Bringing fiannce dress shopping...yay or nay?

Recommended Posts

I also say nay....to me there is just something about seeing my fiances reaction when he first sees me in my dress, and i didnt want it to be at a dress shop!

I agree with everyone else. All of my girlfriend's took their FI's shopping for the wedding dress and all had at home traditional weddings. None of the men remembered the dresses come wedding day so it was just like seeing it for the first time. In fact one of the grooms was positive it was a different dress, it really wasn't his wife, my friend just was done up on wedding day whereas the day she tried on dresses she was just regular. I am the only one having a non-traditional wedding (DW) but not letting FI see till day of.....I want this part to remain traditional and so did he. Do what works best for you and your FI.

I would say "nay" now too.  When I first started shopping online, I showed him some pictures but then I saw another dress later.  I then asked my friends to vote on which one they liked best and the one chosen was the one that he had not seen.  I sent the picture to his sister  and she told him, "no way", you are not seeing it".

I definetly think that it is your decision but, I feel like the look on your fiance's face when he sees you walking down the aisle for the first time is priceless and irreplaceable.  This is the one moment in your relationship when you can completely surprise him and it will be a look that you will remember for a lifetime.

I say go for it! I would have loved FI to come dress shopping with me, as it is he didn´t want to, but even if he goes with you just to get an idea of what you both like i think it´s a great idea. Your relationships all about sharing right? so why not share this too? it´s probably the most important dress you´ll ever buy!

If you feel it is right, and he wants to go, then do it!

 

My fiance would be bored to tears if I brought him along.... although I did quickly show him a picture of a potential dress and he lit up when he saw it... then did the classic "It doesn't matter what you are wearing, I know you will look beautiful and trust your pick" Phewph!

I like what you said. That is so true! It is such a special moment!

Did you ask him what he wanted to do? Curious if he said he wanted to see it or not. My fiance is adamant he doesn't see the dress before the wedding. It's been in a bag in the closet for months now and he still hasn't taken a peek. I'd be way too curious not to look!! Then again, the whole wedding will be a pretty big surprise for him since I've done most of the planning. It'll be like he's one of the guests hahaha

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
