I didn’t have one.  I just wore a black tank top and black comfy stretch pants.  The pictures turned out cute!

Not important at all, unless it’s important to you. I didn’t have one (for either wedding… been married twice) and I’ve been in 4 other weddings and none of those brides did either. They are cute, but you really are spending money for a single use thing, mostly. I mean, it’s not like you won’t be able to wear it at home after and all, but it will be a bit strange kind of maybe…

ETA: I wore a faux wrap summer dress that is one of my favorite pieces of clothing and that I knew I could take off by sliding it down instead of going overhead.

Didn’t have one, didn’t miss it, didn’t need it.  I wore a plain white halter shirt and capris while I had my hair and makeup done and then I changed directly into my dress.

What about a robe with your new last name on it? (if you’re changing your name) or a monogram?

I just wore a button-down shirt… when you’re getting your hair and makeup done, you just need to be wearing something that doesn’t have to go over your head.  Probably better to save your $$ and use it to buy some lingerie for the honeymoon Wink

Didn’t have one. Made zero difference. My “getting ready” outfit was sweatpants and a tank top that I decorated with iron-on letters to say “Mrs. Peanut” that cost about $15 altogether.

i’m not getting a “bride” robe, but i’m going to get a shorter, lighter cotton one that i will also wear on my wedding day.

i’m really into lazing around in a towel/robe after i shower, but right now i only have a big bushy one for winter!

so this new one will do double duty 🙂

I didn’t have one and I didn’t miss it.

@Pomapoo:  Good idea!

How important is it? Not at all. 🙂

I wore a sundress I was able to slip off without taking it over my head. If you want a robe, I bought a great one at Macy’s on sale for $12, that I can wear all the time. “Bride” triples the price.

I don’t know when I would have put it on….

We went to get our hair/makeup done at the salon, and once we got to the venue, had about 20min to put my dress on and get outside for our first look.

I don’t think its important really! But, this is probably one of the only times in your life that you will get to wear one so why not indulge!!

Only important if you want it. I already got one because I figure it’s the one time in my life I’ll splurge like crazy on all sorts of silly details, so I went for it. They do make for some cute pictures!

Considering my first thought when I saw your post was “what’s a bride robe??”  I’m thinking not that important.  🙂
