I'm getting married next year and my sister will be a guest at my wedding. Although we see each other we are not close and never have been. Well she came to see me try my dress on and has has been looking for a dress for my wedding, she found a dress that my friend had as her wedding dress and wanted to get that. I said no way, it's similar to my dress and it's my wedding. So she has now bought the shorter version of this dress, low back like mine and same colour as my dress. Am I being unfair being really annoyed? She knows how I feel. But I am deeply upset and my mum seems to think this is ok too. ???
Rachael Simon Morris - So just to be clear she has bought a wedding dress to wear to your wedding and you're not supposed to be upset? Holy Christ almighty, no one but the bride is permitted to wear a wedding dress to their wedding. It doesn't matter the length or the colour, if its the same as the bride it's not ok. I would be fuming if anyone turned up to my wedding in white let alone in another f***ing wedding dress. Tell her to buy another dress or don't come. Simple as that.
Georgina Crinnion - I really don't understand posts like this, no one will be looking at your sister, even if she did have a dress exactly the same as you. It's YOUR wedding day all eyes will be on the bride and groom. I've been to loads of weddings and not once have I noticed what the other guests are wearing and I am sure I have been to weddings where guests have worn white. To me it makes no difference, the day is about marrying the person you love and that's why your guests are there not to watch your sister or other guests. I would say to try and relax and if your really really aren't happy with what she is wearing then speak to her but honest opinion, no one will even notice what she is wearing x
Carole Robertson - In all honesty you can't dictate to guests what they can/cannot wear to your wedding but I'd be a bit annoyed if someone had a very similar dress to mine.
Siobhan Maria-Louisa Lillywhite Knight-Potgieter - Completely not okay. Ask her to get a different dress if she says no say well I'm afraid you are no longer welcome, it is my wedding day and you are doing something that will grab attention.
Also your mum should absolutely be on your side with this ! X
Jemma Moore - It's your wedding and your sister should be supportive and your mum should be backing you. I would be kind but firm and just say you are not happy with her wearing a dress like your wedding dress as it's our day but maybe offer to go shopping with her to find another dress??? Xxx
Kimberleigh Richardson-French - Its not ok. But she'll look like the prat. Dont waste your time on this. I was at a friends wedding and a guest (admittedly a stunningly beautiful guest) turned up in a long white dress. All i could hear was people whispering 'what the hell' , 'why the bloody hell would you come trying to look like the bride'. After about an hr, she was well aware it was the wrong choice!
Charlotte Nobby Peake - Absolutely not okay!!! Even if you don't get on that great or haven't been close you would expect her to respect your wishes when you asked her not to buy the dress!!!!!! Not on and really not something you should tolerate!! Invite should be taken back if she continues it's not fair to stress you out before your big day.
Dawn O'Driscoll - I'd be thinking if she looks good in it or not, if not leave her to it and let her take the flack for it all day and get a nice little joke about it in the speeches too! If she looks good in it, then absolutely not !
