OMG These Six Women Showed Up To A Wedding Dressed Almost Exactly Alike

And they weren't even bridesmaids!

Posted on

So hopefully these women were well-fed and tipsy when they realized they were all wearing the essentially the exact. same. dress. at bride Julia Mammone's Sept. 16 wedding.

“I turned up and did a double take when I saw my cousin in the same dress and she mouthed 'Oh my god' back at me from the other side of the reception room," Debbie Speranza, who's standing to the left of the bride, told the Daily Telegraph. “Next thing we knew there were four others in the same friggin' dress. What a bloody nightmare."

Mammone told the Daily Telegraph that she thought the whole thing was “friggin’ bloody hilarious," but some of the matching women weren't so thrilled.

“At first there were a few dirty looks among the girls in the same dress who didn’t quite know whether to laugh it off or go home and get changed. In the end we all cracked up about it. It’s every girl’s worst nightmare, what else can you do?"


The frock is by Forever New, and it's honestly a really great dress to wear to a wedding — it's a neutral navy blue, it's got a fun pattern, and the neckline and length are appropriate for almost any level of formality.

And apparently, all six of these women feel the same way about it. “Some people think it’s a publicity stunt for Portmans [the Australian shop that sells the dress]," Mammone said of the dress-matching incident, which appears to have been completely by accident. "I’ve been waiting for this day for three years — why would I pimp my wedding out for them?”

Speranza shared the delightful photo of the accidental bridesmaids to Forever New's Facebook page, where it's gotten more than 11,000 comments, most of which expressed disbelief at the coincidence.

"OMG that’s unbelievable," one person commented, while another wrote, “They are now honorary bridesmaids.”

Some, though, accurately pointed out that the dresses are NOT as identical as they seem at first glance. Upon closer inspection, the leftmost dress and the one third from the left are the same as each other, but slightly different from the other four.

So ok, they're not exactly the same, but if you saw someone at a wedding whose dress looked just like yours, save for some extra lace here and a slightly different pattern there, you'd still feel like you had a doppelgänger in the room, right?

    They're so similar that they definitely look like they're all matching!
    Who cares if you match another guest at a wedding, anyway?
