    Ooooh one of those super big cozy terry robes with my initial/initials embroidered on the pocket would be AWESOME! My fave spa has amazing robes and I want one soooo bad. They sell them but they’re like $200 each 🙁

    Not for me.

    I’d wear it the day of if it’s for a cute photo-op or whatnot, but I’d never use it again. I never wear one. If I’m staying over someone’s house for the night, I have my standard light, long button-down shirt.

    I love bathrobes, so I would love this gift.  I think you know your girls best.  Some women don’t like/wear robes, and some do.

    I would not want a robe that said “Bridesmaid” on it, just for the record.  I could deal with my initials or my name being embroidered on it (though that wouldn’t be my preference; a “plain” nice robe would be perfect) – but I wouldn’t want anything that made the robe specific to just the wedding day, like my wedding title, or the wedding date, or the bride & groom’s names, etc.

    I love robes, the big fuzzy white spa ones, or silk, as long as it’s not personalized- like Ms Bookworm said.

    @Ms Bookworm:  +1!

    I think one in your wedding colors would be a nice reference to the big day without being obvious. I’ve been trying to find a cute lightweight robe for a while and I would love it if someone gave me one!

    I hope so! I gave out robes (waffle weave style) with the girls first name and initial embroidered on it. The only thing wedding-y about them is they are pink, which was one of our wedding colors. I thought it was something they may be able to use after the wedding. I love bathrobes, so I would def use it!

    I dont use bathrobes, so I probably wouldn’t use it again after the wedding day.

    I love robes. The fluffier and softer, the better. I’m going to echo and say sure, as long as it’s not monogrammed with the bride and groom’s information!

    I love monogrammed stuff, so I would like it personalized but I know not everyone does. You have to make your best guess with what you know about your girls.
