How to choose bridal robes for the bridal morning?

Bridal robes become an essential element of the wedding morning. Undoubtedly, every bride wants to look stylish and elegant at any time of her wedding day. A wedding robe is the first dressing gown for a bride on her special day that is helping her to get ready for the big day. A correctly chosen robe will make you feel and look pretty and comfortable. Let’s dive into the wedding robe shopping in more details and see what you should seriously consider when buying getting ready outfits.

How to choose a bridal robe?

First of all, a bride-to-be needs to choose a dressing gown paying attention to comfort. Undoubtfully, if it is a comfortable robe, then the photos will turn out beautiful, and you will feel at ease and free.

Secondly, the style of the bride depends on the quality and type of fabric she decides to go ahead with. For example, silk is traditional fabric for such a special bridal outfit. However, you can often find cheaper polyester robes that are not inferior to silk ones in appearance, but at the same time are not so pleasant to the touch. Also, polyester dressing gowns have one big drawback. Thus when they are worn for a long time, the fabric is electrified and sticks to the body. As a result the external aesthetics of the image is lost and the photo shooting will not be completely successful. That is why we recommend paying attention to higher quality robes made from natural fabrics. The ideal fabric for a bride’s getting ready attire is:

  • satin
  • chiffon
  • crepe de chine
  • crepe georgette combined with lace

The choice of a robe is a matter of the bride’s taste and is determined by the girl’s individual preferences about her bridal look. It is common when newlyweds prefer to choose not transparent, but more modest styles with a high waist.
