Your post is really confusing….

So you are mad that she wants to use the same type of flowers you had?  Orchids and peonies are extremely popular in weddings, and I hate to tell you but you aren’t the first one to use them.  I imagine you probably got lots of ideas from other weddings you saw.  And also, many people do like to remember people who aren’t able to attend their weddings – you aren’t the first to do that either.  Are her colors the same as yours?  And what are the guys wearing?  You can’t let these kind of things bother you!  There are a million people out there who probably had the same wedding as you.  In reality, it just doesn’t matter.  And if they didn’t go to your wedding, they probably didn’t try to copy you.  None of the guests will even notice the similarities.  Just be happy for them!

Woah.

 

"They want to use Orchids…but can I say they don’t even deserve to use Orchids? They don’t even hold the belief of what Orchids mean! "

 

Wow.

Oh honey!  Obviously you’re really upset about this… take a deeeep breath… I have been to a lot of weddings, and at every wedding there were superficial similarities.  But ONLY superficial!  People do not attend weddings just to look at "stuff."  People attend weddings to celebrate with the bride and groom.  Your personalities, your flair, your talents and traditions are what make all the difference.  So yes, it is frustrating when you feel like you’ve put a ton of effort into something so important only to feel like you’re being copied… but YOU can never be replicated!  And no one’s experience of your wedding will be anything like the experience they have at your cousin’s, even if all of the "stuff" is the same down to the very last petal.

Whoa.

Someone get this girl a margarita and stat.

I think there has to be something deeper than just someone using a few of the same elements.  Your wedding already happened.  People will remember your wedding- is that what you are worried about.  

A lot of the elements you are describing are frequently used.  Orchids are SUper Duper common and Peonies are in season and enjoying a lot of popularity.  

I don’t know why you are so upset but try to let it go, be happy for your family and take pride in that your wedding was so lovely that someone may be borrowing a few of your ideas.

I mean really "Immitation is the sincerest form of flattery"

I think you need to take it down a quite a few notches and chill

i agree with beesknees.  this is going way beyond being just a copy cat — maybe there is a deep-seated resentment toward your DH’s family for whatever reason, which is totally your perogative.  the ENTIRE WEDDING INDUSTRY is based off copying the ideas of brides that came before you.  it’s BOUND to happen.  orchids and peonies are not original ideas for flowers…

if you’re not happy with them, just don’t offer your help.  don’t attend the wedding.  be happy that YOU had a beautiful wedding and am married to the man you love. 

because that’s what really matters, right?

Accoring to Wikipedia, the word "orchid" comes from the Greek word for testicle.

whoa is right.  and it’s not friday the 13th yet.  you need to remember that your wedding is over and i completely agree that immitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  maybe instead of being upset, you should present to this gal the inspiration behind your own wedding and tell her what everything means–orchids, peonies, etc.  you might find you have more fun helping than complaining!

hope i don’t come across snarky. . .best of luck to you!
