Is it THE dress or just similar?  I think if it’s you, it would be terrible to not get it just b/c it is similar.  I think with the added unique touches, people won’t notice.

With all due respect, I think you are being a bit silly ! No one (especially your FI) will know or remember Carrie’s dress. I assume you mean the one she was going to wear to the library before Big bailed?

I say, if you love it, you should wear it and not give SATC a second thought.

hemmm. I’ve seen the movie and can’t remember the dress… I mean this in a good way. I think so much emphasis was on her shoes in the scene… oh unless you are talking about her first wedding… she actually had two dresses in the movie. Anyway, the movie very much gave more emphasis to her shoes anyway so unless there are some super die-hard fans on your guest list I don’t think anyone will really even know that it is the dress from SATC unless you tell them. But really it all depends on how you feel about it. If you can forget that it’s the SATC dress I say go for it. Otherwise, I think it might always be in the back of your mind and in that case, it might give you bad feelings toward the dress throughout your wedding day…

While in theory I totally get what you mean (its the principle!!) I think you should just get the darn dress!!

If no one had ever told you it was based on the SATC dress would you have bought it without hesitation??

I googled the picture and this is a hard dress to pull off.  And, In My Humble Opinion Carrie (SJP) looked awful because is she so thin, neither the dress or she was complimented by it.

If you were told you looked amazing in it and you felt amazing in it.  Go for it.

Okay, I saw the movie but I couldn’t begin to remember what Carrie’s dress looked like.  If I were you, I’d get the dress.  The girls at the shop probably tell brides about the SATC connection to try to entice them further to buy it.  I really don’t think anybody is going to see you in this dress and think of Carrie in SATC.  If they do, they need to get out more — HA!!

If you DON’T buy the dress, then SATC wins.  Buy the dress.  Serioulsy.

if you love the dress it shouldnt matter where the idea of the dress came from. Did anyone with you or yourself mention that the dress looked like it was from SATC? To me it sounds like that is the dress for you and you should get it. Would love to see pics too =)

I had to google it to remember what the dress looked like so I think your safe.

Just ask yourself if you’ll regret it later if you don’t get it?

Shes’s going to get it yay!!! I really doubt ppl will remember it was from SATC even if it looks just similar. And if they do…. great!! Because Carrie did not look good on that dress and then they will be admiring how good you make the dress look 😀

I’m intrigued! Do you have a pic of you in the dress you’d like to share?! Laughing
