Oh my gosh, he won’t care when he actually sees you in it. Don’t worry about it.

I think that you could wear a burlap sack and at that moment, as he’s preparing to spend the rest of your life together, he will think you’re the most beautiful woman in the world.
My personal thought is that it’s far more important how you feel in your dress, and if you think you look beautiful, than what anyone else, including your FI thinks.

Hmmm. Do you have dress regret because it is not what you think he will like, or because you truly dont like the dress anymore?
When most brides shop for a gown, they find the style they think they LOVE doesn’t always suit them and many end up with a dress style they never thought they would like. I think your FI will love your dress when he sees you in it, even if it isn’t what he thinks he likes in a dress style.
If you fell in love with your dress and it was that special moment that you knew this was YOUR dress, then just imagine how he will react when he sees you on your special day!
I wouldnt buy another dress unless you are truly not happy with it anymore.

Hes a dude. He doesn’t know a darn thing about dress silhouettes. He will love the overall effect. He won’t remember the hour of SYTTD that he watched 7 months before the wedding.
Do you really think he’s going to say “dang, I wish you wore a ball gown.”. No. He won’t.

Hmmm…this is an interesting situation. When you say he “likes” poofy dresses, does that necessarily mean he absolutely hates anything else? Expecially taking into consideration that a poofy dress may or may not be what you like or what looks best on your body type? Just because he has casual opinions one way or the other doesnt mean he will disliked what you picked out. You picked out your dress because you looked awesome in it and because you loved it. You are going *glow* in that dress. He would have to have a a lot of hatred for your style of dress for it to really affect him.
Only you can decide whether you think he will really hate your dress, and then it’s up to you if you won’t be giving up something you really loved (plus a lot of money) and whether it’s worth it. But I have a feeling, he doesn’t really hate your style of dress and was just making some casual comments about what he was picturing.

Honestly, he won’t care. All he will see is you as his bride, AND remember that most guys have no fashion sense. We all know how different dresses look on one person compared to another, and I’m sure you look STUNNING in your gown! Don’t let his opinion get to you. 🙂

Your man will like you in whatever you wear. He can say all he wants about dresses, but the important bit is what’s in them. Meaning… well, you 🙂

If you love your dress, don’t worry about it. I’m sure he’s going to think you look amazing!!

+1 to what everyone else has said.
He will love you in whatever you wear that day.

I agree with others. On your wedding day, he will be so totally caught up in how beautiful you look no matter what style your dress is!

Check out these responses. He will think you look beautiful no matter how puffy the skirt is.

I went through the same thing, but in reverse. I actually switched my dress to a more fitted dress. It gave me major anxiety, and in the end he knew that something was up and encouraged me to go with whatever I wanted. I ended up switching back to ball gown. Go with your gut. He is going to love you in white dress, all jacked up. He’s marrying you because he loves you. I ended up spending a lot of time and energy worrying about his input, but in the end his biggest concern was that I feel beautiful, I suspect your FI feels the same.

He probably won’t even notice if your dress is fit and flare or ballgown. Don’t change it!!

If he’s anything like my FI he’s not going to remember the episode of SYTTD this evening, let alone on your wedding day!
