I wouldn’t worry too much about it – it was 3 years ago, and most people probably won’t remember! You LOVE your dress, so will your Fiance, and you will look completely different in it than your Future Sister-In-Law.

If the entire dress is similar, I don’t think a little broach will make a difference 😀 At this point it doesn’t really matter, right? I might talk to you SIL and let her know that you just realized your dresses are a little similar, but besides that it doesn’t really matter 😀 Just shows you both have good taste 😀

I don’t think you have anything to worry about.  Enough time has passed that any mutual guests are unlikely to remember the specifics of her dress and compare them to yours.

Besides, as you say, all dresses do look at least a bit alike.  There are only so many aesthetically pleasing ways to combine white material, beads and lace.

Just my two cents, I don’t think it is something any of your guests will notice, and your Future Sister-In-Law probably won’t either. It sounds like it’s a similar style, but obviously not the same dress. I think if you are still worried, just make sure your accessories are a different style than hers, I think that should be enough to make the dress seem different in your mind. But no one is going to be sitting at your wedding and comparing your dress to hers.

don’t worry about it! a LOT of gowns are white satin floor-length gowns with ruching. no one will notice, and since it was 3 years ago i really doubt your sil would care.

The way you described your dresses sounds like about 90% of wedding dresses today! I think you will be just fine!

@lola2011: “But there’s rouching, and they’re white, satin, floor length gowns.”

I think this description could apply to a lot of the wedding gowns out there right now!  Honestly, her wedding was three years ago – I doubt anyone will remember her dress and I can’t imagine she would be offended even if she thought your dress was similar.
