What size should I get for each of my Bridesmaids?
We offer two sizes in our range of Bridesmaid robes that covers most body sizes and shapes. You can find detailed sizing information on our Bridesmaid robe sizes page.
Can I exchange if I purchased the wrong size?
Absolutely! Before you purchase we do suggest reading our bridesmaid robes size page and asking any questions prior to purchase, but if you need to exchange that is no problem. Simply go to our Returns, Exchange and Shipping page for details on how to swap over your item(s).
Should I try and match my robes to my wedding colour theme?
That is completely up to you! We offer a large colour range so if you want to match, you will be able to find the perfect colour. However it really is a personal decision. Bridesmaid robes are worn prior to the wedding for photos, so there is no problems with colour clashes as your bridesmaid dresses and accents at the actual wedding day won’t be seen in the same photos as the robes (unless you are photographing the dresses in the pre wedding photos of course!)
Should I get all the same colour, or a different colour for the Bride?
Again, this is a personal preference and entirely up to you. We find most of our brides purchase one colour for their bridesmaids and another colour for themselves.
I want to get more gifts for my Bridesmaid, what should I get?
We did some market research with real brides and wrote a blog post about just that! You can read it here.
We always suggest sticking to your budget and not trying to compare with other people. Remember it is the thought that counts and your bridesmaids are honoured to be a part of your big day
Can I iron my Bridesmaid Robes?
You absolutely can! We strongly suggest it to get them photo ready! This is how we iron the robes for our photo shoots:
Always test your iron on a small patch of fabric on a non-noticeable spot on the robe to check the heat seating! We use a medium setting and they iron out beautiful, smooth and crinkle free. This is how we do it for our photo shoots:
– Iron back of robe first.
– Do each arm next, laying it flat on the ironing board and just getting the front of the robe
– Do each side of front of robe, one side on ironing board at a time
– If you want, you can also iron the belt.
IMPORTANT! DO NOT IRON LACE!
Can they be machine washed?
Yes they can, but due to the delicate and intricate nature of the lace we suggest using a washbag. Washing on a gentle cycle and washing with like colours. Cold/warm only, not hot.
How far out from the wedding should I order my Bridesmaid Robes?
This really depends on how organised you are and when you want to give them to your bridesmaids. We just suggest allowing at least 2-5 weeks out to allow for shipping times and any exchanges that need to happen. We always try to have ample stock of all colours, however during busy wedding seasons, our robes sell FAST! So if you do know what colours you would like, we suggest ordering as soon as you know and then it is one less thing to worry about!
Your robes are such good value, how is this possible??
We take great pride in providing high quality bridesmaids robes at affordable prices. Our robes are exclusively designed by Hey LuLu! in Australia and are made using the highest quality, heavy weight satin and lace. Our robes cost the same as other brands to produce, we just consciously decided to make our prices lower and with less margin as we realise that bridesmaid robes are an important part of your wedding day, however they are only one of many parts. Weddings are expensive and costs add up, we wanted the growing trend of Bridesmaid robes used for pre wedding photos to be available to as many brides as possible to make your wedding day as special and as beautiful as you dreamed it to be.
