I personally would not. I am picking it out with out him and hopefully he won’t see it till I am walking down the aisle =) but even if i was to have him help i could NOT let it be ALL about what he wanted but thats just me

i would prolly not let him pick it because hes not very detail oriented and hed forget what it looks like anyways… i went the picture route and asked fi… well do you like this style and he watched say yes to the dress and would tell me which dresses he liked and which he did not… i def would not bring him with me to pick a dress though! he just wanted me to pick one i like so i guess we are not that type of couple 🙂

I don’t think i would let him pick it out, but I definitely did the sneaky picture thing. We will be seeing each other before the ceremony for pictures so we aren’t too traditional, but its fun to keep a little mystery!

I wouldn’t let him pick out my dress, but I have shown him pictures in magazines and stuff to see what he did/didn’t like. I know that he doesn’t like huge ruffles (which made me sad, because I do), but he’s ok with just about everything else. Other than that–I definitely WON’T show him a picture of my dress once I pick it out or order it, because I would be scared he wouldn’t like it for some crazy guy reason that he wouldn’t even notice once he sees it on me on THE day.

I let him and my dad make the final decision on my dress. I had two dresses that I like, one is Pronovias Formentera and the other is Lazaro 3050. I like them both and they both have different look. One day I would want to buy Formentera, the next day I want Lazaro. I couldn’t decide and I let them make the final decision.

This is the post that I was seeking help.

[Poll] Pronovias Formentera or Lazaro 3050

In the begining of this process I had decided to give him some say in the choice… till I figured out that this wasn’t going to be a choice between one or two, even three dresses.                   “I wanted it to be something that I really loved.” And guess what…From the time that he met me, I’VE been selecting my own clothes! I didn’t have a problem getting him..ya know. LOL

I remember the first time he saw me dressed for church..for some of us it was The Club, some of us, that first Dinner Date. “WOW!!” Well, I seriously thought about the look in eyes when he sees me on the isle…I want it to be one that I’ve never seen before.”2x’s the WOW!!!”                                                                                                                                         So for several reasons.. I totaly agree wit him not seeing the Gown till that one special moment.

@reinab505: Thanks Smile. I had two weeks of eat and sleep dresses. I’m finally at peace with my choice. I don’t let myself looking at the Lazaro 3050 anymore.  If I had bought the Lazaro, I wouldn’t be looking at Formentera either.

heck no!!! I was fairly confident he’d love me no matter what I wore, but I wouldnt have been opposed to asking his opinion if he wanted to give some input (but he didnt. he wanted it to be a surprise). I never would have given him the final say though. He doesn’t know anything about wedding dresses or fit on certain body types or anything. It would have been disasterous.

never. if i let Fiance pick my dress, he would only look at the price tag and pick the cheapest one!!  what i did though because i was SO incredibly indecisive was show him pics of my top choices and get his opinion. although getting an opinion was tough at times, he just didn’t care that much!

when it came down to the final two though, he did something very interesting and different – he took his time, examined the pictures and gave a super long interpretation of what he thought each dress means. then it was up to me. but based on his interpretations, the decision became easy   🙂
