Ladies, my big day is in 2 weeks and I don’t have a gettin ready outfit!


What did you all wear? And how practical was it so that you could wear it after the wedding?
I don’t want to get something that I’ll only wear once...maybe something different than the typical robe?

    You could get a button-down nightgown shirt, or just a cute pair of PJs, as long as the top buttons down. If you want something fancier, you could get a wrap dress (as long as it is a true rap and does not need to be pulled over your head).

    I just wore a dress I can pull down. Whatever you wear, wear something that you can pull off or something that buttons because you don’t want to be pulling it off your head it may mess up your hair

    I wore a “Mrs.” t-shirt and leggings. It’s not something that I would wear in public again, but I wear it around the house.

    Daughter and her bridal party wore black leggings and flannel button downs she bought for them all. They were comfortable and practical, and they've all worn their shirts many times since.

    I wore a dress I already owned. It has a pretty open neckline and it's stretchy in the middle so I was able to take it off easily without pulling it over my head. I was almost going to describe it as a beach dress; it's more of a dress than a beach cover-up. Like, I can wear it places that are not the beach, but it's easy enough to take off that I might wear it to the beach, if that makes any sense.

    Because I hate to break my own traditions, I’ll do my hair and makeup in a wrapped towel. It’s how I get ready everyday and why change it on my special day 😀

    I ironed my new last name initial into a button down I already owned. It wasn’t white or my wedding colors. My bridesmaids wore clothes they already owned. I wouldn’t stress over it.

    I wore clothes I already own and so did my bridal party. I wore a shirt with stretchy fabric and a wide neckline so I could easily take it off without messing up my hair and shorts because my wedding was in July. Button downs and my bust don't get along.

    I wore a silk pajama set that matched the ones I got for my bridesmaids. I literally wear it all the time! It has become a pajama staple for me

    Indiana bride here- I originally wanted everyone to do long plaid shirts with knee high socks (I found women's shirts in the plus size section of Maurices). I kind of wanted it to look like we were wearing an old boyfriends long button up, plus we all would wear it again. But then i decided to just go ahead and get robes for everyone to make it look more feminine since the overall theme is romantic and soft. Good thing switched because honestly was $80+ cheaper 🤮 I can’t believe I spent that much on tops originally. The robes were like $14

    I wore a white Calvin Klein romper suit. It was great because it was easy to get in and out of. It was great for photos too and I didn't care too much about getting dirty while I was getting my makeup done and stuff since my photographer took pics while I was sitting down getting my hair done and afterwards when I was putting on the wedding dress.

    I wore a “Bride” PJ set. Super comfy but still cute for photos. My mom bought them for me and I believe they came from Macy’s.

    One of my sister's-in-law got me a Bride robe from Victoria's Secret and I wore a cami, no bra and a pair of sleep shorts while getting ready. My goal was to stay as comfy as possible before my dress went on! lol


    A couple my bridesmaids wore leggings, but most of them also wore sleep shorts and a comfy shirt while getting ready. We were all about being cozy

    Getting robes is kind of a new fad, and whether bride or in the wedding party, I hate them. Mostly because everyone posts pics. And I don't like pics of me half dressed out on the web, cute or not. I wore a button down shirt with 3/4 sleeves, and dark leggings. In bridal parties, if brides want some cohesive look, I prefer when people bring their own things. Some ask for all in stripe shirts, or Hawaiian Prints, or shades of a color, and dark pants. Long summer sundresses, or loose peasant blouses and skirts, anything you do not put over your face and hair. Some depends if you will be dressing in a home, or going hotel room to salon. What is comfy round your house can be unsuitable in hotel halls and lobbies. I ignored the bride, as did 3 of 4 others, the last wedding I was in. We were on a formal, expensive Inn. And she surprised us all with babydoll pajamas, shorty tops and panties, with us on 2 floors, and some business / company retreat on those floors too. Like we were 7 year olds at a sleepover. 4 30-39 year old women, no.

    Hi! I felt exactly the same way as you, I wanted something myself and my bridesmaids could wear again... and my biggest concern was making sure it was something we could wear in public if we need to make a coffee run or run into a store for something. What I decided on was jogger sweatpants with a slightly cropped zip up hoodie to match. Bridesmaids are wearing matching blush and I am wearing white. I thought it was something super comfy and something they could wear out and about. Not to mention, I hate silk robes because they never stay closed.
