Having spent many of hours in a bride’s dressing rooms, I’ve seen it all. There are so many factors that go into creating a fun and positive energy in the bridal suite, but my favorite detail is the fashion. So much time goes into picking the perfect dresses, of course, but I love when our couples put extra thought into everyone’s attire before that. A bride and her besties getting their hair and makeup done in playful loungewear while drinking mimosas, can be one of the best memories of the day. Here are just a few of my favorite looks.

ROBES // Always cute. From silk to cotton. Embroidered to patterned, there are so many amazing options here. But being a pink girl, myself, I always love a bride in white with her maids in blush.

You can find  a similar ivory robe at Anthro and Plum Pretty Sugar is our go to for pretty patterns.

MATCHING SETS // Love these. Very functional and potentially the most comfortable option. This is something your girls can realistically wear for years to come. Custom embroidery is a great option for these – each person’s initials on the front pocket? Such a cute and personal detail.

Jesse of Say Jess Please choose these pretty pink sets for her girls as captured by Abby Jiu.

We love this blush set from Nordstrom while the blue shorts set from Top Shop is a bit more accessibly priced.

SLIP DRESSES // Basically a night gown – but oh so chic. This option is sophisticated, feminine and elevated and it’s my personal favorite.

Helena Quinn is the queen of silk slips and this gown in apricot  is so special. Urban Outfitters also offers a super pretty midi slip in Ivory.

Whatever option you choose, don’t forget to order a third variation to acknowledge yet separate, moms and flower girls, from you and the bridesmaids!
