A bridal robe is traditionally the bridal party wears as they are dressing for the wedding. It may be a small part of your big day, but there are a number of things to consider.Here are some tips to keep in mind when selecting your bridal robe:
Know Your Budget
As with anything dealing with your wedding, cost will come into play when picking out robes for you and your bridal party. Consider price points as you pick out the robe as this is one more budget item.
Aim For Style
Bridal robes come in three primary styles, so select the style that works best for you and your bridal party. Spa robes are made of soft cotton, are loose fitting, and provide warmth during colder seasons. A wrap robe is more tailored, and is typically made of a lighter material such as polyester. If you want a full sleeved robe made of thinner material, a kimono is the happy medium between the two.
Consider Monogrammed Robes
Adding the monogram to your robe is the perfect way to add a personal touch to your bridal robe. This is a stylized lettering that can have your name, or initials written on the robes. Not only is this perfect for your wedding day, you, and your bridal party can wear them after the excitement of your wedding day has faded.
Color May Come Into Play
As with anything associated with your wedding, colors of the robe can be a strong consideration. If a joint decision, select colors that you and your bridal party agree on. An alternate way is to coordinate the robe color with the bride’s maid’s dresses.
Look For Added Features
While robes are simple and you don’t need any added features, they can be helpful for things you might need as you prepare on your wedding day. Pockets are useful to hold things as you get ready. Belts can be added to keep your robe sung as you move about getting ready.
