{Getting Ready In Style}

“I am so happy with the robes I purchased from Doie Lounge! They were presented to my matrons of honor and bridesmaids with big bows on the nice white hanger bags that were sent with the robes. They are so soft and comfortable and very well made. I ordered the white one which came I brought with me to Santorini as loungewear on the honeymoon! We shared glasses of champagne and got ready in style as we got our hair and makeup done in the bridal suite. Thanks for making my big day so special!”

I had a small wedding party, just a maid and matron of honor, and I wanted to make them each a great “goodie bag”.  I am so thankful I came across Doie Lounge in my gift search.  I immediately loved the classy designs and beautiful colors (light aqua is my FAVORITE, so I just had to have it), and decided to immediately purchase a robe for each of my girls and myself.  I was glad to find something that wasn’t the “standard” monogrammed terry or waffle.  It was so nice to have something beautiful and comfortable to wear while we were lounging, drinking champagne, and getting ready on my wedding day.  My girls loved them and both commented that the design and weight was ideal and they were pumped to be taking them home.  Personally, I wear mine every day while getting ready.  Also, after seeing the great New Mom pics on the Doie website, I will be be sure to bring my beautiful robe with me to hospital room when we have babies!

Sara was great to work with and kept in touch throughout the whole process.  One of my ordered items was temporarily out of stock, and she immediately contacted me to see if I wanted to change items.  I had plenty of time before my wedding, so waiting was not an issue, but I definitely appreciated that she checked in.  While the tag suggests dry cleaning, I have had success machine washing and lying flat to dry, which makes it very convenient.

“I was fortunate to have amazing sisters to stand beside me on my wedding and knew the Doie Robes would be a perfect gift.  I picked a variety of colors that would fit their personalities and I chose my favorite color, blue, so I could continue to wear it after the wedding.  They were the perfect attire for the relaxing morning and everyone looked beautiful in the robes with lovely Maui in the background.  I was so excited to find these robes and working with Sara made it easy and stress free.”

“I wish that I had known about Sara Kirsner and her Doie Lounge robes from the moment I became engaged … it would have saved me months and months of agonizing over the perfect bridesmaids gifts. I was seeking just the right token for my favorite girls that I said “I appreciate you. I cherish you. I love you.” I wanted something that the girls could use for many years to come.  Sara’s robes were just that perfect gift. What was even more perfect was that I had no trouble selecting the colors as the the “elena” and “cosette” matched the wedding color scheme perfectly.  When I received the robes in the mail, in their lovely garment bags, I was delighted with the quality and luxury of the fabrics. These robes are so incredibly soft and cozy.

Geoff and I were married on the day that the first ice storm of 2013 decided to show up.  December 8, 2013, in Fairfax, VA. I was fortunate enough to have all of my five bridesmaids beside me all day as we prepared for the wedding.  The girls were presented with robes at our rehearsal dinner and they all arrived the day of the wedding, in their robes, ready for a morning of pampering and relaxation.

Sara was a dream to work with.  I was lucky to have reached out to her well in advance as the robes I was interested in were on back order … I certainly understand why they are so popular.  Sara got in touch with me immediately after placing my order to assure me that I would have my robes in plenty of time for our special day. When I received the order, Sara followed up with me regularly to make certain I was satisfied.  I was more than satisfied.  They were exquisite.

The robes photographed beautifully. I could not have been more pleased with the final product.  I wear my robe every morning and have gotten so many compliments from my bridesmaids who still enjoy wearing the robes.

Brendan and I got married at Castle Hill Inn in Newport, RI on October 18, 2013.  We wanted a Fall New England wedding and it was the most magical day!  When I met Sara a year before our wedding, I knew these robes would be the perfect gift for my ladies and of course I had to get one for myself (Sadie’s my favorite).  The morning of the wedding, they were hanging up in Doie garment bags with a special note for each of them when they walked into the room.  It was really fun getting ready all together in our robes!  They are so soft and cozy and something that we’ll have for a long time.  Bonus…the girls were able to wear them over their dresses without revealing them to anyone on our way out of the hotel to the ceremony.

Sara is awesome and so easy to work with!  I highly recommend these robes because they’re such a thoughtful and useful gift and they photograph really well.  Every time I wear mine it brings back so many wonderful memories!!!

“My husband Brent and I were married on May 31, 2013 at the St. Regis Princeville on the beautiful island of Kauai. We were fortunate enough to have 30 of our closest friends and family members join in our wedding celebration and the day could not have been any more perfect.

