If there’s one thing that you can’t forget to do when planning your wedding with your bridesmaids – it’s organising bridesmaid robes. These are gifts that are often given from the bride to the bridesmaids and are sometimes customised for each bridal party member. But what do you need to know before you buy one? Read on to find out.
Who Buys the Robes?
There can often be some confusion over who organises and purchases bridesmaid robes. Some people say it’s a job for the maid of honour, while others say it’s on the bride’s shoulders. In most cases, this job falls to the bride.
These robes are often specially chosen to suit the wedding style and be a memorable gift. They are also something that looks stunning in photo ops and pre-wedding events like manicure sessions.
When Do You Give the Bridesmaids Their Robes?
Any time you like! However, there are some popular windows of opportunity that brides seem to take. Some preorganise the robes to “pop the question” to their chosen bridesmaids about asking them to take on the role.
Other brides give them the day before the wedding, at the rehearsal dinner, or even the bachelorette party.
