I’m ordering silk bridemaid robes for my bridesmaids (for getting ready photos).
Wondering if I should get them for the MOB and MOG as well?
Looking for recommendations, would you skip them, get them a different colour, or just the same as the girls?
Thanks a million!

I would first think, knowing them, would they wear them? I know both my mother and FMIL would not. They would probably want to both get ready in as private an area as possible. If you think they would wear them and really enjoy being included in this part of the day, then go for it.
If I did go for it, I’d maybe get them a different color/length..again though for me it would really depend on knowing the person and their preferences.

I don’t think my step-mom or MIL would wear a silk robe. Especially not in front of other people. They aren’t the greatest at keeping you covered. So it would be a no for me. But maybe your mother and FMIL are different. Is it something that you could picture them wearing around the house after the wedding? If not, I wouldn’t bother.

I thought about it briefly too, but I came to the same conclusion as others. They wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing them.
If yours would, then go for it. If you do, I would recommend finding some that are better at covering their bodies. I found some on etsy for my bridesmaids that are long; so their bums won’t show and have buttons in addition to a tie to keep them closed.
