So I have been driving myself nuts over what to get my bridesmaids as a getting ready outfit. I have a question though…. if they aren’t getting their hair or makeup done professionally, will they even wear it? Would it be a waste of my money to buy something if only half are getting their hair done with me?
Let me know!

I wouldn’t worry about dressing your bridesmaids for the getting-ready part.

This is really only important for the photos. It’s not an actual gift-giving obligation. You need to give your party a gift of some sort, but that doesn’t need to be getting-ready related.

It’s something they’d just wear once and I don’t think it’s necessary (speaking as a 6-time BM).
ETA: And, your hunch is exactly right – if they don’t use it at an overnight bachelorette or getting ready with you… when would they wear it (the answer: never)

I am totally giving them a gift! I really wanted to do this for pictures but I am not even sure if its even worth it!
This wasn’t going to be the only gift or even a substantial part of it. Just a fun side gift for the pictures.

I was just in a wedding and the bride got us all workout pants (from Old Navy I believe) and then ironed on fabric letters to spell our names. They were really cute and definitely something that I would – and have – worn again. We didn’t all get ready together, but because it was such a useful piece of clothing (and not, say, an over-sized button down shirt) it was really appreciated.

I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in one of my dear friend’s wedding and she got us light weight robes with our name embroidered. I LOOOOVE that stinkin thing! Its light weight – so I dont get so hot when Im blow drying my hair or right after I get out of a hot shower!
