I was recently a BM in a friend's wedding. Long story short, she asked me last minute and I had a great time being in her WP. MOB took care of the dress, which wasn't necessary at all, but now I understand why.
The wedding was a month and a half ago, and friend is a OMH and happy. I get a letter in the mail from the MOB, thanking me for being a good friend and yaddayadda being in the WP. Enclosed is a check and the letter explains that the other BMs received some money to cover expenses for the trip (it was DW) and the dress. Since they bought the dress for me already, it was the difference she would have given me.
Do I write MOB a thank you? I would have never known about the other girls' getting money as I'm not close with them. I don't see MOB as she doesn't live local, so I can't give her a verbal thank you. I don't want to cash the check without giving thanks if that's what I should do (and I feel as I should, but then that's thanking a thank you and that sounds a bit redundant). I talk to OMH friend a lot but don't see her often; I didn't tell her that I received the check from her mom. WWYD?
