    I don’t think that it is wrong for him to see it. But I am not letting him see it because I want to surprise him.

    Your dress is beautiful!

    Well, I didn’t go to try on dresses, so I can’t really comment on that! 

    I thought I was going to keep it from him, but I did end showing him a picture. I don’t think I want him to see me in it until the first look, but that’s probably the only thing I’m being traditional on – I don’t believe in bad luck, I just think it’ll make that moment more special for us personally.

    I didnt take my Fiance with me but I do not see anything wrong with it at all. I mean when you think about your dress you obviously think about whether you like it or not but then usually the second thing that pops into your head is will the Fiance like it. I say go for it that way you know whether or not he likes it. If you want to throw him for a curve then try on several dresses, get his opinion on each of them and just dont tell him which one you chose to order

    I wouldn’t have minded if he came dress shopping with me or if he saw my dress before the wedding, but he didn’t want to see the dress. He knew it was a Pronovias gown, and that it was fit-and-flare silhouette, and that it was originally a halter-top but I altered it into a tank-top, and he knew it was light ivory/off-white in color, but he was very insistent on not actually seeing the dress until our first look right before the ceremony. Since it was important to him to not see the dress until the wedding day, I didn’t show it to him. But if he had wanted to see it, I would have shown it to him.

    When my best friend got married this past year, her Fiance had already seen her in the dress…it was myself, her, and her Fiance picking it out! It was actually fun to have a guy’s perspective, and I’m pretty sure he had more fun than we did 🙂

    Personally I’m not letting MY Fiance see my dress, but it’s all up to you! (Plus, it’s fun driving him absolutely nuts because he doesn’t have any control over what I’m wearing.)

    I was SO tempted to bring Fiance with me while I tried on dresses after showing him pictures of some of my top contenders.  But then I realized that I wanted the first time he sees me in a wedding dress to be when I walk down the aisle.  It seems like it would be such a magical, memorable moment.  I don’t think there’s anything WRONG with Fiance seeing the dress before the wedding, it’s just not what I wanted for us.  When I imagine myself looking into his eyes as I walk down the aisle, and him looking at me all radiant and bridal in my magnificent dress, I just feel really moved, and I want to preserve that.  I didn’t mind showing him the pictures, at all.  I was glad to have his input that much, and was thrilled that he liked all the dresses I did.  Further, I think showing him my dress helped articulate my dreams for our wedding in general.

    Your dress is very elegant!  I am not usually a fan of that much beading, but I think it’s done very tastefully on your dress!

    For me it’s not so much about tradition as just wanting to surprise him with how pretty it will look.

    My fiance didn’t come with me, but only because he hates shopping. I showed him a bunch of pics online beforehand, though.

    This was my front runner, but then I fell in love with a photo and got a different dress.  It’s a really flattering dress – Congrats 🙂
