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!

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 bridesmaid 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 bridesmaid gift and they photograph really well.  Every time I wear mine it brings back so many wonderful memories!!!

Perfect Morning

Picking a color scheme was one of the first decisions I made while planning our September wedding and I went with a navy/bright pink combo.  My bridesmaids each picked their own navy style dress and all wore fuchsia colored heels and had bright pink/orange flowers.  When I stumbled upon Sara’s robes online and saw the Sadie color combination, I loved it!  It was our perfect colors and the perfect way to start off the morning of our wedding day.  I decided to give them as gifts for my bridesmaids (and mom).  The robes were so comfortable and easy to throw on the morning of (and we had an early start for a noon wedding!)  And I loved wearing the robe at our honeymoon too.

Working with Sara was wonderful.  She was so responsive with my sizing and price questions and delivered on time, even when I was in the middle of a move.  I wanted a robe for our flower girl, who is only 3 and since Sara doesn’t make robes toddler sized she pointed me to other great options and my niece fit right in with us!  I was so happy and felt so blessed to have my family and closest friends getting ready with me the morning of our special day, in the beautiful Doie robes.

Favorite Things

The robes were absolutely perfect! So comfortable and perfect to wear while getting ready. The ladies loved them. I gave them personalized hangers with their names for the bridesmaids and hangers with mother of the bride and mother of the groom for the moms, mine said Ali <3 Dylan. It was honestly one of my favorite things. I couldn’t wait to give it to them! My colors were navy, grey, with a little white and pink, so the style of the robes worked perfectly.

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!

Great Start

Craig and I were married on October 5, 2013 in Tampa Florida and I was thrilled to have my sister and 2 of my closest friends taking part in my wedding day. I really wanted to give my girls gifts that were beautiful and not something they would ordinarily buy for themselves, but also functional, both on the wedding day and everyday. I settled on luxurious spa robes. The dilemma I had was since the wedding was in Florida, it may still be pretty warm. I found the Doie robes on one of the various emails I received from wedding sites and was struck by how beautiful but how light they are. The girls loved them! The colors even matched our wedding day. I also treated my mom to a robe and got her’s just a little different to make her stand out. We all felt so pretty during hair and makeup appointments and made the whole day get off to a great start. Added bonus, my new husband loved how it look in mine!

“Rob and I were married in Longview Baptist Church in Olive Branch, MS on June 8th, 2013. I had five absolutely wonderful bridesmaids that mean the world to me. I wanted to get them something fun and unique. I found the robes through pintrest and absolutely loved them. I wanted something they weren’t expecting, could use again and that would remind them of time we shared. We spent all morning lounging in our matching robes, getting our hair and make up done. Everyone looked so cute and was so comfy. My bridesmaids and my husband love them!!! I would recommend them to any bride.”
