Giveaway: Win a Luxurious Robe for the Bride

Hey, loves! Happy Monday! What a wonderful weekend that was. We celebrated Andrew’s 1st Birthday and it was amazing. We’re happy to kick off a brand new week with all of you! To start things off… when you hear Doie, what do you think of? I think of my Doie robe, honestly the softest and most delightful thing to wear while reading a book. Or sipping on coffee in the morning while it’s still dark outside. Or putting on my makeup for date night with the hubby. I love my robe. And I am so excited that one of you will win a Doie robe of your own as our latest wedding giveaway this week! The robes from Doie are made of modal jersey so they’re ultra soft and feature kimono-style sleeves for added style. There’s also a 100% silk trim with a pattern, which I adore. The robes also have a permanent exterior belt AND interior belt so you won’t, you know, disrobe unexpectedly (yikes!) during your getting ready photos. And, last but not least, it can be machine washed and laid flat to dry — and let me tell you, it comes out AMAZING every single time. You can also dry-clean it, if you prefer (but I don’t have time for that). :)

Anyway, check out some of these styles and enter for a chance to win your robe!

Win a Robe for the Bride

The lovely designer of Doie, Sara Kirsner, tells us more: “As a 12-time bridesmaid (yes, really!), I know a thing or two about bridesmaid gifts! Doie Lounge was born from the idea that these glamorous, super-soft robes make the perfect gift for a bride to give to her maids. These robes make beautiful and practical gifts for the bridal party, while infusing an often-ignored moment (getting ready the morning of), with elegant detail. The robes look amazing in the pre-wedding primping photos and are a gift that your best ladies will surely wear again and again.

Plus, we wanted to note that if you’re buying bridesmaids for your wedding party, bulk discounts apply: 15% off when buying 3 or more, 20% on 5 or more, 25% off with a purchase of 8 or more, and 30% off when buying 10+ robes.

The #1 Mistake Most Brides Make (and How to Avoid It)

*Giveaway inside!

There is one huge mistake most brides make after the wedding, and it’s totally avoidable. So, what is it? It’s more about what brides aren’t doing that is the mistake. Brides are letting their wedding photos go by the wayside, sitting on a hard drive or flash drive, never to be looked at again. Waiting to print out your photos and assemble them in an album is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. And it’s scary because you could lose those memories forever, if something were to happen to your hard drive, flash drive, or your computer gets a virus. I (Emma here!) know first-hand because something similar almost happened to me. I had a bunch of photos on a hard drive for years, photos of Andrew and I dating, photos of us in college, engaged, newly married… you know, just a TON of photo files sitting on a hard drive. Then one day, Andrew wanted to grab a few photos from a trip we took and print them out. But when he went to download them, the hard drive no longer worked; it was corrupted. It appeared as though no images existed. Just like that.

Yikes.

We searched on Google and found, to our dismay, that a corrupted hard drive could need to be reformatted, as in ERASED. Gone. No more. Memories erased in a heartbeat. And, luckily our wedding photos weren’t on there, but can you imagine? Well, we took our hard drive to a computer expert (shout-out to our local computer shop, Tech City Electronics who SAVED OUR HARD DRIVE!) and we got ALL of those photos back. Can you imagine if you weren’t so lucky? After that day, I learned an important lesson and I back up EVERYTHING. And I print those photos now. Every sweet Baby Andrew smile and video moment (there are thousands, and he’s just under a year!), every cat photo of them sleeping in boxes or drawers or on top of laundry heaps (again, thousands), every home project, family vacation, DIY project, holiday, birthday, and everything else. I mean, why risk it?

Anyways, we would hate for your wedding photos to go missing. So we’re here to help you with a discount and a giveaway so you can print out those photos and put them in a beautiful keepsake photo album. But first… check out some of the new photo album designs we spotted over at Indigo Album Design, one of our go-to sources for professional handmade (+ high quality) photo albums. These albums are incredible!

Crystal Tea Room Wedding: Daniel + Veronica

This Crystal Tea Room wedding in Philadelphia was magnificent! Daniel and Veronica were married this past January at a venue named the Crystal Tea Room in downtown Philadelphia. Daniel from Daniel Fugaciu Photography captured their wedding and tells us all about the details. Daniel says, “As opposed to their awesome engagement session last fall, Daniel and Veronica’s wedding day was a rather chilly one, to say the least. They got ready at Lowes hotel in center city Philadelphia, and when we were all ready to rock, we had their first look on the 33rd floor of the hotel with superb views of the City of Brotherly Love…”

Crystal Tea Room Wedding

“We walked to the beautiful Crystal Tea Room which was minutes away and had our share of cold for the day already. The intricate architecture of Wanamaker building made for great photos with the love birds and the bridal party later. I can already say Finley Catering won me over and it’s only the second time I’m photographing in their knockout venue.”
