    @KsoontobeN:  I’ve been with Fiance for almost nine years…not too many surprises to be had these days so I am going to milk this one!!

    I kept it in my closet at our house.  He had a vague idea that it was Champagne colored and he was happy it wasn’t strapless lol. He didn’t see it and swore he hadn’t peaked.  When I saw him down the aisle I knew he hadn’t peaked ๐Ÿ˜€

    NO WAY! He will not see it until either our first look or I walk down the aisle.

    I reeeeeally want to show him, but he is adamant about being surprised on the wedding day.  I’m hoping he gets teary-eyed at the altar, so, I am obliging him ๐Ÿ™‚

    If he wanted to, I’d let him see it. He has no desire to see it or really anything else wedding related.

    No, but that was HIS choice. I didn’t care either way. He was adamant at he know nothing about it

    I’m not planning on him seeing the dress, because I’m traditional and I want to surprise him but in a way I would like him to see it so I can be sure he’ll love it!

    He saw model pics already because I wanted to be sure he would like it. And will likely see the dress, because we live together and I don’t care that much to go to great lengths to hide it. But he won’t see me wearing it until wedding day.

    My Fiance is incredibly traditional…he actually doesn’t want to see it until our big day ๐Ÿ˜‰

     

    That being said…he knows the color and he knows its poofy lol but thats it!

     

    i tried explaining the history behind the cant see the dress tradition, but he still refused, oh well, only 2.5 months so thats not too long
