ms1984:  No. There is no expectation that you will research the dress worn by all your married  female guests.

Absolutely not! It’s your wedding day and you picked your dress- enjoy it! It’s definitely not a faux pas- brides don’t own a dress for life. I wouldn’t care if someone wore the same dress as me even the very next day.

Have fun!

No no you are absolutely fine . Even if it were recognised as the same dress- which I bet it isn’t – you have made no faux pas at all. Don’t be tempted to mention it or sound as if you are apologising in any way either , will you !

one of my college friends wore my exact dress at her wedding 2 months before mine! And there was a lot of guest crossover. I was planning very some minor modifications anyway – I took the lace straps off (they were optional) and I changed a bow on the front to a diamanté thing (similar to a sash) and nobody noticed they were the same dress. My colours and accessories were also different. And I felt amazing in my dress! So most likely nobody will notice – enjoy your day and your dress!!

Because I love my dress so much I would love to see another bride in it.  Enjoy your day and wear whatever you want!

I bet the only person who notices is her. I remember dresses, but I would never be able to pick out the exact dress a bride wore… Especially 3 years later.
