    ugh…. really though I’d let it go..

    I can gaurantee that your Fiance did not get the image that you get when hearing “ball gown”

    He probably won’t even really think about it again. lol

    Its ok. Even though he knows its a ballgown he doesnt know what it looks like or what it looks like on you.

    There are so many different variations of “ball gown” that a man has no idea what to think. I wouldn’t change it if you love it.

    There are literally thousands of variations of a “ball gown.” If your man is anything like mine than I wouldn’t worry too much about the surprise being spoiled. I know my man wouldn’t reallly be able to fully visualize what I am going to look like just by knowing the shape of my dress! He doesn’t know what your hair will be like, if you’re wearing a veil or not (or what it will look like), he doesn’t know the details of the dress, the cut of the bust line, your accessories, etc. etc. The truth is many women get married in a “ball gown” type of dress and I think a lot of guys picture that anyway when they are thinking about wedding dresses. Your friend probably should have kept quiet, but honestly it’s not that bad. He didn’t see a photo afterall. I think it will be fine to keep the dress you already have 🙂

    That sucks! I would be upset too. I think you should just keep the dress. I really doubt that your Fiance will have any idea what it looks like even though she said it was a ball gown. My Fiance wouldn’t even know what that means. Trust me. He will still be very surprised.

    @Willow1991:

    It will be ok! Trust me, Mr.ND has snuck a peek at photos of my dress (TWICE) and all he could tell you is that it’s white…he thinks. Lol. Your Fiance knowing it’s a ballgown is only like 10% of the info. He’s got no clue what it’s made of, the cut of the neckline or how it hugs your body. When he sees you all glammed up on the big day, he won’t be 10% disappointed that he knew it was a ballgown, he’ll just be in awe of his wife.

    I dont think its worth getting a new dress over.  Like PP said, there are so many variations, poofiness, neckline, detail.  He still has no clue how it actually looks.

    @Willow1991:He’s a guy. Does he really know what a ballgown is, and how it’s different from a big A-line with lots of crinoline?
    This is not a key detail. He’s going to imagine the ballgowns from cartoons he saw as a kid–he still has no idea what dress you have.

     

    Plus if you get another one, the same friends might slip again.

     

    Not worth it.

    I think that ‘ball gown’ really isn’t enough of a description for a guy so I don’t think you need to worry about it.

    Totally not worth getting upset over. Let it go and keep your dress.
