An engagement so nice, they're celebrating twice. Lea Michele celebrated her upcoming wedding with fiancé Zandy Reich AGAIN over the weekend with a second engagement party. Because why not, right?

“She’s a lady! “ Michele wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of her second engagement party look. “Thank you @switchboutique for helping me pick out the perfect bride to be dress for our engagement party last night!” The actress and singer chose a navy Cushnie backless midi dress with a draped neckline for the oh-so-extra event.

If the dress looks familiar, there's a royal reason. Popsugar points out that Michele's engagement party frock is very reminiscent of another famous bride’s pre-wedding wardrobe. The night before her royal wedding, Meghan Markle and her mother Doria Ragland arrived at Cliveden House, the hotel where they spent the night, with Markle wearing a similar off-the-shoulder navy blue dress from Roland Mouret.

It’s unclear if Michele actually took some style inspiration from the Duchess of Sussex or if "something blue" is just her signature bridal color. She wore the same hue at her first engagement party over the summer, where she rocked a gorgeous patterned blue off-the-shoulder midi dress. Her first bash was hosted by former Reba actress JoAnna García and Stephanie Levinson. There were plenty of other celebrities in attendance, too, with Hilary Duff, Ashley Tisdale, and Emma Roberts all showing up to celebrate the happy couple.

The only question left is if Michele will continue with her blue vibes on her wedding day (a major trend in wedding dresses right now). The Glee alum hasn’t revealed much about her actual wedding dress, except that it was an easy choice. “I saw a photo, it was the first one I tried on and it was the one that I picked,” Michele previously told PeopleStyle. “I’m a very decisive person so they said I was one of the easiest brides that they have ever dealt with.”
