Ok, I think a lot of you will agree with me, not to show their dress (or pics of the dress) to your Fiance before the wedding. We want the sparkle in his eyes, when he sees us first walking down the aisle – totally overwhelmed how beautiful we look.
So we don’t tell him, what our dress looks like. But what about the rest? Will you show your Fiance pictures of the hairsyle you picked?
Here’s my story: I know my Fiance likes my hair rather down or half-up, but my hair is straight (as hell) and after an hour all curls would be gone… next problem: I have a picture in my head, of me dancing all night – in hot July – and my down or half-up hair sticking to my neck. GROSS!
So I decided I really need an updo! 4 days ago I went to a hairstylist to get to know the salon and I totally fell in love with an updo (in a hairstyle-book). In my mind I already had that image of me with my dress and that updo – so I was REALLY excited! I went home and decided to show the pic of the updo to my FI!
His reaction: “That looks like a piece of cr*p.”
Ok, so I’m going to change my hairstyle-plan, because I don’t think I like it any more. But I’m a busy bee and I already found another updo and actually I like it even more (maybe because he likes it too…)
Did (will you )you tell and show pictures?
I’d love to see your hairstyles! Did you stick to the same hairstyle the whole time?
Here’s the updo, he didn’t like:
Here’s my new idea (I love the make-up, too):

He doesn’t get to see anything or know anything about my wedding look – dress, hair, shoes, jewelry – nothing. It’s mostly because the thing I’m looking forward to the most at the wedding is him seeing me for the first time. Also, I just don’t want to hear it if he doesn’t like something. I mean, I don’t think he will because he digs my style, but it would piss me off if he did. On the day of the wedding, he will think I look perfect anyway.

Yes, I agree with you: On the day of the wedding all our FH’s will think we look perfecty… so maybe the way you do it is the best way?

I was wondering about this…..what am I going to do for the rest of the day after I get my hair trial done??? Avoid him, wash it out immediately???

@ Shaema: Oh yeah – that’s really a problem! Maybe let thetrial be done, before you go to a party and don’t tell him it’s your style for the wedding and he’ll think it’s just for the party?

- Wedding: July 2010 - Anela Garden Chapel & Japanese Cultural Center, Honolulu
my Fiance saw my hair when he picked me up from my hair trial, lol. actually he will see all parts of my wedding-day look, dress, makeup, etc… just not everything all at once. Plus I don’t think he’ll remember what my hair looked like 6 months beforehand anyway.

He will probably end up seeing it. My trial is on Saturday and when I get home he will be there. I dont want to take my hair and mu off right away because I want to see how long it will last.

I won’t be telling him. I want my entire look to be a surprise.

Uh, no. Not to tease on some of you too harshly, but I am marrying a dude. He has spent maybe five minutes total in his whole life thinking about my hair, most of it when I ask him how my new style looks and his eyes go blank like a deer in headlights as he tries to remember what the old style was.
I hadn’t even thought about it being a surprise or not. I just couldn’t imagine what he would say other than, “whatever you like.” Do some of you have men who are actually opinionated about how you wear your hair? It isn’t like anyone plans on going two days without washing and putting it up in a neon pink scrunchy on their wedding day!

I am keeping the dress, hairstyle, jewelry, EVERYTHING a secret!! If he does find out minor details like my hair or jewelry I won’t mind because like other ladies said earlier, he won’t remember those details anyways! lol

I picked a few i liked that had the “feel” i wanted to go for. He saw the ones I liked b/c i was so indecisive i wanted to know what he thought looked good on me. I’m pretty sure his eyes glazed over. Anyways, my sister in law put a bunch of the looks together and it was fabulous! We just tweaked it a little for the day of (a little looser in back, a little more tease). He’s just very much “that’s girl stuff” about it.

It’s funny, but that was one of the most important things to him. HE sent me the ideas for my hair.

@ Snowflake: Unbelievable! What were his ideas?
Post # 15
@Snowflake, OMG! Show us!
I played that game with Darling Husband with “show me dresses you like for me” and i ended up ROFL at the not-me dresses he chose

No. I don’t tell him how to do his hair or how to dress as it isn’t any of my business and he doesn’t tell me how to do mine. It has nothing whatsoever to do iwth being superstitious because neither of us believe in that stuff.
