Did you ask your FH what type of dress he envisioned you in?

    Nope! He's not really a "style guy". My jeans and T-shirt man Smiley smile I knew he wouldn't care, he'll think I look pretty in anything. He kinda gets my style so I don't think the dress style I picked will surprise him (or anyone) at all. Funny thing is he had an opinion on my wedding makeup before he even proposed haha! I've always worn makeup especially when we're going somewhere and he likes it. I don't know why but I guess he was afraid I'd go extreme with it? I had to explain it to him, it'll be the same type/shade/amount that I would wear to someone else's wedding ... just done professionally. He was relieved haha.

    I asked FH after the fact what he pictured me in! He literally just said "something white" lol. Then, he, eventually, added that I probably got something with a lot of bling (which he's right there.... I LOVE sparkle so that was a given). I haven't told him what I'm wearing but have just been curious what he thinks I picked out. He's, also, made comments on how he doesn't like mermaid dresses, which is funny because mine is a mermaid dress. I know he'll love it on me, though!

    Absolutely. I actually look at wedding dresses with him sometimes to see his interests. Of course, I’ll have the final decision and won’t let him see until the day of the wedding. However, I do like to see his interests and what he finds as beautiful or sexy 🤣

    FH knows next to nothing about dresses, so even if I did ask, probably wouldn't have gotten a clear answer Smiley laugh

    I narrowed down 10 dresses I liked. Then had him pick from those on the internet what he liked best; top 3 and I actually ended up getting one of the dresses he picked.

    I did ask my fiancé what he would like to see me in and his only comment was, “I don’t like poofy dresses.” 😂

    Yes and no. He went with us when I tried on my first around of dresses because he never seen a woman in a white dress. I put on all these dress and he would pick apart what he liked about the dress but I wanted some classic and simple. He wanted some banggly and big. But my dress is a very good mix between what we both want and also sexy

    I haven’t started looking yet, but I don’t think I’d ask him. I want it to be a surprise which is kind of annoying bc he’s the one person I’d trust to be honest and not try to force me into what they want over what I want. I’m actually dreading the dress shopping process.

    Mine told me not to even discuss dresses with him. He wants to be totally surprised when I walk down the aisle.

    Not at all. He’s very curious and can’t wait to see me in it though.

    I never asked, but he likes to look through the bridal magazines with me. He ends up saying what he does and doesn't like about certain dresses, so I can use that input if I want. The only thing he's said directly to me is that he feels strongly about it being white.

    Haha nope. He wants to be completely surprised, plus he knows I have a very specific vision in mind for my dress.

    Heck no! I showed him styles reeeeeeally early on I liked and saw myself in. But the dress is the one thing I don't care about anyone else's input on. My wedding is simple but I loooove princess style dresses and I have set my own budget and will pay for myself. The dress is mine, everything else, I've asked for opinions and feedback and we've compromised. Plus, my fiance hasn't a clue. He wouldn't care anyways 😂🙄

    I did ask my FH for his input. He knows I’m ultimately gonna do what I want and he said knows me and wants me in the thing that he knows I want. Only thing he really was is me in a black wedding dress. I know it’s kookie but we’re not traditional I honestly want a red dress with some black.

    Yes, I did ask what kind of dresses he liked but he honeslty didn't really care. I think it's good to ask just to know and to keep in the back of your mind, but at the end of the day i think you should choose the dress you feel most beautiful in

    I did talk to my husband about this before buying my dress! I love wedding magazines, even now that I'm married. So I had looked through many before our wedding and had ideas of what I liked and what i wanted. I would occasionally show him photos and ask his pinons to gauge what he might like. I always knew I wanted a ballgown and I think he agreed that was my personality.
