If it’s THE dress and you LOVE LOVE LOVE it, you should get it.

Personally though, I would go for another one (there are so many dresses out there, there will be other beautiful ones as well). I would choose this because I would prefer to be more unique (most dresses are sold everywhere anyway but at least it’s not the exact same one) and to avoid any drama.

That said, most people would have forgotten what your friend wore at her wedding so will not really notice. Only your friend will and her wedding is over and she wore the dress first so if anything, you would be the one who would have to “look better” lol;)

yeah… maybe this was a sign that it wasn’t the one? Or if you think it is, you could alter it to make it your own. But like pp said, you could probably find another one. take it as an opportunity to get to shop again… I kinda wish I could shop for dresses more! lol

many bees find a dress they love, then have dress regret later, go shopping a few more times and see if anything else strikes you.

if you love the dress then you love the dress. 

If she is your friend, she will want you to be happy and find the dress you want.

If you love the dress, then who cares if someone else wore it? The only way you would get a truly one of a kind dress is to design it yourself from scratch. Also, you are not a carbon copy of your friend so it will look completely different on you than it did on her. Also, guests won’t remember what the dress looked like. I really wouldn’t worry about it.

@cuddlz88:  If you want a different, similiar styled dress then post the pic and explore other dresses by the same designer. Whats the name of the dress?
