As a bride to be, you’ve had a lot to think about from the dress to the flowers to the seating chart—it never ends! When it comes to your bridesmaids, the checklist continues: What dress will they wear? Will it be the same dress or should you mismatch? What about their shoes? Their jewelry? You get it. For your wedding day, there’s another item to consider: a pretty robe.
Robes are not a required item for your maids, but they make for an extra special touch when you’re all gathered together and getting ready for your big day. If you’re planning on having your ceremony prep be documented, the occasion will become extra photogenic with coordinating robes for the bridal party, whether you opt for candid shots or plan a few posed together as a group. What’s more, a pretty robe makes for a thoughtful bridesmaid gift that your crew can keep and use over and over long after your big day.
Like bridesmaid dresses, there are several routes you can take with a gorgeous dressing gown. Satin, velvet or cotton are ideal fabrications weather minimal, lace-adorned or printed. Then comes color: Do you want to stick to your wedding shades? Points for consistency, if so. Maybe you want to channel your own bridal palette with hues like champagne, oyster or dusty rose. This makes for an ultra-feminine photo opp. If you’re getting married in the fall or winter, jewel tones are beautiful either as solids, color-blocked or patterned. Florals are always a popular choice, too. Even if you’re not a flower fanatic, variations run the gamut from petite blossoms to abstract prints. We’re also for channeling the vibe of your wedding theme or location: Ideas like a nautical stripe or cheerful palm print are fun and a little more unexpected.
