Yeesh, I don’t blame you! Did you ever see that episode of Say Yes to the Dress where a girl though she found her dress, but she wanted her fiance’s approval and he shot it down immediately after she and her mom had been gushing over it?

I think I would cry if Fiance said he didn’t like the dress I picked, and I’m usually not that sensitive of a person!

Oh GOSH when my friend was getting married right out of college, she tried to tell me her fiance was coming along for wedding dress/bridesmaid dress shopping. I had to put my foot down. I was like, YOU DON’T DO THAT, not even for “tradition”‘s sake of not having the groom see the dress before the wedding, but because men have NO place tagging along on a dress excursion! It’s weird and uncomfortable.

@ohheavenlyday: That’s a really good point! When I tried dresses on at DB, it was so awkward seeing all the men there because the consultant would open the door when I just had on the corset/crinoline combo. Not cool.

@jo.lee:

Ugh, I know, and they just don’t get why you might have to try the same 3 dresses on 3 times each or go back and re-try on another one, or dicker over the difference between two shades of green or whatever. It was just not necessary for him to be there, and I told her that it was going to look really weird going into bridal salons with her maid of honor… and fiance.

@His_Swallow: Put your foot down! Tell him: I love you, and your opinions matter, but that’s a big Nega-tory my love!

 

@ohheavenlyday: Not only that, but it’s hard for a man to imagine the “big picture” when you look like hot garbage after trying on a thousand wedding dresses under the glare of harsh fluorescents.

@His_Swallow:

I quit showing FH pictures of dresses to get a feel for what he preferred for that reason. If he didn’t think the model was attractive, the dress was unattractive by default. He could not picture it on me in the context of a wedding and not a runway or ad layout, so I quit showing him on the theory that he’ll like whatever I’m wearing anyway. LOL.

@His_Swallow: That would completely devastate me too! And if I asked Fiance the difference between ivory, diamond white and white, his head might explode :).

Fiance always just says everything is nice, though. I showed him the picture of the dress SoontobeMrsA has as her profile pic (it sort of looks like a chicken, but she did it as a joke!), and told him it looked like my dress and he just said “That looks nice, hun.”

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to find a dress is David’s Bridal $99 sale.  Also Deb’s has some nice looking dresses especially this time of year.  Actually a lot of stores should have some nice dresses with prom season around the corner.
