If you have been paying attention, you must have realized there’s a new wedding trend taking rounds in the Ugandan wedding scene. That’s the wedding bridal robes. It never was a “thing” at weddings but now it is here and almost a must-have moment photo moment.
The importance of a bridal gown is not to just have pretty sexy pictures on your wedding morning, but rather something that the bride and her entourage wear as they do their hair and makeup before they wear their gowns. Bridal robes can also be enjoyed for many years after you walk down the aisle. It also works as a cover-up to protect clothing while getting ready for the big day or other pre-wedding festivities.
Secondly, don’t forget the magic of getting ready photographs. Photographers usually start their day by visiting the girls’ room where they’ll take their first photos of the day. So make sure you’re wearing something as pretty as your gown.
Most importantly, a bridal or wedding robe will make you and your girls feel beautiful and sexy. A feeling you truly need on your wedding day.
That said, many en vogue brides have been wearing satin and silk kimono robes -as the materials are light, breezy, and silky soft on the skin- but there’s a new trend arising from Africa – The Ankara (African print) bridal wedding gowns.
Like the satin and silk materials, a nice Ankara robe made of cotton material would serve an even better purpose; keeping you warm and comfortable while keeping it African.
Here are some African print or Ankara wedding bridal robes you’ll love;
