I bought these for my bridesmaids as part of their gift bags and they all loved them.  they are super good quality and I loved the colors and pattern.

Pretty sure I’m in the minority here, but I would actually love a monogrammed robe and I would absolutely consider that a gift, whether the bride asked me to wear it on the day of or not. I think anything personalized/luxurious like that is a very nice gift (i.e. I’d never spend the money on a monogrammed robe just for myself but a gift would be great!) 

But again, I’m in the minority. I am getting my BMs earrings as their gift that they can wear on the wedding day, but they are not so formal/matchy that they’d never be able to wear them again. I got them custom made for each girl from Etsy and I never really understood why something you wear on the day of couldn’t be a gift, too.

Do they make for cute pictures? Sure.

Are they overdone and cheesy for grown women? Yep.

I’m not one to love matching or cheesy bridesmaids things, but i LOVE the robe I got from a friend’s wedding a few months ago.  It’s light and airy, perfect for the summer versus the only other robe I have which is fleece and hot as hell in August.  Like others said don’t get ones that say bridesmaid.  The one i got is navy blue with a cool vintage floral print

Who cares what other people think about the robes.  They are just robes.  Do what makes you happy.

futuremrshaines :  Hi! I have ordered these for myself and my bridesmaids – I’m actually not having getting ready photographs, but thought they’d be really practical for getting ready so as not to mess up hair and makeup when getting changed into our dresses later. I chose not to personalise theirs to increase the chances of them wearing them again after the wedding, but I did personalise mine with my new married name and thought it would make a cute addition to my honeymoon wardrobe! Plus a summer robe would be useful as the only other robe I have is a very thick fleece full length one. Anyway, I’ve received an email from customer services today stating that the size I had ordered for myself was out of stock. Looking at the size guide, there doesn’t seem to be too much difference between the two sizes (S/M, L/XL), except one is a little longer than the other. What was your experience of the sizing?

busyhbee :  People on this site get a little crazy about robes.  my sister gave us beautiful robes for getting ready and I wear mine all the time.  Plus they were really fun for getting ready!

I personally am not a fan; I think they’re a kind of overdone at this point and an unnecessary expense. But that’s just my opinion, and I’m not even having a bridal party. If you like them and think your bridesmaids would, too, then go for it!
