- Wedding: May 2011
it depends how much is copied or what is copied. Small details like a cake topper or a card box isn’t too big of a deal. And a choreographed first dance isn’t a new idea (as long as she doesn’t pick the exact same version of the song you did, of course).
I would say if she copied your theme/colours or dress, I’d be a bit annoyed.
I think I would be flattered. She loved your ideas and wanted to incorporate them into her day. Especially hand making a card box or cake topper, I don’t think thats really a big deal.
I’d be annoyed if it was obvious she copied things from my wedding and people noticed, but if you don’t have the same guests, it doesn’t really matter. It’s a form of flattery, so I’d get over it fast.
I’d probably be flattered. Plus, there wouldn’t be many of the same guests at my friend’s wedding that were at mine. But there’s a line too, I think… as long as it was just a couple of things, it wouldn’t bother me… but if it got to the point that she was taking major things from my wedding like wearing the same dress, having the same bouquet.. it would definitely bother me.
It seems a little annoying but as long as it does not look exactly like yours it should be fine. Take it as a compliment, I’m sure your wedding was amazing and she just wants to make sure hers looks as good as yours.
Does she tend to copy you often?
as your wedding has already taken place i would try to take it as a compliment, especially considering choreographed dances and handmade card boxes are not unique
I would be flattered. But I wouldnt care if someone copied my entire wedding as long as it was after my wedding. It just means you have awesome taste
As long as her wedding was after mine, I would take it as a complement.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Thanks ladies. She will have the same guests. I know they are little things. Out here, surprise first dances are not common and when we did ours, everyone was in aw and really excited. So if they were to do that, half the guests would be like “wow they copied T’s wedding..”. So in the end, I wouldn’t look bad. Just sometimes, you want to be unique, you know?
It wouldn’t matter to me. Getting offended by a friend ‘copying’ my wedding plans would be silly and a waste of emotions.
I don’t know. I don’t really think so…. as long as my wedding was first. lol
A couple that is friend’s of ours is getting married in March and they hired our photog and are doing a photobooth and candy buffet because of us. Meh. I referred her to the photog and I’m letting her use the glassware from our candy buffet.
I definitely do understand the feeling though. You want to be the only one who did something. Instead, you get to be the one who did it FIRST.
