How do you feel about other people trying on what you’ll be wearing on your big day? I thought about it the other day when my shoes came in (yay!!!!). I want to show them off, but knowing some of my friends, they will want to try them on. Somehow, that doesn’t sit with me well. I know, I know…they’re just a pair of shoes. But they’re THE shoes. LOL. Silly, right?

Lol…I giggle because I think I might feel the same way. It’s THE dress and THE shoes…how DARE anyone else try them on. They need to be preserved and revered until the big day! I concur!

I feel that way about my ring and my dress but not my shoes!
I do know where you are coming from though it is almost like you want to keep everything pure for that day!
When I first read your post I thought you were going to say someone asked to try on your dress and I was mortified!

i don’t see my friends doing that. i don’t think i would mind, other than the fact that the first time i tried my shoes on at the store they got dirty really easily, so i don’t want them to get any more dirty than they need to before my pictures. but like i said, my friends aren’t the type to ask to try them on so i wouldn’t have to worry.

Dress? No…Shoes? Why not? Granted, I had sandals for my wedding shoes….and I also let my friends try on my engagement ring (they all asked and I happily obliged–granted these were two or three of my very closest friends and they were about to be engaged too) and it just didn’t bug me. Why do they like trying your stuff on, though??? I have very few things that my friends ask to try on…it’s usually a cool necklace or headband they want to try on…

I wouldn’t let someone try on my dress, but not for emotional reasons, just because I wouldn’t want it to rip or something by accident. I don’t even let myself try it on so it stays clean.
I don’t care about shoes, ring, veil or anything else 🙂 I could see a friend wanting to try the shoes to see how comfortable they are, and I don’t think I would care one way or the other.

I know what you mean! Thinking about it, I probably wouldn’t care about the shoes…but the dress? Oh heeellll no! That’s MY dress! But as for the shoes, that’s not that big of a deal for me. I wanted to try on my friends shoes a few months ago when she got married so I could get a feel of “bridal” shoes, she didn’t mind.
But I don’t really see any of my friends doing that unless they’re getting married soon.

LOL who asks to try on someone’s wedding dress? I would laugh in their face and then run away because they are clearly psycho. Shoes – eh, I don’t care as long as their feet are clean. A couple of people have asked to try on my e-ring, which like mortifies my Maid/Matron of Honor. She thinks it’s the most inappropriate thing in the world but it didn’t really bother me. I did snatch it back pretty quick though.
