I pulled a fast one on my FI...

I told my FI that I found the PERFECT dress online and told him that I really wanted to send him a picture because it was a little different and I wanted him to see it and give me his advice. His initial response was, "just breaking all the traditions, are we?" To which I replied, "but it is just so perfect! I have to show you!"
So I sent him this dress:
Which, shocking enough as it is in its gorgeous tangerine... it also easily converts to a party all night dress... when the skirt comes off, revealing a miniskirt underneath:
I was FULLY anticipating him saying something like, "are you sure that's what you want?" BUT NO!!! HE ACTUALLY LIKED IT! He said the mini skirt at the reception would be hot... and the dress would be easy to dance in.
Since he wasn't letting me try to sell him on the dress, I worked on the color. "I've ALWAYS wanted to wear tangerine to my wedding. Please let me wear tangerine." After a few (like 10) seconds of objections, he said, "anything for my princess."
Not only that... he said, "and you could totally wear that again." By this time I was exasperated... and said, "WHERE?"
...I haven't been able bring myself to tell him it was all a joke.

So I told him by saying that I had another dress for him to look at... and sent him the link to this post.
HILLARIOUS! At first he was like "didn't you just show me that one?"
... and then 5 minutes later.. "WHAT! IT WAS ALL A JOKE?"
So I played the "I'm hurt. You don't know me at all!!" card.
He said "so send me a link to a dress you do actually like." So I sent him this one:
And he was like "WOW! You'd look gorgeous in that!"
And I said, "but it's over my budget. I only budgeted 750 and that has to include the dress, my viel, my shoes, and my undergarments."
And he replied, "that's easy. Just go without the shoes and undergarments and I'll make your viel. "
"But you'll be my GOREGOUS bride."

I need something I can dance in... and by dance, I mean, advanced level ballroom dancing (think So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing with the Stars...)... and I want something that will look amazing in the TTD pictures...
But... I'm also undergoing weight loss surgery in the next few weeks... and I have NO IDEA what my body will look like.
I know I want the sweatheart neckline and that's all I've got right now.
