Really glad they had a small ceremony out of state, because we have a lot of the same friends that are going to mine. The dress photographs BEAUTIFULLY and she's getting a lot of compliments but gosh what are the odds? Anyone else have an IRL dress twin?

    I would feel so awkward seeing my dress in real life! How Are you styling yours vs hers? Out of curiosity

    And here's me in it!! I decided to go non belt. And I can't tell but she may have gone with white and I went with cafe. The front view of hers makes it obvious that it's the same with how the deep v/lace is

    I think so too! Haha thank you, she's from high school and most people who are coming are family or college so I'm not too worried, just such a small world that my weddings next month.

    And thank you that's so sweet!! Final fitting this week i can't believe it's finally so close

    Is the model wearing the white or the cafe? It looks white to me, whereas yours definitely had more color to it. Enjoy every minute - it goes fast!

    Wow, it is a really pretty dress, so I can see why you both ended up with it, but it is pretty crazy! You look beautiful in it though!

    I had a dress I really liked at DB, and it was about to be discontinued and I almost bought it, but I decided to go with a different dress. I then saw two of my male Facebook friends post pics from their weddings and their brides wore that same dress. And one of the guys was an ex boyfriend of mine haha! So that would have been really weird. I really wanted a unique dress I wouldn't see on anyone else! Luckily after I bought it, it was discontinued pretty quickly so no one else I know will have it!

    It's such a gorgeous dress. Definitely can see why it is popular! How do you feel about it? I know some people care a lot and others could care less.

    Actually, I now have a fairly new friend IRL *because* we had the same dress. Tracy and I met on here and bonded over the fact that we had the same dress. We ended up emailing each other about wedding stuff and then it switched to emailing basically daily and it has expanded into life in general, not just wedding stuff. She lives near a place I go on trips to a couple times a year so we met IRL and I actually get to hang out with her again in a week and a half! She just got her pro pics back and I LOVE seeing all the pictures of her in her dress!

    Your dress is gorgeous. I probably would have had a shocked moment when I realized we had the same dress. Then I probably would have

    laughed and chalked it up to having great taste.

    Regardless, you are going to look amazing in your dress on your big day.

    No one will ever have my dress because I designed it myself. I wanted something specific and couldn't find it. And now I know that no one will ever look better in my wedding dress than I do because no one will ever have the same dress.

    I tried this dress on! Lol. It's gorgeous. That's pretty funny that she had your dress, but like you said...luckily most of your guests haven't seen it. And even if they had, who cares? You're going to look amazing!

    I got my dress at a trunk shop coupled with the fact I only know 2 other people getting married, one shopped at DB (which I did not) and my MOH sister has a different dress cause I've seen it so I should be ok.
