So I have seen a number of comments scattered across these boards along the lines of "ugg...bridal party robes!" I didn't want to derail any of those other topics, but I'm curious why there is so much shade being thrown on this idea. It's obviously one of a billion unnecessary little extras that the wedding industrial complex wants to make us believe we "need," but there seems to be a special slice of hate on robes that doesn't seem to attach to other such frivolities. What's up with that?
ETA: I'm not pro-robe or anti-robe personally. I'm just curious what it's all about.
