If you are like most women, your wedding is something you have been dreaming about for years. You probably even had it all planned in your head long before Mr. Right came along. Your bridesmaids are going to be a very important part of your wedding day and it is important to make their experience amazing and show them that you really do appreciate their contribution. One way in which you can do this is by gifting them with bridesmaid robes. For aesthetic purposes, wouldn’t it be great if you all had matching robes to wear as you prepare for the big day? Choosing bride and bridesmaid robes might seem like a simple thing, but it is not as easy as many people think it is.
This article highlights the important things you need to consider when choosing bride and bridesmaid robes.
Bridal robes come in a wide range of prices and it is up to you to determine how much you can afford to spend on your robe and your bridesmaids’ robes. If you are on a tight budget, go for something simple and affordable, as long as it is of good quality. Your bridesmaids will still appreciate the gift. However, note that affordable does not necessarily mean cheap. In fact, do not buy robes whose prices are ridiculously low as you are most likely to regret your decision. They will probably be of poor quality and will either start fading or wearing out very fast. You want to get something that your bridesmaids will be able to use for a long time to come.
There are three types of robes; spa robes, wrap robes and kimono robes. It is a good idea to go with one type for yourself and your maids for aesthetic purposes. Spa robes are the most popular for use as bride and bridesmaid robes as they are very soft and comfy. They are made of cotton and are meant to be oversized so you can get one size for yourself and all your bridesmaids, and not have to worry about whether they will fit. Wrap robes are made of lighter materials such as polyester and silk. For these, you have to try and get the right size for everyone. Kimono robes fall somewhere between wrap robes and spa robes. For these, you also have to get the right size for everyone. The choice is entirely up to you and your maids.
You can choose to go with different colors of robes just to spice up the photos that you are going to take. Alternatively, you can go with one color for the maids and a different color for yourself, or one color for all of you; whatever tickles your fancy. If you want, you can choose robes that complement your wedding color scheme. The robes can either be plain or printed. However, whatever colors or prints you choose to go with, ensure that they are colors and prints that your bridesmaids will be comfortable wearing at home.
