Bringing your fiance dress shopping?
Posted 05 February 2007 - 03:47 AM
Is the dress supposed to be a total surprise?

I have to admit that I also hhad diffciculty with not taking my Fi because I rely on him for his opinion on so many things! But anyway my vote is Keep It a Surprise!

My bridesmaids have instructed me to take pictures and email them since they are far from me, so I will (sort of) have their help. I'm just such a sap My fiance and I do everything together so my instinct is to involve him in this.
You've given me something to think about, maybe I should go it alone and keep him in suspense until June?

I am just asking because I am very far away also and I took a friend from work and she was so excited I asked her to go...I really don't think you should take your FI because I know mine personally is excited to see me all done up that day. I did however have him look through the david's bridal catalog and pick out which ones he liked so I had a better idea of what he was picturing for me-of course he has no idea which one I picked, but I think that's the best part of the wedding day.

I have been doing all my dress shopping alone so far and it's actually easier than you would think. I go in, try on 20 dresses, and am out in an hour. I immediatly know if a dress is a yes or a no - no advice needed. I think it would be so much harder if I had 5 people (or even just FI) with me saying everything looked beautiful. Guess what, every dress doesn't look beautiful.
I think you should try to get one person to go with you if you really need it, but not FI. You only get that surprise factor once in your life. You don't want to tell your kids "the first time daddy saw me in my dress was in the David's Bridal dressing room."

I have also gone shopping by myself, most of the times I've gone, and I love it. Its so much better than having a million people with you giving their opinions. I've know narrowed my dress choices down to 4 (really 2, but I wanted to have a few dresses to show my mom & sister) so I'll try those on for them in a couple of weeks and make my final decision.

I also showed my FH bridal magazines to get his opinion, that is as far as I will go, he will not know which one I picked, untill he sees me in it.

All of my friends are in another state as well. For the most part, I went dress shopping alone - and rather enjoyed it! I could tell what I liked, w/o the opinions of anyone else influencing me. I did bring one of Paul's girlfriends after I had narrowed it down to 2 dresses - and she reaffirmed my pick.
