I have not even decided on a dress yet… and I already want to show him what it looks like!
I am the worest at keeping secrets, especially from Fiance… I have found a dress I reall like… http://gallery.weddingbee.com/photo/possible-dress-1 and I so baldy want to show him to get his opinion. Its not that I think he will not like it, it is more because I a value his opinion! I love taking him shopping with me and getting his feed back on different things I try on! But I do want to keep this is suprise… I have not even bought it and the wedding is about 11 months away… I dont know how I can keep my mouth shut that long…
advice? any other brides really want to share their dress with theri FIs?

I show him pictures of dresses I like, not pictures on me though in case you get the dress. I ask him what he likes/ doesn’t like. From these conversations it has helped narrowed down what we both want. I want to look like the perfect bride for him and if that takes making little tweaks it is fine with me. Luckily he likes what I like but for example I found out he doesn’t like colored sashes. I would not have thought twice about maybe choosing a colored sash, but he pictures me in all white. I like him to feel included. I wish I could have him there when trying on dresses, he is the one opinion I want 🙁

Ahh I already showed my Fiance… wearing the dress and all LoL. I don’t think it’s a big deal; wearing the dress is not the same as wearing the dress on your wedding day all dolled up 🙂

It all depends on you and how you feel about him seeing the dress. Some girls go dress shopping with their FIs, it is not unheard of. If you do not want him seeing it, just show him examples of the different shapes of dresses and see what he says about them.

I tried to find the dress on a model on the internet and it was a no go!… could not find it anywhere… And the only thing he has mentioned that he does not like is a sweetheart neckline. I’m probably going to wear ivory, due to the color of my skin and to me wearing white white is so blinding… I was trying on dresses next to another bride to be and her dress almost made me nauseous.

I felt the same way so I just took him with me and we picked the dress together. We do everything together so it made sense for us. The surprise will be on the wedding day… How I look with the alterations, jewelry makeup and hair done.

@Cady: I want him to see it… he does not want to see me in it, until the big day… which makes it all the much harder to keep it a secret! :/
