Personally I’m not a fan of that idea.  I think it would be great for them to maybe change into that outfit (if they wanted to) after the reception is over if you guys plan on after-partying.  I guess it depends on how formal your wedding is, but honestly if I was your bridesmaid, I would feel awkward wearing a velour pantsuit at your wedding reception.  Will your photographer still be there at that time?  Would you really want your pictures of your reception to have your bridesmaids in velour sweatpants?

I kind of agree with Tulip, I’m not a huge fan of the idea πŸ™

I personally think it would be strange–your BMs would change into sweats, but everyone else at the reception would still be in formal wear? I think it would look weird, IMO. I agree with the idea of giving them the sweats to change into after the reception is over, or maybe before the wedding so they can wear them while they get ready and you’ll still get cute photos of them.

I’m not a fan either. I think if you are having a large formal wedding, sweatpants are 100% not appropriate. I would be upset if I was having a backyard BBQ wedding and people wore sweatpants. I just am thinking of how many posts people write about how offended that they were when people wore jeans to their wedding.

Try asking around to some guests and think of yourself as a guests and how you would feel if you were dressed up and the bridal party wore sweatpants. I would still give them as a gift and they can wear them to the afterparty or morning after.

I’m also not a fan of this idea.  If you really want to get your BMs these sweatsuits, they can wear them to the afterparty or getting ready in the morning or something.

I think it could be cute as a going away outfit for the bridesmaids and for an afterparty but at the wedding itself, no way.

I think it’d be a cute thing to wear to get ready and if they want then they can get changed into them when they make their ways home or go to the after party. But I personally think that at the wedding it would look very strange and potentially make some people feel uncomfortable. 
Also, a Bridesmaid or Best Man suggested it? That strikes me as being weird. But it’s sweet of her to be thinking of ways to help!

Well, it’s your wedding, but if I were one of your bridesmaids, I wouldn’t want to change into a velour track suit for it… I’d be a little embarrassed, and as a guest I would think it was pretty weird. But people might find something to judge no matter what you do, so if it’s just your dream to have your bridesmaids in sweatpants, go for it. πŸ˜‰

Well, on one hand, it’s your wedding, so you can do whatever you want.

But on the other hand, if I was one of your bridemaids, I would hate that idea. I wouldn’t want to be stuck in a velour sweatsuit while everyone else was dressed to the nines.

I’m not a fan of the idea but if you’re looking for inspiration I believe they did this exact idea at Kim Kardashian’s wedding reception. The sweatsuits were even purple. If you google it I bet you can find photos.
