Wait…  you think you’ll be spending 8 hours in the robe?  I didn’t do the whole bridal party/getting ready party thing for my wedding, but I have been a bridesmaid before many times and don’t think we ever wore robes for that long.  Usually they were put on shortly before the photographer snapped some staged ‘getting ready’ photos, so maybe worn for an hour, two at the most.

I didn’t read the whole discussion, just the first page and from your responses down.    It sounds like you are really wedded (pun intended) to the idea of wearing white on your wedding day.    Do I understand this sentiment….not really.    Would I think its no big deal…..yes.    Would I save the money and just keep the aqua robe and not buy a white one….yes.    Does it matter to you what I really think….I hope not.   

You should care about what you and your mother think.    I have daughter.  If one of them came to me in private and told me that she loves the robe, appreciates that I go it in her favorite color, aknowledged that it was thoughtful to get something that I had said I wanted….but that she really wanted white and it was her dream to wear white all day on her wedding day.   I would understand and not be upset.   I love my daughters and want them to be happy.    I think this may have been blown out of proportion if your mom is a normal loving mother.   If she is a crazy control freak…ignore my thoughts.

Unless you’re like a 50 year old virgin who is marrying a male model and comes from a super old school family, I don’t get the obsession with wearing white all day. You can wear your white robe for 7.75 of the 8 hours, and take 15 minutes of photos in the robe your mom got you. How is that a big deal?

You’re going to spend 8 hours in your robe? That sounds a bit excessive. You do sound like you’re being a bit of a bridezilla. It sounds like your mother thought a lot about your gift and it is important to her. To me, it doesn’t sound like a big deal to wear the robe that she gave you.

Don’t worry about spending 8 hours in a robe. My bridesmaids and I got ready for my wedding without ANY robes.

For my friends wedding, we put on robes for 15/20mins for pictures and that was it.

Are you expecting your bridesmaids to be in these matching robes all day too??

I would just wear the robe. Idk, to me it’s not worth getting bent out of shape and hurting my mom’s feelings over the color of a robe.  I had several friends who lost their mom lately and my own mom is getting older and I’m realizing that we have limited time left.  If she gifted me something that wasn’t my cup of tea but I didn’t love I would absolutely wear it to make her happy.  Then again,  I had no getting ready pictures and I, along with my bridesmaids,  just wore whatever to get ready because that stuff just isn’t a big deal to me.

I honestly don’t feel like you need to wear it the *whole* time. I’d think of a couple detailed photos with your mom and the robe that the photographer can shoot. Like her putting on your necklace, or giving you a giant hug, you handing her her crosage (or whatever), something that capture a lovely moment together with the robe.

Well, you did say “robe DRAMA”. Obviously there will be drama in this thread, only it’s all against you.
