    I won’t show ANYONE but my mom the dress that I’m getting.  I have shown the pictures around to some of my girlfriends, but no one knows who makes the dress or what the name of it is.  Hopefully they will forget all about it until I take that grand walk down the isle.  I actually showed Fiance this atrocious, tule, balerina looking dress and told him that that was exactly like the dress I had picked out.

    I don’t think it matters one way or the other. Actually I wanted to do a first look and then take pictures before the ceremony, but the Fiance wouldn’t have it. He wants to savor that first memory of me becoming his wife and it just wouldn’t feel as special if he sees me before the aisle walk. Since we had that talk I am PARANOID about him not seeing my dress now!

    He went with me. My Maid/Matron of Honor couldn’t go and I wanted another person to act as a buffer with my mom.


    We kind of figured since I helped him pick out his suit, it was only fair that he had a say in the dress.


    I wanted him to go with because when I started showing him dresses online, his opinions were totally off from what I had expected he would like/dislike.

    Fiance and I live far away from all our friends and family so he was really the only person I could take with me – I didn’t want to go alone.

    My fiance didn’t go with me, but I did show him the dress when I brought it home. He hasn’t seen me in it though, so I think it’ll be a total surprise. I was kind of in the middle–so happy to show him, but not so much that I’d let him actually see what I’ll look like.

    i think it’s up to you and your Fiance to create your own traditions!

    both of us are dying for him to see it… we love shopping together and take each other’s style opinions seriously… but… for the surprise/old-fashioned tradition factor, he will not be seeing it until the day of.

    but that’s what worked for us, it’s a beautiful dress, and he should see it if u want him too!

    I wanted to have one decision for the wedding be all mine (learning how to share is hard 🙂 so i didn’t want him to come along.

    I did ask for his input for the veil and showed him the matching jacket I made.

    Plus, I really want the moment when he sees me walking down the aisle to be teh first time he sees the dress.
