IMO you are being a bit of a drama queen. Of course other people are going to have the same outfit on…even down to the tiara and veil (because they probably pair the dresses with certain accessories on a regular basis within the stores)

It would be difficult if you both bought the same dress, but I think it would be unreasonable to expect a dress store to not try and sell their clients dresses, tiaras, and veils. No one wants to feel like a cookie cutter, but David’s Bridal is a mass-market store. You must have looked spectacular in that dress for the other bride to think “Wow! I have to try that on.” It was a display dress, which probably means it’s fairly popular. The truth is, no one really gets to be a “unique bride” unless you make your own dress; this is maybe weird to admit, but most bridal gowns look alike to me. Besides, it’s not like that bride will be at your wedding! If you look amazing in the gown, you should get it even if some other girl likes the dress too.

I can understand your feelings of frustration, but I really do think you will get that kind of generic experience at chain stores.  But, your Maid/Matron of Honor and Mom are right…even at boutiques, girls may have the same dress as you.  As far as the other bride goes, remember:  Imitation is the highest form of flattery!  You must have looked stunning in that dress!!  Maybe you should reconsider that gown.

I would suggest going to small boutiques since David’s Bridal obviously wasnt a great experience for you. I am sorry your feelings got hurt 🙁

I think you are being a little over dramatic you were not even there to buy a dress. She bought her dress and how do you not know that she didnt already try that dress on before. I have been to davids twice and still havent bought a dress. 

And I went in with my hair in a bun (a lot easier for trying on dresses) but if i thought a dress was a contender i pulled my hair out of the bun because I wanted to see what the hair looked like down.

Yes it sucks that she was trying on the same dress as you But she did buy the dress…

I understand that it may be upsetting to have a dress taken away from you to have another bride try it on. The same happened to me, but i’ve even seen it happen on “Say Yes to the Dress”. are you sure the other bride was copying you? Theres only two basic ways to wear your hair..up or down. There’s only so  many styles of white dresses/veils/hairstyles I seriously doubt she was even paying attention to you…I don’t know why it was such an issue

I don’t think your feelings are justified. There’s a limited selection of dresses at David’s Bridal, and I’m pretty positive the other bride wasn’t getting the same dress/ensemble just to annoy you. I’m sorry you felt like the attention was being taken away from you but I think you should just be happy that obviously you chose a beautiful dress since it’s one of the most popular ones. Don’t worry – the other bride won’t be at your wedding.
