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.

Wine-Country Wedding

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!

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!

I was fortunate to have amazing sisters to stand beside me on my wedding and knew the Doie Robes would be a perfect bridesmaid 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 was so excited to give my bridesmaids these robes, I packaged up the robes along with my other bridesmaids gifts and presented the pretty boxes to my bridesmaids and mother at the rehearsal dinner. Everyone was ecstatic about the robes and the softness. I specifically looked for the softest fabric I could get and these robes are it! My bridesmaids even proclaimed they would use them for everyday loungewear, which was exactly the reason I decided to gift these robes to them. I wanted something they could have for a long time and would remind them of the day without being “bridesmaid” specific. Everyone enjoyed walking around in their robes the entire day before getting dressed. I absolutely love these robes and would highly recommend to any bride looking for the perfect bridesmaids gift. These are the perfect item to spoil your bridesmaids and mother with, they deserve it!

Primping & Pampering

Steven and I were married at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Raleigh, NC, on July 18, 2015, and our reception was at The State Club.  Everything was just beautiful and I felt like a princess all day, starting early with mimosas and plenty of primping and pampering along with my bridesmaids.  I made a great playlist of wedding themed songs, and we sang, danced, and had our hair and makeup done by Makeup For Your Day.

Way before the big day I began the search for the perfect robes to wear while we got ready.  I think I searched every website out there and looked in every lingerie department, but everything looked too short, too cheap, and nothing offered the color combinations I was looking for.  Then I came across Doie Lounge, and they were perfect!  They had tons of color combinations, they were just long enough, and the belts are sewn on so the robes actually stayed closed (and as I said, we did a lot of moving and shaking :).  Ordering was so easy and Sara stayed in touch with us through the whole process making sure we had ordered the right sizes and that we had plenty of time to receive them. She even followed up after the delivery to make sure we were happy.  And we were EXTREMELY HAPPY!  The robes are so soft and luxurious and worth every penny.  I gave the robes to my girls at the bridesmaid lunch—they loved them!  Thank you Sara for such great follow through.  I will be recommending Doie robes to all of my friends!
