In the subject of wedding preparations, the bridal gown and the entourage, among many others, come first on the priority list (and very rightfully so, of course). There’s this one major detail, however, that brides-to-be tend to overlook but really shouldn’t, and that’s none other than the bridal robe.

As a bride, you deserve to feel like a queen on the day of your wedding, and that begins the very second you wake up from your beauty slumber. What better way to feel at your daintiest and most beautiful than to slip into a romantic bridal robe made of the finest silk while sitting in the makeup chair and getting all dolled up? Not to mention, if you’re after a blissfully picturesque wedding album and SDE video, it’s the one thing you'll need to nail those behind-the-scene photos.
Take your cue from Preview Fashion Director Daryl Chang. Before walking down the aisle, the “not-so-anti-bride” got ready in her silk charmeuse Natori robe adorned with floral appliques that complemented her black Aquazzura steppers.

Rima’s robe was a work of La Tercera, an online-based brand for custom bridalwear. It’s also the go-to supplier of local celebrity brides including Heart Evangelista, Marian Rivera, Nikki Gil, and Isabel Oli.

A month ago, Solenn Heussaff also flew a custom-made bridal robe to France for her wedding. The celebrity bride wore a mint green Boom Sason dressing gown while her glam team worked on her hair and makeup.

Go for a precious designer robe or an equally delicate off-the-rack piece. Whatever you fancy, make sure it gives you the royal treatment you deserve on your big day—that, and priceless picture-perfect moments!
