I think that BOTH should have come out of your monthly allowances.  Technically, he didn’t HAVE to be in the wedding and rent a tux.  If the whole point of this allowance thing is so that you guys save as much as possible by limiting the amount you spend on things that aren’t “necessities,” then neither of these purchases are necessities.  Thus, if the tux was exempt from the allowance, so should a new dress be. 

But just ask yourself – what’s more important?  Buying a new dress, even if it comes out of savings, or wearing something that you already have and keeping that saves in there for another purchase in the future?  I’m assuming you’re saving up for something – a house? kids? etc.  If you don’t “need” the dress and just want it, either find a dress on sale or just wear something you already have.

I don’t think you should get a new dress – unless you are a bridesmaid. 

You said you don’t need one, and this isn’t something that he’s keeping or probably even wanted. 

I think that allowances is a great idea, it keeps spending in check so that one or the other doesn’t blindside with a huge bill or whatever.
