Just wondering how much did you or didnt you tell your Fiance about your dress? Im hopefully going to be changing my current dress for my dream dress so I get a redo. Originally I was so excited that I told my Fiance that my dress was ivory & that it was tea length. I kind of think it was to much.
Yesterday I went to an appointment to try on my dream dress & I told him that I was doing that but then mom said not to tell him anything so when he asked how the appointment went I just said ok & then when he asked if I liked it or not I told him I couldnt tell him anymore. Drove him crazy. I know hes going to be probing but dont know what I should say if anything. He did say he understood. Its hard because besides mom he is also my best friend… its hard to be excited about something & not tell him but I want him to be completely surprised when he sees me.
Just wondering what your feelings on this are?

At the begning of my dress shopping I asked him if he had any requests for the dress. He replied nothing that looks like a nightgown.
And the only other thing I said to him about it is when I bought it and when it was delivered. Thats it. He hasnt probed me about what the dress looks like beyond that. He is excited to see me in it that day of. I dont think he wants to ruin any of the surprise 😉

I showed my fiance my dress before I knew it was my dress. But by now, he’s forgotten. Except I think I may be having dress regret. I’m so indecisive. So I knew it most likely would happen. I like everything when it comes to fashion. So he knows I’m feeling regret but he keeps saying I’ll look beautiful in anything. But honestly, he probably can’t remember what I wore yesterday. Let alone a picture I showed him 3 weeks ago. And I think most people are like that, so even if you did show him a pic of the dress or you in the dress, he wont remember it months later. Hahah. I wouldn’t talk about it at great legnth though for him to analyze it.

My fiance never even asked me about the dress other than to go “okay that’s a lot of money”. I never asked his opinion either, the dress was one of those wedding decisions I enjoyed making alone after having to make all the others together.
I did get to see his suit before the wedding though.

My fiance has seen my dress – we’re not super traditional and he wanted to see it, so I didn’t mind (it also hasn’t had the alterations and I am changing the shape of the dress, etc – so it will be pretty different by the time the wedding rolls around). My fiance also doesn’t have a great memory for stuff like this so he likely only remembers vague details if anything, haha.
I think it’s really cool not to tell him anything though, I’m sure it would be cool to be completely surprised!

Told him nothing! But, he can look in the closet if he really wants to see it. I dont think he really cares honestly.

Im completely indecisive too. I feel like this one now is MY dress though because it was everything I originally looked for. I cant say if only it had this. If I had an unlimited budget this would still be THE DRESS. I going to try my hardest not to tell him anything lol.
He has a pretty good memory. When I gave him the info on the other one he would see tea length dresses & say… does yours look like that lol.

Fiance knows my dress is white and has some bling on it. But he would have guessed that even if I didn’t tell him lol. Fiance knew when I was trying on dresses, when I’m picking mine up (TONIGHT!), and all about when I have to get alterations etc. I’m all for keeping the tradition of him not knowing about/seeing the dress, but you don’t have to ice him out. You can tell him how much fun you had trying on dresses with your mom, or about a ridiculous/hideous one you tried on,a nd even that you found the one but it’s a surprise.

I thought I already found the dress. I just went this time to try on one dress that was my dream dress & I told him I just had to make sure. I didnt tell him the dream dress part… just that it was more like what I originally wanted but now he wants to know if I got that one or kept the other. I told him we had fun & all that. Im trying to be light about it & tell him I want him to be surprised.

My Fiance wants nothing to do with it, didn’t have a say in style/etc. He won’t even look at “bad” dresses online where I’m like can you believe this thing?! His 10 yr old neice BEGGED to pick out 1 dress for me to try on, so I did. It was hideous but she wanted a pic w/ me in it. Fiance wouldn’t even look at that pic! LOL
He wants to be totally surprised, so that’s good.
Once, while we were doing something wedding related, I had to say..well that won’t really match our wedding…He looked confused and I said “my dress”. It gave him no hints but still he got the point..

I showed him the “no” dresses. He knows I have a long veil and that the dress is beautiful and not strapless and that’s it 🙂

I’ve told him absolutely nothing. Except that it’s white, haha! And actually it’s ivory but same difference his mind.
However, I have a second dress that I’m wearing to our at home reception and that one I showed him a pic of me wearing it.

I haven’t told him anything, I want it to be a 100% surprise for him on the day.
