(Closed) How secret is your wedding dress?

posted 8 years ago in Dress
  • poll: Keeping it a complete secret, or only sharing it with one or two close friends or family members

    I've shown all my good friends or bridesmaids

    I've shown all my friends who are invited to the wedding, and/or my immediate family

    I'm showing it to everyone who mentions the word 'wedding'!

    I showed my aunt (she was there when I tried it on haha), my mom, my sisters, and my Fiance (not the pic of me trying it on but the model pic – I can’t help myself!). I also showed it to one of my bridesmaids but haven’t had a chance to show the other one yet. I haven’t posted it on fb or anything. I’m kind of trying to limit it to close friends and family.

    Since most of my friends and family are back home in Australia I took pictures and sent them. My Fiance was with me when I got my dress and has seen me in it a few times. He says that it will be different when I’m all done up!

    He calms me down when I have moments of dress regret haha.

    My mom, Aunts & Bridesmaid or Best Man have seen it.. plus a few other random friends. Not too many out of the 160+ people who will be at the wedding.

    My bridesmaids and a few of my other friends have seen pictures. And of course my mom and sister, but other people who I’m not really close to have asked to see it and I kind of felt pressured into showing them. I decided to stop showing pictures to people because I haven’t even gotten the chance to wear it yet so I don’t think everyone and their aunty needs to see it yet.

    I can’t answer the poll because no one has seen it! Literally only the lady in the shop and me. I might show a couple of close friends before the big day. Maybe.

    @lolot: Thanks! It’s the perfect length as the reception will be on a forest property, so I don’t have to worry about it getting dirty!

    Oh, and in terms of sharing it – I’m of course sharing it with the people here. Pretty much all my important wedding decisions are! 🙂

    Anyone who asks to see it (other than my Fiance of course).  I love it so much I wish I could wear it all day everyday.

    @katehh08:  I vote other. I’ve shown my mother who has been sworn to secrecy. I’ve shown Future Mother-In-Law who is also sworn to secrecy, and my BFF. and my sister who was with when I picked it and that’s it.

     

    well the flower lady will see it next week but she will be sworn to secrecy as well. other wise no mention of it is allowed at all. color, sytle, cut, anything.

    My mom, grandma, and sisters were at the appointment. My Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law and my bridesmaids have also seen it or pictures of it. That’s it really. I’m not too much into sharing a buch of my wedding deatails outside of those people though.

    @everyheart:  i never hear the end of it from my bridesmaids because they feel they deserve to know lol. It’s fun listening to them brainstorm what they think it looks like (they are so wrong) and I am so excited to see their reaction when they first see me on my wedding morning 🙂

    My mom and a close friend saw it because they came with me to buy it! My BMs have seen a photo. My Future Mother-In-Law has not seen it, nor has my Dad.
