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...

    Yes! I ended up finding plain, solid color robes on Amazon for about 13 a piece. It looked super cute in photos! They wore the robes over whatever they felt comfortable in though Smiley smile

    We did robes. We are all pretty comfortable around each other but if you have a shy bridesmaid, I think matching pajama sets might be better. We were flashing each other and our photographer a lot being that we didn’t want to wear bras because of the lines on our low back dresses lol

    Yes. I found inexpensive robes that I liked that didn't say bride or bridesmaid so they could be worn again if anyone so chose. I know myself and my MOH still wear ours.

    I ordered some nice cotton and lace robes from Etsy and made the name decals with a Cricut to iron on.

    Yay--doing it as part of my BM thank you gifts. I'm gifting a robe and tote bag, and I'll put a thank you card in each of the bags. Then I'm paying for them to get their makeup done :-)

    I love getting ready outfits! They're so fun and look cute in photos. I got my bridesmaids all matching button-up shirts with their monogram on it and matching leggings in my wedding colors. I got myself the same outfit, but a white shirt and printed leggings. We looked cute and were comfy! I'm all about the YEA on special getting ready outfits Smiley smile

    Nay. I let them wear what they wanted. We didn’t do photos in out “getting ready outfits”. I don’t need picture of my friends in their PJs. I can do that at home for free.

    I wore a pair of black yoga pants that said "bride" on the right calf, and a purple shirt that said "sorry for what I said before coffee"

    This is one we're going to skip--it's too complicated once you have mixed-gender parties. We are thinking about matching, customized denim jackets for the party, though--it's gender-neutral, and both FW and I are known for wearing a lot of them (I'm even wearing one in my pic on here lol)
