One of our favorite wedding trends in recent years are pre-ceremony photos of the bride and her bridesmaids in fun robes! Not only will the pictures help tell a full story of your wedding day, but the matching outfits make the getting-ready process feel just a little more special – like a throwback to pajama parties you had as children. Plus, framing the photos is an easy, but thoughtful, final thank-you gift for your girls after all the wedding craziness is over.
If you want to get in on the bridesmaid robe trend, take a look at some of our most-loved examples from real weddings! Be sure to click each image for further wedding inspiration.
1. Bright Jewel TonesNothing pops in a photo quite like a bright color. If you couldn’t bring yourself to make your bridesmaids wear your favorite shade of fuchsia for their dresses, the robes are an excellent compromise that will add some fun and pizazz to your getting-ready photos.

The silky satin robes look luxurious, but they can also be a little chilly in an air-conditioned hotel room. For fall or winter weddings, consider a softer robe to keep your bridesmaids cozy and warm. Photo by KingenSmith
5. Bride in BlackWhether it’s the bridal shower, bachelorette party, or getting ready for the big day, you can usually find the bride in white. Eschew this trend by putting your bridesmaids in the pale robes and stand out by wearing black! Photo by John & Joseph Photography Inc.
