HELLLLLP! So I’m watching ‘say yes to the dress’ and in comes my fiance who starts to watch with me. (BIG BIG mistake.)
Anyway a girl on the show happens to be wearing a dress exactly like mine, and he says “ugh, that looks terrible. I don’t like it. I dont like the skirt” (its a ruffled organza layered skirt.) And then of course he turns to me and says he’s afraid to say anything ‘just in case’. uh, yeah!
Now, he’s a good guy and I know he’d love anything I wore, but oh my god, what are the chances?!…..what do I do now?????? It’s changed my mind a bit, I don’t want him to hate my dress! And now I feel like that’s what I’ll be thinking about! I can’t forget that.
Do I buy a new dress????? I can’t believe that just happened. Advice PLEASE.

I think he is going to be looking at YOU, not your dress. He is going to love it regardless. Your smile in the dress you love is worth it! Plus, I think the same dress can look totally different on different people.. he probably wouldn’t even remember that comment one night watching SYTTD. 🙂

He won’t even remember that dress when he see’s you in your dress. My fiancÃ© does the same thing, says he likes or does not like dresses. Then he says, I just don’t really like wedding dresses. Lol But I know he will love mine. Don’t second guess your dress! He’ll love it!

I totally agree. Men have the memory of a carrot! He wont remember! And its true, the same dress looks totally different on different people. You both will be so happy that day, the dress will be the last thing on your mind.

Been there, done that. Mr Elk has already told me he doesn’t like my dress. I don’t care- I love it, and I feel amazing in it. Yes, I would love it if he loved it, but honestly I don’t really think he is going to be inspecting my dress on the wedding day. I think hes going to be focused on the overall picture, and I think its more important that I feel my best rather than look the way he wants me to look. Other people may have a completely different opinion about this though…

@Sunshine09: Are you talking about one of tonight’s episodes? If so, I think I know the dress you’re talking about, and I loved it! I agree with PP, your fiance will not even remember that he didn’t like the dress on tv. He’s going to see you on your wedding day looking gorgeous in that dress and that’s what he’ll remember.

@elk: I’m envious of your positive attitude. I have to say I do care, even though I do love my dress. I do think you’re right about the overall picture though
I agree with men forgetting (lol) and loving me in it regardless. But awwww, that sucked. 🙁 Took the wind out of my sails a bit. Now I think I might want to look for another dress.

I Just read this post to my Fiance (well, told him about it)
and his immediate response was “But he hasn’t seen HER in it!”
I think you’ll be okay!

Meh. My husband never liked dresses with lots of ruching on that show, but he loved how I looked on our wedding day and my dress had ruching galore!
When he sees you in it, it’ll be a whole different ball game. Promise 🙂

i feel like those fluffy bottom skirts have a lot of variation to them. sometimes i HATE them, sometimes i love them. it’s all in how the fabric is cut.
but anyway, chances are your fiance will totally forget about this by the time your wedding comes around. if you love your dress, im sure he will too.
