Bringing your fiance dress shopping?
Posted 05 February 2007 - 02:41 PM
On a side note, be careful how detailed you get if you ask him opinions before you go shopping. It turned out that exactly the type of dress that he was saying he didn't like (sheath style or trumpet style) actually looks really good on me, but I still steered away for that reason. I probably would have bought a different dress if it wasn't for how adamant he was about not liking that style. Afterwards, I told him that I avoided some dresses because of his opinion and he was like "I told you I didn't want to tell you because I knew this would happen!". Point taken...

Also, I don't know if all guys are like this but mine really wanted to BE surprised and didn't even want me to talk about it around him. And I'm glad he was like that...it was amazing seeing the look on his face when I walked down the aisle that day. Definitely one of the best parts of the day!

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?

gkashmira, thanks for your offer. After discussing this with my MOH she will be flying to L.A. next week to help me get it together. But that is sooooo sweet of you to offer. Maybe we should get together sometime anyway.
I want to keep the dress simple and inexpensive, but not too casual. I want it to look like a wedding dress, not just a party dress. I would prefer to keep it at or under $1000 which seems low for a wedding dress, but I have found several destination dresses by Mon Cheri that I like, and they fall within that range. I think if the wedding was indoors I would go all out, but I'll be barefoot in the sand so I want to keep it beachy and fun.
Thanks everyone!!!! You all rock!!!

I also want to keep my price down under $1000 and went to the group usa store (i posted info about it on another post) and really liked some of the dresses there and the most expencive was like 650. I am thinking about going and then posting pictures for you ladies to vote on that way I am not alone in this big choice!

Now I've narrowed it down and will bring my mom & sister to check them out. I wanted to stay under $1000 too, and I thought I was going to be able to do it too, until the last time I went and my two favorite dresses were $1000 & $1500. FI says don't worry about what it costs, but I feel guilty spending that much money on a dress that I'm going to where for a few hours.
Oh, and as for justifying the cost, you could always wear the dress at breakfast or something like Natasha does! lol - I just LOVE that she does that!
