ak2016:  I usually wear a button up or something easy to take off so I don’t ruin my hair. Is it possible to give them at the rehearsal dinner so that it is a nice surprise, but they are prepared.

You can always do what I do – ask for their sizes for bridesmaids robes but don’t give them the robes until the night before or the morning of. They’ll be prepared to wear robes but won’t know how cute they are 🙂

Rehearsal dinner is when you traditionally give your bridal party their gifts, so make sure to give it to them in advance. Before that (before your wedding weekend) give them a head’s up that you’ll have something for them to wear while they get ready. You can even say you’ll have a robe, and it will still be a surprise about what it looks like. Most brides give the bridesmaids something to wear, so it’s expected and you’re not ruining the surprise by letting them know.

I’d exchange them. Robes are just a photo prop – button up tops for getting makeup and hair done are so much easier and more comfortable. Especially if you haven’t given it already, toss the idea and let them wear something they’ll be comfortable in.

ak2016:  You might want to give the gifts earlier – what are they going to do with the gifts at the wedding? They will be in photos, dancing, eating, etc. Very impractical.

I don’t like the robes, they’re too photo-proppy for me. I wore a zip up sweater and my girls wore buttonups, just whatever we had laying around.

I got my bridesmaids robes as well, but it was in addition to the gifts I gave them at the rehearsal dinner. I had the robes at our getting ready location the day of the wedding and the bridesmaids just put them on for some photos, after their hair and makeup was already done. That’s really all I wanted, some cute photos of us all in robes.

ak2016:  Just tell them you got them something to wear for getting ready, but feel free to bring something to wear underneath if they like.

I don’t care if it’s pinteresty, I got myself and my bridesmaids robes and I love the getting ready photos.
