    I don't want him to see my dress until the big day!! I wouldn't worry that your FI saw your dress though...he hasn't seen it on you and that's what matters!

      DH has seen my dress, on the rack IN the store the day I bought it! I know I know, but we're footing the bill entirely for this- rather I should say he is, since I'm finishing med school. But he has a TERRIBLE memory for things like this, and if you asked him today what the dress he saw 8 months ago looked like, he wouldn't have a clue. By the wedding? He's not going to remember.

      I will make sure when we leave for the trip that he doesn't see it and won't see it until right before the ceremony. I do want to see his face when he sees me in it all gussied up, etc. But I don't care about seeing it on a hanger in a store.

        He has seen my dress. I am wearing my mothers wedding dress, so he has seen the pictures of my mom in it and he is the one that found it in the basement. I didnt have the alterations done yet so he doesnt know what he it will exactly look like, but has the general idea.

          I don't know if it is harder for me or for him to not show FI my dress! I share everything with him, especially if I am excited, so having a dress I can't show him makes me want to even more! HAHA. 2 months of not showing him down, only 16 more to go. Shouldn't have bought it so early! We both still live with our parents (he is about to graduate college though, so in the next few months we'll get a place) and it is in my mom's closet because 1. mine has no room to hang anything longer than a tshirt and 2. they know I'd cave and show him!

          FI says he wants to see it but he also wants it to be a big deal that day. He was in our house without any of us home recently and he called and told on himself to me so he wouldn't look... says "I could go look at your dress if I wanted to and you'd never know." I don't care if he sees it on the hanger though, I'm with y'all... it's not nearly the same as on me! I did give him a detailed description of it tho. He's a guy, he doesn't get it!

              My dress is a surprise for him. Although I did catch him looking at dresses online. He said he wanted to get an idea how much they cost. Hmmm?

                i've shown him pictures of the dress. he's not going to see the real impact until that day

                i view the wedding dress much like our engagement ring. he asked me to participate to make sure i loved the ring; i'd like him to participate to some extent in the dress to make sure that when i'm walking toward him on the big day he's as blown away by me in this dress as i was when i finally got the see the ring on my finger!

                  Mike knows what dress I am getting (he's seen it in the magazine I carried around for MONTHS before deciding, haha) but he hasn't gotten to see it in person or on me. So I think thats what matters.

                    Dan saw my dress in a magazine, but I refuse to let him see me in it. The only reason I showed him the magazine was because he pitched such a big fit! He keeps asking me to try the dress on for him, but I refuse.

                      My FI has seen it in a pic, but not on me! He will not see it on me until my wedding day. This is not the first marriage for either of us and we are not following all of the traditional routes.
