I think it’s awesome. $750 is a lot of money to me… but if they are financially okay to do it, why not?

A little weird, but definitely worth the weird. 🙂 Take it and be happy! And write them a heck of a thank you note, haha.

Is it unusual? Definitely. But as long as you’re cool with it– yay! My boss would totally do something like this. I think every relationship is different but I work in a tiny office with a very generous boss who treats me like his daughter. Yay for you!

Woohoo!  That’s awesome!  Think of it as a wedding gift.  My coworkers usually band together for a Bed Bath and Beyond gift card.  I say this is better.  My sisters are giving me a photographer that I love.  I’m very appreciative of that!

I think that is so great! My Fiance is close to his boss and she and her husband are invited to our wedding. I don’t know your relationship with your boss, but he seems to have enough of a relationship where he knows how special the wedding dress is to you.

I say your gratefully accept the gift and then make sure you let him and his wife know how thankful you are to him.

Its weird in the sense that it doesn’t happen often (or maybe ever!) but I think that’s so awesome! Congrats!

I had a boss once (an older woman) and I used to go back and forth between brown and blonde hair. She told me once when I asked that she prefered the blonde, and I was like, yea, but it’s pricey to upkeep, etc. She wrote me a check for the cost of a full highlight and gave it to me. We had more than a boss/worker relationship- we genuinely liked each other.

I see your situation being like that. It’s a lovely gift!!!!!!!

That is incredibly sweet!  I had a relative offer to pay for my dress & I started balling, so I totally understand being overwhelmed with emotion!

It is just such a thoughtful thing & he clearly thought through it since he said discussed it with his wife & came out of nowhere with the offer.  Awww…how lovely!  I’m glad you have such a thoughtful person in your life!!
