    yes, it's important to consider his opinion.

    no, you should wear whatever you want regardless of what he thinks

    take it into consideration...you may change your mind but still find something that pleases you.

    My husband is the sweet but frustrating type who thinks I look nice in everything. I could have marched down the aisle in a white garbage bag or Cinderella’s ballgown and he probably would have the same reaction. I chose my dress based on what I like, because I am way more picky about what I wear than he is.

    I definitley took him into consideration while picking my dress. He never voiced his opinion and he would think I look beautiful in anything I picked, but I know his taste so that was in the back of my mind when trying on dresses. I ended up picking something I fell IN LOVE with and it just so happens to be something I believe he will love too. That being said, if I wanted style A and fiance said he preferred style B I would still go with my gut and preference and pick style A. Because.. I’m wearing it!

    Fiance actually searched for wedding dresses online and showed me a few that he liked.  Fortunately, he liked the same style of dresses that I planned on trying on anway! He has no idea what it looks like though.

    My Fiance has no fashion sense and he’s absolutely zero help when i ask him for advice on how i look. I did think about him when i chose my dress but i thought about me more 😂

    It never once occurred to me to find out what DH would like. He never expressed a preference, and I never asked, nor did I ever show him what I had considered. Likewise, I never asked what he would wear, trusting that he, as an adult, would choose what was best for himself.

    I think you should at least take his opinion into consideration , especially as the bride will generally have a say in the groom’s attire.

    I showed my Fiance different dresses I liked and he always liked the form-fitting mermaid/trumpet dresses so I’m going to pick one like that.

    I don’t think it would be possible for me to pick a dress he didn’t think I looked beautiful in. All he cares about is that I’m happy and that I think I look beautiful in the dress.

    There are so many wedding dresses out there, I feel like the least I can do is narrow it down to ones I know he won’t hate. He’s told me I should wear whatever makes me happy, but he did say certain types of mermaid dresses makes him think of Mars Attacks. Not the vibe I want to send to him on our wedding day. Ak ak.

    Listen… if I let the huzband dress me I would be showing tits n a** even at work.. no bueno!

    I took what he said with a grain of salt but I still knew a bit more what flkattered my body and what I looked best in.

    He might have certain preferences beforehand, but he will be thrilled with whatever you wear because he’s marrying you.

    Short answer: No. 

    Longer answer: if you ask someone’s opinion, they will give it to you. However, an abstract opinion hardly ever accurately predicts the visceral response to reality, especially when it comes to brides in wedding dresses.

    I actually got his advice on it before I bought it because he has a very good sense of fashion. We are less traditional than most though. I wouldn’t have bought it if I didn’t like it though.

    I was surprised by how much I cared what he thought, actually. My Fiance also made cryptic remarks like “make sure it doesn’t look old fashioned” and once he mentioned he liked one of these super hot Berta Bridal dresses.

    I honestly don’t know what he’ll think of my dress. At the end of the day, I like it and I have fun wearing it and that’s what was most important to me. But I can also say that if I cared less about what he thought, I probably would have ended up in something with more color or more off the wall somehow.
