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? Photo by Cooper Arthur Photography...

    Yay, I think they are cute. However, I didn't like the idea of getting robes for my girls that they will only really wear once and not again, so I got monogrammed pajama sets (:

    It's super cute but I don't think I'd end up getting it but I may change my mind. My bridal party has already gotten robes from my cousin last year so I feel its redundant and they'd just get another robe. Also, it's another expense...and we will be getting ready at my sister's most likely, I don't even know if I'm having a photographer show up at that time when we have makeup and hair being done...

    Nope, definitely not. Just one more thing to spend money on? An easy way to cut the budget back!

    I got my cousin (MOH) and I matching oversized shirts to get ready in but the morning was so crazy, we litrerally put them on for a few pictures then took them off to actually start getting ready. They are cute but not necessary. I love the pictures but wished I would have saved the money now that I see how little use we got out of them.

    It depends on where I stand with my budget. If I can find something that isn't super expensive I may go for it, but I also won't be upset if I don't get us day-of outfits.

    I plan on buying a PJ set or something for my girls, but nothing with "bridesmaid" on it. I want them to be able to wear it again!

    Yes!! I’ve always wanted to do this with my bridal party, so I’m allowing myself to splurge a bit

    Yea! I got everyone flannels and am going to request they wear black pants (sweats, leggings, ect). I am also making shirts to go underneath that say “bride” “bridesmaid” “‘maid of honor”.

    Yea. I'll probably do some matching PJ sets since robes are so overdone. I've got a while to figure it out.

    I am undecided as of right know I think it's maybe because my son will be with us so he is not left out and I am unsure what to do for him to be included. Any ideas?

    I don't see the point. Wear whatever you want. Why spend more money then you need to on an already expensive day.
