Would love to know when bridal party gifts were given to your bridesmaids. More specifically, pajamas/robes for them to wear. I know a lot of people dislike robes very much, and for good reason but I still know people give them, and I'd love to hear your thoughts. Disclaimer: I got my bridesmaids each a luxury pajama set (shorts and button up shirt) to get ready for on the morning of my wedding.
We will be getting married about 3 hours away from where we live, and we will be heading up to the town our venue is in on the Monday or Tuesday before our wedding, and all of my bridesmaids will be arriving by Wednesday. Since its a destination for approximately 70% of our guest list, most of our guests will also be coming up the week before, including my Fiancés entire extended family. I am wanting to have everything (as much as possible) done the week before our wedding so that I can really try to enjoy our time with friends and family because it will be the only time we'll all be together!
Anyways, I am wanting to have my bridal party gifts wrapped before we even leave for the venue earlier in the week so that theres no chance of them seeing anything, and also so that its one less thing I'll need to do that week. I am giving them each a pajama set, a bracelet that they'll wear at the wedding, a wine tumbler with their name on it, and then a personalized gift for each person (as you would with a normal birthday gift, etc.). We will all be staying at the same resort, and will be getting ready on the first floor in the "Bridal Ready Room". Originally I had planned on giving them these items once they arrived in the morning for hair and makeup (and breakfast!), but now I'm wondering if it makes more sense to wrap their pajamas separately and give those to them first thing in the morning before they head down to the Bridal Room. I just think its one less thing for them all to worry about (as well as have to schlep back to their actual rooms at the end of the day), and I feel its sort of awkward to hand them an outfit to go change into once they have already arrived in something. The other option was giving the pajama sets to them at the rehearsal dinner? I feel like thats sort of a strange gift to hand them though, and there'll be other people around who I'm sure will be watching also. Or I could give them the sets after the rehearsal dinner once we are back at the hotel? If I gave the pajamas to them prior to when they arrive in the Bridal Room, I could just have their other gifts waiting in the room for them? Yikes, I'm the worst.
I know I am definitely overthinking this - its just something that I do. But I would love to know what ya'll did, and if you would recommend the same. Thanks in advance!
