I ordered my wedding dress earlier this year and when I had my first fitting I was very happy with it. In the last two months, however, I have been regetting my decision I have seen a wedding dress on a Facebook profile that I have fallen in love with. It is the type of wedding dress that I was looking for before I found mine but for some reason I went with a different design when I chose mine. The one I’ve seen on Facebook is beautiful. I really want it and I know the name of the designer (my wedding dress is from the same designer) so it can be made. My dilemma is that I would be coyping someone else’s wedding dress and I don’t know how I feel about that.
I still think the one that I have is beautiful but it is not the one that I want to wear. I don’t know how to explain what I was thinking the day I chose my dress as I really liked it then but I do know that it is not the one that I want to wear.
I hope I don’t sound overly emotional but I’m so upset about this
I guess I just want to speak to you about my situation.
Many thanks in advance.

@Rani: i understand how stressful this can be. In regards to “copying” the other dress – how well do you know this person? Are they even invited to your wedding? And is the dress or designer a popular one? And how far apart would your weddings would be. Basically i think if it was a close friend, who had her wedding 2 weeks before yours and it was a rare dress, then it might be weird to have the same one. But once those fators change (not a close friend/not invited to your wedding, weddings are far apart, and poplular style) or something in between, then it really doesn’t matter.

It’s really hard not to fall into this trap, simply because there is so much choice out there for sale. You’ll drive yourself nuts if you keep checking out dresses. Take the advice given on SYTTD: once you’ve picked a dress, stop shopping, stop looking, and stop torturing yourself. There will *always* be other dresses to catch your eye and make you feel less satisfied with the one you’ve bought; don’t let them take what was once a happy decision and make it a sad one.
