I think my FMIL and my fiance’s 2 sisters will have their hair & makeup done at the suite with my Mom and my 3 bridesmaids. I’m going to get robes for my Mom & bridesmaids but debating if I shoud get robes for my FMIL & sisters too, or is that weird?
Or should I get one color robes for my bridesmaids and another color for my Mom & FMIL & my fiance’s sisters? Or just robes for the bridesmaids?
We’re having a destination wedding – I had offered to my FMIL & the sisters that we could have a hair/makeup person go to their Airbnb but I think they want to get ready with us so just debating what to do about the bridemaid robes. Any thoughts?

Nah. Just do it for the bridesmaids. I was pretty clear with my girls that it was a uniform in which I would force them to take cutesy matchy pictures.

I just had the exact same talk with my H2B, he wsas getting a bit annoyed that I wasn’t getting robes for his mother and sister – I had to point out that at his sister’s wedding 2 years ago his mother didn’t get a robe either. We’re at the point where we just can’t keep stretching our budget for the little things.

I would get them for the bridesmaids only.
Including your mom and excluding your FMIL and sisters is not sending a nice message.

Agree with PP. I would do bridesmaids only, not mothers and sistes. Or, include everyone.

katebluestone : You’re right, doing a robe for my Mom but not my FMIL would feel weird. I had planned to get robes for the bridesmaids + my Mom when it was just them getting ready with me, but now that I’m including my FMIL and my future SILs, just debating what to do with robes in general. Will probably just go with bridesmaids only to keep it simple.

I was faced with this same situation. I got grey silk robes for our girls and black for my mom, FMIL, Grandma, FI’s Grandma and my aunt’s and FI’s aunts that will be getting ready with us. All in I think I bought about 12 silk robes, good news is they were from amazon and pretty affordable =)

I would limit it to the bridesmaids (and maybe the SIL if she’s of your age) and don’t involve any moms in robe purchases. Either that or give robes to everyone.
