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!!!

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!

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 bridesmaid 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 bridesmaid robes 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 bridesmaid 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!!

Special Day

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!!

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 Doie Robes were the absolute perfect compliment to my wedding day – so soft, so comfortable and the perfect attire for a day of pampering and champagne. My bridesmaids adored them, and I for one have been living in mine ever since. I never was one to travel with a robe, but my Doie robe is so soft and special, it even made it into my backpack to Africa. Thank you Sara and Doie!”

Ice Day For A Wedding

“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.
