Copycat Conundrum

Ok, am I the only one that feels this way? Do you ever look at other brides' inspiration or ideas and think, "holy crap! That is EXACTLY what I was going for!?!?"

I am currently having that sinking feeling in my stomach. I cringe because I don't want to be viewed as a copycat!!!!

Realistically, I know that the guests at my wedding will have absolutely no idea if my choices are very similar to that of someone they don't even know...but it just gets my goat at the moment! It makes no sense either...I don't even know this person! I am so irrational...but how is it that there is someone else out there that is picking the same music, the same ceremonies, the same guest book ideas, etc. etc. etc.! I have always been someone who has fresh perspectives on things...someone who has cute ideas and inspirations. Apparently, I have a twin out there. Frustration...galore!

Has anyone else out there experienced this feeling? What did you do?


  1. I know what you mean! Sometimes I feel silly for blogging about stuff because I'm sure has already seen someone else do it. But, at the same time, I'm sure there are ideas/projects you've come up with that are being used as inspiration for someone else so it all works out!

  2. That's the only way you'll get inspiration though. Don't feel bad about it.

  3. I know what you mean, but I'm sure your guests--having only attended a few weddings a year--will have no idea! And, everyone's wedding is different some the very least the bride and groom is different! ;)


I love reading your comments, please feel free to leave me one! Thanks! :)
