    @raisedonrobbery:  Don’t tell him! It will be a wonderful surprise 😀 Is it a style that he’s into?

    Don’t tell him! I don’t know why someone would tell their Fiance anyway. It would just ruin the surprise.

    @raisedonrobbery:  My fiance said that he would want to know. But, we can’t exaclty afford for me to buy a new dress on a whim. So for finacial reasons, I would tell him (unless that isn’t an issue).  

    Is there a reason for not telling him? You don’t have to show him the dress this time around.

    I would tell Fiance, but wouldn’t show him pictures of either dress

    I’d say not to tell him.

    I don’t know your Fiance, but I know that if it were my husband he wouldn’t even notice it was a different dress from the one he looked at in pics, but still it’d be fun to tell him later.

    @raisedonrobbery:  Don’t do it! I keep sending Fiance pics of what I want and then I kick myself. I think I’ve made up my mind on the dress I want but I have already shown him so I lied and told him that I picked a different one, just so he’s SEMI surprised! lol.

    Encore Bride here (so have been down this “aisle” twice)

    Lol, your Wedding Day is HUGE.  And altho guys don’t get into it the same extent as us gals, it is an incredible feeling when they see you for the first time… and find themselves SPEACHLESS at how incredibly beautiful you look.

    NOTHING compares in life, not any other compliment you’ll ever get in life, to when they see you for the first time, their words to tell you how GORGEOUS you look.

    There is a reason why the FIRST LOOK is so important… cherish that moment !!

    Hope this helps,

    Silly me, I showed Fiance the first dress I bought. I thought I really liked that dress until I went to the seamstress this week and realized I hated the dress. There was no way I was going to wear this on my wedding day. I went out and bought another dress that I absolutely love. I told fi I got a new dress. He was happy I did. He admitted to me he really didn’t like the first one. He tried to find out some things about the new dress but this time I did not say a single word. It will be a total surprise the day we get married.

    My FH knows a few things about my dresses. 

    He knows one of them had a corset and he knows one of them is blue… and he’s actually seen both but only stock photos amid the probably few HUNDRED stock photos of wedding dresses I showed him haha.

    @This Time Round:  Awwww… Your comment made me tear-up!! So true 🙂


    OP, I voted don’t tell him! What a wonderful suprise it would be – especially if he didn’t love the first dress 🙂

    Actually, I’m starting to think that when I go dress shopping that I might take some pictures of myself in a horrible puffy-sleeved 80’s style dress and then send it to my SO. How could he not love the dress I really choose after seeing something like that!! 😛
