    I’ve been extra careful to buy dresses that are nothing like my wedding dress for all of the wedding pre parties. I voted for the day after celebration. You really don’t want to give anything way before your big day.

    It would be nice to wear it out to dinner on your first anniversary as a reminder of your big day. If you can wait that long 🙂

    It’s a lovely dress!

    Does anyone have to know its a dress that looks like your wedding dress? I would vote wear it for the Rehearsal Dinner if it were me. Or are you going on a honeymoon? Take i to wear to a really nice dinner while there! =) both dresses are really pretty!

    OMG.  I am wearing the Baklava Modcloth dress at my bridal shower because, like you, my wedding gown has diagonal ruffles! I thought it would be SO cute.  I have a feeling the only people that will realize the similarity will be my mom and my sister, so I don’t think it will give away any secrets.  I just like personally knowing that I am keeping with a “theme” I guess?  I can’t believe you and I had the same idea!!!

    PS – I think if it’s at the shower, it’s far enough away from the wedding date that people won’t realize.  The rehearsal dinner, however, is a different story.

    I think you could wear it to your bachelorette party or the shower before hand because your Fiance won’t be there. It is a super cute dress, but I wouldn’t want my Fiance to see it before hand 🙂 .

    Definitely wear it to the BBQ/reception people that were at your wedding will be awestruck wondering how the heck you had your wedding gown altered so quickly. What a great find!

    You’re not “giving away” what your dress looks like if you wear it before the ceremony, since you wont be broadcasting that your dress looks similar. I think it’s fine, and you are overthinking this! It’s so cute – wear it before the wedding!
