She just asked me if it was okay if she could wear her Bridesmaid or Best Man dress as her wedding dress in her wedding in two weeks.
At first I was shocked, but then I realized its only a dress. Plus it would help her with her budget. You see she just got engaged a few months ago and is getting married very fast. So not enough time to save for another dress.
So I figured why not. At first though I was like, I only want pics of the dresses in my wedding, not another wedding. But I dont want to be an unreasonable bride or friend.
Though I did tell her to please be careful with the dress. She said she definitely will.
Just wondering if Im sane for thinking its okay? Or would you have said no way to her??

I say why not. It would be great if she could add a sash or a pretty headpiece and make it a little different from your wedding day.

I think that is great that you said “yes”! Brides are always saying how they want to pick Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses that they can wear again around here, so the fact that she’s getting extra use out of it is awesome!

Very kind of you! Are your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses white?

This is the dress, but in the color Truffle. A dark rich chocolate brown, kind of like the color in the dress to the right.

I think that you made the right decision!
First of all, this is such an honor – and it’s a public statement that you have great taste!!! Second, I think it’s a super awesome way to help with her budget!
I think you made a really great decision and that you have a really great friend since she offered to ask beforehand. You rock!

That was sweet of you. Most of the time bridesmaids don’t get to use the dress for more than one day, so it’s kind of nice she gets to use it again.

@Earlybride: I think its fine, but I suspect it doesn’t look like a traditional wedding dress. If she wanted to buy a wedding dress to wear as a Bridesmaid or Best Man, that would be weird. But wearing a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress as a bride isn’t.

That’s awesome that she is actually getting use out of a bridesmaid dress!

I would take it as a huge compliment (if you picked out the dresses). Definitely a yes!
