What about a form-fitting fit and flare dress? Perhaps something such as that woud be a good mix of something slender and form-fitting with a more elaborate and full bottom after the flare?

He will love whatever dress you wear on your wedding day. I would not give very many more details about the dress though so that it’ll be a surprise.

Sheath dresses are one of the most elegant and sophisticated silhouettes for wedding gowns.  Your Fiance has that opinion about the Cinderella type dresses, because it’s the general, most common one.  He’s no expert!  I can guarantee that a sheath, with well chosen accesories and hair piece, makes stunning brides.  Go with what you want, your joy in what you will be wearing is what in the end, will make you a bride!

Do what makes you happy! He’ll see you all dress up and will forget about his comments 🙂

Pick what you want. Seeing a dress on a model in a magazine is totally different than seeing it on you on your wedding day.

Wear a veil, carry a bouquet, boom. Bride. I will say though sheaths show every bump and bulge. I thought I wanted one then tried them on and yeeesh. No.

I think the veil and other accessories go a looooong way toward making a woman look “bridal.” On Say Yes to the Dress they always stick people in a veil when they are on the fence about a dress, and it usually works. Get what you feel beautiful in, and I am sure your groom will think you look beautiful and bridal on your wedding day.

Dress regret posts usually have a back- story about the bride sucumbing to the bridal vision of someone else… and not being true to her own sense of style.

Don’t fall into that trap.

Yeah, in my book, the groom gets equal say about everything except the bride’s wardrobe choices.

Don’t take anything any man says about dresses into account. When my Maid/Matron of Honor and I were heading out to try on dresses, DH and my Dad each suggested their favorite dress from the DB catalog… they were by far the worst-looking dresses I tried on, haha!

He is marrying you, not the dress.  And I promise that no matter what you wear, your Fiance will think you are the most beautiful bride!  Wear what makes you feel beautiful and bridal 🙂

My husband is very traditional and wanted me in a big pouffy ballgown Cinderella dress dress. Not my style at all. I wore a slinky sheath dress but I felt and looked like a bride. I wore a two tier cathedral length veil edged with crystals which definitely helped. My husband loved it!
