Why worry about it? It isn’t her wedding, it’s yours and what makes you happy is what matters. Who cares if you both have lavender as a color? No one will remember it ten years from now but you will remember how happy you were on your special day. Keep the lavender

Keep your colors!  No one will even notice.  There are only so many colors out there and a lot of people love purple.  Your wedding will be unique because it’s your wedding

are you having all the same colors or just one of the same?? It is a big diffrence if you are both doing lavender and (insert color here) and if you are doing just the same accents. I know I am doing purple and yellow as my main two colors and using silver,green,brown and ivory as accents.

My girls dresses are purple with yellow accents but I have seen were other poeple are doing the same colors but in a diffrent ratio such as brown dresses with ppurple sashes with other accdents or silver dresses with purple and white flowers. There are thousands of color combos out there it dosent mean you have to change your color

 

NNot all Purple/lavender is created equal. I google searched and came up with hundreds of diffrent styles. Try It. It will make you feel better.

Wait are the bridesmaids suggesting they use the same dress for both of your weddings? This is how I understood “they were so happy ’cause they said they were not going to have to spend twice”.

It was definately a snarky thing to say, but maybe she was just trying to joke because she was uncomfortable? Regardless, keep your colors and don’t stress. There’s a lot more to a wedding than a color.

@dazzledbyEddy:  I understand. That would be the one thing I don’t think I would be ok with… especially since her wedding is first. It sounds selfish because it IS an opportunity for them to save money… but at the same time that is just a bit too far for me. 

I think your wedding will be completely different from hers… but I wouldn’t let them wear the same dresses. It isn’t going to be an easy conversation but I think that they would understand if they considered it from your perspective. 

Good luck!

dazzledbyEddy: I think that you doing gray and her doing all purple is a huge diffrence. The fact that you are dong probably a diffrent “feel” will come thru too. I love the look of silver lavender and ivory.

My only thing would be dont get caught up in what everyone does and do the same things as your friend. Try to make sure you pick diffrent flowers/arrangments. You can mix it up by doing tea length dresses is she does floor lenght ect. Trust me they will look diffrent in the long run!
