FI has an opinion for a change....
Posted 14 August 2009 - 03:24 PM
Not really sure what I want, but was thinking something simple, light, and elegant.
While going through bridal magazines last week, my FI was pointing out some very elaborate and beautiful dresses. He hasn't really had too much of an opinion about anything in the planning process, so I was shocked when he had such a candid response to my dress choices and would point out the most gorgeous dresses.
So now I'm confused...do I want a "princess" dress, especially if that's what he's expecting? I was trying to keep it simple, but who doesn't want to be princess for their wedding day?!
Did anyone else's FI's have a strong idea of their dresses? And much did you really consider it...lol?!
Also for past cruise brides... Did you change, or wear the dress all day?
Suggestions and opinons, greatly appreciated!!

I just started to pay attention to the styles of dresses he would point out in Magazines and like you i was rather impressed with his taste (thankfully!). He was keen on the simple, non-embellished, no lace, no beading style of dresses which is what i liked anyway. I thought i wanted something simple and less formal but when i started to try on more dressy, dresses i just got carried away!
We've not had our wedding yet so obviously i have no idea if he likes my dress! (fingers crossed!)
But i say when your trying on dresses just go with your gut instinct! If it feels like "the one" then go for it. If it's simple great...if it's princess...great!! But definitely try both types on. Your fiance is going to be blown away with how you look regardless of what your wearing!
Have fun and post piccy's when you find it!

that said, it is a nice thing when the groom has an opinion about something.

Or perhaps you could find something that is a "happy medium"? Get a modified a-line, or a fit and flare, that is more sleek and narrow at the top, but still more full and dramatic from the mid thigh down? If a marriage is all about compromise, then for you it might be starting with the dress of your dreams, as well as your fiance's!
