Robes are not a required accessory but your getting-ready-photos will be some of the most cherished moments from your wedding day. Every bride should feel fabulous on her wedding day, from the very start when popping a bottle of bubbly over breakfast, to the very end of the night when making her grand exit. That’s why we are loving the trend for bridal robes to get ready in. From the classic white silk robe to a fun, personalized piece, there isn’t a shortage of options that will speak to your style and aesthetic.

Shoes are the ultimate bridal accessory and a symbol of your personality and overall mood of the wedding.
