    The only thing I’m not going to tell him about is the dress. I’m not big into traditions, but for some reason I can’t bring myself to actually let him see the dress before the wedding day.

    I think the only thing I’m SUPER keeping under wraps is my dress, but I probably won’t let him see my hair/makeup trial, either.

    He’s seen my shoes, he helped pick out the ceremony music, and he went to the florist with me to pick out our flowers, so obviously none of that is a secret lol.

    Pretty much nothing is a secret. I’m making my dress, so he’s seen that. Everything else we’ve pretty much chosen together or I’ve shown him. Maybe the only secret will be what I buy to wear the wedding night. Yeah, probably that one.

    What I look like. But he’s seen my shoes since I spent hours in front of the tv gluing rhinestones on them. And if the logistics work out I want to get him a DQ groom’s cake. He doesn’t like regular cake but loves ice cream cake.

    He knows about everything except my dress.  The only thing he knows about the dress is that it’s ivory.

    He knows about pretty much everything, but I won’t let him see the dress when I get it in person and he has no clue what I’m doing for makeup.

    I actually wanted to share all of my ideas and get his opinion, but he insisted he wanted the dress to be a surprise.

    I’m keeping all of my appearance-related information to myself.  I want him to be surprised πŸ™‚

    Everything else is fair game!

    I’m pretty bad at keeping secrets. He knew about all of the above.

    Definitely not the music. He’s picking that all by himself. He’s been joking about picking Gangnam Style for me to walk down the aisle to. At least I hope he’s joking.

    It was pretty much just my dress and vows.  Everything else he already knew about going into wedding day! πŸ™‚

    Fiance really doesn’t want to know anything about my look.  So I respected that and have told him nothing.  Down to me ordering earrings and him saying “I don’t want to know”.  The only thing he knows about are my shoe change into Chuck Taylors as they were the first purchase I made.  Our vows will be standard Catholic vows so he knows those and we chose the ceremony music together.

    Out of everything you must make sure that you don’t spill the beans about the dress.  But I don’t think that it is a good idea to let him know about the hair and makeup either.

    I think it is best if you just leave everything to the imagination. 

    *Wedding Day Scenario*

    It is 30 minutes before the wedding.  You and all your bridesmaids are putting all your finishing touches on before you finally can get the show on the road.  Your Darling Husband is getting ready to stand on at the alter awaiting for your grand entrance.  He is starting to get nervous.  He has all these emotions running through him, can’t stop thinking about what you look like, and honestly he will be hoping that he doesn’t screw something up during the wedding.

    Suddenly the music starts and the door opens, your bridemaids begin their decent up the aisle.  Your Darling Husband gets even more nervous.  He knows he is only a couple of minutes away from seeing you for the first time.  Then the wedding march begins and everyone rises.  He closes his eyes for just a second to prepare himself for what he is about to see.  Then he looks up with his eyes full of love and is blown away by how you amazing look, because never could he possiblitly imagine how beautiful you look in this very moment. 

    No words can ever describe the look in your Darling Husband eyes the first time that he sees you.  Everything comes together so perfectly and it will always be better than what he could ever possibly imagine.  If you are able to keep it all a surprise then I promise you it will pay off in the end.
