@Razzmatazz:  Personally, I don’t think I would ever wear the button-down again and I would prefer the monogrammed zip-up. Have you considered monogrammed robes? That is definitely something that could be used again!

@Razzmatazz:  I think those are cute but I wouldn’t really see it as a gift- more of a photo opp.

Are your friends really into monograms? I have a bag monogrammed – but that’s it. I don’t wear anything else that’s monogrammed, and I probably wouldn’t.

I wouldn’t wear monogrammed anything after the wedding, so to me it is more of a prop for your wedding pics than a gift.

A quarter zip is not a good idea for women who then have to pull it up over their hairdo and possibly makeup.

I guess it depends on your friends….I’m not a monogram fan in general.  I’d see it as a photo op.

Only issue with sweatshirt is that its half zip and if the girls get hair/makeup done in it, how do you get it off without messing up hair/face?

Sweatshirt over button down for sure, I’d wear it at least at home. Robes are always good too, and better monogrammed than sweatshirts.

 

Agree with @julies1949 that you don’t want to give them anything they have to pull over their heads.
