    Hi peeps,

    My FI and I were looking through some wedding mags last night and he was trying to get an idea of what my dress is like ! He hates not knowing, but I've told him its tough! Anyway he pointed out a few that was similar to mine and called them boring because I've gone for something light and simple, I think hes expecting the big fairytail dress, I hope he's not disssapointed, What do you think ? Anyone else had the same problem? HEEEELP !!! (I've tried to attach a pic but not quite sure how to do it ?)

      Nope, I am not worried at all. But FHhasn't even asked about it. (Hopefully he didn't sneak a peek either since it's in one of the spare bedrooms). I know he will love it!!

      Hi Jodey!

      I'd suggest telling him you're going for the elegant/sleek look rather than princess.

      I'm probably in the other direction - FI wants to go very casual... even mentioned wearing (tailored) shorts to the wedding.

      He keeps showing me pictures of plain, white cotton dresses.

      Um. Hello? I'm getting married here?? I will look like a bride, and he will like it (or deal).

      I tried explaining to him last night that its a wedding, and even if we tell people its casual, if I wear a plain white dress, guests are going to be dressed better than I am. LOL!

      Happily married since 2008

        Lucky you ! I think it because if I was getting married over here I think I would have gone for something toyally different but I want to be comfortable, I don't want anything too heavy, I'm sure he will like it but I think he will be suprised at my choice that is all, we'll see.....

          I wouldn't worry abouit it. They way I look at it is, I bought the most beautiful dress in the world and the one that made me look the best, so how could he not like it? So in our own lives, we ALL have the most beautiful and appropriate dress.

            He is going to LOVE it b/c YOU are wearing it!

            My dress is much more traditional than I expected to wear -- only b/c that's what gave me the WOW factor when I was trying them on! The beachier DW dresses just didn't look right on me, but I couldn't be happier with my choice!

              I totally agree ! I was looking at some dresses that were almost like nighties, but figured it wouldn't feel special enough, don't get me wrong, it has a beautiful train but very simple, no sparkles but thats were I can hopfully do more with jewelry ect...

                Not at all.. When I first started looking for dresses I would show him pictures of what I liked to get his reaction.. So that gave me a good idea what he liked. And then once I actually got my dress I flat out told him "if you don't like it, lie"... LOL

                  Thanks Tammy B, I like your style! LOL
                  I think I'm just panicing, I was even thinking of going back to the shop and trying some different dresses on as although I have put the deposit down I don't think anything has been done yet, I mean I havn't had my first fitting yet as its still so far away, the lady did warn me that it was a little early to be deciding incase I change my mind, How stupid would I look if I went back now and changed my mind !! ?? I don't know... I love the dress so I guess I will stick with it ?

                    If YOU love it, you should definitely stick with it. Your FI will think you look beautiful no matter what!
