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.

Honeymoon Planning Tips: 3 to 6 Months Before

Hi, loves! It’s time for our 2nd installment of our honeymoon planning tips (part 2/4). Last time we discussed how to plan a honeymoon, we gave you tips on what to do 8 months to 1 year before the wedding.

Honeymoon Planning Tips

1. Cross off the first tips.

If you haven’t completed these yet, do it first.

2. Schedule your transportation.

Need to rent a car? Now is the time to take care of it. Don’t forget about transportation to and from the airport.

3. Renew (or get) your passport, visas, and any documentation.

The most important of the honeymoon planning tips? Getting your passport! Sometimes it can take longer than you’d like to get a passport. If you’re going out of the country, make sure you have the required documentation for your trip.

4. Get tickets for events.

If there are particular events or sights you’d like to see, register for them now (or at least add them to your schedule). You don’t need to plan too many activities, but having a few scheduled is a fun idea.

5. Figure out what you’ll be packing.

What do you need to bring with you? Do you need new luggage, a bikini, beach attire, comfy foldable flats, cute new sunglasses with polka dots (I totally just bought a pair because, polka dots, duh), chic sandals, a wide-brimmed sunhat, beach towel… you get the idea.

In conclusion, now that you know how to plan a honeymoon 4 to 6 months before, it’s time to start thinking about lingerie. We’ll be covering it next week in the next edition of our honeymoon planning tips series! ♥
