    I’d be pissed, but I don’t think there’s anything you can do.  You both have the dress now, and neither of you (presumably) wants to start shopping again.  Just try not to share any more details with your non-original copy-cat friend!

    I’m a bit confused.  You have a ceremony dress and a reception dress?  And she picked a dress like your reception dress to wear for her ceremony?  Either toss the reception dress altogether or bling it up with some accessories to make it look different from hers.  Also, unless you’re cousins, most of your guests won’t be attending her wedding so they will have no clue.

    Nothing similar has happened to me.  I would probably be a little like, “Huh…what?” if that happened, and not even mad, but just kind of confused or something.

    But if you’re doing tons of alterations, I bet it doesn’t even look similar when it’s all said and done with!  🙂

    LadyAprill:  So if it is your reception dress, then she bougth the same dress for her ceremony or also for her reception? If it’s just your reception dress who cares?

    It’ll look different on two different people, don’t worry too much about it.

    LadyAprill:  I’m guessing based on the fact she told you about it when she bought it that she didn’t think it would be a problem. Which I don’t think is a totally unreasonable assumption, given that your dress is just for the reception and you’ve already told her that you are making significant alterations to it anyway. I wouldn’t sweat it.

    LadyAprill:  Why’d you tell her to try it on in the first place?

    LadyAprill:  This would annoy me beyond belief. Why in the world would she get a dress knowing you already had it?! The saving grace here though is the fact that you’re only wearing it to your ceremony and getting some major alterations done.
