A popular wedding trend turned tradition is that of the bride gifting her bridesmaids with a robe or cover-up — usually monogrammed — to wear while being pampered the day of the wedding. This simple, yet practical gesture is not only great for a bridesmaid gift, but also gives the bridesmaids a reusable memento from the day.
The site Plum Pretty Sugar has a section dedicated to finding the best attire for your ladies. You can mix-and-match styles and designs to find just the right look for each of your bridesmaids.
A couple of our favorite patterns are “Vivette Encounters a Lark” and “Anais Ponders a Poet” from the Plum Pretty Sugar for BHLDN collection. Other sets include brighter patterns, longer silhouettes, a resort collection and a retro-inspired line.
The company also offers rompers and boyfriend shirt sets ranging in the various patterns as well.
Give these items true Southern flair by adding in your maid’s monograms or names onto the garments you choose. These will give them a personal touch that your bridesmaids will treasure forever.
You can find many monogramming shops locally. Monogram Express on Veterans Boulevard in Metairie and Design a Latte on Severn Avenue in Metairie both offer custom monogramming and embroidery services.
