The One With The Cheap Wedding Dress - S7-E17

Question: When Monica is showing Chandler the dress, she tells him that she's booked the Swing Kings, so she got what she wanted. Why didn't she just keep the dress she wanted because she got the band for Chandler?

Answer: The first answer is 100% correct, but in S8 E1, the band they actually have at the wedding is called ‘Jungle Swing'.

Chosen answer: The woman who tried to grab Monica's gown at the wedding dress blow-out sale retaliated by booking the Swing Kings for the same day as Monica and Chandler's wedding. She would then only let Monica have the Swing Kings if Monica agreed to give up the wedding dress. Even though the woman's behavior was despicable, Monica honored the agreement to ensure that Chandler would have his favorite band at the reception - if she'd kept the dress after booking the band the other woman could well have retaliated. Monica simply found another wedding dress.
