    Nope everyone knows. My bridal party was there when I picked the dress out, and I showed it to friends/family who asked to see pics of it. Fiance has seen a pic as well. We are having a pre-wedding photoshoot with our wedding dress/tux so he would see it regardless. Honestly, I don’t think he or anyone else remember all the details of the dress so I’m not too worried.

    Other. Fiance knows my dress, so does my mom, sisters, and bridemaid. So it’s a surprise for everyone else.

    4 people have seen the dress. My mom, aunt, and 2 bridesmaids. That’s it.

    I’d pretty much show the model picture or explain what my dress looked like to anybody who asked, but frankly, not that many people did!  So, really just my mom, bridesmaids and a few random coworkers that weren’t even invited knew what I was wearing.

    other.  Fiance saw me try on the sample so he knows what dress it is, but hasn’t seen it fitting me properly (the sample was a couple sizes too small) and also hasn’t seen it in the color i ordered.  the color is huge for this, because it’s not a question of white/ivory…i tried it on in silvery color and the dress is pale blue with a light gold directional iridescence to it.  my Future Mother-In-Law and my sister have seen pictures of me trying it on too, and i’d show my mom if she cared.  ๐Ÿ˜‰  so it’s a secret to Fiance and most everyone else, but not absolutely everyone.

    I show anyone and everyone, I don’t care LOL. I think the main reason I don’t hesitate to whip out that cell phone pic though is because Fiance actually picked my dress out like a year before we got engaged w/o even realizing it.

    He came home from work one day with a local newspaper folded to show an ad for a local bridal shop, and handed it to me while pointing to the gown the model was wearing, while saying “that’s a pretty dress”

    Mind you, this was like 10 months before he proposed! 3 weeks after we got engaged, I went dress shopping with my mom and two of my BMs, and we ordered it. I love it so much, I can’t help from sharing with everyone! Most people I just show them the pic on the model, but occasionally I’ll show someone the pic of me when I was trying it on in the shop last year ๐Ÿ™‚

    You need another poll option, I don’t fit ๐Ÿ™‚ Only some very close people are allowed to see it. I would care if everyone else saw it. I want it to be a surprise.

    My mum and sister (MOH) have seen it on, my Future Sister-In-Law (bridesmaid) and Future Mother-In-Law have seen pictures of it (but not me wearing it) and I showed my hairdresser the same picture – you have to have a sacred relationship with your hairdresser ๐Ÿ™‚

    No one else (especially FI!) is allowed to see it.

    I have been struggling with this!  I showed a few close friends (I think 4-5) while I was deciding about the dress.  Now that I have ordered it, however, I want it to be a surprise!  We were at a birthday party last night and several people asked me what my dress looked like–I was surprised anybody cared!  I just said I was keeping it a secret from Fiance and pointed at her since she was standing nearby.  My dress is not white (it’s blush pink) and I think that is the kind of thing people might remember!

    I hate keeping secrets, especially one which I’m happy about!

    It’s mostly a secret to my Fiance but my parents, mother-in-law, sister-in-law and pretty much all my girlfriends attending the wedding, have seen it 0_0 I’m trying not to send it to my cousins and so forth as my wedding is tiny and if they see it, that means EVERYONE has seen the dress before the wedding!

    Instead, I channel this… whatever you call it… by posting my dress all over WeddingBee:D

    My daughter, my best friend and my step mom were the only ones that saw my dress. Actually I had purchased two and when asked I told everyone else that I didn’t know which one I was going to wear and I’d decide the morning of giving them a vague description of each if they pressed further – to throw them off.  When I bought the 2nd one, I knew that it was the one!

    I don’t want a lot of opinions on oh we don’t like this which my Future Mother-In-Law & Future Sister-In-Law are all too quick to share, so only my mom, workplace, and matron of honor have seen it. Other than that TOP SECRET!

    My hope is to keep it secret from him, but I am TERRIBLE at secrets and don’t know if I’ll be able to. He already knows exactly what I’m looking for haha.
