My husband & I have been together for ten years and travelled the world and lived overseas together but we decided to get married in one of our favourite places, Bangalow. It is a tiny town just south of Byron Bay in New South Wales, Australia. We got ready at two separate houses in Byron Bay and held our wedding at The Bangalow A&I Hall and Showgrounds. We had a relaxed DIY wedding with most of our vendors/suppliers being friends and family. My Bridesmaids were my older sister and one of my oldest friends. I also got one of your robes for my mum to wear while we got our hair and makeup done. Like most brides I searched for the perfect gift that they could keep and would actually want to have. I searched all the department stores and could never find the perfect ones. One day I saw the Style Me Pretty competition to win a robe and I could not believe it when I was chosen. The robe was so soft and luxurious that I just had to get three more for my bridesmaids and my mum! They were so excited when I presented them with their gorgeous robes they couldn’t get them on quick enough. The material is so soft and breathable it was perfect for a warm spring day in Australia. Some of my favourite memories of the day, besides the feeling of being married, were sitting around getting pampered and made up in our robes, sipping champagne, and reading my vows to my bridesmaids before the ceremony practising so I wouldn’t cry! Sara it was such a pleasure dealing with you, it was so easy and the robes arrived in plenty of time for our day. Thank you so much for your assistance.

After helping brides, for years, select the perfect robe combinations for their weddings, I was thrilled to be picking out robes for my own big day. While I usually gravitate towards darker colors, when it came time for me to choose, I felt that the pastels worked perfectly for my spring Wine-Country wedding. Spending the day getting ready in beautiful, comfy, robes, with friends that I’ve had since childhood, was the ideal way to spend the hours leading up to the wedding. Everyone was so comfortable and relaxed around me, that I felt completely calm and was able to fully enjoy the pre-wedding fun.

My wedding was up in Hudson NY in a big barn this past summer. Like many other brides, I had been searching for the perfect gift and really liked the idea of a robe—but many of them were poorly made. I reached out to Sara at Doie Lounge and she was fantastic to work with—helping me pick styles and spoke with me about the fabrics used. When the robes arrived I packaged them in gold boxes and put them on the bed of each recipient at the bed and breakfast we were staying at. My bridesmaids, mom, and mother in law were all so excited to receive them and kept complimenting the soft fabric quality.

We all felt so pampered and posh in our robes and it was so much fun to get ready wearing them. Obviously, at the actual wedding, everyone loves to comment on the dress, but I am so incredibly lucky because some of my most special moments happened before I even had my wedding dress on, and instead happened in my Doie Lounge robe! Getting ready with my mom, bridesmaids and friends, exchanging notes with my soon-to-be-husband, and reading his words to me—were all moments that happened in my robe. We even had some (looking back on it) funny moments happen while wearing them—like when my fiancé announced that he had lost his tux—and everyone was frantically running around in our robes looking for his outfit! Then my mom started screaming she found it—and the photographer perfectly captured that moment—tux and robe—together.

I know as my friends and family members start to get married I will be highly recommending these robes as gift ideas—or just gift ideas in general! They were a great find and spectacular quality!

Our wedding was on June 6, 2015 at Brookside Country Club. For months I had been searching for the perfect robes to give my bridesmaids as gifts, and I was so excited when my mom found Doie Lounge! The robes are perfect! They are so soft and comfortable and were perfect to relax in while getting ready for such a big day. My bridesmaids loved them and still tell me how they wear their robes all the time. Sara was very helpful with coordinating colors and patterns, and the robes arrived in a timely manner. These bridesmaid robes are a perfect gift for your girls and a treat for yourself. Thank you, Sara!

I am SO happy I purchased these beautiful bridesmaid robes – they were the perfect gift for my bridesmaids!  Sara was so incredible easy to work with and was so flexible. Everyone was in a panic about what to wear the morning of – tank top, short, yoga pants – but they were so happy to open these gifts the night before! I chose white for myself, and wanted a matching look for all my maids. I was so happy to find an almost identical, but slightly different robe for my maid of honor to wear – it helped her stand out!