Brent and I wanted to create a wedding that was clean and classy, yet relaxed and tropical. I was struggling with something to get my bridesmaids as a token of my appreciation for being part of our wedding when I came across the Doie robes online. I knew they were perfect the moment I saw them and fit the style of our wedding overall. I was overjoyed that Sara was able to get the handmade robes to me in plenty of time for me to transport them to Hawaii.

My bridal party included my twin sister Hillary, older sister Alison, and my best friend Sara. I gave them the robes the night before the wedding. They each wore the robes while getting ready in the room at the St Regis before the wedding and could not believe that the robes were as soft and comfortable as they are while still looking great.  They also made it super easy to transition from getting ready clothes to wedding dresses without messing up our hair.

When I received my photos from the wedding, I was again impressed with appearance of the robes in the photographs. They look beautiful on everyone and I would not have changed a single thing about them. I have used my robe many times since the wedding, not only on our honeymoon, but also at home and while traveling and think of the special occasion it represents each time I put it on.  I would definitely recommend these robes to brides looking for a fun, thoughtful, and useful present for their bridesmaids!”

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 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 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’s gifts). 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 robes extremely quickly- I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Sara and Doie Lounge– just the best!

Greg & I were married in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic on January 16, 2013.  We were so very fortunate to have 65 of our closest family and friends join us and we had an amazing time spending the week with them all.  Although it rained our ENTIRE wedding day we refused to let it get us down and had such a great night we were all still dancing at 3 am!

I wanted to get my bridesmaids something that they could also use after the wedding and when I came across these robes I knew they were exactly what I was looking for.  They were perfect for lounging around in the suite while we were getting our hair and makeup done and were awesome to have with us for the rest of the vacation. I highly recommend these to destination brides!  We all used them throughout the entire week and I already know it will be coming with me to Thailand on our 1 year anniversary trip.  The quality of the robes is amazing, they are so soft and even after washing they look like new.  They are the perfect mix of sexy, comfy and pretty and I know I will use it for years to come.  Sara you’re the best!!

I got ready at the Four Seasons in San Francisco with my bridal party the morning of the wedding. Each bridesmaid was surprised with a robe upon entry into the suite. What a fun and unique way it was to thank my “maids” for being a part of this special day! They all looked stylish, and each robe brought out their individual personalities. We had such a great time in these robes taking candid pictures, with our amazing photographers, that we almost forgot to get ready for the wedding! I know each bridesmaid will cherish their robe for years to come, as I know I will… One of my fondest memories of the day is getting ready with my girls in our robes together. It was such a beautiful day!

David and I were married at TPC Jasna Polana in Princeton, New Jersey on May 18th, 2013. I had seven bridesmaids, and I knew that I wanted to find them comfortable and beautiful robes to wear while we were getting ready. I discovered Doie Lounge and Sara through the Style Me Pretty blog, and I couldn’t have been happier with my decision to go with the Elena robes for my bridesmaids. Our wedding colors were green, white, and gray, so the colors were perfect. I loved them so much that I ordered a white one for myself! The fabric was so soft, and the inside tie makes sure your robe stays where it belongs! Sara answered my questions quickly, and it was a pleasure to work with her.

Mike and I were married at the Liberty House in Jersey City, NJ on April 6, 2013.   Our venue was right on the water and had the most spectacular views of Manhattan.  We were married outside with the city as our back scape; it was the ideal spring day.  Our entire wedding weekend was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for anything more! 

My bridesmaids gifts were definitely something that I put a lot of thought into.  My girls mean the world to me and have always gone above and beyond, not just during the wedding process.  I wanted their thank you gifts to be ones that were truly special and something that really showed how much I value and appreciate them in my life.  I always knew I wanted robes to be a part of the gift, it was just a matter of finding the “right” ones.  When I came across Doie Lounge robes, not only were the pictures gorgeous, but every one of the reviews were nothing but fantastic.  I was sold.  To top it off, working with Sara was effortless and enjoyable – she was responsive, so accommodating and helpful and simply, just pleasant!

And of course, the robes…those spoke for themselves! Everyone LOVED LOVED LOVEDDD the robes!!!  They were all so happy to not have to worry about what to wear while getting ready and also to have such an incredible new robe they could wear after the wedding!  They all couldn’t get over how soft and comfy and pretty they are!  Of course, I was very impressed and pleased as well.  It is now a staple in my wardrobe and even came along with me on our honeymoon!  The number of compliments I have received on the robes are countless (even based on pictures alone).  I continue to recommend Sara to everyone I meet (bride or not)!  Thank you so so much for everything!!

{Beautiful Robes For Beautiful Bridesmaids}

“I am SO happy I purchased these beautiful 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 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 gifts!”
