@feleciaq: How do YOU feel about wearing your sister’s dress?

Are you close to her?

Do you like the dress?

Do you feel like a bride in it?

I think it is a fantastic idea IF you are happy with it.

Sounds like a great idea if you love the dress.  I wish I had a sister to share special things like this with!!  I won’t even get a SIL… 🙁

I agree with @KatNYC2011:‘s questions and advice.  Have you tried it on?  How did you feel when you did?

Also, if you like it, you can definitely accessorize to make it your own.

It totally is your decision. If you feel ok with it so will everyone else.

If the style of dress works, you could always add a sash – a colored ribbon would change the look entirely.

Who cares if other people will notice or what they think?  If you like the dress, and are ok with it, go for it!!

like others, if you and your sister are happy/ok with it, then i see no problem.  the only thing i question is have you looked in dry cleaning?  mine cost me $300.  and perhaps for that price you could get a different dress second hand.  however, if you are able to clean for super cheap, then ignore what i just said.

@feleciaq: Then, if you are happy with it and your sister is good with it, it is great to be able to share something so special with your sister!

I think if you are fine with wearing it, and it makes you happy, then awesome! go for it! don’t worry about what other people might think! (they are silly if they are going to “judge” you for it or anything!)

I totally think that wearing your sister dress would be fine!  I am getting married next week and I have a twin sister who is getting married in June of 2012.   She is considering wearing my dress and I don’t mind at all!!  Im getting married in the town we are originally from and she is getting married 8 hours away on the beach.  I dont think that many people would notice, especially if you have your own veil and accessories!!  Good luck!

My Mom and her 3 sisters all wore the same wedding dress, unfortunately it was way to small to fit me but I thnk it’s great to share that connection with your sister! It gives even more meaning to that wonderful piece of clothing!
