    I would prefer the navy ones for sure!  I think they’re super cute with the polka dots and is something I would wear again more than either of the corals.

    Good luck!

    Despite the fact the navy and polka dot works with your theme I prefer the Coral. It still matches but it doesn’t go overboard with the matchy matchy stuff(do your Bridesmaid or Best Man robes really need to match your wedding theme?) and they are more likely to wear it later.

    I also think the navy and polka dot looks a little manly. Not sure why. The coral is very light, pretty, and feminine.

    @KimmySumShuga:  It may just be the picture. I mean usually polka dot is pretty girly lol

    Are you wanting to surprise them with the robes? If not I would just ask them which color they like best.

    If you are going to be giving them as a surprise gift you could always say “Hey I was looking at these cute robes but Idk which one I like more.” Then let them choose which one they think looks best and go from there.

    If I had a choice between the navy one as is and the navy with added sashes I would just go with the navy as is. Keep it simple and sweet. Could you do a super swirly, feminine font for the monograms? Or could a small, simple flower or swirly design be stitched onto the robe next to the monogram?Like this for instance?

    Or maybe you could do the navy and polka dot and then get some cheap, fluffy white slippers at the dollar store for your girls to wear as well.

    Or could you do the coral with navy colored monograms?

    I love the pink coral just because it’s my favorite color though, I would probably go for the navy in your case. It fits your theme and it will probably be more of a crowd pleaser. A bright pink like that isn’t everyone’s cup o’ tea but the navy would work for all tastes.

    I got my bridesmaids robes too. I got ones that match their dresses, I figured that they could wear them while getting ready so they will already have the right colors on for make up too.

    Probably silly but..that was my thought. =]

    Love the coral!  It’s also a very flattering color for people. 🙂

    I voted for the navy.  Not only does it go with your theme, but its super cute.  If you’re worried about them looking masculine, then make sure the font and color of the monogram is more feminine.

    I love the navy ones (and was going to order that color for my bridesmaids, with the bright pink for me – I liked the fun contrast and they are both part of my wedding color scheme). I also like that the navy is a little reminscent of a man’s robe, but will definitely not look masculine on the ladies.

    That being said, if you like the pinks best, go with them. I don’t think everything has to perfectly match your theme, and the pink would provide fun contrast (as opposed to clashing).

    I say go with what you think your BMs will like and wear over and over- you say they’re girly, so maybe the coral! However, if I was given a coral robe… I would wear it the single time it was necessary for my friends wedding and then never again. Most pinks are generally just too bright and too girly for pale me, but the navy I would wear all the time! 

    I love your theme, by the way- I’ve always been wary of nautical themed things (they remind me of little kid sailor costumes/dresses), but your pics have changed my mind on the theme all together!


    Oh, last minute idea- if you want to keep the nautical theme in the robes, why not add a cute little anchor or compass rose to the monograms?
