To tell this woman to f off and buy her own dress?

I've worked with the same women "Wendy" for around 3 years now, and I am the same age as her daughter "Amelia".

Today Wendy asks me as if it would be possible for me to bring in my wedding dress to work for Amelia to borrow for her wedding. She explained that they were both struggling financially and that Wendy herself was in debt.

My DH has a good job and earns well and we were able to afford to have a lovely wedding and I was able to afford the dress that I wanted. Neither Wendy or Amelia were invited to the wedding, however I have been told by Wendy that they were both looking at the wedding photos on Facebook and how Amelia would love to have the same dress.

I am being a bitch if I refuse? My dress is so special to me and I don't want just anyone wearing it.

This is why I love Mumsnet.

I haven't managed to read the whole thread so apologies if this has been raised.

It costs the best part of £200 to dryclean a wedding dress. You'd think she'd rather use that to buy her own dress than on cleaning one she'd scrounged? Which would indicate no intention to have it cleaned afterwards.

I feel for the groom.

OP YANBU. They were cheeky in the first place and A's behaviour since is appalling.

'no, i don't feel comfortable with that'. or just 'no'.
