We all love monograms and what could be better than the new one you’ll be wearing with your new initials? I love this idea because it will probably be the first thing that you’ll have with your new name but it’s also a great keepsake. Your bridesmaids will also enjoy having their special something to wear monogrammed. You can put it on a pajama set, a men’s shirt, or even a rob. Whatever you choose it will be great for a photo op!

3. Spell It Out
There aren’t many occasions that call for a “bride” robe so you may as well enjoy it while it lasts! Have your “bride” robe and your girls can sport a little something that spells out their duties. Etsy is a fabulous place to get these sets along with Victoria’s Secret.
