These days, bridesmaid robes are just as much of a wedding rite of passage as a favour for your guests. While walking down the aisle, saying your vows and enjoying a delicious wedding breakfast are all important parts of any big day, getting ready on your wedding morning is a time you’ll remember forever. Before you put on your wedding dress and fix that wedding makeup in place, you’ll enjoy a few irreplaceable hours with your bridesmaids: bonding, drinking Champagne and Prosecco and relaxing.
If you didn’t gift them with bridesmaid proposal gifts pre-wedding, bridesmaid robes and pyjama sets are something your bridal party can treasure (and wear) forever. They’re also practical, since you can wear them while getting your hair and makeup done, sans any worry of having to pull clothing over your head and ruining the finished look.
So, where can you buy the best bride and bridesmaid robes and dressing gowns? Etsy boasts a whole plethora of bridal party robes – many of which can be personalised – from small and independent sellers. And what better time to support small businesses? These silk bridesmaid robes are available in an array of hues and can be personalised on the back. The bride can wear white or ivory while her bridesmaids can wear a colour, and they’re available in lots of different sizes.
