I thought I would share this- I find it interesting!
While searching for my BB&B registry I noticed that there is another girl who is registered there who has the same name as me except her last name has an “s” on the end and mine does not. It turns out she is also getting married in North Carolina and her wedding is the day after mine! (My wedding was originally supposed to be on 4/16 yet we moved it 1 day earlier!) I called my wedding dress shop last week and asked if I could come in on Saturday to try on my dress. The owner seemed confused but said yes, come in at 10 a.m. When I get there she did a double take. It turns out the other girl who has the same name as me also bought her dress at said store and was just there 2 days ago trying it on. The owner thought she was coming back in to try her dress on again. And this dress shop isn’t a chain like Davids Bridal!
Isn’t that strange? I really kind of want to stalk (stalk in a good way- not a creepy way) the girl who I have so much in common with!

That’s too funny!
When I set up our wedding website on mywedding.com I was pretty surprised to find that there are not one but two other women with the same first and last name as me getting married next summer/fall. One of them is even marrying a guy with the same first name as my fiance! (and my MOH’s last name) It’s not like my name’s sarah smith or anything, either.

This reminds me of a something *kinda* similar that happened to me. I had a roomie named Linda Smith & she was moving out, so I posted an ad on craigslist looking for a new roomie. My roomie was on her computer at same time I got an email from a Lynda Smith. I had spelled my roomie’s name wrong, just like that a month ago, so I assumed it was my roomie pulling a prank. I made myself sound crazy lol. Telling her we lysoled guys & her Boyfriend or Best Friend could live in the shack next door & how she couldn’t steal my dog & to stop going to our neighbors for drugs. Turned out it was a TOTALLY different girl & for 2 days I told this Lynda girl about all our wierd inside jokes & so yea, same names happen!
Maybe you could add your middle name to your registry? Or do they let you post a photo of you? Hopefully she got a different dress than you did 🙂

I think it’s more common than we realize. We registered at Crate and Barrel and there was a girl registered whose maiden name is the same as my married name. Her wedding was the week before ours in the same state. It caused some confussion and we recieved 3 items off of her registry.

*Confession*- I checked out her registry! We registered for some of the same things, so I won’t be too upset if I receive some of her gifts!!
The owner of the bridal shop told me the other girls dress is lace! (mine is chiffon!)
I think I may try to find her tonight……….. 🙂
