@zen bride: Is it the exact same dress or just aa similar dress?

I’m sure it’ll be fine.

You didn’t see her dress and then go try and copy her, you both just had similar taste in dresses.

Everything else will be different about the wedding so I wouldn’t worry.

If she says anything about bit, I’d just say something along the lines of “I guess that’s why we are such good friends, we have the same amazing taste in dresses!”

If she’s the type to get upset about something like that, maybe give her a heads up that your dress is similar.

Do you have pictures of the 2 dresses?  I’m sure its less similiar than you think, and most people won’t notice.  If you want to give her a heads up though, just be honest and be like WOW… we had pretty similiar dresses.  Lucky for you, your wedding was first 🙂

I guess it really depends on how sensitive your friend would be about it. Obviously with it being that close, you couldn’t have copied her unless you went out and bough a sample dress right after her wedding. I personally don’t think you should have to run out and buy a new dress just because yours is similar to hers. I would say “I doubt it will be a problem.” But then again, I don’t know your friend and some people can be overly-sensitive about things like that. But if you feel it would be out of character for her to blow up about it, I wouldn’t worry about it.

Don’t worry so much! Talk to her about it – I’m sure she won’t mind at all. If she puts up a fuss then screw her! Like you said – it wasn’t intentional.

Chances are – now that her wedding is done – she won’t care about that kind of stuff so much!

@zen bride: If she doesn’t “approve” of you wearing it because it’s too similar to hers how good of a friend is she really?

I’d just want my friend to be happy and feel comfortable and beautiful on her day, even if her dress looked the same as mine.

If she might be sensitive, give her a heads up otherwise it should be fine.

Could you mix it up a little to give your dress a different look.  Such as a sash, bolero, broach.  Something just to give it a bit of a different dimension.
