What To Wear When Getting Ready

What should you wear when getting ready? 

It’s important to consider what you and your bridal party will be wearing during the getting ready process. While this is something that can often be overlooked, there are quite a few reasons why you need to think about what you’ll be wearing when getting your hair and makeup done. Here are just a few thoughts to consider:

  1. When getting ready, you want to make sure that you’re going to be wearing something that will be easy to take off after your hair is done. You don’t want to wear anything that will potentially mess up your perfectly fresh bridal hair-do. This is probably the most important consideration when deciding what to wear when getting ready.
  2. Comfort is key on the wedding day. You’ll spend a few hours of your day getting ready, so you want to wear something that you feel good lounging in.
  3. Lastly, as we know, details matter. You want to wear something that looks classy because you will be photographed in whatever you are wearing during the getting ready process. Keep in mind that your bridal party will also be in your getting ready pictures, so what they are wearing is important, too. Coordinating what everyone will be wearing will definitely look great in photos, plus, on such a busy morning, it also helps to identify who is actually in the bridal party.
Oh, The Options

We’ve seen quite a few unique options from our bridal parties. We love long lace robes, like the one pictured above. We’ve even had an entire bridal party wear matching zip up onsies since they were getting ready in a hotel, and hotels are notoriously known for being cold. While we love when our bridal parties get creative with what they will be wearing to get ready in, a common thing that we see is that the bride usually wears white or a light color, and the bridesmaids usually dress alike. Often times, the bridesmaids wear colors that match the color scheme of the wedding. Also, giving your bridesmaids something to get ready in is a great gift that they will be able to get more use out of after the wedding!

Some Of Our Faves

Check out what some of our past bridal parties wore during their getting ready session below:

Robes are always a hit. We love cotton or silk floral robes. They are classy, sexy, and easy to wear.

Pajama sets are another great option. Button down tops are perfect, and we also love that this bridal party chose shorts as bottoms.

Over-sized button down shirts are another unique option. This is a cute cross between a robe and pajamas!

What will you and your bridal party be wearing during the getting ready process on the big day?
