What's the most fun part of wedding planning? Trying on wedding dresses of course! Getting lost in a sea of lace and tulle, playing an adult-approved version of dress-up, and finding the gorgeous gown of your dreams... And what's the most fun part of a regular friday? Trying on wedding dresses and sending the photos to your boyfriend, of course — yup, not fiancé, boyfriend. Umm, what?! Well, that was the case for the lovely ladies at, who spent the day trying on a closet full of beautiful wedding dresses — and then terrifying their significant others with the photos!

It's one of the biggest marriage myths that men are dragging their feet to the altar, while women have their wedding dress picked out since the age of four. While of course that's hardly true, it sure is a fun cliche to play with! A few of the non-engaged women of Cosmopolitan texted pics of themselves all set to walk down the aisle to their boyfriends. And gave some of them mini heart attacks in the process. Brilliant, ladies, simply brilliant.

First up was Jada, who has been dating her sweetheart Will for almost two years. When she first texted Will the snap of herself rocking a whimsical tulle confection, he at first seemed to like the look — mainly because he had no idea that the gorgeous gown was actually a wedding dress. "Seems bulky to wear," he pointed out, because apparently he was envisioning his girlfriend wearing the frock around the office and to brunch with the girls. But once Jada clarified that it was actually a wedding dress, he suddenly had to mysteriously go. "Have to scarf down lunch and go into long meetings. TTYL?" he wrote.

Next up was Julia who has been dating her boyfriend Brian for a year and a half. Brian got straight to the point. "Wait what?" he wrote when Julia sent him the photo of herself wearing a V-neck tulle ball gown. "I was going to keep texting him, but he called me before I had the chance and I had to explain that it was all a joke," explained Julia. Poor guy...

And last but not least, there was Brooke, whose boyfriend Eric sounds like quite the keeper.
