Seven Pretty Pieces to Wear While Getting Ready With Your Bridesmaids

Plenty of thought goes into what a bride and her bridesmaids will wear down the aisle on the big day, but there’s a whole morning’s (or even day’s) worth of activity—manis, pedis, hair, makeup, and mimosas—to dress for before the ceremony even starts.

For obvious reasons, it’s best to leave the official gowns in their garment bags until the last-possible minute, so pick comfy, cozy robes, nightshirts, or pajama sets to wear while getting ready. Button-downs and wrap fronts make it easy to change without messing up your hair and makeup, and pretty pastels and floral patterns will add a punch of color to your getting-ready photos. The best part? They make great gifts for your best girls. Here are seven pre-wedding pieces we’d love to get dolled up in.


Short and Sweet

Waffle Weave

A crisp, white button-down shirt is timeless and photographs well. Just add a monogram for a pretty pop of color.
