‘Getting ready attire’ may not sound like something any thought should be put into when planning for your Big Day, but if you’re having the photographer around to take some snaps of you and your girls chillaxing/panicking away on the morning of the wedding, you’ll probably want to look great outside while the butterflies flutter away inside! Fab personalised bridal robes, gorgeous floral silk kimonos and the sweetest PJs and rompers have popped up all over real weddings lately, as brides treat their girls to a cute keepsake and make them feel part of the celebration from the get-go. There are so many gorgeous styles of sleep and loungewear to choose from to make the morning feel really special with your mates; at the moment we’re loving the gorgeous range of two-piece shorts sets from New Look, the fun bridal themed PJs from ASOS and some of the fab robes available now at H&M (and online at HM.com! Whoop!). Check out more of the gorgeous ‘getting ready attire’ we’ve found below!
Robes and kimonos are the most popular options for morning wear at the moment; they look great in photos, feel AMAZING to wear and are the best option for whipping off quickly if you’ve spent too long sipping Champers after getting your make-up done!

Summer Shorts & Floral Rompers
For summer brides and maids, there’s nothing cuter that a floral romper or chic shorts set. There are plenty around the high street at the moment to choose from. We love the idea of dressing the bride in white and letting the girls have fun with prints!

Traditional Two-Piece PJs
Our favourite trend at the moment is a traditional and sweet PJ set. There’s something so cosy about a nice pair of jammies that’s guaranteed to help you feel a little calmer on the morning of the Big Day – the only problem will be wanting to get back into them just as quick!

Of course there’s nothing to say your girls have to be uniform with what they wear in the morning. If you’re more comfy in a pair of sweats or the oversized shirt you’ve had since 1996 go for that! Penneys have some great options for Disney lovers too – why not treat your ladies to a pair of PJs in their favourite Disney princess?!