The bridesmaid robes looked stunning in our photos, and were so unbelievably comfortable to wear all day. Not only were they super comfy, but they felt so luxurious! People have already begun asking where I bought them – I will be recommending these to brides left and right! Thank you Sara, for giving us the most beautiful, perfect bridesmaid robes!

Happy New Year

After Googling beautiful robes for days I came across someone claiming Doie Lounge robes were amazing. I checked out the website and sure enough, fell in love with these robes. Unfortunately, at the time shipping to Australia was a little tricky. Sara was extremely helpful and made sure we got our robes for our New Year’s Eve wedding.

I have not had a better experience in dealing with a company direct about their products, than this. The robes are so soft and comfy. We loved getting ready in these and lounging around relaxing on the day. A huge “thank you” to Sara who made it possible for us to have these in Australia for our wedding day.

Whit and I were married at the Rose Hall Great House in Montego Bay, Jamaica in February of 2013 (the best time to escape a Chicago winter!)  95 of our friends and family joined us in Jamaica for the most memorable, fun-filled weekend.  When Whit and I were deciding on gifts for our bridal party we wanted to give them all really special gifts after all they were doing for us!  Doie Lounge bridesmaid robes were perfect.  I really had never seen anything like them, and I can’t even describe how comfy they are (I wear mine EVERY SINGLE DAY when I am getting ready, my husband jokes that I live in it, and he’s pretty much telling the truth!)

My bridesmaids absolutely loved these robes, and it was so fun to get ready in the bridesmaid robes all together.  My little sister called me last week and said thank you again for the robe as she uses it all the time (in fact she told one of her good friends to use Doie Lounge for her bridesmaid robes). It makes me so happy that it is something that the girls can wear all the time and think of our awesome wedding weekend- truly a gift that keeps on giving.

Sara was an amazing vendor to work with…she responds quickly to emails, offers great suggestions and I received the bridesmaid robes extremely quickly- I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Sara and Doie Lounge– just the best!

A Blessing to Remember

It’s hard to just say what is one thing you’ll never forget. The entire day was perfect. My sister in law Kelsy was my Matron of Honor and three of my childhood girl friends, Katie, Britanie, and Farrah flew in from all over the country to be part of this wonderful day. I gave them the beautifully handmade robes that were so cozy and delicate. We felt so pampered with them on and made us feel so special. The dramatic weather and misty rain with the sun beaming through the dark clouds just as we were saying our vows was a moment I’ll never forget. Charles and I both wrote our own vows. When we held each others hands saying the wonderful words I’ll never forget, a feeling so intimate and powerful made our connection unbreakable. Everyone we loved was there to support us. Charles’ kids were standing up by his side, along with his dear friend Tom and my brother Butch. Moments after the ceremony our guests mentioned there even was a rainbow behind us. Then the sun was out for the rest of the evening under the picturesque dinner arbor that our caterer had decorated to a “t” of my sketch. It was a dream with the flowers hanging from the wooden beams and market lights intermixed over the romantic kings table with everyone we loved surrounding us. Things like that don’t happen everyday and it was truly a blessing to remember.

There are so many details that go into planning a wedding – it is easy to get overwhelmed by all the options. When thinking about how I wanted to thank my bridal party for standing up with me for such an important day in my life, I wanted something elegant, beautiful and high-quality. I searched long and hard for bridal party robes that were appropriate for this one special occasion but also with a quality and modern style that would make them a treasured item well beyond the wedding day. As soon as I came across Doie, I knew it was exactly what I had been looking for. The quality is truly wonderful – it exceeded my expectations. Not only does it photograph beautifully but it is really a gift that you and your bridal party will cherish. I love my robe and wear it nearly every day, and my bridesmaids kept thanking me for a gift they actually liked and could use.

Sara was just wonderful to work with – she made the whole process so easy which only made the joy of opening up my beautifully packaged Doie box that much sweeter. Thanks so much, Sara, for helping to make our wedding all the more pretty and polished!
