    Well I need to start dress shopping but I am a little concerned after watching a wedding show with my FI the other day he made a comment about not liking "V-neck" dresses...one of the dresses I love is a "V-neck" Should I just go with what I like on me or lean towards something I know he would like. Anyone else run into this?

      You have to go with what looks best on you. Your FI might not have liked the look because maybe the model wasnt you lol! Ultimately i think its great to take FI's likes an dislikes into consideration but you have to feel comfortable and beautiful on your day.

        Before I started shopping I had asked FI if there was anything he really did not want to see in my dress or something he was hoping he'd see. He was partial to a cap sleeve on the dress. Unfortunately for him, I did not find any dresses with sleeves like that that I liked. I went with my gut and found a dress that made me feel like a bride. :)
        Go with what makes you feel beautiful because he'll see your beauty shining through no matter what shape neckline your dress has!

            OHHH BOY! My FI is soooo picky and I made the mistake of asking him about some dresses that I liked and he HATED them! I didn't know what to do!! I panicked and started freaking out when it came time to shop! But I agree with what the girls said, find something that looks fabulous on you, he will like it! If he really hates like for example, pick-ups on a skirt or big poofy flowers maybe try and stay away from something like that but if its just the sleeves or cut of a dress or a certain material then I wouldn't worry. Then again it is your dress, do you care what he thinks? I do to a degree so I am staying away from certain things, but I am confident he will think I am beautiful no matter what.

            Go shop!

              I agree. Pick what you feel good in. Your FI will think you're beautiful no matter what. He will be looking more at your beautiful face and smile than the dress.

                you know how we've all seen that girl in a store or a bar and all the guys gravitate towards her and we might think "what do they see?" it's b/c she feels amazing in what she's wearing....go with an open mind to strapless, and try on some v-necks; and if you feel amazing, you'll look amazing!!!

                    Definitely choose what you love the most. If you're comfortable in it, it will show and make you look even more beautiful.

                      Thanks everyone. I want my FI to love how I look that day but honestly I don't know how much he will care about the "outfit" but I started to stress a bit. Thanks for making me feel better!
