My FI has been a huge part of the wedding planning process and to be honest I’ve been wanting his opinion on everything (cause I want him to love it!)… so I’ve shown my top contenders (on models) and asked which he has liked most and told him which I am leaning towards. I dont really believe in the luck thing, but I do still want him to be surprised and mesmerized when he sees me! Lol, thoughts?

I actually wouldn’t mind showing him the dress, but HE was the one who didn’t want to see me in it because he wanted to be surprised! Even if they don’t show it, I think many men still appreciate that special feeling of seeing you so beautiful and dolled up on your wedding day 🙂
But, again, I personally think it’s no big deal and would have loved to show it to him and get his opinion.

I showed Mr. LK photos of me in the dress because he wanted to see them. No harm, no foul. 🙂

DH helped me into my dress when it arrived and took pictures. He was still mesmerized on the day 🙂

I feel the same way op! I’ve been showing him dresses and I even showed him a few thative tried on myself. I know what his suit will look like but I’m not going with him to buy it!

I showed him mine on accident when I was showing him a picture of something else on my phone. I was flipping through my photos, didn’t think it was anywhere close, and then it popped up. this was a few months ago and I started crying, I was so upset! He says all he remembers now is the neckline. (Sweetheart)

My dress is hanging in the closet so FI sees it all the time. I won’t let him see it on me until our big day though.

I’m not showing my FI, but I don’t see anything wrong with it. Neither of us are superstitious but he insists on not seeing me in the dress before I walk down the aisle.

I wouldn’t mind him seeing the dress/seeing me in the dress, but he absolutely REFUSES to look at it. Which sucks because he’s my best friend and I reeeally want his opinion!

I stupidly bought my dress over a year before my wedding. I am already having a hard time keeping it a secret from him!

Thanks ladies for your responses — we’re doing a first look anyway, so I guess in reality for me its not a big deal showing it to him before. I’ve showed him the dress but not me in it yet, tho I am dying to… haha

I voted “other” because he has seen my dress but has no idea it’s “my dress”…after I saw the dress in a store (before I even tried it on) I came home and saw it in a magazine and showed him to see what he thought because I knew I was going to go back and try it on. So yes, he’s seen it but it was before I even knew it was going to be the “one” and I didn’t tell him after I bought it either.

My fiance went dress and shoe shopping with me and has been pretty involved in all of the fun parts of planning the wedding. I don’t believe in superstitions and I really don’t understand the point of the ‘not showing your fiance the dress’ tradition. We are a pretty non traditional couple and I think 95% of the fun is planning the wedding and enjoying every moment leading up to the day.

I’m having a hard time not showing him. I love it so much, I just want to share it with him. But I won’t.
He told my FMIL that he’d “bought a wedding dress” (I put it on his CC for the airmiles) and she was immediately “You didn’t see it did you!?!”. She’s in her late 70’s, and that’s pretty much the only comment she’s made about anything, so I gather it’s important to her.lol
I think I will leave it at the salon until the week of the wedding, because I really don’t trust myself. 🙂

I am not showing him but can totally see why some would want to! It’s hard not to talk about it with the person you’re closest with.
As I read somewhere else, “A wedding is not a surprise party for the groom.” If you want to show him and he’s good with it, go for it!
