I just assumed they wore clothes? Maybe get them button up shirts that say Mother of _____?

I can understand your mom not wanting to wear a kimono robe. I would probably find your mom and mil hoodies that say their titles on the back in rhinestones or something cute so it is still special but something they will feel comfortable in.

@aamyfisher:  Zip up hoodies would be awesome. Just avoid pullover anything’s, OP.

I’ve honestly never been in/to a wedding where the bride/BMs wear robes. I think a robe is basically like pajamas …. why would you want to be out in public in a robe?

Just wear regular clothes?

Button up shirts or shirts with V necks are good to wear so your hair doesn’t get messed up when changing.

Are you getting your hair/make up done at home or in a salon?  I assume you’re getting it done at home if you’re doing the robe thing.  I agree with the other posters to get a shirt or sweater with mother of the bride and mother of the grrom on them.

If you are getting hair/makeup done at a salon, I’d wear regular clothes to the salon and put the robes on after when you get home.  If that’s the case, I wouldn’t get the moms anything as I assume the mother of the groom would be getting ready in the same place as the groom.

I have this exact same question, so I’m bringing it back to life!

I’m getting robes for my 3 bridesmaids and the groom’s older sister, but should I get something for the mothers? Any moms here wish they would have been included in the robes? I want this to be a surprise, so I can’t really just flat out ask them.
