So I said yes to the dress yesterday at a sample sale so I took it home right away! 🙂 and I had my mom and my sis (moh) with me so they have seen it on me. And my brother got a peak when I brought it home, on the hanger. I though I would have my Future Mother-In-Law with me when I shop so she would see it too but it was a last minute sale we went to and she wasnt there, so I though I would send her a couple pics as well as my Future Sister-In-Law (BM), and my other Bridesmaid or Best Man (friend), and maybe my dad (?) That’s all. I don’t want anyone else seeing it. And today mom is like don’t show it to anyone, let it be a surprise. She wants the only people to see my dress be her and my sis and brother. Like wtf? I always though I would let all my BMs see it and my Future Mother-In-Law.
So who saw your dress before the wedding?

My mom is making my dress, so lots of people are seeing it! Not Fiance, especially as we live a 7h flight from my parents, so fewer chances for him to see it anyway! I’ve sent a photo of me in the test dress to my BMs, and my dad and brother and other family members will see it at the house next the hanger. Even if they do see it before there is still something magical about you in that dress at that moment on the big day. I’m not really sure what the point of having the dress totally secret is anyway these days. I’m pretty sure that Fiance would marry me in a paper bag anyway!

Also, I forgot to say congratulations on finding a dress! How exciting!

I’ve shown picturs to anybody who has asked. The only person not allowed to see it is my Fiance.

My mom and best friend/MOH were the only ones to see it in person before the wedding but my dad, brother, Mother-In-Law, Father-In-Law, Brother-In-Law, SIL, an aunt, and a couple of friends saw pictures of it. As long as my husband didn’t see it (his preferance, I wanted his opinion on it!) then I was happy to share pictures with anyone who asked!

The only ones that saw me in my dress beforehand were my immediate family (mom, brother, dad) and my bridesmaids. Oh yeah, and two people from work but I regretted showing them as I hadn’t shown others when they asked. I really wanted my dress to be a surprise to everyone so I kept it to myself (as best I could).

- Wedding: April 2017 - City, State
Congrats on finding your dress!
I’ve shown it to a number of people. Only my mother, my sisters, and a cousin know for sure what my dress is. Some people have seen my dress when I was showing them pictures of all the dresses I tried on, but they don’t know which dress out if the ones I showed them that I picked.

anybody who wanted to. I really didn’t care if it was a secret or not. In fact half our guests saw me dressed before the ceremony as well. I offered to show my husband ahead of time but he really just didn’t care. Clothes are clothes, lol.

I went shopping alone, so no one has seen it in person. I’ve shown pics to my mom, bridesmaids, Future Mother-In-Law, and the lovely ladies of weddingbee 😉

I’ve shown photos to a couple of people at work but they wont be at the wedding. My mum is the only person to see it in person.

Anyone LOL…I didn’t care.
My DH saw a picture of me in it and on the actual day, I don’t think he even remembered what it looked like except that it was “white”. My dress is ivory but I don’t expect him to know the difference..LOL

I show people a picture of a model in my dress but not me in it. That lets me gush if someone asks but I can keep me in the dress to a minimum. So far my mom has shown a bunch of her work friends but I don’t care about that. At the wedding the only people that have seen me in it before will be just my bridal party and mom. My dad doesn’t even want to see it!

My mum and one of my sisters (MOH) were with me when I found my dress, so they’ve seen it (well the sample I tried on). My step mum and my other sister (bridesmaid) came with me to pick the dress up, so they’ve seen it. I also showed my dad when I got home (just on the hanger). My Future Mother-In-Law and FSILs have seen a photo of me wearing the sample. My childhood best friend, who’s unable to come to the wedding, has also seen a photo of me in the sample. At this stage, no one else has seen the dress – my grandmother has seen a photo of the lace, as she wants the actual dress to be a surprise.

Same. I’ve shown the dress to anyone who’s asked. The only person who will not see it is my fiance
