I am planning to get robes.. I’m going to ask “do you guys mind wearing these for some cute pics while we are getting ready”… I don’t see why they would decline personally.. I never even though about that lol

I would’ve asked them before I ordered them.. Now they may feel obligated to dress like props for your pictures.

Will you be offended if someone says no? You can always just gift them to your friends and they can choose to wear them or not.

justcallmefierce:  I didn’t go with robes because I know one of my BMs would be uncomfortable in it (she’s very modest.)  

I’d just tell them about it in advance and guage their comfort level with it.

justcallmefierce:  I had a group message going on facebook with my 7 bridesmaids where we could discuss ideas. I just sent a message along the lines of ‘I see a lot of girls wearing these robes while getting ready and I think it makes for adorable getting ready photos’ and then I attached some photos and asked what they thought. Everyone thought they were super cute and loved the idea. If you’re close with your girls there’s no reason you can’t just ask them 🙂 it’s better to let them know in advance because my girls wanted to pack leggings/tank tops to wear underneath them.

justcallmefierce:  Then I would gift them the robe.. It kinda goes without saying you want them to wear them.

ETA: Since you don’t seem to mind if they don’t want to wear them.. Just ask what they think. You don’t need to mention you already bought them so they don’t feel bad saying no if they want to.

I didn’t ask my bridesmaids about wearing robes but I honestly don’t see what the big deal is. If a bride gave me one I would figure it’s for getting ready and would be excited to wear it!

I got one for the wedding I was in and she straight up told us that we had to wear them for pics…That was the only “gift” we got… stupid.

Last wedding I was a bridesmaid in, we were gifted robes, and we all just assumed that we were wearing them for the salon and getting ready. We all wore tights/leggings and tank tops under them.
