A New Era of Trends!

Ombre bridesmaid dresses 2

It is no secret that one of the latest trends in the wedding world is ombre!   You can ombre anything – from your hair to dresses, cakes, invitations and much more!  This trend is an easy way to give your wedding day a unique and creative look.  Pick a color and go with it, and always remember to stay simple!
 For example, take a small detail to incorporate like your “something blue.”  Are you having trouble finding your perfect “something blue?” Well have no fear; Twirl has just the look for you!  So why not combine your ‘something blue’ with the ombre look for your big day?  An easy way to achieve this is through bridesmaids dresses.  Twirl offers a wide range of colors and styles to achieve the ombre look for all bridesmaids’ dresses.  While it might seem easy to put together, ombre can sometimes be tricky.  By working with one of our Twirl Girl consultants, you are guaranteed the best help and planning to execute your ombre look! A top trend is having every bridesmaid in a different style, as well as a different hue.  Also, these different shades of blue dresses featured can look stunning whether you are on the beach or in a church!  But, if you want to keep your bridesmaids dresses simple and all one color, no worries!  You can incorporate ombre into the flowers, cake, and invitations and still achieve the same great look!

 

 

No matter what style you are looking to achieve for your big day, remember the Twirl Girls are always here to help!
XOXO, Emily

Being Bold with Yellow!

shades of yellow dresses 2
So you’ve said “yes” and found your special dress! Your next mission, the bridesmaid dresses.  Here at Twirl we have a wide variety of designers, styles and colors for all of your bridesmaid needs.  Finding the perfect color is a must for achieving your overall theme of the wedding.  Whether your wedding is in a church or on a beach, you can make any color work with a few simple steps!
For example, yellow is color that tends to scare away most brides because of its brightness.  But, at Twirl we say don’t be afraid to use bright pops of colors to make a bold statement.  But what if you’re not looking to make a statement?  No worry, yellow is also a beautiful accent color that can be incorporated into every aspect of your wedding.
A good tip is to start simple! You don’t have to make every aspect of the wedding include the color yellow.  You can simply choose to highlight smaller details such as: flowers, cake, invitations, and of course, bridesmaid dresses!

 

Flowers: Hide and Seek Designs
Yellow dresses from Twirl: Lula Kate
Invitations: Le BonBon
Cake: Style Me Pretty

 Don’t be afraid to use color and have fun with your wedding planning! It’s your special day and you can make it your dream come true! Us Twirl Girls are always here to help!
