Bridesmaid gift - robes

I really love the Doie robes, but even with the discount they are a bit too expensive for me (http://www.doielounge.com/products/category/bridesmaids/).

Can anyone recommend a similar type for under $75 each? I'd like a soft jersey material, kimono style, and knee length. I can't find anything similar on etsy. I may look into AuppleAupple (http://www.etsy.com/shop/auppleaupple?ref=seller_info) or UnderWrapz (http://www.etsy.com/shop/UnderWrapzRobes?ref=seller_info) but I'm wondering how soft the fabric is. Anyone use these sellers?

I do not want monogramming, thick terry robes, or silk robes.

Re: Bridesmaid gift - robes

  • How many do you need? There were a bunch at Macy's when I was in 2 weeks ago.
  • 1 for me and 4 for my bridesmaids. Do you recall the brand or cost? I looked at macys on line but I didn't see anything that looked really special.
  • I have a Gap Body robe that I like, and I've gotten one for a friend before (unfortunately, the one I got her they appear to no longer have, it was super soft and had a ruffle on it).  Something like: http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=64654&vid=1&pid=279493&scid=279493032 is what I think I have.  

    Also, check Nordstroms.  They are having their big sale right now, and I saw at least 2 knee-length robes in the sale.  They have free shipping both ways and a great return policy, so I would just buy them and return them if you didn't like them.

    That's where I got mine and 6 others.  I love mine and it hangs in my bathroom.  I use it a couple of times a week.

    No, they all hate robes, but<em><strong> I</strong></em> like robes and I want them to look good for pictures on<strong><em> MY</em></strong> day. Seriously?

    Do you know my bridemaids? No you don't. Obviously the prior poster was trying to imply a nice robe was not a good gift and my comment in response was sarcastic. If I have to justify the choice of my gift, I have 4 bridesmaids. My sisters are the easiest people in the world to please. they both love clothes and primping. So something pretty to get ready in they would enjoy. My MOH just had multiples and is nursing and is a sahm, so I think she would get a lot of use out of it. My fourth bm works from home and is also fairly easy to please. I've also asked my very good friend who isn't in the wedding and she thinks it is a good idea and she's friends with 2 of my bms. If they don't want to get ready in the robes that's fine by me and we can just do a few pics in it. But if someone gave you a nice gift why wouldn't you use it? I am sure none of them are going to put up a stink that they hate the gift and refuse to get ready in it. Maybe someone like the pp, but I know my bridesmaids and they will love it. And if I have to further justify my choice of gift, I purchased all of their dresses which they each chose on their own and am paying for hair and makeup. So unless you have a constructive comment and can suggest a vendor of robes, please return to the discussion list and don't bother commenting on my question.

I was going to buy them just asnbsp;a nice gesture,nbsp;not as their gifts.nbsp;But you bring up a good point what if one would rather wear her own clothes while getting ready? Any advice would be much appreciated! Posted by adurant8[/QUOTE]

    If you think your bridesmaids would enjoy them, then buy them. If they don't want to wear them while getting ready then that's fine but see if they will take a few pics in them. I think that will not be a problem unless you have bridesmaids who are difficult for the sake of being difficult. My sisters and friends have gone out of their way to do try and help and please me and if I asked them to get ready in a potato sack they would because they are those kind of people, and I was the same way when I was in their wedding.

    Maybe I'm jinxing myself, but I just don't get the negativity between brides and their wedding party that I see on here. That's never happened with my friends.

    [QUOTE]Slowskys, we  see a lot of brides on here who just want to give their friends something that will get them some cute pics of getting ready rather than something their friends will really enjoy. By the way, telling people to get off a thread, or not to respond, is against Knot rules.
