    Is it the one you showed us on another post? With the deep V back?  If so- He doesn’t like it? Whaaaat. May I ask, what’s the “dumb reason”?

    My Fiance won’t get to see it until we get married, but if by chance he saw it before & disliked it– I probably wouldn’t wear it.

    Aww sad. It’s such a classic dress… what a dilemma!

    This is probably unfair to lots of men, but I think guys have a hard time visualizing how things will look. They see somethng on a runway model (ps why do the bride models always look SO unhappy) and can’t really imagine what it would look like on you in the context of the day.  You really know what works on your body, and how you want to look that day. If you are talking about the Lela Rose dress, I personally veto your husband and say BUY IT! 🙂

    YES. I did buy one that he saw a picture of and said he didn’t like because it was a “mermaid” style (WHATEVER, the dress starts flaring immediately below the waist at the hip line). But it was my favorite, and I know he’ll love it on me, so I’m not going to let that stop me from wearing what looks best. 😉

    What doesn’t he like?

    The dress is gorgeous?

    I need to know the reason before I decide whether I would or not!

    I definitely sympathize with how you’re feeling! My fiance didn’t like any of the dresses I started out looking at, either, and it was very frustrating. I would agree with the other girls that it depends on his reason. If it’s something small and silly like you say, maybe he won’t even notice! After all, he’ll be looking at his new bride, not her dress. 🙂

    Let me just tell you… I showed then-fiance a batch of pictures that included my dress.  He said that for the most part they were all just fine, but just don’t get the hideous one with the poofy train.  He hated that one!  (which also happened to be my dress).

    The fact was, that the Dolce (my dress) was the one that stood out from the crowd.  It was different and bold, so he noticed it.

    I never doubted for a second that he would love it when he saw it.  And when he did see it, he thanked me for not listening to him.  Guys are many things, but for the most part fashion guru is not in their repetoire!

    I should say that I almost took it as a good sign that he didn’t like my dress… He really is the antithesis of fashion!

    I think I would still wear one if he doesnt like it. Thats the one thing the bride gets final say on and does not need input from someone else (unless they’re paying for it). It’s all hers, she has to wear it, and she is the one wants to feel like she’s smoking! I know I would be a little disappointed if Mr. Joe said he didnt like my wedding dress, but I also know there’s no way he’d ever really remember it anyway unless I showed him pictures again. Different dresses look different on different people and that’s not something guys really understand. A tux is a tux is a tux and all guys look good in them so how COULD they understand? lol

    My fiance and I went through some cut-outs that I had for possibilities.  He didn’t like any of them.  He said, “They all have the fancy stuff, what is it called?” It was lace.  He said they all had to much lace.  Anyway, I love lace. Lace, lace, lace. It’s just so girly and romantic. I haven’t bought my dress yet, but I decided I’m not going to listen to his comment.  The day of, he will be so excited and think I look beautiful no matter what I wear.

    My advice, take his reason into consideration. If it’s a good reason, then your decision is harder.  If it’s a silly reason, go with the dress.  If you really like the dress, you’ll shine in it and the day of he’ll think you’re beautiful.

    My fiance picked the dress I ended up sticking with as his last choice, but then again, i think he was thinking more practically (it’d be easier and less ebay to keep the other one, plus 50 bucks less $) than anything.  Honestly though, I don’t think they’ll really care between one or the other – they’ll just see you.

    It’s your wedding day—I’m sure he’ll think you look gorgeous despite his phobia of crinoline (or whatever it is he dislikes about the dress.) As long as you are confident and know you look amazing, he’ll think that, too.

    It doesn’t really look all that asymetrical to me… However, is it possible to find a dress VERY similar that one without that asymetrical lines, or get it alterered somehow? I only ask because if it does REALLY bother him on the wedding day, he’d be starting at your chest the whole time lol
