You can use the same colours but in a different way perhaps??   Like if her Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are lavender, have yours green maybe? or vice Versa.   Obviously your themes will be different so I really don’t think anyone would notice.  

Can you just mention to her that you were thinking of incorporating those colours too?

I think you should make your Pinterest boards private and plan the wedding that YOU want, theme and colors and all. Accept that there may be some overlap, because you’re getting married so close and there are certain fads.

I wouldn’t worry that others will notice and think that you “copied” — most people are just not that aware of this sort of thing, and there will be some time between your events anyway.

Have the event that best expresses the personalities and interests of you and your fiance, and go for what makes you happy decor-wise.

@YogaFaerie:  I really don’t think it’s a big deal to have some overlap.  I actually had a coworker who looked through my wedding photos while she was engaged and was like “I’m copying your wedding exactly”, and yet in actual execution I didn’t really see much similarity at all!

It really doesn’t sound like you two have much in common. So even if you do have the same colors, it sounds like her wedding will be more run of the mill, and yours will be more “offbeat”. I guarantee, if she has strapless lace mermaid with birdcage or mason jar centerpieces, and you have bell sleeved, Juliet-style gown with a head circlet and a court jester bridal party with mead all around….no one is going to confuse the two weddings or think anyone is copying anyone. Your ideas all sound gorgeous btw.
