So I went a few weekends ago to go wedding dress shopping…. and I fell in LOVE with a dress. Later I realized it was the SAME exact dress as a girl whose wedding I just attended a few weeks prior.
I tried to get this dress out of my head and find a different one, but I just kept thinking about this one dress….I made the HUGE mistake of putting it on again. Everyone loved it my mom and sister both cried when I told them this was the dress….. but then I told them it was the same dress as a girl who would most likely be at my wedding. Also my finace already saw this dress on this other girl…..
But I loved it so much I convinced myself to buy it….now I am worried I made the wrong choice…What if my fiance realizes it is the same dress? Will it not be as special then when he sees me? What if she realizes its the same dress? Granted we are getting married a year after her wedding…but its literally the day before their 1 year anniversary. Am I a huge copy cat? HELP?!?!?!

Lol, kind of…
But really, it’ll look different on you, your Fiance isn’t going to be able to tell unless he’s a fashionisto…and if she’s invited, she’ll probably notice, but who cares?

@marie2006: Take a deep breath and then go rock that gown! Who cares if it is the same because TONS of people fall in love with the same dress, thats how designers make money! I am sure she will take it as a compliment and that you Fiance won’t recognize it (come on he ia a guy!). However, if he does recognize it then I am sure he will be proud that his girl is wearing it better 🙂
You found the dress and it is entirely yours! Differen’t body, different story, different wedding

@marie2006: Don’t worry about it! Your Fiance won’t notice, I guarantee it. The other girl might, but if she’s a good friend then she won’t care!

I would feel the same, BUT you say you love the dress so just keep it. It’s not like it was the only one made especially for the other lady.

What is the gown? Maybe bees can suggest something very similar but different?

I doubt your Fiance will notice. They are all just long white dresses to the guys anyway
If you feel beautiful in it, you will look gorgeous. That is all that matters. If that dress is the one, you will just have to wear it (and rock it)
Everydress looks different on different people.

Honestly I doubt anyone will notice, especially since the weddings are so far apart. Unless you’re copying a custom gown, no one really “owns” the dress design.

@marie2006: I don’t think you need to be worried, because like other people have said, the same dress can look very different on different people, but maybe you can change a few details eg. wear a different sash, use different accessories etc
