I feel like anything that says “bridesmaid” is essentially a fancy version of a labelmaker. I know why I’m here, and I’m so so happy for you, but I’m not going to wear this shirt or use this bag later in life fawning over my memories of being your bridesmaid. Sashes or shirts for a bachelorette party are fine as long as you don’t make people pay for them, but really I prefer dressing to theme (e.x. Bridesmaids wear LBDs, bride wears white) with something that everyone might actually want to wear again.

Is she going to continue wearing the hoodie if they get divorced? Bride or bridesmaid, those labeled clothes have a small window of time when they’re cute. Once the wedding has passed, they are less relevant and better as lounge-at-home clothes.

All of that’s cheesy to me–hoodies, bikini bottoms, slippers, robes…
But at the very least I have to say that I respect that she’s putting the hoodie to good use–better to me than someone who buys the robe JUST for the “getting ready” photo-op!

I love it all. But I am the queen of cheese, the lady of queso, the hand maiden of formage. I looove engagement swag. I’ll admit I own waaay too much of it but oh well. I’m just having fun lol.
Rofl! You go girl. I guess I’m kind of cheese-tastic too.
I confess that I have blingy “married” and “bride” panties, a rhinestone “Bride” tank top, etc. I wore them on the honeymoon but now that we’re married I only wear them at home.
I think it’s silly and fun, and Darling Husband thinks it’s cute too, so win-win.

violetcupcake: I need to.get some of those lol. I’m not making my girls wear them. But they all really want to wear team Bride shirts lol.

I don’t find them annoying, but I do think they’re tacky and personally would NEVER purchase anything like it lol

Imagine if guys wore “Hubby to be” and “team husband” shirts… it’d be funny. But yeah, NO.

I thought about getting myself a “Wifey” tank top to wear the day of for getting ready. But then I realized I probably would never wear it again after that so why spend the money? One of my good friends though does have a necklace that says “Wifey” that she wears all the time. Her husband bought it for her and it’s actually really cute. But it’s very understated and you probably couldn’t tell what it says unless you were really looking at it.
As far as the “bridesmaid” labeling goes…I hate it. Anything labeled “bridesmaid” that’s given to me goes right in the trash after the wedding.

We took our bridal party out to breakfast and to an amusement park the day after our wedding. My husband and I got Mr and Mrs shirts to wear that day. We figured we were allowed to be cheesy, and had a blast. The shirts were super soft and we wear them as pajamas or undershirts all the time. I did not buy any shirts for the rest of the bridal party. I figured I didnt want to force anyone to wear something, and it seemed like a waste of money. Surprisingly, everyone commented that they wished we got shirts for everyone. I guess I have unusually cheesy friends. (And I was 30 year old at the time, so it isnt that all my friends were goofy teenagers or something!) I think it’s better to let people have their fun! I think getting married makes people really happy, and silly clothing is just another way to celebrate.

Her hoodie is whatever (not my taste, but to each their own) but if she wants you guys to all have bridesmaid shirts than she should be the one footing the bill. I liked the idea of getting robes for my BMs for photos and lounging day of the wedding. I bought them! If she’s willing to purchase, then wear it and deal, I guess.

Yeah not a fan and neither are my bridesmaids. The only “future Mrs.” thing I’ll ever wear is my engagement ring!

I detest these. I think they are a huge waste of money.
