What to Have your Bridesmaids Wear Instead of Robes

American Eagle Rompers 

I think I put a lot more thought into what I wanted my bridesmaids to wear than normal - I contemplated and contemplated! I have been in several weddings and have worn everything from oversized mens shirts to robes. All of those were fine and dandy, BUT I hardly wear them. Y'all can see in the photos - I chose to get rompers for my girls to wear, but why? It's not super original for my bridesmaids to wear rompers, but I had my reasons. Here's why!

-Cute. Rompers have been trending for a while, so that's not new; however, I really don't see many people wearing them to get ready for weddings. They are super cute and photograph well, which was a requirement for me.

-Comfy. I meannnn you don't want to wear something all day that isn't comfy - you'll probably be in heels all night anyway, so why put yourself through stuff like that during the day?!

-Hmu. That's hair and make-up for all you non industry peeps;) You want to wear something that won't mess up your hair and make-up when you take it off to put your dress - rompers fit that bill and they're not a button down;)

-Reusable. I'm ALL about versatility. I wanted to gift my girls something that they could re-wear. They can wear these rompers really anywhere in the summer or on a beach vacation!

 

So there you have it - I definitely recommend rompers for your bridesmaids! i was originally inspired by the Show me your mumu long sleeve rompers, buuuut those weren't in the budget. What do you think? Do you have any other ideas besides the traditional options?
