The wonderful and terrible thing about wedding dresses is that they’re only unique to us. To everyone else, it’s a long white dress that looks pretty much the same as all the other long, white dresses. (Even if it’s ivory, or champagne, or whatever.) By all means, love the details of your dress, but don’t let the fact that someone else has the same one ruin it for you. There are other brides out there with the same one – and lots of other brides out there with virtually the same one. As far as the rest of the world is concerned, all the strapless ball gowns are “the same dress” regardless of the beading or the flowers or whatever. All the mermaid/fit and flare/trumpet gowns are “the same dress” regardless of the precise shape of the skirt.

So enjoy your dress because you love its details, and be glad that someone else shares your excellent taste in fashion! If you feel like you need to make it more unique/make it “yours” you can always think of adding a belt or some other detail, having a unique veil, etc. if that makes you feel better about it.

Doll, you look great in your dress!!  Don’t let this get to you..

If i had a dime for every time I saw a bride (some of which I know personally) who wore Maggie Sottero’s “Adorae” dress, I’d have crazy deep pockets..!  And yet, I still chose to try the Adorae on just because it’s so gorgeous..!  Turns out, I ended up picking a similar-looking dress that I liked better.  

All that matters is how you feel in it.. Just know that you’d probably make the dress look SO much better than all the previous brides in it anyway..!  That’s all that matters to me, at least.  Gosh, I’m so vain.

I KNOW its bothering you know, but consider the cost and headache that would come along with finding a new dress having it altered with less than 2 months until your date. Like PP mentioned, our dresses are only unique to us so there is a really good chance your friend and BM didn’t remember or even notice that it was the same dress. I’m sure your family and other wedding guest wouldn’t notice/care either.

It would defintely make me feel some type of why, but when you compare it all… it doesn’t matter. Think if it this way, I’m sure there are dozens of other brides who share your dress. Just think of your friend as another dress twin.

I think that dress looks amazing on you! I know I would be a little upset in your situation but dresses look so different depending on who wears them before even getting to details like accessories. No one will notice because how and what you wear it with will make it unique.

You look gorgeous in it! Rock it girl! The fact is, hardly anyone will notice, and as long as you feel beautiful in it, you will be just fine!
