    If they were like bridesmaids robes to wear while getting ready, that may be really fun for pics. But I’m not sure if I would ever use it again after that? I received a robe as a wedding present and love it, but most of the time, people already have one. You know?

    I’m not sure where to get them…I’d like to know myself!

    But many photographers that I have talked to recommend it, whether the robes are gifts or not. They look amazing in photos and unify the bridal party. I’d go for it!

    I wouldn’t wear a silky robe. I prefer the terrycloth functional dry-you-off robes, as opposed to the more sexy “go to bed for naughty times” kind of robes.

    If I got a silky bridesmaid robe, it’d go in a drawer never to be used again, but if it was a functional robe, quite possibly.

    I’m getting them robes because I want the pictures lol. I’m also getting them pashminas to wear if they get cold that compliment their dresses, a diamond candle, a makeup bag filled w/ goodies from bath and bodyworks, and 6 month subscription to Birchbox. Oh and hangers w/ their names on it also because I want the pictures. The real gift is the birchbox subscription (and the candles), I figured since everything else is because I want the picture, it’s more a gift for me than them, lol

    @Whitney818:  Keep an eye on La Vie en Rose’s website. They have great specials and the colors change regularly. You can often get short robes for $10 on sale.

    @Whitney818:  Asking this far in advance would be fine IMO. I would ask about like 5 things, like facials, massages, robes, shoes, necklaces and see what they say.

    If you’re all on FB, you can make a group so you guys can all communicate about stuff like this.

    @Whitney818:  I think they’re amazing! How about personalizing them? And if you’re worried about them not getting used after the wedding, maybe instead getting ‘Bridesmaid’ embroided on them, how about their name instead?

    @Whitney818:  I would imagine that any absorbant material would be functional. Silk and silk-like materials generally aren’t (and tend to stick funny to your body when wet) so that’s my personal preference to stay away from.

    @Quinlan:  Agreed.  If you do decide to personalize them, I would get names.  I was in a wedding several years ago and the bride got all of us robes that were very nice.  I would have worn it again, but it sits in a drawer somewere because she had gotten it personalized with “Ashley & Brandon 2008.”  ๐Ÿ˜›

    @DrTeeth:  I didn’t even think of that. I wouldn’t re-use something that had their names emblazened on it.

    robes would be awesomeeee..something like this for the bride:

    and these for the bridesmaids:

     

    additional gifts could be like a make up bag with goodies inside.. or champagne flute with their names so you girls can have mimosas while getting ready *_*
