Cant believe that my future sister in law has bought the same wedding dress as me. Yes I got married several months ago but why did she buy the same dress. Half of her guests will have seen it?? Shocked, feel she is trying to upstage me a bit. But then again maybe Im just shocked.

Woah… did she realize it was the exact same dress or did she just think it was similar? I can’t imagine why anyone would do that. Instead of upstaging you, she’ll just look like a copy-cat. Sorry 🙁

I agree. I won’t reflect on you. She will be the ridiculous looking one.

Are your body shapes different? If so, as long as she chooses to accesorize it differently (maybe a sash or something?), people might not realize they are the same dress. Still, yeah, that’s really weird, I’d be a bit upset too

I guarantee the guests won’t remember and realize that they’re both the same dress. Nobody analyzes these things like us brides do. To the guests, it’s a big white dress. And I’m sure you remember what it was like to go dress shopping… she may not even realize it’s the same dress. Sometimes it’s very difficult to find “the one” you want to wear on your big day, and if she got tears and all that when she tried it on, maybe it simply felt like the right dress for her.

Do you think she realizes it’s the same one? I bet she will be more upset than you are when she figures it out…

Seems super odd… maybe she liked it so much on you?

Ooooooh, that’s super freaky. I had a college room mate like that who copied me on everything. At first it was kind of flattering but then it totally wierded me out as in other people started noticing as well and told me to watch the movie Single, White Female. That movie didn’t help me one bit.
Well, I agree that it won’t reflect on you! That is really weird but I guess she thought you looked really fantastic in that dress!

She said she really liked it, looked for dresses but kept coming back to it. Its quite detailed, maybe she will add a veil, but we are both the same height, fair skinned and she is about 10pounds lighter, I think its gonna look the same. In fact she could probably have taken my dress and saved herself some money. Dont think id have given her it. Seriously getting more annoyed about it.

imitation is the best form of flattery.

Its weird and annoying, but you wore it first. Your mutual guests will remember that.

@mypinkshoes: Totally agree.
In the end, it’s her wedding, and she has every right to buy any kind of dress she wants. If she wants to do the same colors as you, or have the same favors, or have the same whatever..it is her perogative.
No one owns the rights to anything. People copy each other all the time! One of my friends that got married a few months after I did, copied my centerpieces exactly (even went to the same store to get the flowers) because she loved them so much. I was very flattered that she liked my idea so much that she wanted to use them for her own wedding.
She is going to look completely different in the dress than you did. I bet no one even notices that it’s the same dress. So many designers make similar dresses anyway. I agree with the poster that said all the guests will see and remember is a big white dress.

I think that’s weird. But it will only reflect on her, not you.

I’m not quite sure how she can “upstage” you if your wedding was several months ago. I think it’s time to move on. Seriously, I don’t understand all these posters saying how annoying and upsetting it would be. Do you seriously expect anyone other than your immediate family and yourself to remember every detail of your several months’ old wedding? Honestly, who cares? How is it going to affect your life?

@irelandchris: The fact that she knowingly bought your dress is super weird…
