I haven’t had that happen…yet!  But we still have a little over a year to go! 

I totally think you shold still wear it!  You will look completely different on your wedding day than you did when you were 17!  I am sure you will have different hair, make up and jewelery.  It will give a whole different look! 

I love the idea of wearing your mom’s dress!  If my mom’s dress was that cute  I would definitely be wearing it!

@Meggiemae14:   +1I completely agree. If you love it, you should wear it. Even though you Fiance saw it, it will still look better on your wedding day because you’re wearing it for him, not just a photographer. It will probably also fit you a bit better once you have it altered to your size.

Wow those pix are gorgeous! Yes, my Fiance accidentally saw pictures of me in the dress when they popped up in the computer (stupid iPhone trying to be helpful). But honestly, like you said, he’s a guy and has already forgotten what it looked like. “Um… It was long?… And white…”  So I bet yours will have forgotten by June too.

Yup had it happen. He saw it on the computer before it was being majorly altered. Told me it made me look “wider than I actually am” needless to say tears followed and myself being unhappy with the dress. He offered to buy me a new one but I refused. Got it altered. Regretted the dress ever since until I saw my photos. Turned out pretty good in the end!

@navywifenmoore:  PLEASE don’t get another dress, yours is so beautiful. Like several other ladies here, my Fiance saw my dress too. He didn’t want to and it was by mistake, just a photo of me trying it on.

He won’t remember, and I’m sure there will be little things like jewelry, hair and shoes that will completely surprise him the day of along with the dress. :]

Keep this dress!!! It is beautiful, fits you wonderfully, and was your mom’s! Great on so many levels! I hate that he saw it…me and Fiance are super old-fashioned, too (not even doing a first look) so I TOTALLY get it. But please keep the dress. 🙂

Yah…my Fiance saw the top half of my dress by accident. I forgot to delete pictures off the camera, and I was showing him puppy pictures. Went back one too far. Oops. He insisted that he hadn’t seen a thing and had no idea what it looked like…but he has a photographic memory, so he knows. But he keeps insisting that he has NO idea. 

I’m keeping the dress, and we are both pretending he didn’t see it! Plus, it will look very different on the day of when I’m wearing a veil and nicely done makeup. 

PS: Pretty dress and great photographer!

Keep the dress! It was an accident.  Is there a little something-something you could add to it to make it your own and change it up a little so that it seems different on the big day?

He will not remember what it looked like. I promise you, he’ll just remember it completely different…

I showed my hubby my dress before I bought it… not wearing it, just the stock photo. He smiled, said it’s beautiful, then when I got all giddy he was like… it’s a dress… i can’t tell the difference between this one and any other one you showed me. lol.

plus, you’ll be wearing your hair differently, and make-up, and jewelry, and a veil, and a different bouquet… he’ll get over it! this dress looks like it was made for you!

Keep the dress–it is gorgeous!  And don’t worry, seeing it on you in person will look totally different from even the best pictures!

And yes, my Fiance has seen the dress, but he doesn’t know it!  When I was scoping out styles and budgetary options, I really wanted to know what he liked, too.  I fell in love with the Ann Taylor dress that I eventually bought online, and I sent him a picture of it–basically, I said, “If I bought something like this, would you like it?”  At the time, I had NO thought that that might actually be my dress–I really wanted to look in person!  But he adored it, I adored it, and it went on sale for an incredible price.  Seemed like fate, and I bought it!

Honestly, when he does see me on our wedding day, I VERY much doubt that he’ll realize that he ever saw a picture. Even my Fiance, who has surprisingly strong opinions about fashion, just has NO memory for details of dress design. 😀
