Do you think this is a cute bridesmaid gift?

Question by Sunkissed5: Do you think this is a cute bridesmaid gift?
I want pictures of us getting ready, before the wedding. So I was going to buy a robe that says "bride" in white, and them bridesmaid robes with their names on them in pink. Will they like that? Any other bridesmaid gift ideas?

Best answer:

Answer by Blunt
A personalized robe with their initials would be lovely. They already know their name, and do not waste your time embroidering "bridesmaid" on it or your wedding date. Their initials alone would make a love,y long.astinf gift. Good luck

    I agree with Blunt.The idea of the robe is great though,it’s useful and they will be using it for many years to come.Basically anything goes as a gift as long as it isn’t connected to your wedding.So,you could buy them jewellery (provided it isn’t for them to wear on the day) or you can get them gift cards to their favourite shop.An experience day such as a spa day,handbags.Get them something connected to a hobby they do.Chocolates,a bottle of their favourite perfume or a make a gift basket containing all of their favourite things (you can buy mini toiletries,coffee sachets,boxes of chocolates etc).You know what your budget is and you should know what your bridesmaids like so take it from there

    I’m sorry, but that will be a huge waste of your money. Most people over the age of 14 don’t want anything with their names embroidered on it, and no one wants a robe with “bridesmaid” embroidered on it (not sure if you were planning on doing that or not). At any rate, the best gifts for your bridesmaids are things that are actual gifts for them- something tailored to their individual tastes that will let them know how much you love and appreciate them. Don’t try to make them all the same. Congratulations. :)

    I would love a nice gift like that, especially since it is in pink.

    For my bridesmaids, I got them pretty rhinestone necklaces with matching earrings. They wore them with their bridesmaids dresses, but the jewelry was classy enough to be worn other times as well. I say do something like that. Not everybody wears bathrobes.

    The general thinking on this is that, since bridesmaid gifts are to THANK them for what they’ve done for you, anything wedding related should be avoided if it’s the only gift you get. And depending on who these people are, you might not even get the same thing for all of them. You want to get them something they’ll like.

    Personally, I’d keep a robe that said bridesmaid on it – if I liked the robe and the color. But if you can’t afford a separate, decent gift for each girl, then I think it’s self serving. You’re doing it to get good photos for yourself.

    By decent, I mean anything: nice costume jewelry, wallets, clutches, gift baskets, lotion/bubble bath/candle sets for girly girls…that sort of thing.

    Nice, but have their initials put on them not bridesmaids, after the wedding they can then use them. consider robes while getting ready—many people when they are nervous or a lot of people are together in one small space, get hot, very hot. I also like individual tote bags. I have one left over that says Mother of the Bride, while very useful beforehand and a treasured gift, I rarely use it. Would rather have something with my initials on it. People tend to ask when is the wedding when I use the MOB tote and it’s over and done and I have to explain, etc. and please do not get them something to wear during the wedding and then say they can keep as a gift. The jewelry is a part of their wedding attire and not an individual gift.

    That’s not a gift, it’s another costume they’d have to wear for your photos.

    A nice robe with their names on it would be lovely.
    However the word bridesmaid does not have to be on it.

    I’m buying my bridesmaids necklaces with their names on it. We’re doing the same thing (wearing robes with bride and bridesmaid on the back and doing pictures) but I bought and had the robes specialized just because I didn’t think it was a satisfactory gift to give someone a robe. But that’s just me :)

    I better answer this question Sunkissed5 before I pop out to work :( I’m sorry, but that will be a huge waste of your money. Most people over the age of 14 don’t want anything with their names embroidered on it, and no one wants a robe wit I hope this answers your question.

    As a concerned parent, I thought I’d give my possible solution. ahhh just get the brides maids sweet matching bracelets , that can be worn all the time , they will know it is special to them and from You, have a wonderful wedding ! :) Take care y’all!
