Let’s be honest, two of the first questions that likely pop into your head when starting to plan the big day are:
- who will be your bridesmaid?
- what will they wear on the big day?
Never mind that – what will they wear while getting ready for the grand occasion?
Preparing for the biggest day of your life is a perfect bonding moment for you and your bridesmaids. And what could be better than to top it off with matching robes, right?
Silk robes are a popular item as gifts for your bridesmaids. They make for a wonderful photo op and can be re-used after the wedding by each of your besties.
Kimono Silk Bridesmaid Robes
For everyday, we do love an oriental Kimono to finish an outfit, so why not take this trend and make the most of it for your wedding prep? Your bridesmaids will love the cozy feel of a Kimono, and the fit is ultra-flattering on all body types.
1. Floral Bridesmaid Robe
This exact silk Kimono from Etsy comes in a huge selection of colors, so you can find the one that fits with your wedding color scheme. As expected, this robe has gorgeous Kimono sleeves, and is really authentic with the oriental-inspired print. We are loving the idea of a lavender one with this striking floral print.
2. Elegant Tall Bridesmaids
This robe by Papinelle is perfect for those with taller bridesmaids in their bridal party. It is longer, and cuts off at a nice length at any height. Made from 100% silk, it will feel soft against your skin, and the creamy feminine pink color will be amazing in bridal morning photos.
3. BHLDN Silk Beauty
BHLDN delivers with a kimono robe that has everything you want. This dreamy pastel print will take you away from the chaos of the wedding morning. Also, and it has pockets (so important) to store any morning essentials.
If Pantone is listening: we’ve fallen in love with the shades Cameo/Rose! Can we put in our request for color of the year
2018? Make that 2019 — they annouced their color 2018 of the year as Ultra Violet!
Knee-Length Bridesmaid Robes
If planning a fall or winter wedding, you may want to re-think length. With so many companies offering to design pieces according to your bridesmaids’ height, you can each get individual knee-length robes.
4. Eggplant Bridesmaid Robe Set
As we mentioned above, some companies will create personalized robes based on measurements. Good news – this gorgeous eggplant color silk bridesmaid robe can be made for everyone!
Silk and More is a top rated Etsy seller that even does maternity robes and matching ones for your flower girls. No excuses, now all the girls can match while getting ready.
5. Ombré Bridesmaid Robe
If you aren’t into floral prints, then you’ll absolutely adore this ombré robe from Plum Pretty Sugar!
The ombré goes from white to blue, with hints of silver and grey. The cross-over detailing is figure-flattering, and the self-tie sash will pull you in at the waist, giving you gorgeous photos that you will treasure forever.
6. Exotic Print Robe
The cut-out detailing is a showstopper.
Made of the finest silk, from the back you could be fooled into thinking it was a summer dress. The exotic print was chosen by Bride’s Magazine Editor in Chief Keija Minor, hence the name of the Minor Robe. She certainly knows a thing or two about weddings and the print will make you and your bridesmaids feel fabulous even when you haven’t had your hair or makeup done!
Floral Pattern Silk Bridesmaid Robes
For robes that match the scenery at your wedding, floral patterns are the ones to go for. They are timeless, feminine, and all your bridesmaids will love them. They may not even want to take them off for the wedding!
7. Short Sleeve Silk Crêpe
This light pink robe from Plum Pretty Sugar is a great alternative for those who are planning an exotic wedding with warmer temperatures. Made from silk crêpe, it is even lighter than 100% silk, and the short sleeves will let you and your bridesmaids feel loose and carefree (well, almost)!
The twist with this robe is that there is a cut-out back detailing, making it even more modern and feminine, what’s not to love?
8. Floral Print Kimono Style Robe
We just adore the look of this soft modal kimono style robe from BHLDN. Style savvy brides will definitely have to add this silk robe to your online shopping basket. It’s available in four patterns – our favorite is this mint with floral and red trim!
9. Luxury Silk Kimono
If you want to treat yourself and your bridesmaids to something special, we highly recommend this silk kimono from Bibiluxe. Made of 100% pure silk, this pretty floral print is limited edition and comes in 4 different lengths. Not to mention we just adore the feminine pattern!
Personalized Silk Bridesmaid Robes
Sounds cheesy, right? It doesn’t have to be!
Personalized silk bridesmaid robes are even more, well, personal. Your bridesmaids will be thrilled to have their name, or a nickname, on the back of their robe, and it could make for some pretty cool photos. BHLDN eat your heart out!
10. Personalized Blush Robes
Gorgeous blush robes are a staple of fun loving photography like the bridal morning above. A bride and her best friends, what can top that? Perhaps having all the robes personalized!
When you put your order through with The Fancy Pigeon, just let them know what you would like to be embroidered on each one. A logo or a name are the standard customization options.
We think the date of your special day could be a great way to make sure everyone remembers your special day forever.
11. Gold Monogram Robes
Why not have the most fabulous robes ever with sparkly writing? We think gold monograms look feminine but sweet against white and blush, but you can choose whatever color you want. They go up to a size 14 and are in a kimono style so that everyone looks and feels amazing.
12. Monogram Bridesmaid Robe Set
Knee-length robes are even better when they are personalized! May Silk designs not only allows you to chose colors, but also mix and match, so that your robes are personalized with monograms and also colors. If you’re taking a new last name, how about getting your future surname monogrammed on the back?
