    I’m tyring to keep him away cause I want it to be a surprise but he’s so bad! He looks over my shoulder every time I’m looking at dresses online. He also wants input on the dress! No backseat groom for me!

    My fiance has seen a picture of it (on the model), but that was before I bought it.  He said it’s “Stunning” so I know he likes it.  But he doesn’t know that’s the one I purchased.  🙂

    OMG I would never!  Not because of tradition but because hes so judgemental.  Its so great that he likes it as much as you do!

    My groomy has to wait to see me, lol.  I dunno if we’re doing a first look yet — I’d be okay with that but he doesn’t get to see the dress until the big day.

    My FI doesn’t want to see my dress until the special day and I’m glad he feels that way.  For me personally it’s not about the whole “tradition” thing, it’s about me and him and that special moment.  I can’t wait to walk down the asile and see him staring at me at the altar.  I’m hoping he gets emotional and sheds a tear!  We shall see lol

    I would show him, but my mom and my FMIL are insisting that I don’t show him.  To please them (because, well, everything else has been my decision), I’m not showing him.  But I have described it to him!

    Yes I will be showing him, I don’t play into the whole its bad luck game. I probably be texting him a pic once I purchase it.

    I don’t think it’s bad luck, but I want the photographer to capture the look on his face when he sees me in it, so I’m making him wait.  He picked what he was wearing, but I “tweaked” it a bit to match my dress.
