Are you friends with your BM’s friend? Very odd thing to do. Probably your BM’s who are being asked are even more annoyed. I mean, I guess maybe not technically wrong, but I understand feeling annoyed. Its just a very weird thing to do. Maybe it is so annoying because they were gifts, meant to be worn on your special day then on occasions afterwards, when they would still have that special conotation. Maybe it feels so weird because now they will be associated with someone else’s wedding?

I’m a little flabergasted, actually, it is so weird. I totaly understand the need to save money right now, but there are so many easy alternatives without being so … weird!

I’d personally be really upset. That is incosiderate and completely rude. I say, if they are going to do that then someone needs to pay you back for those dresses.  You bought them to be used for YOUR wedding – not some other girls.

It sounds like she really should be asking you, not the other bridesmaid!  If she did this, would you be inclined to say yes?  Maybe suggest selling them to her at a discount?  Just an idea!

I don’t know, I personally think it’s pretty weird and I get where you’re coming from.  But my Maid/Matron of Honor had suggested that she wished she hadn’t donated it b/c she would suggest I use the dress she wore (b/c it matched my colors) in another wedding of someone I barely know.  And she even said that the other bride thought I should try to borrow everyone else’s dress rather than have my Bridal Party buy new ones.  It was kind of a non-issue b/c my Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t even have the dress to show me (and it was way more expensive than I’d make my other Bridal Party members buy), but even though I thought it sounded really strange apparently neither she nor her friend thought it was.  I jsut thought I’d put this out  tehre as another viewpoint…even though I’m with you on feeling I’d be annoyed and uncomfortable as well.
