Hmmm…never thought about it, but yeah, I’d be excited to see someone else in it!  Gives me a sense of what it would look like on a “real woman.”  Although…I have yet to meet another Bee wearing my dress!  Any Allure brides out there?

I’ve never seen another bride in my dress, but if I did my reaction would depend on whether the people I’m inviting to my wedding saw the bride wearing the dress I chose.  I don’t want people at my wedding thinking “oh, I saw this dress at so and so’s wedding last month”…that would really irk me.  I like to be as original as possible I suppose.  However, if I just randomly saw another girl wear it, I think I would be excited just to see how it looks on someone else!

i haven’t seen anyone in my dress, and i doubt i ever will as it’s not a wedding dress and it’s from a very small boutique. however, my friend did wear my wedding shoes at her wedding (mine are ivory, hers were white). she was so excited to show us her shoes, and there were my shoes! i didn’t like it, i want them to be my special wedding shoes. but of course i didn’t tell her that, and i’m sure she was thinking the same thing as me. i didn’t tell my fi this until we left the wedding because i knew he wouldn’t have noticed the shoes. i was right.

I agree with what others have said…I haven’t seen anyone else with my dress, but I’d be excited to!

I’ve never seen anyone else in my dress and I doubt that I will.  It’s from a couple of years ago, not to mention it’s pretty unique (I’ve never seen another dress like it)  I’ve only ever seen the model photo!

I would love to!!! I search the internet all the time, and stalk the Maggie brides page, just hoping…

Maggie’s Poppy? Anyone???? LOL

I like seeing it on websites like this because it gives me an idea of how it looks on a real person as opposed to a photoshopped magazine ad. As long as it doesn’t come too close to home 🙂 There was a Pronovias I’d tried on which I later saw on my photographer’s blog. That made me decide against that dress immediately. What if our pics ended up on the same blog and I looked worse wearing it than the other bride, LOL.

Ive only seen one or two people (in pictures) in my dress and I like it because I rarely see my dress!

Haha @ honeybun:  I’m Maggie “Carrie” and I search all the time to see it on a “real woman!”  I haven’t had any luck…

It definitely doesn’t bother me to see pictures…. now if I went to a wedding a week before mine and the bride was wearing the same dress, I’d be a little sad.  I think I’d be more irked if someone had my shoes though!  😉

I’ve only seen it once or twice on other people and I love seeing it! Although, I think that if I saw it on someone I know, I wouldn’t be as excited…it’s really just exciting if I don’t know them, haha.

one of my friend wore a very similar dress and I actually loved it! Gave me an idea of what it would look like in real life!

What’s really interesting is that my Future Sister-In-Law just married a guy from another country, and his best man’s new wife and I became friends on FB…. she wore the exact same dress I have–one year ago! And it looked fabulous on her. It was neat to have a kinship with her. 🙂 No one but Future Sister-In-Law will notice it’s the same, so I’m ok with it. Other than her, I haven’t seen anyone with my dress, which is pretty cool, but I would be all right if someone else wore it!

Add me to the “never seen it” club. I’ve looked and looked for another person who wore my dress and I haven’t found it! One of the bees (don’t remember who) tried it on, though. She didn’t have any pictures of her in it, though.

I would LOVE to see someone in my dress, but so far it didn’t happen… which I find curious because it’s a very classic dress…
