@renwoman:  I bought my dress almost a year ago. The wedding is in February. My dress has stayed at the bridal salon since I purchased it. I’ll be starting alterations soon and it’ll stay there for as long as I need. 🙂 Not sure if that is an option for you. When I do pick it up, it’ll stay at my parents’ house for safe keeping. Good luck!

It was in the bag, in the closet in the guest room. He knew it was there, but was so adamant that he didn’t see it that he never looked at it.

My dress came in July 2012 and stayed at the bridal salon until July of this year (in a fire safe, and they have insurance). I picked it up to take to my grandma’s for alterations, where it stayed until I needed to drop it off to be steamed 2 weeks before the wedding. Because of sheer idiocy, Darling Husband had to go down to the salon the day before the wedding and pick it up for me (double bagged, no peeking!) because we forgot to stop for it that morning after setting up the reception venue. I had to lock myself in the spare room to try it on and check it out and then put it in the black dress bag to take with me the next morning.

Mine was in a bag in the guest room until I brought it home from alterations. After alterations she told me it would be best to keep it out of the bag so it didn’t wrinkle. I hung it up in the closet in our guest room and put a note on the door to remind him that he can’t open the closet!

I hung it in a bag in the closet. He didn’t care. Men aren’t into dresses

does he even want to see it? Do you have separate closets? My Fiance doesn’t want to see my dress, so I brought it to our apt when he wasnt there and keep it in its bag in my closet. I try it on when he’s gone sometimes. I’ll have it for a year before our wedding. No problem, but depends on your situation

I told him it was hanging in a bag in my closet, and he hasn’t gone near there since. He literally gives my closet the stink eye, and freaked out the first few times I opened it after I told him.

I don’t know what he’s going to do when we move before the wedding.
I guess I won’t get any help moving my clothes. 😛

@renwoman:  I ordered my dress in Feb of 2012 and it didn’t come in til Nov/Dec 2012. I have been to 3 fittings so far. I pick up my dress Sept 10 (which is 4 days before the big day). He doesn’t want to see it, so I have no problem hanging it up in my bedroom. I know he won’t look

Mine is going to live at my parents house – our apartment is so small he’d be all up over top of it.

Before I got a garment bag, I hid my dress under the duvet in the spare room as I heard it shouldn’t be exposed to light. Fiance knew it was there but never peeked

It’s in the shop for alterations right now, but when I pick it up it’ll be going to FFIL’s house.  Fiance wants nothing to do with it until the day of the wedding!

I just picked mine up on Saturday and it is torturing us! I put it on and walked around the house in it on Monday when I got home from work. I’m just so happy with it that I want to show him… and I’m sure he wants to know what it looks like. I just hope he hasn’t peeked.

I’m going to send it home with Future Mother-In-Law when we see them at a party this weekend and she’ll bring it over to my parents’ house so it can stay in my bedroom there.

Garment bag in my mom’s closet, and it’s going to stay there until it gets transported to the hotel the night before.
