I genuinely don’t see anything wrong with a bride bringing her fiance to pick the dress or showing her fiance photos of potential dresses.  If you’re not all obsessed over it being a surprise, it makes complete sense, because your fiance should be the person who knows you best, who understands how to provide constructive feedback without being hurtful, and whose opinion matters most to you. FWIW Darling Husband went with me for dress-shopping— really I don’t feel comfortable running around in my underwear in front of my girl pals or even my sister– and he even surprised me by paying the deposit once we picked a dress. He snuck his credit card to the sales associate while I was changing back into street clothes, and I found that incredibly sweet and romantic.

@fishbone:  +1. My Fiance will be coming dress shopping with me. I want to look beautiful in his eyes, so no one else’s opinion really matters (I’m sure my parents will tag along too though).

@ashump210:  Oh I was the one stressing over the money, not him. He really wasn’t fussed over the price tag, so long as I was happy. I think his paying the deposit was his way of helping me stop torturing myself trying to save a few dollars when I clearly loved the dress. He was actually intending to pay for the rest but there were some logistical issues when I went to go pay the balance and have the first fitting. I got there with a credit card before he did lol and he acutally pouted all the way home.

Awesome!  I take my Fiance with me and I know his preferences.  It’s our wedding, so if I’m soliciting opinions, obviously his is first in line.  He’s also an AWESOME dress shopping partner–he’s supportive, never snarky about my body, and is good at describing what he likes and doesn’t like about dresses.

It really sounds like you picked out his ‘dream’ dress. It’s really nice that you have the peace of mind of knowing he’ll definitely like it, but it will still be somewhat a surprise!
