my now dh came shopping with me.   i trust his judgement.  he ended up buying my dress for me.


@Pokemon:  i agree that the dress being a secret is fading.  heck, my dh zipped me up.  we got ready together.

My husband saw a picture of the dress I bought but he never saw ME in the dress before the wedding. 

I really wanted the first time he saw me in my dress to be as I was walking up the beach to him. I’m glad we stuck to that plan, he said he got a lil emotional seeing me for the first time as I was walking towards him.

I wish I could take my fiance dress shopping! Most of the dress shops in my areas don’t allow males in the backrooms (where all the dresses are) because there are other ladies getting changed. If I were to take him dress shopping at these places, he would have to sit in a separate room and I would walk out wearing anything I wanted him to see, so not very convenient. On top of that, most of the days I go dress shopping, he’s usually got something else on.

On the other hand, fiance isn’t keen on dress shopping anyway, so I think he’s glad how it’s worked out. I have been making him check out photos of the dresses I’ve tried

my fi went dress shopping with me. the time i picked the dress he wasn’t with me though. i’m not all about keeping it a secret. the most important opinion of my dress is his and mine. i would not want to be wearing a dress on our wedding day with him hating it.

I agree with you that it’s slowly fading out, but I can’t imagine taking my fiance shopping with me. 

I want to get to see the look on his face when he sees me in my dress for the first time.  I don’t want that moment to take place in a bridal store with me in a dress that’s 5 sizes too big and all clipped in the back.

I have shown him some pictures of dresses I like though, just to get a feel if he likes similar styles to what I like.

My FH has said he doesn’t want to know anything about the dress. Which is going to kill me, because I can’t keep secrets from him for shit.

I’d kind of hoped we’d be able to get ready together on the day, because I know I’m going to be stressed out of my mind, and he’d calm me down, but alas the kibosh has kinda been put on that as well. *sigh*
