure he’ll know what it looks like (but still be blown away!) I am trying so hard, I just want to share my excitement with the world!

only my mom and my 2 sisters, my Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law have seen my dress and they loved it! I want to keep it as a secret to my dad, brother and of course my Fiance, who’s dying to know how it looks like, so he keeps asking me tricky questions about it!

I have shown my mom, MOH/sister, dad, and grandparents. The Fiance will not be seeing it before the big day. I want him to have that same moment that I had when I put it on and knew it was the one.

Only my Mama. No one else has or will see it until the day of! I’m so excited! I wish I could wear it ALL THE TIME!

Mom, Dad, and bridesmaids!!! I had to show them while they were over for our engagement party. I’ve had it since October, hanging downstairs…

I’m trying not to let anyone other than my mom and my two grandmothers see my gown. I think it will be nicer if there are limited people who can talk about it, so it doesn’t ruin the surprise.

All my Bm’s are probably going to see it

My Maid/Matron of Honor will definitely see it [as she’ll be doing alot of the shopping with me].

The groom will probably see it too despite superstitious traditions–his opinion is important to me.

The groom’s aunties will probably see it too as they are very handy ladies when it comes to sewing & whatnot, so depending on varying alteration costs one of them may end up doing the alterations for me.

My girls — and all of you on Weddingbee! — have seen pics, but only my mom and sister have seen me in person and IN the dress.

Once I have that “The one” moment I probably will only show it to my mom, future mother in law and my two bridesmaids…and possibly my aunt.

No one.  I wrote a post on this how people were being obnoxious about it.  My mom will see it but that’s it.
