I am the worst at keeping secrets! Just terrible at it. I have for almost one year kept a secret from my Fiance. In 2 weeks…it will be one day shy of a year that I found my dress and haven’t shown or told FI! eeeep!!!
Can I get a prize? 🙂 June 1st brides, 2 weeks from today!!!

Haha! Is he making it hard? Does he ask questions about it?
P.S. I like your tarsier pic! I saw them in real life last winter when I went to the Philippines. So adorable!

I share EVERYTHING with my Fiance. It has been such a struggle to not be like “Hey babe, wanna see a pic of my dress?”. Ugh.

@notbridey: Oh god it’s so hard not to show my FH too. Fortunately he wants to be surprised and doesn’t want to see the dress, so he doesn’t tempt me. lol

I keep forgetting my Fiance is in the room when I tell people about my dress. So he knows bits and pieces. I blame my lack of filter

- Wedding: June 2013 - Piney River Ranch
I actually did show my fiance a picture of my dress – just not on me. I showed him the pic of it on the model so he could see what it looked like. He’s told me that he doesn’t even remember what it looks like so it’s going to be a surprise for him still. I am terrible at keeping secrets and I wanted to make sure he liked it as much as I did.

He’s just pretty good about it. I’m not. 😛 we met in the Philippines in the Peace Corps and that’s where our honeymoon is…and the island i lived on had lots of tarsiers. I love them!!!
he can tell when i’m about to spill and he’s like AAAAAAAAAACK I DONT WANNA KNOW!!!
i wonder what the breakdown is between grooms who want to be surprised and those that dont
he does know that my butt looks good in it, one of my bridesmaids let that slip 😉
i thought about showing him a pic but i want total surprise! i would love for him to draw out what he thinks it looks like but so far he doesnt want to. boo

Omg! I feel your pain! My fi had picked out a ring he loved but it was way out of our price range at the time and we ended up getting him another one. Well, I went back and bought the ring for him after saving for months. He has no idea.. and wont know until I slip it on his finger at the wedding, and it kills me!!! I see the box and just want to show him. But as far as the dress goes I tried on a whole bunch and even some really terrible ones and sent him pictures of all the really bad ones haha. He has no idea what my dress looks like and I think hell be pretty surprised. =)

@copewedding: I did this! The model is in such a hideous pose too that you can’t really tell what the dress fully looks like! Plus, it’s so much different when it’s on you in the moment anyway! 🙂

@Mrscdnnavywife: Me too!!! I’ve accidentally dropped that:
-My ceremony dress has black in it and a corset on top
-My reception dress is light blue
And he’s seen my custom shoes ’cause he was in the room while I was working on them.

ahaha it is so hard to not show Fiance my dress too!
i had to hide it in my mothers closet, so he would have no chance to snoop either!

OH has not seen my dress at all since buying it over a year ago. I asked him recently what HE thought it would look like – and it was a totally different description to the actual dress! Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing, but my dress is different to my usual style and totally different to the style of wedding dress I would go for!

I’ve almost shown Fiance my dress so many times! But he wants to be surprised too. 12 more days!!

@Bebealways: Today, he was in the other room while I was having a fitting. I stabbed myself with a pin and bled on my dress. ApparentLy he was trying to figure out what all the swearing was about
