It’s wedding season and we’re ready to drape your entire bridal party in something beautiful! Over the years, gifts for the bridal party have become more and more popular as a way to bring both luxury and function to your wedding party gifts. You want to gift something that’s special for the day, but you want them to enjoy it for years to come as well. It can be hard to find the right gift when you have such varying personalities in your bridal party. But the good news is everyone loves a little luxury, and a floral kimono robe is just that!
A floral kimono robe is a perfect gift for your bridal party to uplevel your getting ready photos on the big day. It’s a great way to add your wedding day colors to your photos in a hotel room or changing area that otherwise isn’t decorated. And it’s a kind and loving way to wrap your friends and family in your gratitude. It’s something they will be able to wear for years to come and feel a little bit of luxury each time they do it. So today in the journal, we’re breaking down all the ways you can style your bridal party with charmeuse and silk kimono robes for a beautiful big day. Become inspired by our bridal party kimono robes and style bridal party outfits to wear before or after your ceremony.
We know you love your whole crew, but you might be inspired to feature or acknowledge the different roles your friends and families play through the way you style their floral kimono robes. The way to do this is to choose one style and length, and then vary the color that you give to each member of your bridal party. You can choose one color of the floral kimono robe for your bridesmaids, one color for your maid of honor, and one for the mother of the bride. You can use the different colors to create a collection look. It can bring out even more of your wedding day color palette and make each member of your bridal party feel specially acknowledged and loved.
We love a short kimono robe! The shorter lengths work fantastically when you have a range of heights in your bridal party. With most of our short kimono robes falling around 35” from shoulder to the bottom of the hem, these shorter pieces look great on everyone and let all members of your bridal party match, even if their heights don’t. They’re long enough to take advantage of the beautiful liquid drape, but short enough to make sure they don’t drag on the floor for your shorter friends and family. These short kimono robes double as beautiful lightweight jackets in the summer months too — a win-win!
Once you find the perfect style and color silk kimono robe that matches perfectly with your big day, the next way to style these beauties is to choose varying lengths. You may opt to gift your bridal party short silk kimono robes and offer your mom and soon-to-be mother-in law a longer length silk kimono robe. The material and designs will be the same so all is cohesive. But this gives a beautiful differentiation to the women who got you to this special day, and gifts everyone a little bit of silk luxury to make them each feel like a queen.
Let’s not forget about the men! All of your friends deserve to be wrapped up in a little luxury and our men’s kimono robes offer a perfect opportunity to do just that. Our fan favorite Peony & Butterfly Kimono Robe comes in a classic black that many of our male customers love. It also comes in a variety of fabrics — Charmeuse, Washable Silk, and Plus Size — making it a versatile piece to style all of your bridal party. Our men’s kimono robes use the traditional T-shaped kimono cut for the fabric, meaning there are no shoulder seams. This allows someone with extra broad shoulders to seamlessly slip into these beautiful men’s kimono robes without worrying about stretching the seams.
Perhaps you’re keeping your bridal party small — it’s a great way to honor your bestie. You may be getting married, but she’ll always be your best friend. Whether you’re wearing matching plus size kimono robes, short kimono robes, or silk kimono robes, you and your maid of honor can pick out a style that you both adore. Like a grown up version of the friendship bracelet! If you’re different sizes, there are plenty of plus size kimono robe options and plenty of long and short kimono robes that you can match by style and color. Find your (and your bestie’s) favorite for an unforgettable wedding day gift.
The beautiful yuri or lily flower makes a gorgeous addition to your wedding day. Lilies can be worked into the floral design of your wedding in so many ways: in bouquets, over archways, on the table, on your invitations, and our favorite way, in silk kimono robes for your bridal party. Not only do lilies represent the ideas of devotion and 100 years of love, but they also symbolize royalty and wisdom. Your bridal party is the collection of friends and family who are like royalty to you, who have offered you their own wisdom throughout the years,and have always been loyal and devoted to you. Dressing the people you admire and love in a silk kimono robe is the perfect way to make them feel like royalty.
