I went dress shopping today with my fmil, fsil, my mom, and my grandma. I know monday seems like a weird day to go dress shopping but it just so happened everyone had this day off. Im just under a year from the wedding And I figure i could use this appt to see what I liked, didnt like, and what everyone’s opinions were.
so here is how my Fiance picked my dress, he dropped me off because he had a meeting close by so we were planning lunch after. He walked me in, said hi to his mom and sis, and as he was walking out he said “oh that dress is pretty” i didn’t think much of it. I got settled in and we started pick all sorts of Dresses in every style, we ended up with 11 dresses. I tried everyone of them on and didn’t like a single one. There was always something that didn’t feel right. So we decided that today wasnt the day and that I had time to keep shopping.
I was taking off the last dress when I thought what the hell, I’ll try on the one Fiance pointed out. So the consultant went to get it and I thought I’m probably not going to like it. As I was stepping into the dress I felt it. It was the dress, i came out and everyone gasped. We all agreed that this was the dress, I couldn’t stop smiling! so I went ahead and bought it and it will be in in september.
I didn’t tell my Fiance or anyone that he unknowing picked it, I want to see if he remember the day of. It won’t let me add pictures for some reason but here is the number If you want to see the dress WG3786 its from davids bridal

My Fiance wouldn’t come near the shop because he knew he’d be able to tell which one I bought haha
I think it’s really cute that he picked it out unknowingly! X

Oh that’s so nice! Congrats on finding your dress with this lovely way!
By The Way I saw the dress and it is very beautiful. Have you considered adding a sash? I think it would look awesome.

This reminds me of how I picked my dress, though my fiance has never actually seen my dress, even in a photo. I have been forcing him to watch say yes to the dress with me, which he was very sweet about, and he even started to get quite into it, after a whole lot of eye rolling. I was sort of hoping to get an idea about what sort of dresses he liked, and which dresses he completely hated. Turns out he hates anything with lace, anything sparkly, anything with pickups etc. Ive always loved pickup ballgowns, provided they are not too far on the pavlova spectrum. Years ago when I was looking at dresses I fell in love with Maggie Sottero dresses like Calista, Ambrosia and Sabelle. Which he would absolutely hate. What he likes is plain satin ballgowns with no embellishments. My main dress concern was finding a shape that worked, and the fabric was secondary to that. Im also not a fan of sparkly, but I quite like some lace. When I went shopping, I figured Id try on a dress which I knew he would love (Sottero and Midgely’s Taiya), and see what I thought, but ultimately I was going to pick the dress that I loved. Well, the types of dresses I thought I always wanted just didnt really do it for me, and it turns out that I absolutely loved Taiya. Its so simple, and I can dress it how I like. So fiance didnt exactly pick it out, but he was the inspiration and it seems he has pretty good taste.

I kind of hope so but he’s the kind of guy who will remember somethings and than other things he doesnt so it’s a wait and see.
that’s how was to until the day came to go and he was saying it would be stupid to drive 2 cars when the place he need to be was so close and i didn’t think he would come in but he wanted to say hey to his fam but i suppose it as a good thing
yes I did, I thoght about wearing my moms dress but that’s not happening now so I asked her if I could make a belt out of it and she said yes. It’s made of lace and pearls so we’ll see what we can make.
thats a good way to get his opinion, I was really worried and I think other girls are to about what Fiance thinks. Like what if he hates and you love it. I’m glad you found something you love

What a great story. I went dress shopping with just my fi. However I didn’t let him know which dress that I ordered.
