I don’t think offering to pay for your BM’s dresses (or contributing toward them) is offensive at all.  I think it’s a great gesture.  Even if they can afford it, it’s not like anyone gets exciting aobut shelling out to buy a dress someone else picked out.  And if you’re letting them pick the cut, a gift certificate is a good way to go.

I don’t think this would be strange or offensive.  I think they might appreciate this nice gesture, helping them out with the costs of being a Bridesmaid or Best Man.  I was in a wedding where the bride offered to pay for our dresses and it was great.

Not offensive.  Could you present it to them as a gift during a little Bm get together?  You can really say this is a thank you gift for being so supportive of your day.

I think it’s awesome!!!

Personally, I took care of my ‘maids dresses, and they LOOOVVVED that. They all expect to pay out the caboodle for their dresses anyways, so it’s a lovely offset, especially since they’re traveling. You’re so considerate!

Not offensive – great idea!  My sister is a Bridesmaid or Best Man in a wedding this year and the bride gave them 100 gift cards towards JCrew (where they purchased the dresses).  She greatly appreciated the gesture, and I think that most BMs would, too!

I don’t think it’s strange, I think it’s really nice of you and they are sure to love you for it!
