My fiance doesn't like the dress I picked!

I put a partial deposit on a dress I love (not a full deposit so they haven't ordered it yet as I didn't want it to come in sooooo early).  I was looking through a bridal magazine last night sort of getting ideas for bridesmaids dresses and he started commenting on the wedding gowns.  He has no idea that I found a dress or anything.  I ran across a picture of the dress I picked and he said "that one looks old fashioned, I don't like it".   When I asked him what he meant my "old Fashioned"  he couldn't be more specific just that he didn't like it.  I'm sad, I love the dress but his opinion is important to me...... so I pick something else?   Here is a couple pics of the dress, not the best shots admittedly (taken by my 12 year old)  I think he wants to see me in something a little sexier.....

 You look amazing!! When your day arrives and he sees you walking down the aisle there is no way he'll think that you look old fashioned.

Ohh I agree with Canooknic, I don't think that looks old fashioned at all, you look stunning! 

That said, I feel your apprehension. You have a few options, you can show DH pictures of you in the dress. Not sure how you feel about showing him before the big day though, but you would know one way or the other if he likes it or not.

You could stick with this dress and I bet that he won't even remember saying that, or even think it's the same dress. Most of the time the dress looks so different on everyone and the model looks nothing like real life! I think it's got a nice sexy sweetheart cut and a dropped back. If I asked my Gram if that was old fashioned I think she would faint!

Or, you can shop for a new dress (which is always fun)! But risk losing your deposit, the good news is that it's not the full cost of the dress.

 

GOOD LUCK!

 You look breathtaking!!!

 

This happened with my husband and I once and although he didn't see my dress, he commented on a similar dress not liking the "upside down v".  It stuck with me but when the day came and passed, my husband couldn't get over how beautiful I looked and how much he loved my dress.  I mentioned his comment, and he did not even remember saying it.

 Ditto the other ladies!! Nicole gave the options you have, but you look amazing in that dress!! Go with your gut-if that's the dress for you, he will think you look gorgeous in your special day and prob won't remember his comment or the dress in the magazine for that matter! I'm sorry for that hiccup, I'm sure it's not easy to hear that from him! But you really look amazing!

 I agree with everyone! He is going to have so many emotions that he is going to think you look stunning once he sees you walk down the aisle. Go with your gut, if this dress talks to you and says keep me....keep her! You already look great in it, imagine once your hair is done the way you want it and your make up is done...fabulous!!

My FI said that it is hard for men to visualise something. If he sees a dress on a picture, he has no idea how you will look in it. He surely will be stunned  by your beauty on the big day. And he will have no idea that it is the dress he once called "old fashioned".

 He'll seriously have a change of heart when he sees YOU in it! He probably won't even realize that it's the same dress! You look beautiful!

Thanks ladies!  I'm going on Thursday to try it on again and try a couple other dresses just to be sure.  Since they haven't ordered it yet, they said if I change my mind the money I have paid so far can go toward another dress :)  I just want to be really sure this is the one!  :)

I think the dress is STUNNING and especially you!! Once he sees you in it on yalls big day, he won't even notice that was the same dress he didn't like! 


BEAUTIFUL!

Oh my gosh you look AWESOME!!! That dress fits you like a glove, imagine how great it will be in one made for you! Honestly, I would put money on your FI not remembering he even made that comment, let alone knowing that dress is the same one he saw in a magazine...most men just don't think that way :) 

And ditto the others, it will look way different on you than on a model...so if this is THE ONE for you and you love it, go for it!!
