@raziel1687:  Why on earth would you think that would be tacky? That would be a kind and unselfish act on your part to suggest she wears a dress she already owns.

That’s a lovely gesture. If she’s not comfortable with it, I’m sure she’ll say something — but I bet she’ll be delighted to be able to wear something she already owns and likes.

I think that would be an awesome idea. I WISH I could have done that for a friends wedding recently, instead I had to spend $200 on a dress ill never wear again

If your bridesmaid has something in her closet already that fits with the look you’re going for, what’s the issue?  Unless for some reason she’s dead set on buying another dress for your wedding, she’ll probably love that you’re okay with her wearing something she already owns.  Not tacky at all!

Unless I’m totally misunderstanding your post…
