I don’t get this.  You gave them 20 dress choices, and they were supposed to tell you which one they ordered.  Two of your girls ordered the same dress.  Is that correct?

@loves day: what about adding a belt or sash or some other accessory? in the end… it’ll be okay. she got a dress that was one of her options and it will work, so it’s not like she’ll stand out terribly or anything. it sounds like she’s not a great friend in general but it is what it is… frustrating!

Yea ask her to alter in a way to not look like the other girls dress, but if you do, i think you should have to pay for it.

@loves day: So 2 out of the 5 girls have the same dress? Honestly, I would let it go. yes, its annoying that she didnt pick a different one like you asked but at this point its probably too late to order a new one. I was in a wedding with 7 BM’s and the bride let us pick our own style. 2 had the same and 5 of us had different ones. It wasnt a big deal and the pictures still looked great

This sounds like a totally honest mistake. I think that if only two of the five have the same dress, your girls will still look great. Give her a break on this one and try to be excited about having her there with you on your wedding day!

I think you can make this work.  Nobody will probably even notice, or they will think it’s intentional.  Just put them in between your orther 3 (spots 2 and 4) with the other dresses being in spots 1, 3 and 5.

Why is it an issue that 2 girls have the same dress from the styles you selected? I think she followed your instructions, maybe she just liked this one best. How does this make her a bad friend? I personally don’t see anything wrong with what she did. If you want them to stand out differently I would do a sash or belt.

I think you are worrying about nothing.  So what if she ordered the same dress as another girl. No one is really going to notice. If you want her to alter or get a different dress you should be paying for it not her.
