Bridesmaids' Robes Alternatives to Set You and Your 'Maids Apart
From floral-printed kimonos, to silky wraps with monogrammed pockets, we've seen it all when it comes to getting-ready robes for the bridal party. And for good reason! Robes are an easy-on, easy-off option that make the transition from sitting for hair and makeup to stepping into a bridesmaids' dress so simple. While we love the tried-and-true trend—it's definitely not going anywhere anytime soon—robes are not the only comfy, cozy, and giftable getting-ready ensemble available for you and your girlfriends.
Enter super-cute rompers, oversized button-downs, soft sweatpants, and more. In these unexpected get-ups, you and your best friends will still be able to take those adorable, matching glam photos—you'll just be wearing a truly one-of-a-kind lounge outfit, instead. To help you find a unique bridesmaids' robe alternative that works for you and your bridal party, we rounded up a few of our favorite options currently on the market. We're major fans of the matching PJ set, and think your 'maids will be, too (they'll definitely wear their own ensemble long after the big day!). Love the coziness of a robe, but want to switch it up? Consider cashmere track pants, breathable t-shirts emblazoned with feminist anthems, and more.
What we love most about this trend is that there isn't one sustitute for a robe. Pick shorts, tops, sweats, and beyond—as long as your attendants are dressed cohesively, they'll pull it off. Ready to discover all of these imagined bridesmaids' robe alternatives for yourself? Ahead, amazing loungewear ideas that your bridesmaids will love on the big day and beyond.
