THE PERFECT BRIDESMAID KIMONO ROBE
Today I'm talking about the infamous bridesmaids' robes! Like most brides, I was SO excited to buy my bridesmaids their gifts for the day of. I knew I wanted a robe that was long and beautiful, but I didn't want the typical floral robe you see all over Pinterest. Don't get me wrong, I love a good floral robe, but I wanted something special, something unique. I searched for months; I found a lot of great contenders on Etsy and then a week before the wedding, I stumbled upon a UK online shop An Indian Summer. My heart stopped! And, their pricing was great! Their Kimono Robes were everything I wanted for my girls and our mothers. The beautiful eclectic prints and the gorgeous artisan fabrics made them so easy to say yes to!
Our wedding colors were rather neutral, the bridesmaids wore white and our florals were wild, with romantic soft color tones. I emailed them immediately and expressed that I needed a total of 13... YES 13, and I needed them quickly! 9 bridesmaids, our mothers, Kris's sister and my brother's girlfriend. Fortunately, they had the quantity we needed in the Indian hand blocked floral Chinoiserie. SOLD! I was really so in love with all of them, that no matter what pattern was available I would have purchased! It was so close to the wedding date and time flys by at lighting speed the closer the day gets, it was one thing checked off the list. The girls absolutely LOVED them and they photographed beautifully!
What I loved about them the most was the length. My only request for the bridesmaids dresses, was that they wear a white dress and it must be long. I wanted to carry the romance of a long gown throughout the whole day and opting for a floor length kimono was the perfect fit! They were also light weight, so perfect to wear when getting ready!
