Bridesmaids Floral Robes - yay or nay?

Katlyn, on June 15, 2017 at 5:43 PM Posted in Community Conversations 0 21

I was wondering if anyone had experience with getting or giving cotton bridesmaid robes for the morning of the wedding for everyone to get ready in. I have always loved the look of it, but I worry that a) they won't be comfortable (because most are one size fits all and not soft cotton) or b) they'll just dislike them completely. Has anyone given these as gifts? If so where did you buy them from? TIA!

    As long as you know it doesn't really count as their thank you gift.

    The robes are more of a prop for photos rather than something they are likely to use in the future.

    If your budget allows for that then why not?

    Yay. Although I only use the one I was given because it doesn't say "bridesmaid" on it.

    Although with "one size fits all" take a good look at your BP and make sure one size fits all is actually a reasonable term- I can't imagine anything more humiliating than being heavily photographed in an ill fitted robe when everyone else's fit a certain way (I say as a plus size girl myself). Just be mindful when ordering

    Find ones in Etsy that aren't "one size fits all".

    And these are not considered gifts. These are props for photos, so make sure this isn't the only thing you get them.

    I used finekreations on Etsy. Very soft and multi sized.

    Definitely get some! They will look great in photos and everyone will be able to use them after the wedding too! I'm buying my girls some for the big day, doing all floral but they will be in spring colors, and I'll be in white!

    I am getting robes, I am getting them from robemart. I really like the look of the waffle robes with monograms.

    I actually found my girls floral robes at target! I spent so much time searching online and was also worried about sizes. Took a trip to target during a work lunch, and to my surprise floral satin robes! XS-XL categorized by Xs/S, M/L, L/Xl. This was SOOO much easier than worrying about ordering someone a specific size. They ranged around $25 each in price.

    I bought silk floral robes from macys. They are sized, have pockets (everything is better with pockets), and I could use coupons!

    I got them for my girls. There were 5 or 6 different sizes to choose from, so definitely find something that isn't one size fits all. Also, be fine with them not wearing them if they don't want to. Most of my girls liked and wore them, but a couple just put them on for a few photos and wore their own attire to get ready in. I considered mine a photo prop that they kept rather than a gift, if that makes sense.

    I got my girls floral print short set pj's . I didn't plan on doing it but when I went into Kohl's they were on clearance for $5.00 so I couldn't pass it up.

    Bought mine on eBay. Very cheap, one size fits all, and floral. Mainly for pictures and to not spill anything on their dress while getting ready but a very unnecessary expense I made necessary.

    We did not! Instead we actually used guys white undershirts that we would be able to cut off. It has since become a huge joke about that between us. So now I'm looking for someone who can make us white shirts with our goofy saying on it! It's one of the many stories we won't forget from that day!!!

    I just got robes from Walmart! Then I went to a place that prints on shirts! They were cheap, comfy and will stay shut when you tie them! Smiley winking Etsy is also a good idea!!

    I had tank tops made that say "Sparkle and Shine it's wedding time" on the front. And they will wear with black leggings the morning of Smiley smile and mine says "Mrs. Scott"

    I love the idea of this too! I was in a wedding where we did it and I loved it but haven't used it since. I was considering doing monogrammed zip up hoodies (which I know they would use) instead but can't decide!!
