If he knows how much it means to you for him not to see it, I’m betting he probably looked away as soon as he realized.

meganbrewer :  He probably did not really see it. The PP is right, he probably looked away as soon as he realized it. And even with a quick glance, it isn’t the same as him seeing you in it. Try not to worry. He is going to be blown away when he sees you!

I agree with the above.  Also keep in mind even if it’s a picture of you in the dress it’s not the same as the day of when your hair and makeup are done, you’re wearing any bridal accessories and you’re surrounded by the emotion of the day.

Don’t sweat it. Even if he got a good look he may not realize it’s the dress. But even if he did, you’ll look completely different dolled up on the day of.

My husband found the sketch of my dress. My fault for leaving it inside my iPad cover. It was just a sketch but he saw my sleeves!

I guarantee he’s already forgotten what it looks like.  And he’s got several months to continue to forget. Don’t worry about it.

I just asked my husband what my dress looked like:  uhhhh it was like a 1950s dress… ummm it was white!  Oh yeah, had an orange thingie under it.

HaHaHa. This just happened to me.  My fiance was trying to find a picture that we took on my phone and I forgot I had pictures of me in my dress in there.  He definitely saw them.  I was so mad, but I don’t think he will remember what it looks like by the time we get married.  I know how you feel though.  It is a little disappointing.

meganbrewer :  Seeing a photo of your dress for a couple of seconds will not ruin him seeing you in it for the first time.

Think about how many wedding dresses you’ve seen over your wedding planning process. And you are actually looking and paying attention to these things. How many can you remember in explicit detail? He only got a few seconds glance at this one. To him, it’ll be a white dress blur. When he sees you in it, all glammed up on the day of, he won’t even remember what he saw before.

Unless you’ve got a memory eraser from Men in Black I’m not sure there’s much you can do.


If it helps, he probably barely saw it and it’ll still be a surprise seeing it in person with you completely dolled up for the occassion so it’s not that huge of a deal.

My husband helped me pick my dress so I guess I don’t see the big deal. I know you said this is important to you, but I promise your wedding will be every bit as special whether or not he knows what the dress looks like, and seeing it on you in person with your hair/makeup done and the full shebang will also be totally different than seeing a low quality phone picture for a few seconds.

I’ve actually shown my FH pictures of me in dresses to help me choose a style. It was helpful for me and he has completely forgotten what any of them look like now, LOL 

It will be fine, don’t sweat it. Seeing a picture verse what you’ll look like the day of, all done up, it will be like he never saw it!
