Coming from someone who a) looks horrible in dresses and b) has also put on weight in the last couple of years…. I would say let her keep the dress.  She is sticking within the guidelines that you gave…..

BUT…..If the dress is that horrible  (where you think it would ruin the wedding and pictures), yes, feel free to say something – as long as you say it in a positive way, so she won’t have hurt feelings.

Tell her that you really want her to love the dress and feel her best, and that it seemed liek she just settled for the first one, based on what she said.  I’d offer to go shopping with her.

Eh. I’d say since she doesn’t look bad, just not great, I’d leave it alone.It just doesn’t seem worth it to risk her feelings.

Has she seen a pic of herself in the dress? If she looks pretty bad and sees it, it may change her mind.

I wouldn’t say anything just yet, but maybe look around and if you find some potential candidates just say “hey, I saw this cute cheap dress, what do you think of it?” and get her trying on other stuff that way

Maybe you could tell her that since she’s Maid/Matron of Honor that you want her to look as special as she is to you- and that you want her to be in a nicer dress than the bridesmaids- that way it makes it more about making her happy rather than a criticism.

Maybe try to plan a trip to the mall for some girl time and casually try on dresses with her. If you both try them on it may take some of the pressure off her and she may be able to open up to trying on different styles and ideas. This way it’s not like you’re tell her that you don’t like her dress but just want to have a girl’s day of trying on dresses and stuff like that.
