Stylish & Practical Bridesmaids Gift: Robes

It’s most likely that the women who will stand with  you on your wedding day, have stood beside you for many years through your life. They’ve been there for you then, and now — it’s nice to show your bridesmaids how much you love and appreciate them

We love the idea of gifting your bridesmaids with matching robes to wear while getting ready on your wedding day! Not only will they make for absolutely adorable photo opps… but they are totally practical, cute, and usable post-wedding! Check out our bride Elizabeth, who gave her ladies the prettiest, kimono-style robes in a gorgeous pattern, purchased from Plum Pretty Sugar. (If you haven’t checked out this site – you must – we are obsessed!)

We love the unity of the bridesmaids – but having the bride stand out! You and your girls can relax in something comfortable and cute while getting your hair and make-up done. Stylish and practical! Yay! Here are a few more options for getting-ready robes.

James & Leslie’s Highlight Film

I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July!

We just got a link to James and Leslie’s highlight film from their beautiful wedding last summer at the Rookery, and are SO excited to share! Cinematographers Chris & Oliver did a wonderful job capturing their day. If anyone is on the fence about hiring a videographer, I personally think it is worth the investment! See for yourself…
