Hi everyone, So I have found and bought my dream wedding dress (we are getting married in just over a year). However, since making my purchase I've seen via social media two other brides wearing the same dress. Some of my wedding guests (close friends) went to these weddings and I don't know whether I should look for another dress? What do people think? Has it lost its specialness? X

I can understand why you are concerned but I think you will all look totally different in the same dress. I am sure you will all have different colour schemes and accessories so if it is your dream dress stick with it. Is it still special to you? Then keep it. If you aren't sure ... then look around and see if anything else better comes up.

If you love it keep it and to be honest in a years time I doubt whether the guests will recognise the same dress anyway x

As you didn't go to the other weddings it really wouldn't matter. Plus the same dress looks so different on different people. Especially if your hair and accessories are different

Hi only you can answer that question, is it still special to you that's all that matters :)

This happened to me too but honestly don't worry, dresses look different on different people and you'll probably have different hair and Accessories x

I agree that dresses look different on different people. I'm sure you'll look stunning and it's the dress you love x

I've had this exact problem! Also getting married in over a year.
Luckily I had already bought an accessory for it that completely changes the look of it.
I fell in love with the dress and it made me feel incredible when I tried it on so I'm going to stick with it.
It looked totally different on the other person anyway with shoes/hair/jewellery etc

what you need to remember it's your day and your dress and screw it if other people have worn the same type of dress. You are the only one wearing THAT dress there are so many of the same dress all around the world. Just take your dress and make it... YOU. At the end of the day and if people don't like it then that's tough your wedding day is about you & your h2b and isn't the only persons opinion that matters is you and your h2b.

Its obviously a beautiful dress as other people have worn same style... Unless you have 1 especially made & insist its never allowed to be copied, its always going to be that some1 else has same dress...

If it's your dream dress nothing else that you try on will compare, stick with it.

The "special dress" is special to you. Does it still hold the magic for you? If so then keep it, if not look at getting another one. There is absolutely no harm in looking at other dresses until you are 100% happy with your choice.

dresses always look different on other brides due to body shape. I'm sure no-one would even notice it's the same dress xxx

You could add to it, maybe a crystal belt or flowers & you will have different accessories & bouquet
