HI everyone! I have one bridesmaid in my wedding, however my best friend, my mom and my sisters friend will all be getting ready together. My future sister inlaw will also get her hair and make up done. I was planning to get my sister & BF a romper. I will wear a white one like this and I would buy a color print for them. Do I need to get rompers for my sister in law & sisters friend(also my friend) getting ready? I dont want anyone to feel left out, but none of them are in the wedding. I just wanted to get one for my sister & my best friend as they are helping with the wedding.. What about my mom? what would she wear? I want her to feel special and not left out. My mother in law will not be getting hair & make up done..so I dunno what to do woth her either! Help!

I think people make way too much of a fuss over “getting ready outfits” and end up wasting money on stuff that gets used once then shoved in the back of the closet. Just wear your usual lounging wear. Everyone has a robe or cute pajamas and such. That way, everyone is comfortable (more important than matching) and no one is wasting money.

I think you are coming from a kind place, but I don’t think it’s necessary to provide a matching getting ready outfits for your mom or really anyone, including your bridesmaids, to make them feel included. Let everyone get ready in clothes they most comfortable in. Maybe provide some mimosas or fun coffees, and a fruit platter or pastries for everyone while getting ready. Maybe extend an invite to your mother in law? That way she knows that she is welcome, but not pressured to be there?
Only buy the rompers for your bridsmaid and sister if it’s something you really think they would like, as if you were shopping for them for their birthday.
