Definitely a nice gesture. My only problem, were I to do it, is my mom might be more worried about getting a less expensive dress that she might not be as happy with. As long as that wouldn’t be an issue for you, I think it’d be a very nice thing to do.

I wouldn’t pay for your MoH’s dress unless you don’t have any other BM’s. It could cause resentment if the other girls found out. Just my opinion tho, some people may look at it differently. I guess it depends on whether you have her doing a lot to help you. My BM’s are all Out of Town, so none are helping with much of anything. If she’s doing WAY more than they are to help, maybe it’d be okay? Even then I think it’d be better to just give her a better present. People get offended too easily!

I’m thinking of buying my mom’s dress (or at least paying for part of it, since the one she really wants is $1300!) so that she can have her "dream dress" for my wedding. She and my father had a very simple, 1970s courthouse wedding, so she never had the beautiful gown and exciting dress shopping experience. I’d love to be able to give her the Rina dress that she fell in love with.

Long story short, I don’t think it’s an odd thing to do at all! It’s very sweet!
