Dress, garter, hair, veil.. basically my look in general! I’ve tried to make sure he approves of any of the other details. It would be easier if I just made some decisions by myself, though! I like so many things, so I ask him to help me choose, and he says “I like all of them!” :-l Lol.

Not so much secrets as my Fiance is pretty active in planning the wedding. He may not know specifics in some things like exact names of flowers but for the most part, he’s pretty aware and has distinct opinions on some things.

In terms of the details and ceremony and reception, nothing. We been planning this together along with our wedding planner and we are all on the same page. He probably going to see my dress, but won’t see the full effect of everything until day off. I may get a gift or write a letter for day of.

My whole look was a secret of course. He had no clue of my dress, accessories, outfits, etc. He didn’t really know about the flowers, but he also didn’t care. Wasn’t a big secret. 

The only thing I really truly kept a secret was our cake topper. He didn’t have any opinions on the cake or topper (or much of anything else), but I was afraid if he saw that it was Disney he would form an opinion quickly, haha. So I kind of didn’t tell him. I didn’t even have a cake topper in mind originally, it was just going to be more buttercream flowers. But someone gifted me an adorable Mickey and Minnie wedding topper at my bridal shower (where Darling Husband was not in attendance), and I knew it had to be cake topper.

I’m singing to him at our ceremony right after we exchange rings. He has no idea. I’m so excited.

Nothing! We pretty much planned the entire thing together. He never saw my dress on me prior to our wedding day, but it definitely wasn’t a surprise because he saw pictures and helped me pick it out.

I think I might keep my dress a secret, if I can resist, but nothing else would be a secret cause it’s his wedding and why shouldn’t he know?

Dress, hair, make up. He is seriously adamant that he does not see the dress. Whenever I even browse on line, he sheilds his eyes and is like, “NO! Don’t want to see it!”

The only real secret is the dress. Fi and I have been together for all decisions from the cake to the flowers even to my garter. To be honest, as soon as I said “yes” he ran with the planning, figuring out details, songs, almost everything. I had to actually ask him to slow down because I wanted to be more involved with the details and planning lol…the dress on the other hand is a complete surprise!

All the minor and small details.  It’s not a secret but he doens’t really care either way. He has no idea what my dress looks like and won’t until the day of when I walk down the aisle.

He also really has no idea what the real budget is.  I asked him to guess and he just didnt care to LOL.  Our budget is small though and he knows how frugal I am (cheap) so he’s not worried.

I am keeping my dress(es) from him. And the song that I will walk down the aisle to (well sort of). Really that is all. It is his day as well. I feel like he should know most things.
