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"??

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
