mygoku–when is your wedding?  If it’s in a couple of months, my guess is that only you and the other bride will realize it’s almost the same dress.  (And yes, if you bustle the dress for the reception, it will lower the odds that someone else recognizes it even further.)  Besides, everyone will be thinking about how beautiful your dress is on you.  I’m sorry that you’re so disappointed and upset, but I think it will turn out alright.

i have to say that is def a brides worst nightmare.. but will all the differences you have stated I think it will be ok… Just don’t point out to anyone you had the same dress and odds are they won’t even realize…. smile!!

Oh definitely, I think you will be fine.  That many months passing by, I wouldn’t worry.  I would agree though that I’m sure it will look different on you based on your descprition of the other bride and also bustling the gown at the reception.  Don’t worry, you’ll be fine. 😀

I agree, I think people won’t remember. That’s 6 months and, as you have said, you will look different in the dress anyways.

I think it is just fine

It is amazing how the SAME dress can look totally different on another person. You are your own bride and I am sure you will look totally unique and pretty.

I would be a little annoyed too…but if I took a step back I think I would realize that it is ok.

No one will even notice!

I think you’ll be just fine.  No one will notice but the other bride, and maybe she won’t even notice!  I think people notice a lot less than what we fear they’ll notice.  Sounds like you’re going to look amazing in the dress!

omg awful! Maybe there is something you can do to spice up your dress, like add more embellishment, have the neckline altered to a sweetheart, or wear a sparkly sash, you know, something minor but just enough? Regardless, if she looked bad in it, then at least you know you’re going to rock the frock and I doubt anybody will even notice the resemblance except for her. They might notice a slightly similiar style, but I think you can spruce up the dress enough to make it just different enough that nobody even notices. I doubt anyone will care, but talk about some bad luck!

So, are you still wearing your dress? Did you ever recover?
