    If it were me, I wouldn’t lose any sleep over it.  The new Duchess’ designer ripped that dress off of Grace Kelly’s.  Replicate away and be happy with your new dress.

    A lot of bees have replicas, so I don’t want to say that it’s wrong to replicate (I’m kind of ‘meh’ on the issue since I didn’t think about it), but even if it were, I still think you would be fine since there’s no way for you to get the original. Sleep well tonight, and get your dream dress!

    I think it’s fine to take ideas and inspiration from dresses you’ve seen…but there’s something kinda seedy about copying. Having said that…I’m sure girls have saved thousands and were happy with their replicas but I were a bride with a replica..I’d be upset if I felt like people were calling it a knockoff behind my back.

    Well wedding gowns cannot be copywrited so there is nothing illegal about it. Some lace patterns are copywrited but not dress designs because as far as the law is concerned they are not orignial enough and no matter how unique the dress someone has done something similar before at some time. If you are concerned about this for moral reasons then why not just ask your dress maker to change one small thing about the dress and make completely original and you? I used Shades of Pale Bridal http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Shades-of-Pale-Bridal-The-Little-Velvet-Box/196879553692866 I took different aspects of different dresses and had them put together to make a dress perfect for me and they are very very good at helping you design your dress.
