I bought the same dress and had no idea.

@Jazzyjazz33:  First of all, I totally understand your being worried about it because I overthink things and would be semi-embarrassed too… but honestly, it’s a popular dress from a popular designer and it’s totally plausible that this happening is a complete accident .I would facebook her and say “omg guess what? i bought my wedding dress the other day after trying a whole bunch on- I didn’t even know the name! And then I realized it’s the same one you wore! Except I’m going to wear it with (enter different accessory here). How funny is that? I guess we have the same taste!”

Lighthearted, no big deal. You didn’t do anything wrong and I would only think it’s a “big deal” if you had ALL the same friends or if you were getting married in the same couple months.

I looked up the dress- so pretty!

I’m sure she will notice no matter what because you don’t forget your own wedding dress, but I don’t think anyone else will take notice to it, so I wouldn’t worry about bringing it up to anyone else. I definitely can’t remember every detail of someone’s dress whose wedding I went to three years ago because I don’t really care enough to remember it TBH. If she says anything I would just be like, “I thought they were similar, but didn’t realize until after I bought it!” Honestly, I’d be happy if my wedding dress were still in style a few years later! 🙂

@Jazzyjazz33:  i wouldn’t be too concerned about buying the same dress.  the only person that will notice will be the friend that wore it 3 years ago and the dress will look totally different on both of you.  besides, imitation is the best form of flattery.

Popular dresses are popular for a reason. When I was looking for dresses, the consultants kept trying to put me in a dress that a friend wore for her wedding-that same summer, and I was MOH. I wouldn’t try it on because obviously I knew the dress and she’s a BM in my wedding. But none-the-less, popular styles get worn a lot-it’s nbd and I wouldn’t mention it.

You could always wait until she, or someone else, says something, if they do…and then be like “omg are you serious?  That’s so funny! I had no idea!”

@Jazzyjazz33:  I was worried you had bought the same dress as a close friend or relative who’s  wedding was coming up.  I feel that 1) if someone’s wedding has already happened and 2) the dress isn’t custom and you’re actively copying it then they won’t care.  If anything it is confirmation that she had a cute dress that is still stylish.
