Doie Lounge robes for bridesmaids

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!

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.

“We all got ready at the Ritz in downtown Philly, it was really fun to be with all my favorite ladies for my last morning as a single girl (and no one else could have kept me calm like they did). The wedding was so great and the girls and moms all loved their robes!”

{A Vision in White…} And Pink

When Michelle first got in touch with me about purchasing Doie Lounge Robes for her bridesmaids, she had a vision… and that vision differed from the options shown on the website. I’m always open to suggestions and ideas from brides, especially when it comes to mixing and matching the robe colors and trims, so I was excited to hear her ideas.

Michelle loved the Gemma robe, but she envisioned it in black, instead of navy. It was a bold choice— black and hot pink are very strong colors together, but she was unwavering in her decision and it paid off. The robes came out looking amazing and her ladies loved them!

She then wanted to take it a step further and add the same fuchsia pink bonsai trim to her white robe! I loved that she was willing to take a chance and veer away from the more traditional Lilian robe. The shot of color was a great complement to Michelle’s spark-plug personality, not to mention it looked so cute with her bridesmaids robes!

Stay tuned, we might just have a “Michelle” robe coming soon…

{Giveaway Winner} Alyssa Perri

Congratulations to Alyssa Perri, the winner of a Lilan robe from our contest with Style Me Pretty, NYC! I couldn’t wait to let Alyssa know that she had won the robe, but I was even more excited to hear the story behind her relationship and engagement. Read her story below and check out the adorable photos.

“My fiancé, Ed Leach, and I have been best friends for 10 years and have been dating for about 5 years. Being such great friends for so long before we started dating, really laid an amazing foundation for our relationship.
Our favorite place to be is at the beach. Ed proposed to me during sunset on the beach in Cape May, NJ. He had the ring for an entire year and I had no idea!! Following suit with our love for the beach, we had our engagement pictures taken in Long Beach Island, NJ, and we will also be getting married there in September 2013.”

{Giveaway Winner} Lilly Wilton

My favorite part about doing a giveaway is informing the winner that she’s won. I love hearing their stories and sharing in their excitement. We recently did a giveaway, for a Doie Lounge Lilian robe,  with Style Me Pretty, TX. The lucky lady who won is actually named Lillian! We usually just send a quick tweet or do a short Facebook post when someone wins, but after a dinner with some friends the other night where everyone who was married shared their “proposal story,” I was inspired to find out the story behind this winner’s engagement.

I asked Lilly if she had any photos or anything that she wanted to share about the engagement and she sent some adorable photos as well as a tear inducing proposal video!

Her Fiance is named Nick LaMedica and he is currently on tour with War Horse! They will have to wait until the tour is over to actually “tie the knot,” but they do have a date set for next summer.

Congrats to Lilly & Nick!
