    So I hate button down PJs lol. I actually need a new light robe so I voted robe. I’ve never gotten one as a bridesmaid gift so I’d love it!

    My sister got gray robes, but they were so silky and short that we had to wear clothes under them. Didn’t really work then the belt slipped off and I haven’t used it since for that reason. 

    Mai I voted pjs. I love the robe concept… just haven’t seen it work out.

    I got lacey robes but plain ones without any “bridesmaid” wording on them so my BMs can use them again 😊

    My friend got me a cute satin robe when I was in her wedding, I never wore it again. As PP mentioned, it was way too short and slipped, it was perfect for a few pics though. The only robe I would personally wear around the house and getting ready is one that would be in a hotel… so basically a giant towel and not attractive for photos.

    id love pajamas! You could probably get something light weight that people would wear again, as opposed to like typical flannel jammies

    Okay so I realize that this is a “unique” idea and me and my friends are weirdos, but we have an inside joke about “moo moos” (old lady night gowns). For my best friend’s wedding, we went to Walmart the night before and we all bought moo moos off the clearance rack. No one was allowed to choose their own moo moo, you had to wear the one the Bride chose for you no matter how embarrassing.

    We all slept in the moo moos and wore them while we got ready the next morning. The getting ready photos are absolutely hysterical. We forgot how silly we looked and were so focused on getting ready.

     

    Basically, pick something that means a lot and maybe your girls will get a kick out of. It really made the day for us.

    kgr9 :  that sounds awesome!

    We didn’t do this, mostly because we were going out to get our hair done. But if I had, I would’ve bought everybody coordinating pyjamas but in a style that the individual wanted. VS do their ‘supersoft’ sleepshirt, shorts set and long set which would’ve all ‘matched’ so that would’ve been the route I went down.

    I’m not a fan of the monogrammed robes.  They look great in pictures but then they aren’t really cofortable and I usually throw mine in a pile of clothes to donate.  So if you do get robes, don’t monogram.  I like button down shirts and they’re super practical for getting ready and in regular life.  Maybe pick different colors that coordinate or comfy denim ones.  Again, i’d stay away from monograms.

    I love robes so I voted for that. I’m trying to figure out what’s best for my girls, too!

    I would do a robe, but not those short silky ones since they really aren’t practical. 

    I like those thin jersey robes, they’re nice for when it’s warmer but you still want a comfy robe to wear around the house. I’d probably just get ones that are a solid color like this:
