Every single part of a bride’s wedding day is both special and important, starting with those first flutters of excitement when you wake up, to getting ready with your bevy of girlies through to those magical I Dos. One way to really bring the #bridesquad together is with matching wedding robes. Wedding robes for the bridal party are a sure-fire way to keep everyone comfortable and looking fabulous during all the pre-wedding prep!
Not to mention, giving bridesmaids a wedding robe that’s theirs to keep can be a beautiful, unique gift to thank them for being your BFF’s and let’s face it, putting up with your “bridezillaness” over the course of the wedding planning. The robes can even be personalized with first or last names, the word “Bridesmaid” in a pretty script, or an embroidered symbol that ties into the theme of the wedding. Have a bridal squad catch-phrase or inside joke? Yep, that could go on too! For some of our favs, check out HuffPost.
What better way to kick off your special day, then to grab a coffee or mimosa, slip into a gorgeous robe and get gussied up for the best party you’ll ever throw?! Also, how easy is it to slip off a robe and slip on a dress? Pro-tip – it also keeps your make-up and hair completely intact (can you tell it’s our fav choice of wedding prep loungewear?).
Okay, now let’s talk selfies! Matching wedding robes also provide an INSTA worthy photo opportunity! Be it a selfie or professional shot, what better way to capture your squad on your big day than in coordinating robes and duck pouts? The formal photos will come later in the day, but those primping, casual photos will also be cherished for years to come – and that can be posted right away.
Wedding robes come in all patterns and fabrics, they can suit any wedding party, during any time of year. For winter weddings, choose a lengthier robe in a thick, fluffy fabric, and take some photos on a snowy front porch with mugs of cocoa in hand. For fall, grab a plaid robe, a pumpkin or two and you’re set. Bonus points for a bale of hay! For summer, choose a shorter length robe, a floral pattern, and a cooler fabric such as silk and get yourself to a beach or lake. Getting hitched in the 6ix? Think graffiti wall and white structured robes for a truly city vibe shoot.
Clearly, we are pro-robe. Whenever the wedding, whatever the colors and theme, you can never go wrong with a thoughtful gift that makes everyone feel comfortable and look gorgeous, especially on such a momentous occasion! And if that wasn’t enough, just think – those memories made that day in your robes can be relived for years to come!
