Hello, loves! Holy cow, yesterday’s ‘Ask Emmaline’ wedding question sure brought in a new batch of wedding advice questions! And, to be honest, we’re totally loving it. (We love to hear from you!) One wedding question really peaked our interest, so here goes! Laura writes, “Dear Emmaline, I want to buy bridesmaid robes as a gift, but I can’t find anything cute they’ll actually want to wear again. Any suggestions?” Great question, Laura! I especially like the point about a bridesmaid robe they’ll actually wear again because, really, if they don’t, what’s the point? A bridesmaid robe is a great gift for three essential reasons… read on to see why we love ’em and find out one place to buy bridesmaid robes after the jump!
“Where to Buy Bridesmaid Robes?”
Before we show you where to buy bridesmaid robes, let’s talk about what makes them an amazing gift for your girls. First, do you know anyone who would turn down a custom-made dressing robe? Me either. Second, these bridesmaid robes aren’t slathered with ‘bridesmaid’ all over them, which means she will, in fact, be able to wear it again. And, third, how awesome do bridesmaid robes look in those ‘getting ready’ shots by your photographer? Very.
In response to where to buy bridesmaid robes, one place to check out is Modern Kimono. As the name suggests, this shop offers chic, modern kimono-style dressing robes. Kate, Modern Kimono’s owner and designer, wanted to create a collection of bridesmaid robes that were unlike any other. You won’t find heavy terry cloth or slinky, satiny robes here: instead, you’ll find comfy, 100% premium cotton robes at a mid-knee length, all completely custom-made to order. These robes are perfect for wearing while you brew your morning coffee, read the paper, or put on makeup. Sturdier than a towel, these robes are the perfect thing to wear while you you blow-dry your hair. And, best of all? These robes are handmade in the USA by Kate herself who is, in fact, a total sweetheart. She makes each robe with two hands, a sewing machine, tons of fun patterns and prints, and a whole lotta love. Just pick your favorite fabric, tell her your size, and she’ll take care of the rest! How’s that for an insanely easy gift-giving experience?
When you grab these robes for your girls, don’t forget to get one for yourself, too. There are plenty of white ‘bridal’ robes available in her shop. This is a perfect pampering gift for yourself – and packs in your suitcase nicely for the honeymoon, too.
And… there’s more coming up next so stay tuned! (Have you subscribed yet?)
