BM dress copying... is this offensive?

Recommended Posts

My MOH's sister had bridesmaid dresses in her wedding that I thought were really pretty and would go well with my theme. Given that my MOH already has the dress and my other bridesmaid could wear one from her other sister, I can't help but think it's a good way to get another use out of dresses that will likely never get used again.

 

However, I have this feeling I might be offending her sister by using the same dresses. Would anyone be offended if a friend of yours wanted to have the same dresses in her wedding? (only one or two people would actually end up attending both weddings but maybe a dozen or so would see pictures).

 

Thanks!

I'd just ask her first. I personally wouldn't care at all. I had a friend who did the same thing. It was great to get to wear a BM dress twice. So many of the styles are similar anyway.

I think it's a great idea and it will save some of the bridal party money since they are travelling.

 

If you are concerned, talk to the sister if you are close. If you aren't close I don't think it matters.

 

Tell her she had great taste and you hope she is excited to share her find with you. I think if you put a positive spin on it will be fine. I personally wouldn't mention the saving money aspect, because I wouldn't want anyone to feel like we were using "leftovers".

I persoanlly wouldn't care but I would see what her thoughts are, and go from there. To me, I enjoyed looking for the BM dresses, picking colors, etc, making it all unique to fit my personality is the fun part of planning. But if you loved the dresses, I say go for it, there are no rules! Good luck, keep us posted!

Great idea! I would be excited if my bridesmaid dresses got used for another wedding! My flower girls will be using the same dress they wore for my cousins wedding. Go ahead and do it!

I echo... at least have a conversation. Play to her ego if you have to, "you have such good taste" ect...

 

I personally wouldnt care because the BM dresses are supposed to compliment the bride ... so in terms of my theme and whatnot, they are a piece of the picture -- but ultimately, people are looking at the bride anyway. When I see wedding pictures, I see the bride's dress... but I ultimately see just the color of the BM dresses -- I guess I just don't pay attention to the style all that much.

i picked mine b/c one of my bms already had the dress from another wedding. i barely know the other girl, so i didn't care what she thought. all 3 bms have worn it since, which makes me happy.

doesn't hurt to have a conversation. who would actually say "yes, i mind"??

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
