Getting ready on your wedding morning is of course, a really special time. The excitement and the nerves are all calmed with a glass of fizz and having your best girls around you. It’s a really nice touch to have something special to sit around in while you’re getting ready and a lightweight robe is perfect if you’re getting married abroad, as the warm and heavy dressing gowns supplied by hotels will leave you melting in the sunshine.

 

There’s been a blossoming trend recently not only for floral bridesmaid dresses but also for floral print bridesmaid robes for the maids and the bride to wear on the wedding morning. So, if you’re looking for a single robe just for yourself to wear on your big day, or maybe you’re looking for floral print robes for all of your bridesmaids,  or possibly you are a bridesmaid and you think that a pretty petal robe could make a lovely gift for the bride-to-be, then here’s a roundup of the best floral print bridesmaid robes for the bride and her besties.

If you’re not into palm prints, you should head out and enjoy the sunshine this morning as the blog is awash with nothing but pretty, pretty palm trees!

You may remember the prediction made way back in January (when showing the pink palm outfit seen below from Primark) that the palm tree print trend was going to be sizzling this season? Well, for everyone who is a sucker for the tropical tree print you’ll be glad to know that the fashion forecast came true..

 

This playful pattern is perfect for sunshiny summer days at home or your holiday, destination wedding, or honeymoon wardrobe. With so much palm pretty out there, it was certainly a challenge to keep this feature to a manageable size, but here’s what made the High Street hotlist.

 

Click on the link below each image to purchase this resort-wear online but as always, be quick as these gorgeous buys won’t be around for long.

 

Oh and if you are wondering where the sun kissed swimwear is, there’s so many seriously sunny styles out there that they deserve a whole feature to themselves…and that’s for another day!
