Calm & Classy

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 bridesmaid 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 bridesmaid 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 bridesmaid robes while getting ready in the room at the St Regis before the wedding and could not believe that the bridesmaid 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 bridesmaid 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 bridesmaid robes to brides looking for a fun, thoughtful, and useful present for their bridesmaids!

The Doie robes were the perfect bridesmaid gift. I was such a fan of them that I bought one for myself in white. These bridesmaid robes are beyond comfortable (the bamboo jersey  is so soft) and also look very luxurious! The robes look much better in pictures than sweatpants/tank tops do!

The navy blue/pink color combo is my favorite. The robes were so nice to get ready in looked great in pictures! I would highly recommend these bridesmaid robes to any bride-to-be for herself and her Bridesmaids. I have actually received a few emails from soon-to-be brides asking where I got these bridesmaid robes. They are gifts that can actually be used for a long time and your friends/family members will always remember your special day when they wear their robes!

I wear mine all the time. I even brought it on my Honeymoon!

Thank you, Doie!

Blue Ridge Beauties

“Jonny & I got married on September 24, 2011, at Pippin Hill, a beautiful vineyard in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia. My bridesmaids and I enjoyed my last night as a single girl with a sleepover at the Boar’s Head Inn. When everyone woke up the morning of the big day, I asked the girls to climb into one of the bigger beds, still in their PJs and bleary eyed from our celebration the night before. I brought them each a different colored gift box. I had written personalized letters to each of my maids, and after reading, they unwrapped their matching Doie Lounge robes. They couldn’t have been more excited! No one could resist putting on their robe immediately – in fact, we traveled from the Inn to the venue in just our robes! They made for a great outfit to relax in while getting our hair and makeup done – as well as enjoying some pre-ceremony bubbly! – and made it so easy for them to transition into their bridesmaid dresses – and me into my gown.”

The Prefect Treat

“I was looking for the perfect treat for my special bridesmaids to thank them for all the love and support they have given to me. When I came across Doie Lounge robes I knew I’d found the perfect gift! On May 26th, my wedding day, my bridesmaids all rose early with me to go on a nice relaxing jog. After our jog we all took showers and slipped into our robes to enjoy a beautiful brunch and a really relaxing few hours before the big celebration. They day was perfect and the lovely (and so comfy) robes were a bit hit! And a big thanks to Sara, for the excellent customer service!”

Ladies Luncheon

“Our wedding day was incredible! We got married in the Texas Hill Country just outside of Austin on May 27, 2012. It was such a blessing to be surrounded by our favorite people during this special time. I gave these adorable Doie robes to my bridesmaids at my bridesmaid’s luncheon the day before the wedding. They were such a hit with my girls and the perfect touch when getting ready before the wedding. I know we will be wearing these robes for years to come – my pregnant bridesmaid is already talking about wearing hers while in the hospital when her little girl arrives!”

“One of my favorite things about getting married was having all of our favorite people together, for one very special evening.  And I love that I got to start the day with a fabulous rooftop luncheon for my best friends and close family.  My mother surprised us all with the beautiful Doie Lounge robes so we could primp and lunch in comfort and style!”

Something Blue

“This robe was a gift from my new sister Jenny! I loved it so much the minute she gave it to me that I couldnt wait a few months to wear it on my big day so I started wearing it immediately! It’s so soft…its like second skin and it’s so cute that I wish I could wear it out and about. My now “Husband” used to hate my old robe and even he loves this one. I wear it all the time and loved wearing it on my wedding day. It’s comfy but makes you feel good! It’s a little slice of heaven that everyone can have. Best gift for fam or friends or to spoil yourself with!”

The Perfect Gift

posted in: Blog, realweddings | 0

“I had high expectations for my bridesmaids gifts: I wanted to give something beautiful yet practical, something to be treasured but also to be used. So I was excited to come across a post on Martha Stewart’s wedding blog suggesting Doie Lounge robes as bridesmaids gifts. I loved that the robes are navy–the color of my bridesmaids’ dresses–and that I could give each one a robe with a different patterned trim. I loved the idea of these robes so much that I decided I had to have the white one for my own. My girls and I felt so luxurious getting ready in our robes on the day of the wedding. Thanks, Sara, for being so easy to work with, and for providing the perfect bridesmaid gift!”

Luxurious Lounging

“Easy glamor AND luxurious comfort… what every bride should have on her wedding day, and that’s just what the Doie robe provides.  I felt special and effortlessly put together while getting ready for my big day, and the robe was perfect for lounging during my honeymoon.  And now, whether I’m sipping coffee on a lazy morning or doing makeup before a big night out, I still get that same fabulous feeling when I slip into my robe.”
