I got married in May. The bridesmaid dresses I found were online so before ordering them, I contacted all the bridesmaids to confirm the price was alrightEvery tones said it was fine anod they would pay me back. However, the wedding was 8 months ago and one girl still hasn’t paid me back. She just recently got engaged and has asked me to the the Maid/Matron of Honor. She picked out the dress and asked me if the price is ok. I don’t think it’s fair that I should have to pay for the dress when she still owes me for hers! What should I do?

Talk to her and explain the situation. It probably slipped her mind so reminding her is all you can do.

I agree, talk to her. I’m sure she just forgot. Instead of paying you for it, maybe she can just cover the cost of yours.

Is there a difference in price? If her’s is more expensive than the one you bought for your wedding, tell her that you will gladly pay the difference between the two dresses. If her’s is less expensive, you might suggest that she pay for it in leiu of paying back for the dress you bought her for your wedding.

Yeah I would just casually say “oh since its 200 and mine was 180, I’ll give you the 20 dollars” or whatever. Or hers is less expensive and you feel odd asking for money I would just make a casual joke like oh well I guess we can pay for each others right? and remind her she hasn’t paid you. That’s rude. Even if she gets offended who cares since she was so rude to not pay.

@kel1484: I agree. Making a casual convo out of it is the least awkward way to deal with it.
