Well you can do as I did and show him a few of your faves and get his reaction. 
I got the thumbs up on quite a few and seriously, he’ll be an easy guy to please (thank my lucky stars!)

Maybe try that with M?  You do rock that AA dress btw.  But confuse him and show him other dresses too.  (that way he would not have a clue as to which you’ll wear!)

Btw, I’m bad with presents.  Each time I get a surprise for somebody I end up telling them what it is b/c I get so excited for them.  I’m going to try to NOT do this with the wedding dress or his groom’s gift.

Well, do you want to show him the dress, or show him pictures of you IN the dress?

Maybe if you want his input, you could just ask him how he thinks you look best… you know, what’s a favorite dress of yours that you have, and why he likes it… how he likes your hair etc… I think it would be nice to make the dress decision largely independent of him.

My FH has seen my dresses… mostly because he sits by me on the couch while I do wedding things. And the way I’ve been working on all these sketches, he’s bound to notice. When the dress actually gets here, I won’t let him see it… but that’s mostly just for fun. 

I don’t think anything (short of wearing the dress around the house in front of him) will take away from him seeing you on your wedding day… it will still be amazing!

I agree. Show him a few of your favorites and see what he thinks. That way, it will still be a surprise on the big day since he won’t know which one you’ve chosen. The only thing is if you show him one that you’re only “meh” about and he loves it, are you okay with that? Regardless, I’m positive that on the big day he’s going to look at you and think about how gorgeous you are. I don’t think critiquing your dress will be on the agenda 🙂

well i can tell you that i have the same problem… he is my best friend and i like his input and opinions. at first i decided to go with my friend advice of not showing the dress to him. i went to db and tried white dress and love one… after much thinking i decided not to buy it until he see it and thank God i decided that. when he saw it he didn’t like it, he told me he want me in a red dress… i know that for some brides it sounds weird to have the fi opinions but i have really good reasons:

1) im getting dress fro him so i need to be sure he likes it because i want to make him happy.

2) the dress is a big chunk of money so i do need his input

believe me he may remember some things about the dress but in your wedding day it will be different, you will have your make up, your hair done and everything… 

but again this is my opinion and im not your traditional bride

Ha ha ha ah ha! I totally showed Mr. KM the day I tried my dress on! My mom was like “NOOOOOOO DON’T LOOK AT IT” cause she was sitting in a chair and we were on the sofa and I had my laptop. But he liked it. He doesn’t really care about it as long as I’m in it!

That is perfect!  M loves it!  I am also laughing at how quickly all this transpired.  Cre, you are good gal.  You can get it done!

Now check “fiance loves my dress” off your list!
