Do you have a special 'getting ready' outfit planned for you or your whole wedding crew? Are you splurging on matching robes, shirts, or PJs for all of your bridesmaids? Or something bridal just for you?

Will you wear a special 'getting ready' outfit? Yea or nay?

    Nay. They're cute but also not necessary

    I plan to do something for all the ladies to lounge and get ready in. I need help figuring out what to get though. There are lots of vendors that sell the stuff, but a lot of it seems cheap. I want to make sure I get the ladies something of quality that they will wear/use again. Any suggestions?

    No - I hate getting this stuff as a BM. I can dress myself, thanks.

    Not for me. I figure everyone will decide what they are most comfortable in. It’s not an area worth spending money on for me.

    Nope! Every getting ready outfit I’ve been given as a bridesmaid has ended up in the trash afterwards. Just told my girls to be comfortable.

    I'm still undecided about this. It seems to be a nice idea, but I feel like there are so many expenses already.

    I was thinking about it but I'm actually on the fence. I might just end up having them wear whatever they want that they're comfortable in.

    Yea!! However, I will be the only one wearing something that says Bride/Mrs. Whatever as it's a sentimental item for me on our wedding day. My bridal party will wear something coordinated (I'm still working on what) but their items will be in a theme color/pattern with the first letter of their first name on the garment.

    Yes! I loved having matching robes for all my girls including the moms and grandma. It just looked great on pics.

    Yay! I already ordered the robes for girls. Plan on buying pj for them to wear also. I am going to leave it for them to decide but for my own daughters it is a must.

    I'm still deciding if I want to buy getting ready outfits for my girls, but I got us all fuzzy socks in our favorite colors that everyone will wear while getting ready and then I'll tell them what to wear (oversized shirt with black leggings or something like that).

    Nay. Unless I end up making them myself (which I might do), it's an unnecessary expense.

    I think so! I was going to get my 4 bridesmaids a robe or some comfortable matching pajamas - either with their names or nothing on it that way they don't have useless stuff with "bridesmaid" all over it lol. I want to get their opinions on what they'd like though!

    Yea! I look the look and idea of getting ready outfits. I'm thinking for mine, either oversized plaid button downs or boat neck sweatshirts, so they are easy to get over our heads.
