    @TwoStatesBride:  I think you have to ask your girls if they’d feel comfortable sitting in leggings and robes at the salon.  I personally wouldn’t mind at all (it sounds super comfy), but some other girls might.  Otherwise I love the idea of pretty floral robes, but I’m probably biased because it’s something I would definitely use again.

    Maybe make a poll and see if the ladies here would be willing to go to the salon in a robe with leggings?

    @TwoStatesBride:  I’d be thrilled if I got both of those items as a Bridesmaid or Best Man (I love wearing leggings)!  Even if one of your girls doesn’t want to wear a robe at the salon, she can still put the leggings on with a long button up shirt or wear a tank top underneath.

    @TwoStatesBride:  I really love the floral robe trend, but you’re right- it doesn’t make a ton of sense if you’re not going to be getting ready at the hotel together. I mean, it’s still a lovely gift but maybe the money is better spent on something else? Personally- I would wear leggings and a robe if the Bride asked me to, but I would think it was weird.

    I love the idea of floral robes, they sound so cute… but not to wear in an open salon. Maybe you could get them all “bridesmaids” tank tops or a matching shirt they could wear without feeling awkward and they could take off easy without messing up their hair? If I got a robe I would love it as a present (I wear my bathrobe around the house all the time :p) but I wouldn’t necessarily want to wear it to a salon, even with leggings.

    @TwoStatesBride:  I personally would not want to hang out in a salon in a robe. Leggings or not, I would not want to be in public like that. A button down shirt and leggings, fine, but not a robe.

    Also, please keep in mind that if you are having them wear the robes to get ready in, this is not part of the gift for them. Anything you require them to wear or anything to use for the wedding, is not a gift.

    I bought my girls really cute strapless dresses at Old Navy to wear. They cost $20 each and I thought they would be fitting to wear to a salon to get their hair done. My sister who is the most picky person ever said she liked it so thats a winner.

    I thought the robes were cute but personally they don’t make sense if you are getting ready in a salon.

    Could you give it to them and they could wear it at your bachelorette shindig? That is, if you are having a sleepover.
