It was wonderful to share our wedding day and special wedding video with you in my post yesterday. In case you missed it, be sure to check it out here. We had such a magnificent day!

I want to take you further into the day and share some of the special elements. The best place to start is, of course, the morning of our wedding. The night before my wedding day, I stayed at my family home and invited my bridal party to join me for a fun slumber party. My parents home is on the water, so we enjoyed walking down to the beach for a seafood feast at a restaurant, then came back home to watch Father of the Bride. It’s one of my favorite movies and absolutely perfect for the night before your wedding!

Before we started watching the movie, I surprised my bridesmaids and mother with a gift – these gorgeous floral robes from Papinelle! I absolutely adored them and knew they all would too… you know when you have an amazing gift for someone and get so excited to give it because you know they’ll love it? That was me for weeks before the wedding! I just couldn’t wait to give them their floral bridesmaid robes in the pretty Papinelle gift boxes. Everyone was thrilled, we all put them on straight away and watched the movie together before heading off to bed. The night before my sisters wedding she hardly slept a wink, so I took a light sleeping tablet and it worked perfectly, I slept eight hours and woke up all refreshed with nervous excitement for the big day!

Wedding Series – Papinelle Floral Bridesmaid Robes

We all loved wearing our matching robes while getting ready the morning of the wedding. When choosing robes for the girls, I really wanted something feminine but not too girly – the mix of blush pink floral with a navy background achieved this perfectly. I also want to make special mention of the tailored cut, Papinelle robes and sleepwear all have a super flattering shape that suits women beautifully. The material is a luxurious mix of silk and cotton, so they feel just beautiful against your skin.

Oh and the length, they aren’t too short! The delicate lace trimmed hem sat at knee length, which gave a stylish and sophisticated feel to these floral bridesmaid robes. When it came time to get changed for the church, no one wanted to take them off – we all said they were so pretty, the girls should just wear them to the wedding!

Since the wedding, we all enjoy wearing them at home daily. It’s such a special reminder of a wonderful day and our friendship with each other. If you’re a bride-to-be, I have to say robes are a brilliant gift for your bridal party and mother – I also definitely recommend checking out Papinelle and their beautiful collection.
