Wedding Blogger Battle Royale: Round 3

Ian & Anne are back for another round of our wedding blogger battle royale. Today, they banter about the wedding dress shopping experience and whether the groom should be involved in it.

Round 3 – Should you go wedding dress shopping with your fiancée?

Anne: No.  I am a firm believer in leaving the wedding dress as a surprise on the wedding day. It’s a very special moment when the bride and groom see each other for the first time — and makes a great photo op too!

From my experience you can only get him to go to so many wedding-related appointments, wouldn’t you rather have him join you at the baker, caterer, band, photographer, videographer or venue?

Ian: I would rather beerbong battery acid.  But other guys?  They should definitely go.

Do you think the groom should accompany the bride on any gown shopping trips? Have your say in the comment section below.

    Keep it as a surprise. I don’t want my groom to find out what I will wear on our big day!
