The wedding took place at The Resort at Pelican Hill on April 18, 2015. I treated my seven bridesmaids, mother and mother-in-law, as well as myself to these amazing robes! Everyone was absolutely thrilled to receive incredibly soft and beautiful robes to spend the morning getting ready in. While choosing which robes to purchase, as there are so many on the market now it is almost overwhelming, I looked for something I knew everyone would look forward to wearing even after the wedding. It was important to me that the robes became a sentiment in each of their lives not just on my special day, but for years to come! We all could not have been happier with the Doie Lounge robes and I think the pictures show just how happy and beautiful the robes helped everyone feel on such an important day!

Bridesmaids & a Bridesman

Ben & I got married on the night before Thanksgiving, November 21, 2012. The weather was perfection and my bridal party were so excited to receive their beautiful Luella robes. Even better, my oldest guy friend, a bridesman, received a “scarf” of the Luella trim to match us. Although he preferred to wear it as a head scarf, I was so thrilled that Sara was able to accommodate my requests to allow my entire bridal party (bridesman included) to feel so special and match each other. I enjoyed wearing my Lilian robe as I got ready to marry my high school sweetheart and on our romantic honeymoon in Costa Rica.

“I got married on October 6 at Castleton Farms outside Knoxville Tennessee.  My husband and I dreamed of a fall mountain wedding and being from Chicago Castleton was the most convenient, but also the most breathtaking location!  Giving we had a destination wedding I wanted to get my bridesmaids, mother of the groom and my mom something extra special for getting ready on the big day.  These were the perfect robes and the girls (including my mom and the mother of the groom) LOVED them!  We stayed at the beautiful manor on the property the night before the wedding and it was the perfect thing to put on the next morning as we started the day.  A big thanks to Sara for her help in designing these one of a kind robes for me and my girls.  I will remember this very special day every time I wear my robe.”

“I married my high school sweetheart on September 2nd in Chicago, but I was already thinking about gifts for my bridesmaids way back in the spring.  I contacted Sara about sizing and she was extremely helpful (and it turns out choosing the sizes wasn’t complicated at all).  Our wedding colors were white and gray, so it was easy for me to choose the Elena for my bridesmaids (and the Lillian for myself!).  I was really pleasantly surprised by how soft the robes are.  Like all brides, I can only hope my bridesmaids will want to wear their dresses again, but I feel confident that they’ll wear their robes again!”

{Seize The Gray}

It seems as if one of this Fall’s hottest wedding colors is not even considered a color by some. Gray used to be seen as a lackluster neutral, but is now the pinnacle of glamour in today’s modern wedding.

 Gray adds the elegance of black but with out the darkness and many brides are choosing to accent the “goes-with-everything” color with pops of more traditional wedding colors such as pink and white.

I first noticed this trend when sales of our gray robes, such as the Elena and Cosette, began to increase due to the fact that the brides wanted their bridesmaid gifts to match their wedding colors. Upon further discussion, most brides revealed that they feel gray is a color that flatters almost anyone due to it’s neutral nature and it also has a slimming effect, just like black. Choosing gray for bridesmaids robes is basically a “no fail” option even for brides who didn’t care if their bridesmaid gifts matched their wedding colors.

There is really no denying the elegant nature of gray—it has an “Old Hollywood” glamorous feel and its toned down nature is enchanting without being too glitzy. I love these photos of brides who wanted their wedding parties to “seize the gray!”

“I was married on October 27, 2012 in picturesque St. Helena, California.  Getting ready for the biggest event of my life was surreal–in the best way, of course.  It was a crisp, sunny fall day.  The kind you really only get in Northern California.  I preened and primped in my family’s home nestled in the vineyards just feet from where my now husband got down on bended knee and asked for my hand the December before….I was surrounded by my two very favorite girlfriends.  One a college roommate; the other a fabulous friend who also happens to be Sara’s cousin (it was in fact Sara who had the brilliant idea of connecting us when life’s twists and turns had us both living in DC after college).  I could not imagine a more magical morning shared with more beautiful women on a more momentous day.  Being robed in Doie was by far the most special touch.  We were all so incredibly comfortable and felt so pretty.  I am forever grateful to Sara and Doie for making my pre-wedding “getting ready” hours even more amazing.  And we’ve been enjoying our robes every day since then.  Mine brings back the most wonderful memories and will for years to come!”

A Cozy Classic

posted in: Blog, realweddings | 0

“I was married on September 22, 2012 in Long Island, NY, the first official day of fall and I knew it would be starting to get a little cooler so I wanted to find something simple, classic and cozy to find for my bridesmaids to wear while we were getting ready and relaxing. I came across these robes on the Style Me Pretty blog last year and they were the first wedding related purchase I made! The robes were backordered but when I emailed Sara, she responded immediately and informed me of the date the robes would be shipped and they showed up right on time…they matched my color scheme and looked great on everyone. I was hoping that the girls would be able to wear them in their everyday life and was so happy when I saw the robe on my maid of honors bathroom door when I visited her new apartment! They are the perfect gift!”
