    I would only be concerned about maybe something getting spilled on it. Other than that, she bought the dress and she should be able to wear it to whatever she wants! It’s pretty awesome she likes the dress you chose enough to wear it elsewhere!

    In all honesty, I’d be seeing spilling drinks in my head all night while she is at the event, until I know it is back home in safe condition. 🙂  Moreso, I’d be happy that she likes the dress that much!

    nah, it’s fine – i wouldn’t care. if she wanted to wear it to like… my brother’s wedding that might be weird, but i don’t think anyone would connect it anyways. i’d take it as a compliment since she’s able to rewear it!

    I wouldn’t have a problem with it at all. If she paid for it, she should be able to wear it whenever she wants. I’m sure she knows well enough to not throw red wine on herself so I doubt theres an issue. As long as the event is atleast a few weeks before your wedding (enough time to get it cleaned if need be), then abso-freakin-lutely!

    As long as there’s enough time between events to have it cleaned, or possibly reordered, I’d be ok with it.  I might secretly hope that she doesn’t post a million pictures of herself wearing it on facebook…

    Hey, it’ll be one of the few times a bridesmaid actually will get to wear the dress more than once. I’d totally be okay with it!

    I would be ecstatic that she liked it enough to wear it more than once. She is already getting her use out of it pre wedding. Plus if she wears it and figures out something rubs wrong or fits funny she will be able to correct it and be the best looking, happiest bridesmaid around!

    My Maid/Matron of Honor wore a dress that she had previously worn as Maid/Matron of Honor in a different wedding.  (I had no other female attendants, so she didn’t need to match anyone.)  I was thrilled that she could use a dress she already owned, and would not have to buy a new one.

    She paid for it so it is hers!

    But I would just remind her to be extra careful! =)

    Of course! It is so rare to get a chance to wear a bridesmaids dress again so I’d be excited that she wanted to wear it more than once. And if she paid for the dress it’s her to do with what she pleases!

    I would only be worried that something would happen to the dress, but that rarely happens.  It’s awesome she can use it again.

    I think it depends on the style of the dress. I know I’m asking my girls to wear black and god only knows if the color will change when it’s being cleaned. I would definitely not want her wearing the dress before the wedding if there was any chance of something happening to it while she was wearing it or while it was being cleaned. It’s fantastic she wants to wear it again, but for me the risk would be too high.

    I would be happy that she likes it enough to wear it somewhere!

    I’d be concerned about spilled drinks or getting it messed up, but that’s what a dry cleaner’s is for.
