I would love to go looking for my dress with my mom, sister and fiance. They are all superstitious and think its a bad idea. Its just that I want his approval ultimately.
What do you think? Are you superstitious? Or do you think its fine?

Fiance doesn’t get to see the dress till we do our “First Look”, not so much for bad luck or anything, I just like surprises.

Does your fiance really want to see it or does he want a surprise at all? You could always try on dresses with him as a preliminary and not let him know which one you picked (kind of the way some couples go about E rings) or you could just look through bridal magazines and discuss what you each like.
I am not superstitious about it. My fiance is the one who really wanted to see me for the first time at the ceremony and not before. I would have been ok doing pics before hand if he would have wanted to.
I do think there is a bit of magic in the first time a groom see his bride and it is special regardless if it’s before or at the ceremony.

We decided to do the other way and make a surprise for our parents and all the guests. Me and my Fiance are the only ones who saw the dress

Fi actually picked my dress. He had a dream about a month ago and told me about it the next morning. He drempt about our ceremony. He told me what I was wearing in the dream. I pulled up the pic if the first dress I fell in love with, and it was the exact dress he saw in the dream. That’s when I decided to order the dress! The pic is in another color, but I wanted white. He saw me in white in the dream. That’s how I know it’s the perfect dress.

my Fiance came shopping with me and he is the one that told me to try on the dress that i ultimately ended up buying. we are also doing first look pictures before the wedding.

I don’t really believe in bad luck, but there is no way I would do anything to ruin that moment where he’ll see me for the first time all done up at the church! I can’t wait to see his face. 🙂

I don’t really see anything wrong with it, but my Fiance refuses to see me in the dress. He goes nuts everytime I almost break down to show him photos of even the dresses i didn’t choose! 🙂 It’s actually kind of cute.

@Fegele: We are doing the same thing. The only one who knows is me and Fiance. Besides, he doesn’t see the whole package – just the dress.

@-female-: so I voted before I read :/ While I LOVE the idea of doing a first look, Fiance isn’t as keen on it. (But I have almost a year to convince him still, LOL!) so I voted yes.
But I think I meant no: I don’t think that I would have went dress shopping with him, though. We’re both pretty opinionated sometimes, and those opinions aren’t always the same, which I love, b/c we can talk and debate, etc. However, I know he’s gonna cry like a baby when he sees me for the first time on our wedding day no matter what I’m in. (unless it’s like a paper sack or something!)
@pengoala: that’s completely adorable!!!

I voted No for shopping w/ the Fiance. I’m for the 1st look on the day of the wedding though . My Fiance and I will being taking “First Look” photos. I think it will ease both of our jitters so I won’t trip down the aisle or he passes out @ the alter.

He’s seen most of the dresses I’ve looked at online, just like I’ve seen all the rings he’s looked at online. I don’t know the final ring, he won’t know the final dress. But I wouldn’t really freak out about it if he did see me in it beforehand.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with bringing your fiance along. I actually wanted him to come but he wasn’t feeling it (said he’d be “bored”). After I decided on the dress I showed him some pictures of me in it just to make sure he liked it (and he did!).
Lets be honest, these are men we’re talking about and 8/10 of them aren’t going to remember a damn thing about that dress if they see it before the wedding.

You could go shopping with him and try on a bunch and hear his thoughts on them. Pick one but don’t let him know which. I saw this on maybe say yes to the dress? Or some other dress show! 🙂

@chasesgirl:Same here, we are doing first look but nothing sooner. I am dying for him to see the dress but I really want it to be a surprise.
