Coordinated Jerseys

We absolutely love the coordinated jerseys that our bride Chelsea had made for her bridesmaids. She wore a white jersey and her girls were all dressed in black. This created an edgy contrast that photographed beautifully. The cozy knee-high socks tied their look together, and we can’t imagine a more beautiful team of ladies.

One great thing about this outfit is that your bridesmaids can definitely wear it again. It’s also a personalized souvenir that they can keep forever. If you want an outfit as unique as it is comfortable, matching jerseys are fantastic getting-ready outfits.

Elegant Loungewear and PJs

For Julia’s getting-ready photos, she chose the cutest piece of white lacy loungewear for herself and had her bridesmaids in gorgeous floral silk robes. These outfits are comfortable, stylish, effortlessly chic, and perfect for playing around in front of the camera.

Monogrammed Wedding Getting Ready Outfits

Monogramming adds a touch of personalized detail to your getting-ready outfits. For Ariel’s big day, she chose these gorgeous deep blue nightshirts and had each lady’s initials beautifully embroidered into the fabric. Her choice to go with knee-length shirt dresses added a lovely feminine touch that her bridesmaids adored.

Lana’s sleek PJ sets were a similar deep blue color. The initials of her bridesmaids were also monogrammed onto the pockets. Her white robe was beautiful in its simplicity with just a delicate touch of blue for her own monogrammed initials.

Monogramming adds a special touch that turns your getting-ready outfits into meaningful keepsakes for your bridesmaids.
