    If its a colour you really want to have and there is no other contenders I’d say go for it.

    So, sorry – is it the same dress or just the same colour? If it’s the same dress and colour, I would be a little worried that she would consider you a copycat. I mean, personally I wouldn’t care so much, rather just raise my eyebrows a little… because there’s so much to choose from!

    However, if it’s just the same model, or even better, just the same colour, I would go ahead without worrying about it any further.

    I love my SIL but were naturally competitive so no. Definitely not.

    I’m of the opinion that this only matters if your wedding is before hers, because then she’s not the first person to use “her color”. But if you’re after, it’s more an “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” thing. The worst that can happen is it will remind a few people of her wedding, which can’t be a bad thing from her point of view.

    And if your indicated wedding date is correct (June 2015), that is 2 years away and it’s absolutely no problem.

    She doesn’t own navy blue, and you’re getting married about 2 years after her! No one will care or notice. Anyone that does really needs to find something better to do with their time.

    Very “who cares” to me. My Future Sister-In-Law joked that we “stole” her colors (she’s younger and probably not marrying super soon) and I was thinking “use them, it don’matta.”

    @Stranger516:  I’ll add, though, that it’s still polite to let her know.

    No one owns a color scheme. If you like it, and she likes it, who cares?

    Especially since you will probably have different accents (flowers, accesories, etc), I don’t think it matters. But if you are really concerned about it, go ahead and talk to her about it.

    I don’t think it matters.

    If I had to avoid using my favorite color simply because someone else decided to use it before me, I would be crushed.

    I don’t think it’s strange using the same “hot” or “in” color as someone else.

    I dont even think guests remember the colors much, its more of a bride thing.

    If you feel uncomfortable just ask her but i bet she won’t have an issue with it. If it was the same dress and same colour maybe different story but I think you’re pretty fine!
