    No offense, but I think you need to chill out! Obviously, she REALLY liked yours, so she took the same design, and adapted it to make her own. At least you know she has good taste!

    I would not care at all.  It’s a compliment that she loved yours so much.
    I guess I could see being a little annoyed (not pissed) if a friend did that…but honestly…it’s just stationary.

    Hang on a minute, have you already sent yours out? Or will the same guests be getting hers before yours?

    I’d be pissed, but everyone that knows you both got yours first and knows she copied you.  So I wouldn’t say anything, because she knows what she did and so does everyone else.  And it’s flattering.  But I definitely wouldn’t give her any more tutorials on your wedding stuff, just in case she recreates your wedding!

    Yes for me that would be upsetting, and I would talk to her about it.

    I would try and take it as a complement. I am sure she didn’t mean to make you upset.

    I dont blame you for being upset. If I devoted that much time and energy into something only to have it ripped off, I would be pretty peeved too. However, what’s done is done so is it really worth making a big deal? You know what they say, immitation is the highest form of flattery!

    I don’t know if angry is the right word, but I would be… annoyed? Especially if I spent a lot of time trying to come up with something unique and original. It isn’t the end of the world though, I would probably mention it but try not to make too big of a deal.

    I would be pissed and I know exactly how you feel. I had a girl copy basically my whole wedding– my FH and I learned too late that we should keep our mouths shut.

    ETA: I didn’t talk to her about it because it was too late, you know? It was already done.

    If you haven’t sent your out yet, I’d be pretty upset that she copied you and send them out first… otherwise, take it as a compliment and let it go.

    Honestly I would be flattered that she liked my work so much. I would probably be shocked when I first opened the envelope but I’d get over it. I wouldn’t say anything and just take it as a compliment.

    I’d be a bit weirded out. But you won’t gain anything by talking to her – it’s not like she doesn’t know what happened.

    although annoying for you im sure you have to remember that where you live, breathe, think and sleep weddings 24/7 most guests do not so the majority of people wont notice – especially as your invites are blue and hers are red

     

    I’m now afraid to have her attend my wedding in fear of her copying everything else

    are you serious?   and if she does copy???  your wedding was first so why would it matter
