Sounds like the perfect plan to have them wear the morning of/day after 🙂 I’m sure you’ll get some great pictures of them all in their outfits!

I feel like this is very circa brittany spears’s wedding to k-fed?

 

I’d vote for the morning after!

I know personally Id rather be photographed in a dress (regardless of if I wasa matching others ) than in my sweatpants! Dresses are just much more flattering than velour sweatsuits!

If you’re still looking (for prep time, post-party, whatever), I think Victoria’s Secret has something along those lines (not sure of the color options)

How about giving them to the girls before the wedding (rehearsal dinner?) and have them wear them while they are getting ready with you? Or they would be great for a spa day with the girls.

@msjayelegee I think they morning of or day after would be much better.  Also, about where to find some suits, Juicy Couture has some and can be custom, they pretty pricey though.  I would also try places like New York and Co., Express, and Victoria’s Secret.  Good luck!

I would love to wear the track suit when I am getting ready. It’d be nice and comfy while you get hair and makeup done.  I think using it before or hanging out at the after party would be an awesome idea!

I’ll be honest. I love the idea! They did it at the Kardashian wedding, maybe not the most classy example, but the thought of taking off high heels and a tight dress and dancing in fancy sweats sounds like a dream. it is probably what most people really want to do after dessert anyway, and this gives them an excuse! If you want to do it, go for it Would you stay in your dress, or change too?

This makes a LOT more sense for them to wear while getting ready than to change into at the reception.  Especially considering you’re having a big, formal wedding.  Nothing about a velour track suit says formal.

I definitely don’t think it’s a good idea for them to change at your reception. For the morning after, perfect! It will be so nice for them to wear something comfortable and relax. Maybe get yourself a matching one? cute!

I had a velour sweatsuit for getting ready. I also used it after I changed out of my dress after the reception, since we were going to a B&B and I needed help getting out of my gown. THe bustle butons were very hard to undo. I wouldn’t have wanted to wear it at the actual reception however.

I don’t really like the idea. As a guest or bridesmaid.  Also, my SIL got us all velour jackets that matched for getting ready and I hated it for 2 reasons.  I actually REALLY hate velour. There, I said it. I think there is nothing tackier than a velour jacket, and whole suits are worse. 2) I’m 5’11” and it literally only came down to the end of my ribs.  On everyone else it came down to their pants at least! 3) it was a waste of money because I never wore it again 🙂

 

If your girls are multiple sizes it may not flatter them all.  It would be IMPOSSIBLE for you to get something to fit me… I would be ticked if I had to spend all that money on a bridesmaid dress, then, while everyone else was still in formal attire, change into a non-flattering track suit that didn’t fit right and the pants were too short.

 

What about doing flip flops?

Ok.. while it is not my style, my friend was actually in a wedding where they did this.  My friend told me that the bride and her bridesmaids all changed into velour sweatsuits about 3/4 of the way through the reception and broke out hula hoops and boas and all kinds of fun stuff.  I think it really depends on your personality- if you think people would see you do this and be like “Oh, that’s so fitting of missjayellegee” then go ahead and do it.  Especially if your BM’s are on board, and you anticipate your guests being big partyers.
