I went and placed the deposit on my wedding dress on Thursday. I was giddy and excited, so when I went out on Saturday night and had several people ask me about the wedding, I felt compelled to mention that I had purchased my dress. That started off the slew of requests for details, for pictures, and all sorts of information that I am not interested in giving…especially when my Fiance is standing next to me! How do I respond to people now that I’ve got the dress? It was so much easier when I hadn’t picked it out yet!

Just tell them you are keeping it a secret. They’ll move on. Most people are just asking to me nice anyway.

just say that its all a secret for now and will be revealed on the day – there is nothing wrong with keeping wedding details private so stand your ground

@flamingred:Yup, agree with flamingred. Tell them it’s a secret and you don’t want any details leaking back to your Fiance. Flamingred is probably right that they are partly just being polite in asking.

I ALWAYS have people ask to see a picture…I know they mean well and are excited sometimes, but it’s always so uncomfortable for me because in my mind I am just assuming that people should know that some brides don’t want to show their dress! Even before I wasengaged and a “bride” I never thought of ever asking to see someone’s dress unless they offered! I always feel weird and don’t know what to say when they ask….

I had someone ask to see a picture (a coworker who is invited to the wedding) lastweek. I didn’t quite know how to respond, i was caught off guard, so i quickly googled and showed her a pic. TOTALLY regretting it now 🙁

Just giggle and say they’ll have to wait for the big day AKA: Reveal!
People are just being nosey, at first I gave into it, and shared some small details but then quickly got over that. Its for me to know, and my Fiance to find out, and they can find out when he does 🙂

I kept mine a secret. Only my mom and my bridesmaids saw my dress before hand.

My answer would probably be, “It’s beautiful, or I wouldn’t have picked it. Can’t wait for you to see it! In person.” lol. But… I feel like it’s kind of duhhhhh to ask about that in front of your Fiance. People can be oblivious.

I dont even tell ppl i’ve bought mine unless they specifically ask if i’ve bought it [which they usually dont] and even then I just say its a surprise for the big day. I have no intention of sending everyone pics or describing it to everyone

Tell people it is tye-dye zebra stripped with mesh cutouts. That should shut them up. 😀 But the secret idea is good too. 😀

Telling people its a secret is no big deal-people are usually only asking to be nice and show some interest, not because they really want to see pics.

Yep, telling people it’s a secret is no big deal. I didn’t care though, so I just told people, except in front of my husband. I’d just start in with “It’s white and…” and he’d go “lalalalalala” with his ears covered, and people got the hint.
