Groom's Attire: Should I tell him what my dress looks like?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm hoping for some advice on my Fiance's wedding day attire. Originally I thought I would get a simple dress, probably short and so my fiance was just going to wear nice shorts and a nice shirt. But when I went shopping for my dress, I bought a more formal style dress that is long and elegant. Now I don't know what my guy should wear? I don't want him to look out place, but I also want him to be comfy! Plus he's a large teddy bear, so his size limits some of his options.

 

And I don't know how to talk to him about it without giving away too many details about my dress!! Have any of you told your partner the style of your dress or is it top secret?

 

Thanks for the help!!!!

I dont think you need to tell him what your dress looks like at all! I would just say you got a wedding dress and you think it would look best if he wore pants instead of shorts. If he starts asking questions just say you want to match and since he doenst know what your dress looks like, he should just trust you.

I think you can tell him the style of the dress without giving too much away, and most importantly, without ruining the suprise! For example, just telling him that you got a longer, more formal dress than you thought you would be getting would probably be enough information so that you guys could talk about his outfit, and he still would have no idea what your dress looks like. Most wedding dresses, after all, are long and formal! wink.gif

 

My fiance knows that I have a ballgown silhouette, that it is a big/heavy dress, and that it is strapless. He's gone from there with his outfit and with the groomsmen's attire.

 

Good luck! :)

My FI kind of knows what it looks like but has not see any real pics of it or even me in any sort of wedding dress. If you think its ok to share some details do it if not just make him the suggestion of wearing something more formal :) Good luck!

    • 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.
