    Has anyone ran into this problem? My FI wants to see my wedding dress BEFORE the wedding! Why? He says he hates surprises, but I told him its bad luck! I may have to keep it at my parents house and have them bring it down!! Why does he want to see it so bad?

      Tell him TOO BAD!!!! I don't believe in the "good luck" thing but this is one of the few actual surprises in life that he's just going to have to deal with! Tell him that it means a lot to you to wait until your wedding day because the very thought of him seeing you in your dress for the first time will make it all worth it. Tell him that it's the outfit that you'll be wearing on the first day of the rest of your lives together and that he's just going to have to be patient. I think you would be better off keeping it somewhere else so he doesn't snoop!!!

        Haha, I had the opposite problem. I wanted to show my FI my dress to get his opinion, but he doesn't want to see it before the wedding.

        I don't personally think it's bad luck, plus you can take some before wedding pictures if he's already seen you. It's really up to you guys. If he feels strongly about it, ask him why. If you feel strongly, tell him why. Talk it out and see if you can find a solution.

          My FI wants to see mine also. I think he just wants his two cents thrown in when making my final pick. He's been looking at them with me....but I refuse to let him see me in any. I'm gonna have to go try on dresses and not tell him....blah....I hate fibbing to the man I'm gonna marry. Butit must be done or he will want to go with me.

            MY FI wants to see my dress also. He wanted to see the pics from when I went to try it on. But I told him no. It's not because I think it is bad luck but I said I want him to see me for the first time in it on our wedding day all done up with my hair and makeup and for me to take his breath away. I feel it's not the same to just see a picture of the dress or the dress on hanger.

              P.S.- The dress is being kept at my Mom's house to stop any urges to peek!

                Yup, I often want to show him my dress too, and I have to fight the urge! And, like others have already said, it's not at ALL about the superstition; I just want him to see it for the first time on the day we are getting married, because it is going to make it just so special. I can't wait to see "the look" when he first sees me!!!

                  My DH wanted to see my dress for awhile and when he realized that I wasn't going to give in, he wanted to see our daughters dress. The only problem with that is her dress matched mine, so he didn't get to see it either. Both dresses stayed at my Mom's and when my Mom made my TTD dress, I did want to show him that one, since I wasn't going to be walking down the aisle in it. By the time my TTD dress was done, he was over seeing the dresses and he didn't even want to see the TTD dress until I was wearing it!

                    My FI wants to wait till our wedding but it's been killing both of us not being able to talk about what it looks like. It's such a big idea and we're so used to running outfits by each other and getting the other persons opinion. I think he'll like it but I totally agree about it being very different when you're all done up on THE day!

                      I'm glad I'm not the only one here! I to want to show my FI my dress sooo badly and he refuses to look at it. I don't know if I agree with the bad luck thing but I think it will be more special for him to see it for the first time when I am walking towards him. I guess I am a little nervous that he won't like it
