Dress shopping - did FI go?

Did anyone take their FI shopping with them? Just curious.


Personally, the time I went to DB, FI came. My one BM walked in the door crying because she felt we "ruined" the experience. We told her it would only be that one time just to get an idea of style likes and dislikes. I personally would love for him to come everytime! I value his opinion and quite frankly, other than myself, I only care if he loves my dress.


Just wondering if other PW girls took their FI.

I wanted him to go...but football was on lol...then it was golf...then baseball. So I went alone lol. FI is sooo freaking picky that I was worried he would see me in my dress and critic it, but I got ever it.

Mine went when I picked mine out. He hasn't seen it on me or fitted though. I wanted a valued opinion.

My plan was to have him go, see, give opinions but then not tell him which one I actually choose and leave it as a surprise for the wedding day. He does want to be surprised in that way.

I did the picture test with my FI. I showed him pictures of the gowns I was considering and asked his opinion. Thankfully he liked the one I got.

He didn't, but I did show him the DB catalog for his opinion on which he liked before and after.

Mine didn't go. I know he wanted to be surprised and I knew he would really hate standing/sitting around while I try on gown after gown after gown. He hates shopping anyway. While I really value DH's opinion, when it comes to clothing, my brother is the only honest one I take with me. He'll be completely honest if a gown made my butt look big. Or if a gown gave me linebacker shoulders. ;-)


In the months leading up to the wedding I kept hinting that my gown had lots of beading and sequins, ruffles and puffy sleeves. DH knew I was kidding, but I know I had him thinking about it... "what if it DOES have puffy sleeves?"

Nope, I wanted it to be a surprise!  But, I know what we all mean about wanting their opinion, etc. b/c I hope he thinks I look beautiful and loves it.  My mom asked what he likes and he just told us strapless to show my boobies and not toooo poofy haha  Long story short, I told him what me dress looks like haha BUT completely lied :) 


Less then 7 weeks.... we'll see haha


- HMM :)
