This is a bit of a vent
My best friend showed me her wedding dress the other day and apart from it being a bridesmaid dress which she ordered in ivory and her dress costing $300 and mine costing $2000 they are so similar….to top it all off she bought identical earings white hair flower and bracelet….I know imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but come on!
not to mention she got the exact same engagement ring and wedding band as me….
I don’t know why this gripes me so much it just does, I guess cause I went to so much effort finding unique things and now she has just copied them
The first pic is her Alfred Angelo dress
Here is my Maggie Sottero Rehearsal Dinner1044
and here is a pic of me in it so you can see the earings etc

I can see how that would be annoying. But how far apart are your weddings? If you got married over a year ago and hers is still a while away, it might be ok. Are there a lot of overlaps with your guest lists? I was a bridesmaid a few years ago and wore your wedding dress in a latte. It’s a gorgeous dress, so it’s bound to be popular.
But having the same accessories and engagement ring?! That’s just so odd!

I think yours is much prettier.
It’s frustrating but the dresses are different, and yours is much nicer. There’s nothing to do but take it as a compliment.
I agree with @winerygirl: having the same accessories and engagement ring?! That’s just so odd

@simpleandchic: The bride got a seamstress to make it. I’m not sure where she got the inspiration from.

Your dress is much more detailed and beautiful. Her dress looks like a bridesmaids dress. I don’t think anyone will think that they are alike to be honest and if they do, yours is the hands down winner.

How sad for your friend that she can’t come up with any original ideas, and has to copy yours. The part where she wanted the same rings is kind of creepy, actually.

I would kind of feel sorry for her, actually… I would just ignore her. She definitely can’t overshadow you and your dress, even if she does her best to imitate.

wow. yours is much prettier by the way… oh… and since your wedding will first everyone that does remember your dress will think how much of a copycat she is.. so no worries there! I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

Yes, the dresses may be *similar*, but there are SO many differences between the two I am almost hesitant to say they are. Your dress looks absolutely amazing and expensive. The fabric and details on yours is what gives it that gorgous bridal look. I am not sure why but her dress looks more night-gownish to me. Maybe it will look different in person but judging by the pics, she aint got nothin on you!
Agreed kinda creepy though! Atleast you had your wedding first. Maybe you should buy the bridesmaid version of her dress (her dress in a different color) and wear that to her wedding!

I would be annoyed at this friend for copying. It sounds like she really admires you and your taste in all things wedding, but that doesn’t give her an excuse to blatantly mimic you. Would saying something like “wow, that’s weird, everything you’ve picked looks EXACTLY like mine?” open her up for conversation? Needless to say, your Maggie absolutlely trumps her AA “knockoff”.

@smiles731: I’m with you. While there are some similarities, I don’t think they look that much alike.
It feels to me like if I said that anyone who wore a strapless, chiffon dress with beading was copying my dress.
And I’ve seen lots of people with wedding sets similar to mine. Again, I don’t think they are copying.

@Mrs.KMM: she’s my best friend and the dresses are in very similar fabrics 9may not look it in the photo cause its from a site where u can change the colour of the dress by clicking which always makes the fabric look flat) with flower straps over one shoulder, think of all the different styles out there she has blatantly copied me. And I have been on WB for 3 years and have hardly ever seen this style in a wedding dress so its not common or popular wedding dress style

Your dress is much prettier. Don’t let her bother you. She just looks like she’s ripping you off. Be flattered that she liked your design enough to copy it.
