- Wedding: December 2017
I really like the idea of everyone getting ready in similar outfits. The pictures of everyone in nice robes or everyone donning their fav yoga pants, and a cute tee shirt, make me smile. Also, more importantly, my BMs love it – as soon as I was engaged, a few of them asked what could we wear to get ready? to the wedding? to the bachelorette?
We are a group who regularly likes to match (“everyone wear a LBD to so-and-so’s birthday!” “lets all wear pink to brunch!” “ONESIE SLEEPOVER!!”) it has just always been our group thing 🙂
I don’t want to go for something cheap, and in doing so pick something they will secretly hate. I don’t want to buy something insanely expensive either… whatever it is, obviously I am more than happy to pay for it, but I am not sure I want to go forward with the idea.
I was wondering if anyone has had a GOOD experience with this? Have you found something cute for you and your girls? Did you receive something to wear at a wedding, and actually like it?
For those who don’t like getting something to wear, what have you seen that you did not like?
If it matters, this gift would not at all be their thank you gift for standing by my side. I personally don’t feel it is best to give a gift that is basically for the sake of my pictures. I have picked designer clutches to have monogramed and filled with some champagne gummy bears, chocolate, tissues with Kim Kardashian’s crying face on them lolololz! and candles from Anthropologie.
I would love pictures!! Also one or two of my bridesmaids, like me, are curvy. I want to be sensitive to the fact that they may not want to wear anything too reavealing… any ideas??
