Bridesmaid Dress Dilemma?

My best friend asked me to be her Matron of Honor. She emailed me today and said she would like to buy my dress and shoes. I am kind of stuck. I would like to buy it but is it ok if she does? She already will have enough to pay for. Any thoughts?

Pay for the dress & shoes, but tell her that is your wedding present to her. She's your best friend - don't be a cheap skate. (But, she can't expect more than that from you!)

Sounds good..yeah I don't really like the idea of her buying it for me anyway.

When I got married, I asked 3 girls to be in the bridal party. I paid for their dresses and hair accessories and gave them each a bone china cake plate to their china pattern. I did not expect gifts from them but they did so. As they also had to go to all the wedding showers (5) as well, I felt it was only right for me to pay for their outfits.

I do feel that if a bride asks someone to dress up special for their wedding, that they need to consider the incredible expense each of the bridal party will have.

I SUSPECT SHE FEELS OBLIGATED TO BUY THE DRESS FOR YOU BECAUSE SHE IS CHOOSING THE STYLE AND COLOR. YOU CAN OFFER TO PAY HER BUT LET HER CHOOSE THE DRESS AND SHOES - IT IS HER WEDDING.

See if you can pay for half of of the dress and the accessories.

You have a very nice friend indeed! I have been in many weddings and have always paid for the dresses myself. Believe me, it would break the bank if they were all totaled it up! Offer to buy the shoes or go half and half.

If she still insists, let her pay. But be sure to give the couple the loveliest gift you can afford and remember to keep your friendship alive over the years. Your friend obviously cares very much about you.
