In majority of the traditions it is said that the groom should not see the bride in her wedding dress before she walks down the aisle. It shows the marriage to be lucky and of course his breath to be taken away by her one sight soon to be wife. In our Pakistani tradition we have a typical thinking that our men tend to run away from all the errands related to feminine shopping and etc. But do you really think is it true?
If we look at from the bride’s perspective she would want her man’s moral support on choosing her perfect dress. She would also want a stamp approval that he would like the dress. But let’s just accept it Ladies! He will be in awe at how beautiful you are and overjoyed that he gets to spend the rest of his life with you.
However important the dramatic reveal may seem! It is ultimately up to the bride and the groom to decide who and when the gown is seen. Whether it is traditional kept secret or the modern group trip to the bridal shop.
In the end the question still remains, how do you see it, should the groom tag along and have a say or should it be kept a surprise until that first look on the big day?
