Bridesmaids Robes | Perfect Bridesmaids Keepsake Gift

by Adell Hellstrom

Are you searching for the best bridesmaids robes? Well look no further! I’m recently married and I would love to help you find the perfect bridesmaids robes. I’ve searched all over and can confidently say that Etsy is your best online option for selection and pricing (yes, even better than Amazon). On Etsy, you can find robes for bridesmaids, flower girls and for the bride! Robes are a perfect keepsake gift for your bridesmaids!

It’s no surprise that getting your hair and makeup applied, while wearing robes, has become increasing popular and a definite must-have for your wedding day photos! The entire bridal party looks instantly glammed-up and ready for the camera!

Getting ready with your bridal party signifies one chapter closing, and being moments away from walking down the aisle towards the start of a new chapter – capture the moment.

How do you choose the best bridesmaids robes?

Well, first think about how you want your photos to look. Think about your wedding colors, and also keep in mind what colors complement your bridesmaids skin tones. Next, think about the design. Do you want robes that are more on the simple side with no design or do you prefer having floral, lace, or floral and lace. Do you want to personalize the robes with embroidery or ironed on foil? I personalized my bridesmaids robes using their first name’s initial. Personalization to the robes shows your bridesmaids you put thought into their gifts and it really makes them feel special. See my maid of honor in the pic below.

You could also add a monogram or a title such as maid of honor, bridesmaid or sister from another mister, you get the point. Have fun and get creative.

Here are some of the best bridesmaids robes available on Etsy

Not all floral robe designs are created equal. Look closely at the design. Some floral prints have flowers that are too small, too busy, too big, or even looks like a basic spa robe. Floral bridesmaids robes picture Embroidered monogram bridesmaids robes pictureFloral bridemaids robes picture

Where to find the robe deals on Etsy?

When choosing a business to purchase your robe from, consider the shipping costs and if you would like to ad something extra special for your amazing bridesmaids. Many shops offer a way to customize the robes but they may charge you for it.  Check to see if there are personalized foiling or embroidery options available.

I had seven bridesmaids, one flower girl, and myself, so I did not want to spend over $20 a robe.

I found an Etsy shop that offers a FREE gold initial on every robe purchased. This Etsy shop offered the lowest total cost + allowed free personalization so I am glad I found them (they also have a promo of 15% off any order or 20% orders over $150). Click here

What about small robes for the flower girl?

I purchased my bridesmaids robes and my bridal robe on Etsy. As for my tiny 2T wearing flower girl, I ordered her a matching robe off Amazon. Almost all of the robes for little toddlers were too big on Etsy, so I found Amazon to be the best overall for mini me robes. Check size availability and price here.

Don’t forget the brides robe!

You could really stand out by having your bridesmaids wear floral and you wearing a solid color; you would really pop out as the bride in the photo. I ultimately chose to also wear floral with my bridesmaids because I believe the photos just look better with a cohesive look, with everyone wearing the same floral robe. I did however choose to stand out as the bride, by wearing a different shade. I chose to wear the color ivory and I chose a light pink color for my bridesmaids and flower girl. The floral robes we wore felt luxurious and silky. Robes that have a sheen look to it, looks beautiful in photos.

You and your bridesmaids will look perfect on your wedding day, I just know it!

That’s a good point that you should consider the general color scheme and how they will look in photos when choosing bridesmaid robes. My wedding is coming up in a few months, and I want my bridesmaids to feel extra special. Thanks for explaining how I can find the perfect robes for the occasion.

😺 I’ll write a post about it! I can’t wait until Olivia grows up and looks back at the charm and thinks about the day she was my flower girl 💐 so cute!
