I’ll buck the trend here. 

He has the prerogative to desire you to look a certain way. You have the same prerogative. You both may have a dream dress in mind, (or a dream tux for him), neither looking a thing like the other.

I suggest you both go dress shopping together, at least a time or two. He can see you in a few sheath dresses, Cinderella dresses, mermaid dresses, whatever. (Doesn’t have to be bridal gowns, per se, but definitely gowns.) Hopefully you don’t actually find “the one” and spoil the surprise but you both should find a better understanding of how different gown styles flatter your frame, function, feel, etc.. If he is still adamant about some froo-froo gown that makes you gag then, oh well. At least you made the effort to find a compromise and he should at least appreciate that. 

Happy shopping, Bee!

Like others pointed out, you’re the lovely lady wearing the dress. It’s about what makes you feel beautiful and like a bride. He’s going to think you look great in anything you wear!

I think @Observer made a great point, people regret things the most when they question their own decisions. You know what suits you better than anyone else ever will. If you love a simple sheath dress, then baby go for it!

Like pp said, his only frame of reference might be movies/TV where brides almost always get pictured in a ballgown. He probably hasn’t spent much time on Pinterest searching for different silhouettes, ya know? 

I give you credit, because my Fiance would have found himself on the receiving end of some major attitude if he made a comment about my wardrobe chioces like that.
