    I really love the dress on you!!!!  ….but I also just want to caution shopping too early. I did the same and my taste changed completely…so now I have a new dress.

    Is there any reason why that he gave you? Most of the time the model pictures look so different than what the dress looks like on a real person, and most of all, on you! I also think sometimes our FIs don’t really know much about dresses. The first time I went dress shopping mine said he HATED lace. Lo and behold, looking at an acquaintances pictures on facebook a few weeks later, he sincerly said “nice dress”. It was alllll lace. I wouldn’t let his judgement on one dress that he saw of many completely sway your mind. But, was there a general trend of what style he loved? How does it compare to this dress?

    You look beautiful in the dress. He might not have liked it on the model but once he sees YOU wearing it, hair/makeup done on the day im sure he’ll think you’re beautiful. If it makes you feel any better I’m kind of in the same boat-I showed my Fiance the ONLY dress i felt gorgeous in in a magazine and non chalantly asked what he thought and he didn’t like it! I’m devastated lol but I keep telling myself that it will be totally different on the day. Bottom line is this-you really do look gorgeous in it and on your wedding day he’ll be seeing the whole package!

    I absolutely love that dress on you! I honestly think it looks perfect for you. Don’t worry about what he said – I have no doubt at all that we will feel completely different once he sees it on you. If you love it, just forget what he said and go for it!

    (Although, what a PP said about not purchasing too early on is a good point too… since you have so long to go, your tastes may change over the coming months – I know mine did. Maybe wait a few more months, and if you still love it, take the plunge!)

    I love that dress on you, and I think it’s a really fun and unique dress in general. If you love it, I would go for it. It’s probably totally different on you as compared to the picture, and your fiance will probably forget by your wedding anyway. I’m sure he’ll think you look gorgeous on your wedding day!

    I think you look stunning!

    What was it about the dress he didn’t like – was there a particular thing (ie. he dislikes lace) or that while just glancing at the dress he said he didn’t like it?

    I’d also keep in mind that he probably won’t remember ever seeing it and saying he didn’t like it when he sees you wearing it on your wedding day.

    I think you look very nice in the dress. Even if it’s not his favorite style, I doubt that he cares as much about your dress as you do, so I would say get the dress you like most.

    I honestly love it, and don’t know what else to tell you, but I feel like when he actually sees it on you, he will change his tune.

    I think it looks better on you than it does on the model. The model photo looks so forced and fake. If you still love that dress the most when it’s time to buy one later, go ahead and get it.

    It is gorgeous on you. In My Humble Opinion you have a romantic soft look to you, with your curls and your lovely figure, and I think the dress perfectly suits that.

    Did he like any of the other Pronovias dresses, or dislike any others specifically? There would have been a lot of similar dresses in that collection, so chances are, it’s not ballgowns and lace he objects to per se.

    Maybe it’s just the specific lace pattern he doesn’t like? I think it’s beautiful, but I suppose maybe he thinks it covers up too much of your bust area, and he’d like to see more of your bust area? I also think that lace looks much better on you than it does on the model.

    Maybe you could try the “test” again? Show him a whole pile of dresses with similar elements – illusion necklines, the same kind of lace, the same shape, pleats, pockets – and see if he has the same reaction to those elements. Include a different photo of the same dress with those photos and see if he has the same reaction the second time.
