FI wants to see my dress!?!?

Recommended Posts

I'm the same, i'm that used to sharing absolutely everything with h2b, that i'm finding it really hard not showing him ideas that i like, i don't know what i'm going to be like when i actually have a dress!

 

I'll be ok leaving the dress in our house though, he under no circumstances wants to see it, so thats all good.

 

i was talking the other night about our bridesmaid dresses and flowergirls dress, and he was like, you can't show me these, then i'll know the colours...i was like, erm, you are allowed to know the colours you dafty! i am now thinking he is just trying to get out of the whole planning!lmao

I told my FI the dress has some color in it and showed him the color swatch, but that is as much as he gets to know about the dress. Knowing my color might impact what he and his guys wear but other than that I want the wedding day surprise

I am so glad some people have run into the same problem as me! I have told him how i feel: special moment yadda yadda, but he doesn't care. Oh well he is just going to have to wait. As long as I don't talk about it he forgets. I am going to keep it at my moms ( she lives 2 hrs away) and then get it right before we leave. Wow - amazing how men make things so complicated! haha...thanks girls!

FI always teased that he was going to look, but never any follow through. Guys like to see us squirm. And he probably knows he cant, and its bugging him.

 

Stand your ground! He isn't going to die so he needs to relax. And tell him it is YOU inside the dress, so it isn't that big of a suprise. Just say it will be me looking my best ever. Maybe offer to meet him before the ceremony to do pictures- I know my Fi really wanted that, before everyone else saw me too.

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.
I had the same problem sappihire. I wanted to show him being though this is my second wedding. I wasn't concern about him seeing it. Then I thought about it and wanted it to be a surprise.

I showed mine a couple of pictures of my dress online. I dont care if he looks at it when it comes home with me. He's not really concerned about how it looks - that's my job.

Mine went with me to get mine so he already knows what it looks like. I don't believe in the bad luck thing. He will still be amazed when he sees me walking down the aisle. Didn't bother me one bit.

Tell him to SUCK IT! FI hasn't even asked because he knows that I'm so excited to surprise him. Just tell him how important it is to you. And why does he want to see it so bad? Does he feel like he has to approve it or something? Just because he doesn't like surprises is not a good enough excuse to me! And it's bad luck!!!

 

Sorry if I was a little harsh wink.gif

I also wanted to show my fiance my dress but he will not look at it either. The boutique I bought the dress from sent me a swatch so he could match the color but the style is going to be hard without him seeing it. I'm just planning to have more input on his outfit choices in order to make sure our outfits work together.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
