Every woman has been there at some stage in her life. You spend weeks or even months, scouring the shops for the perfect special occasion dress – only to discover another guest has turned up wearing exactly the same frock as you!
So, what are the odds then, of six women wearing the exact same wedding guest dress?!
We’d like to say they’re incredibly slim – but for six women attending a wedding in Sydney Australia recently, this is exactly what happened! Can you even begin to imagine?!
The ladies ended up looking like an extra set of bridesmaids as they posed for a picture with the bride… thankfully everyone was able to see the funny side!
The stunning navy lace dress, by Australian brand Forever New, retails at $160 which is roughly £95.
Debbie Speranza, one of the 6 women in the dress, wrote on the brand’s Facebook page: “You really should start a bridal registry so that your customers can enquire whether anyone else has purchased one of your dresses for the same event no we are NOT the bridesmaids just the guests think I deserve a gift voucher for all this advertisement.”
She explained the incredible coincidence to The Daily Telegraph: “My cousin and I walked into the reception and saw each other [in the same dress] and started laughing, but then another walked in … then another one … and another one. There were about 200 people there.”
“A couple of the women were a little bit ‘ahhhhh’ but then we all saw the fun in it. There’s a video of us telling the bridesmaids ‘ok if you girls stuff up we are ready’. We were like accidental sisters.”
The photo has since received over 45,000 reactions, 10,000 comments and 1.2k shares!
So, what do you think? What would you have done if this happened to you? Could you have seen the funny side if you were the bride and this happened at your wedding? Let us know! 🙂
