    @Spanglbee:  I generally like my items not personalized. 🙂

    I would put bride on yours and leave theres blank. But if you would like them personalized i would put their initials on the front.

    I am looking for robes for my BMs as well (where did you find yours??).

    I am the first of my friends to get married, but a few of them are engaged. So I think I will leave them as they are since many of them will have changes in their initials, and I don’t think anyone will use something that says “bridesmaid” ever again.

    @Spanglbee:  don’t put the titles on them. no way would i ever re-wear something that said bridesmaid.

    i would wear something with my initials on it, or plain.

    I voted for the monogram, now after reading I want to clarify when you say ‘My initials on front’ I’m assuming you mean the BM’s initials.. right?

    I would like it with bridesmaid on the back. It’s a lovely memento.

    I got my bridesmaid’s robes embrodiered (sp) but not with initials.  It has the first letter of their name in a larger size font and then the rest of their name spelled out in script and it kind of overlaps.

    I bought floral kimonos for my BM’s from an Etsy seller and I did not have them monogrammed as I thought it would be too much with the floral design. I was very pleased with them

    I haven’t worn anything personalized since kindergarten and I don’t intend to start any time soon. Other than for your pics, I see no reason for adding names, initials or titles. They all know their names and, presumably by the wedding day, each other’s.

    If you are gonna personalized it I would only do the first initial because last names change. Personally I think its a waste of money no one is gonna care if it has their name on it. I would save the $6 each and buy a bottle of wine to go with it.

    I think their initials on it would be nice. They could wear it other times. I would prob not wear it again if it said bridesmaid on the back.

    @engleman10513:  +1! This! I just used their first initial because I didn’t wnat anyone to end up with a robe a year or two down the road with the wrong initials.


    @Spanglbee:  I’d try and get a feel for what they think of monogrammed items. Some people like it – some don’t. Figure out what your girls like and go with that.
