Woe is me. I’m to marry in July next year, and had decided on champagne/taupe coloured dresses for my bridesmaids, and pastel coloured flowers… only to discover my future brother-in-law’s fiancee had picked the exact same colours, and they’re marrying less than six months before us!
Do you think I should stick with my colours as they’re the ones I’d envisioned for my wedding? If not, what do you think of grey bridesmaids dresses (as linked below), with pastel/white flowers?

Don’t take this the wrong way, but I doubt any of your guests will notice. Stick to what you envisioned, all anybody will be thinking on the day is how beautiful everything is.

I would change it up a bit but not completely. But that is just me. I wouldn’t do the EXACT same colors. But still keep my vision. 🙂

Nobody will notice or care really. As brides we can’t really lay claim a color, so in the greater scheme of things this is so inconsequential. Keep with your plans.

I would keep your colors and not worry at all about what your Future Brother-In-Law and his Fiance are doing. People honestly will NOT remember. Your colors sound lovely!

There are so many different ways to even do the same color. Unless youre picking the same dress, with the exact same flowers, at the same location, I’d just keep on doing whatever it was that you wanted.

Don’t worry about it! You should stick to your colors. My cousin and his Fiance have EXACTLY the same color scheme as me, are getting married 5 months after us and we have 80% the same people invited.
At first I was bummed, but transitioned into a “Who the F&^& cares”type attitude.Most people wont even notice.
I would warn you not to share wedding details (flowers, bridesmaid, dresses, invite etc.) because you might have better taste than her and she’ll want to use all your stuff.
We both get to marry the love of our lives the rest is just icing

I don’t see a HUGE problem with sharing colors, but I agree that you might want to go with at least slightly different color (and style) Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. The pastels are still fine, though if she picks a color to focus on then pick a different one…just so you don’t look like the crazy copy-cat bride (to her, the other guests won’t notice.)

Honestly, your wedding pictures are going to be of your wedding, not comparing yours to your Future Brother-In-Law and his wife’s. Do what makes YOU happy, because you’ll be stuck with those memories and they should be what you want. I agree that not many would notice or care, and there are many ways to do the same colors in different ways.

I think you can do SO many things with the colors you have chosen! Pick different flowers, dresses, material etc. There’s no way it’ll come out just the same. Plus, look at it this way, you can use their wedding to get some inspiration and to decide how to make yours different (or better, if you want lol) from theirs!

I wouldn’t worry about it at all. A month before my wedding, the hubby and I went to his cousin’s wedding and I went “oh, hmm, soooo she did purple too” and never really gave it another though and no one else in the family seemed to notice that there were two weddings just one month apart that were both purple. Honestly, with the large mix of dress styles for bridesmaids, bouquet options, accessories and such, the same color can still have a very different look.
