I’m trying to decide what I should do here for my bridal party for day of wedding (getting ready). Would you rather have:
A) Oversized vneck t-shirt with “Bridesmaid, Maid of Honor, etc” on the front?
B) Satin robe with “Bridesmaid, Maid of Honor, etc” on the back and “Name” on the front?
Also, for Mothers – would you do something something similar? Sometimes my mom complains that v-necks are too low and show too much cleavage for a “woman her age”. But definitely could do a different type of tshirt for her.

Nothing with bridesmaid, Maid/Matron of Honor etc or name on it.
Get cute pjs they can rewear always, no one wants or needs another useless thing in their closet with bridesmaid on it..and if your spending your own money on it get something they will actually use!
I was in my best friends wedding this weekend and she got us balck pj shorts and shirt with a collar pjs and wore a white robe we got some sneak peeks from phtoographer the pics are super cute, the pjs are very comfy and i will wear them always.
Similar to this but in black, if you want to see a pic of us in it for a visual i can send you privately

Please, nothing labeled “bridesmaid”.

Honestly, neither. Does anyone other than you really want a robe or T-shirt that says “bridesmaid”?

Per the bees above, I went with cute robes with no labels so that my bridesmaids could rewear them after the wedding!

Personally, I’d rather have something plain. If you decide to go with the robes, just have their name, or initials on it, please don’t put “bridesmaid, MOH”, etc. on them. I acutally have a really nice one that my friend got us for her wedding that I still use a lot, but it would have gone straight in the trash if it had “bridesmaid” on the back. If you are going to insist on the “bridesmaid” then just do the t-shirts

Echoing PPs–nothing with wedding titles. I wouldn’t wear a t-shirt to get my hair and makeup done as I would probably ruin my hair and makeup taking it off.

Neither, to be truthful. Id you absolutely must have everyone wearing specific/coordinated outfits for your getting-ready vision, do something that isn’t “personalized” with wedding role titles.
And please be mindful of modesty/comfort – for example, a lot of the getting-ready robes are not cut well for women who are very busty, and a lot of them are very very short, too. I’m personally not comfortable in satin robes as the fabric shows every lump/bump and doesn’t have any stretch or give to it.

futuremrspepper : neither. if you’re going to do getting ready wear, give them something plain. bonus: it will actually look much better in pictures, and not tacky

In what public situation would your bridesmaids wear a shirt with “bridesmaid” on it after your wedding?

futuremrspepper : *Plain* satin robe, no bridesmaid labeled stuff.

futuremrspepper : Agree, if you don’t want to waste your money don’t print names or labels on anything you purchase. Of the options you’re giving, I lean toward the robe because I hate V-necks. However can I offer the suggestion of oversized flannel shirts in their favorite colors? I would freaking love to get flannel shirt to fool around the house in

I did plain floral robes, no labels. No one is going to want clothing that says bridesmaid on it. And PP had a great point, the whole reason behind getting people robes or button down shirts to wear is so that they don’t mess up their hair and makeup when they take it off. A v neck shirt is a worse idea.
