@rumpunch712:  trust me, guys dont’ even notice the dress.  if you don’t tell your fi it’s the same dress, he won’t even know.  in that case, why would you even tell him?  even if you did, chances are he won’t remember. 

besides, all women look so different in dresses (shapes, sizes, height, etc.).

i guess that’s what you get for picking a popular dress.

  • Wedding: June 2013

There were three girls at my work who wore the same dress over a 6 month time frame. No one noticed it was the same dress because each girl wore it differently. I understand that YOU know it’s the same dress but your fiancé won’t. He’s a guy! For reference, I just asked my fiancé what my friends dress looked like who got married a week ago. His exact words “umm, it had straps right?” Actually, no it didn’t lol. 

He will love you in YOUR dress and really, he won’t know someone else wore it! He will love you in it.

Jeez, that sucks!! 

Have you actually tried on this dream dress yet?

I only ask because I spent about a year swooning over a particular dress, but when I tried it on, it didn’t wow me.  I ended up buying something completely different. 

It’s probably very highly unlikely that this next bride will also have “your” dress…and in the meantime, there’s no need to worry over it.  Your FI is going to think YOU look amazing in your dress…plus he was probably not really paying attention to the dress the other bride wore.  We’ve been to countless weddings and my FI can’t even remember the colors of the BMs…and a white dress is just another white dress on another girl…

If you were my friend/sister/daughter, I’d probably laugh at you, too. Not in a mean way, and I wouldn’t call you an idiot, but if you haven’t even bought it (or tried it on, I presume?), then you really shouldn’t be that upset. And you’re just speculating that this girl MIGHT have the same dress…a dress that nobody is going to remember except you. Your FI is marrying YOU. He loves YOU and thinks YOU are beautiful, and you wearing a popular dress isn’t going to change that. If he thinks another girl looks better in the dress, you’ve got bigger problems…

What if you try it on and hate it? That happened to me with a dress I was in love with. Hell, I tried on a dress and loved it on me, but 6 months later I was relieved that I didn’t buy it b/c I suddenly hated it.

No one is going to look more gorgeous to your FI in that dress than YOU will. Honestly, do you really think a man is going to remember that dress seen in previous weddings a day after it happens? No. He’ll say it was a long white dress and then use some vague descriptors. However, he will remember you in that dress and he’ll find you stunning I’m sure!

Try not to freak out about it.

@rumpunch712:  I understand why you are stressing but you don’t know for sure if this up coming bride will have the same dress. And even if she did, and if you FI saw it, then saw you on your wedding day, I doubt he would think, oh yeah, did that girl wear the same dress and does my FI look really crappy in it? No. No he wouldn’t. Men really don’t pay that much attention. At the end of the day, I know you want it to be a one of special, and it still will be, it will be the ONE time you wear the dress, the ONE time you get married. Etc etc.

@rumpunch712:  Honestly I dont think I would even notice!…there is a lot going on at a wedding, lots to take in and I am positive I wouldnt notice UNLESS it was something really unusual that caused me to remember it…Oh and IF it somehow happens to be the same dress then you could always add something a little different to it…like a coloured underskirt (love that) or a coloured sash or jewelled sash…I am sure you can put your own statement on it:)

@rumpunch712:  I can understand what you are saying and how you are feeling. I just don’t think he’s going to remember. Men only seem to REALLY remember a good meal and great sex. The rest is a wash.

Good news is that he’ll remember your wedding day which is all you both really want. Hang in there and try to roll with the punches. If you need to, tell your friends and family to STFU and show you some love.
