We haven’t given anyone permission to use the Weddingbee icons!

I found the app through Google:

But didn’t see the Green Tea or Coconut icons… could you take a screenshot and send them to us at help at weddingbee dot come?

Thanks!!

Wow, they totally copied Mrs. Green Tea’s icon!  There is also one that looks very similar to Mrs. Dew Drop’s icon.

Yes, the similarities to those icons are striking!

wow, that’s definitely green tea’s icon – they call it “chai tea” in the app – and yeah, a few (coconut, dew drop, etc) seem to have pieces stolen or parts that are very similar. Sorry, I don’t know how to take screen shots or else I’d be posting one right now.

I just checked with Mrs. Bee, and about 10 or so of our icons are from iStockPhoto… Green Tea and Coconut’s icons are on that list!  So those aren’t copyright infringements – we’re just both licensing them from the same source. 🙂

Dew Drop is an original Weddingbee icon though… does anyone have a screenshot of the Facebook app’s dew drop?

The idea of envy heart & Dew Drop are similar, but IMO they really look nothing alike.

Ah ok… yah those are pretty different.  I see what you mean about conceptual similarities tho – I guess there aren’t that many ways to draw a dew drop!

Gummi Bear’s is pretty similar to theirs also:

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery… 🙂
