You've counted down the days, minutes, seconds, and now the moment has finally arrived: It's the morning of your wedding! There's no better way to start the big day than getting ready with your crew in the bridal suite. That also means sipping champagne and snapping plenty of getting ready photos–in matching outfits, of course.
While we do love a pretty getting ready robe, it's also nice to find something a little more unique. To help you find the perfect wedding morning ensemble for your squad, we've researched the best getting ready outfits that aren't robes. From adorable rompers to cozy pajama sets and oversized shirts, we've curated a collection of 'fits to suit any wedding party, aesthetic, and budget.
For a spring or summer wedding, sweet floral finds are the way to go. We especially love the Silk and More Notched Collar Style PJs Set and the Le Rose Gifts Satin Shirt and Shorts Set. Want something colorful and fun? Opt for The Paisley Box Tie-Dye Pajamas.

From pajama sets to rompers and jumpsuits, there are plenty of options out there when it comes to getting ready outfits that aren’t robes. When picking out the perfect matching outfit for your wedding party, it's important to opt for styles that not only reflect your aesthetic but are flattering and size-inclusive, too. After all, you'll want your crew to feel comfortable and confident while lounging in the bridal suite and taking getting ready photos. Looking to create a special keepsake for your bridal party? Consider customizing the getting ready outfits to include their initials or nickname. And if you're looking for budget-friendly options, go with vendors that offer bulk orders as buying in bulk is usually more cost-effective.

What are some alternatives to getting ready robes?
Some great alternatives to getting ready robes for your bridal party are: rompers, pajama sets, oversized shirts, flannels, jumpsuits, and dresses. However, the decision is up to you, your preference, and the vibe you're looking for!
Does the bride buy the getting ready outfit?
Although it's not required, the bride will typically cover the cost of the getting ready outfits, but it doesn't hurt to ask your bridal party, too.
