YES. I would wear this all the time especially on an easy weekend morning.

I love the jerseys and have one for my school, but I wouldn’t wear them after the wedding. Maybe with some leggings around the house, but I don’t it’d be worth the $50. After the wedding I sold all my “bride” clothes because when would I ever wear it again? It’s a cute idea, and if you’ve got lots of money to blow it would be nice, but I don’t think they’d get much use out of it.

hjfleming2066:  These are a prop for your “getting ready” pics. They do not replace a thoughtful gift for your BM’s.

hjfleming2066:  $50 a piece?!!  Wow, it looks like a standard long-sleeve t-shirt to me, I would not pay $50 for that.  You could easily hit up a craft store and get some iron-on letters to make this a $15 a piece project.  For $15 I wouldn’t mind that it’s kind of disposable but for $50 I’d want to know my BMs are actually able to enjoy it long-term.  Also if you’re going to require that they wear it for getting-ready photos I agree with julies1949, it’s not really a gift at that point.

I would wear something like that if I was a bridesmaid and the bride wanted me to for photos, but never ever again. I have plenty of pajamas and so forth anyway.

 

I think that’s a lot of money for the use they will get.

if you’re planning on using it for getting ready….make sure it’s button down, you don’t want to be pulling a sweater or t-shirt over your hairdo!

I’m not sure how old you and your wedding party is but these look juvenile to me. Looks like something my little sister who just started college would wear with friends to a pep rally when she was still in HS and certainly not worth a whopping 50 bucks. sorry.

hjfleming2066: cute for $5 but not for $50. I wouldn’t wear it except for pictures. And only if it didn’t muss my hair and makeup.

Some people might wear them after the wedding. I wouldn’t. I have one for my sorority, and it’s fantastic, but why would I want to be labeled a bridesmaid in public after the fact?

hjfleming2066:  I love it! We have a similar idea but as wedding favours instead (small wedding < 35 guests so we’re splurging).. They’re soccer jerseys, I have the same concern that no one will wear them post-wedding but the concept of having all our guests on “our team” I absolutely adore it. We’ll have custom numbering and naming on the back and our wedding logo on the front.

Anything adorned with a wedding role is not a gift. If you want to get these for your bridesmaids to wear for pictures then that’s cool if you want to blow $50 a pop on them but they don’t replace actual gifts that will be useful to your bridesmaids outside of your wedding.

Totally not worth $50 and highly unlikely to ever be worn after the wedding. I’d go back to the drawing board.

Maybe if they have their names on them or something, rather than ‘maid of honor’ etc, but even then it’s pretty pricey for something they might not rewear. I would go with something more personal to them and get cheap tanks or something for the morning.

They are cute but if they have the labels on them they probably won’t ever get worn again. Also, if they are wearing them for getting ready they could mess up their hair when taking them off (if they are not button down).
