Being with your nearest and dearest on the morning of your wedding day is a special treat. Want to know what can make it even more memorable (and picture-perfect)? Matching getting-ready outfits for the mother of the bride or groom (not to mention your bridal party, too!). From robes and PJ sets to sleepshirts and rompers, we've gathered the chicest styles that'll have these important women in your life looking and feeling great at the start of your big day.

Maybe you've already found getting-ready looks for your bridesmaids to wear, but you're after something different for your mom and soon-to-be mother-in-law. Or, perhaps you're searching for a style that can work for your entire crew, including yourself! Either way, you're in the right place. We've included a variety of stylish options in our edit that are ideal for prewedding activities like hair and makeup, sipping mimosas and relaxing, and—of course—picture taking. Getting-ready outfits will make candid pics and group shots look even more stunning.

Before you start shopping, keep in mind that button-down styles will keep freshly done hair and makeup intact and make changing into wedding wear a breeze. So with that said, check out our favorite getting-ready looks for MOBs and MOGs below.
