Bridal robes are not the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to preparing for your wedding day. But during your wedding day, it’s a beautiful piece to wear as you prepare for the memorable day ahead. When you are getting ready, you need to be in a clothing item that allows for your glam team to do makeup and hair on you. It’s also a luxurious piece while your photographer takes getting-ready shots. It’s no wonder many brides-to-be take the time in choosing the bridal robe to wear on their big day.
Let’s look at some exquisite bridal robe pieces from a remarkable designer, Amanda Barden. She is a Sydney-based designer who specialises in bespoke, elegant robes for brides and bridesmaids. The utility of bridal robes goes beyond honeymoon, as it can still be useful once a woman begins yet another chapter in life. Choosing a bespoke bridal robe will prove to be an investment, thanks to its timeless elegance and function among women.
Different Types of Robes
- Satin Robes
Bridesmaids robes made from satin are a perfect combination of opulence and comfort. Apart from the inherent luxury of satin, it also carries a few features such as being hypoallergenic in nature and highly breathable, so you don’t have to worry about excessive sweating while getting ready on your wedding day or taking photos with bridesmaids.
Other benefits of opting for satin robes are as follows:
The lightweight satin fabric can absorb up to 30% of its weight.
Satin tends to air-dry quicker than other types of fabrics used for bridal robes such as cotton and terry robes.
- Soil and odour-resistant
The last thing you want is to smell not-so-pleasant on your special day. Satin naturally repels bad odours so you smell fresh all day long.
Depending on your needs or preferences, you can customise the colour and design elements of your bridal robe. You can add initials on your satin robe or customise the colour based on your motif.
- Celeste is the perfect mix of luxurious beauty and effortless sensuality. The satin robe boasts a soft flowing base and stunning arm gathers. It’s everything that you desire to keep things elegant but still romantic without revealing too much skin.
One of the major selling points of ordering bespoke satin robes is that you can choose from various robe styles. You are not limited to premade designs and work closely with the designer. For instance, you can request to have spa robes not only for you but for your bridesmaids, too. You can choose to have them made from pure cotton or a robe with a touch of satin. Satin fabric is typically designed as kimono robes. This design features the comfortable quality of spa robes and the tailored fit of wrap robes. Kimono bridal robes usually feature full sleeves and are knee-length.
With exquisite elements of light and shade, nothing can be more feminine than a lace robe. One of the special qualities of robes is the amount of fabric used in their manufacturing. A lot of fabric goes into the making of a bespoke robe, and it can be used in combination with other fabrics such as mesh and tulle or added depth.
Combining lace and sheer is always a sophisticated choice, especially for brides-to-be and bridesmaids, too. They are lightweight, transparent, and very romantic, too. You can wear it under your lingerie or layer it with a silk chemise or pyjamas if you are planning to use it for a photoshoot in the morning of the wedding day.
