@RubyLeprechaun:  aww what a sweetheart! If you’re thinking of selling it, why don’t you use the proceeds on your MOH? Or maybe splurge on a wicked spa day for both of you to say thank you?

This actually made me tear up!  Sorry my emotions are all over the place being so close to my wedding date.. lol.  Anyway… what an awesome MOH!  I agree with PP that if you sell your dress, use the money to get something spectacular for your MOH – spa day is always a treat.  If she likes travelling, you can get a voucher towards airfare?

That is so incredibly sweet. I also agree with PPs that if you sell it, you should use the money to gift your MOH with something fantastic. That way, another bride can enjoy the dress, and you can do something nice for your MOH in return!

@RubyLeprechaun:  I agree with everyone else. Do something really nice for the two of you, or get her something you know she’s been lusting after but hasn’t splurged on for herself maybe. That was such a sweet thing for her to do!

@RubyLeprechaun:  maybe you can donate it in her name? There are likely a few organizations in your area that are in need of wedding dresses for brides.

if you do sell it I would give her all the money/gift. Very sweet of her to buy your dress.

When I first read the title I thought “Oh my God! What friend would buy the dress their friend wanted!?” thinking she was engaged too. Hah. Woops.

Your MOH is a total sweetheart though.

This is awesome!! How sweet!

Also, if she bought the dress – what if you asked her what you should do wiht it after the wedding. You could tell her your suggestions and see if she’s game for a spa day or a gift or whatever. I would just alsoways wonder if she bought it because she wanted it for her wedding as well? Unless she is married…but still if she paid for it I would still ask.

@LiliKitty:  LOL unfortunately we see more of those posts, where the MOH or the bridesmaid or the FSIL buys the same dress as the bride, than we do of these kinds of posts.


How generous of her! I second the PPs that say if you sell it, take her out for a spa day or a few dinners with the profit

@LiliKitty:  + 1 Haha yes, this is what sprung to mind when I saw the post too. I was all ready to be like “What a be-yatch…”

OP, your MOH sounds like the sweetest in the world. I agree with what PPs have suggested – don’t think about what you’re going to do with the dress for now, and just enjoy it. After the wedding, reevaluate and decide whether you want to sell, donate or do something else with it. If you do make a profit off it, I agree that it would be a really nice thing to do something special for your MOH.

@RubyLeprechaun:  Wow how awesome of her to do that! I’d prob discuss it with her before making any decisions. I do like the idea pp mentioned of possibly selling it and using the money to splurge on her a spa day. Also donating it in her name would be sweet too but I’d only do that if she agreed to it.
