You've counted down the days, minutes, seconds, and now the moment has finally arrived: It's the morning of your wedding! You can't wait to get this day underway and, as many wedding days begin, yours will start in your bridal suite where you'll get ready with your girls while sipping champagne and snapping plenty of pics. You know what would make those getting ready photos even better? Matching getting ready outfits for you and your bridesmaids.

Just think about how cute you and your girls will look, huddled together in your pre-wedding outfits! But with so many bridal parties opting for getting ready robes, it might seem if variations on those frilly, floral robes are the only options out there. While we do love a pretty posy robe (especially because your bridesmaids can definitely wear it again), with so many brides buying matching getting ready robes for themselves and their bridesmaids, we can understand if you're on the hunt for something a little more unique. That's why we put together this collection of getting ready outfits that aren't robes. Here, you'll find an array of getting ready outfits fit to suit any bridal party, no matter your bridesmaids' personalities or your wedding theme, and they'll all definitely stand out in the sea of robes on your Instagram feed.

Here, the best robe alternatives for your bridesmaids and maybe even for you too!
