A few months ago, we were going over some of the best bridal party shots we’ve seen in a while, and realized just how many of them included some sort of girl squad dress code - a robe, a PJ set, bathing suits (if the bridal suite just happened to have a pool out back, NBD). It’s almost like without the getting-ready getups, did the wedding morning even happen?! Obvi it did and it does, but without the ladies in pretty-looking loungewear, the whole picture feels like it’s lacking. So, we’ll make a bold statement by saying that if you want those epic bridesmaids photos, you besstttt not forget about those wearable gifts for your girls. Luckily, we’re pretty tight with a brand that’s had loungewear on lock since 2011, and we’re pretty sure Love Ophelia is personally responsible for all the best party pics currently out there on the Gram.
You can soooo feel the love
Just to recap, Love Ophelia is a loungewear line for brides and gals who love love.

And robes aren’t the only option
Yes, robes have become the go-to for most brides to gift their tribe, but they’re not the only choice. Love Ophelia has some of the prettiest robes around, and we’re ALL about the amount of colors and prints they all come in - in addition to the silkier selections for the bride herself. Buttttt, what we’re really into are their rompers.
Available in literally a 🌈of shades - to match any wedding color palette - these one-pieces are so cute and soooo fun. We thought of a few other reasons why you might be obsessed with them, too
They feel a little more playful.
LBH, robes are ridiculously royal-feeling - they definitely make any occasion feel super special, if you’re wearing one. But they’re also a little more uniform-feeling. TOTALLY okay if that’s the look you’re going for, polished and pristine, but rompers feel a bit more youthful, relaxed, and like you’re ready to party. Not to mention, they kind of allow their wearers to show off more of their personality.
They’re more comfortable to wear in front of the camera.

Whether you’ve got undies going on underneath or are going commando, you can’t help but feel like robes are more intimate, right? And if you have a few girls who are a bit more camera shy, they might not feel 100p comfortable having their pic taken with just a robe on. That’s why a romper is fab. Especially if you want some of those candid shots like this - #handlingthathandstand.
They come in handy for post-wedding hookups.
Once the booze is flowing and the dance floor is poppin’, wedding night hookups can happen. And a newly-gifted romper can certainly come in clutch for a sleepover situation… just sayin’!! Your secret’s safe with us 🤐
