Wedding Veils & Barbells

Attention Twirl girls! Planning a wedding is hard, right?  There are so many things to take into consideration.  Who are your bridesmaids going to be? How will you find that perfect dress, venue or cake?  You have to think about the ceremony, the pictures, reception, decorations, food, hair, makeup…and the list goes on and on.  One thing that most brides have in the back of their mind is that they want to lose a few pounds to look their best on their “Big Day.”  Well, lucky for you, Twirl is now offering a service to help brides reach their fitness/wellness goals.  Whether you want to tone up or lose weight, take advantage of a free consultation with “Wedding Veils and Barbells” and see what this is about.

Hello, my name is Hannah Slone.  I am a graduate from Georgetown College and have obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Exercise Science and a minor in Psychology.  My passion is to help women see their full potential and achieve their fitness goals.  I view losing weight not just as a “fad” or “crash” diet, but as a change of lifestyle to becoming a healthier and happier individual.  For most ladies, our wedding day is something we have played out in our mind and daydreamed about since we were little girls—It’s a “Big Day.”  Possibly the biggest day of our lives, or at least in the top five.  No one wants to look back 5, 10 or 15 years down the road at wedding pictures and think, “Wow…I should have toned up that arm flab,” or “I remember not being able to eat one bite at the reception because if I would have, the buttons on the back of my dress would have popped off.”  To avoid these regrets, let me introduce you to a few options that are now being offered through Twirl.

Congratulations…Since you are a Twirl bride, you are entitled to a free wellness consultation and a discount on a wellness/fitness-consulting package by me.

Here’s how it works and what it includes:

Once you have contacted me, we will schedule a time to meet that works with your schedule to discuss the best package for you, as well as your personal health goals. After we meet, you will begin to receive detailed meal plans and exercise routines that can be done in the comfort of your own home.

Listed below are several packages to choose from to make this experience more enjoyable for you:

-  Bride Only: Customized weight loss plans just for you!

- Bride and Guest of Choice: It’s not easy losing weight alone, right? This package allows the bride and guest of her choice to enjoy this weight loss journey together.

- Bride and Groom: Think of this as a bonding experience between you and your future husband.

- Bride and Mother of the Bride: What better person to walk along side a weight loss journey with—your mom

- Bride & Bridal Party: This is our special package upon request!  Have fun losing weight with all your best friends and encouraging one another.  This makes a great bridesmaid gift.

Lastly, I can’t wait to start this journey with you.  I strive to be more than just a fitness consultant but a friend and accountability partner along the way.  I care about your goals and wishes for your “Big Day”, as well as a lasting lifestyle change.  Call or email me at 606-922-2780, to discuss this in more detail and find out how and when to get started.

Sweat today, smile tomorrow!

Designer of the Month: Tara Keely by Lazaro


If you follow us along on social media you might have noticed that we've been getting some beautiful deliveries lately from Tara Keely! We are over the moon excited about our new arrivals from this amazing designer and it inspired us to encourage our future brides to fall in love too! Walking into the bridal suite can be an overwhelming experience. You walk into a sea of white and are blinded by all things pretty. Designers & dress designs all start to blend together and it's hard to distinguish one from the other at times. Well, let us help you get to know Tara Keely and perhaps you'll fall in love at first sight when you spot it in the bridal suite when you come to shop with us!

Tara Keely has been described as, "inspired by feminine silhouettes and soft alluring fabrics. With a mix of detailed laces, lush tulles, and accents of shimmering sparkle, this collection offers brides the ideal romantic vision. For the graceful and elegant bride who embodies an effortless beauty and timeless sophistication."

Doesn't that sound lovely?! We sure think so!

Photography by The Malicotes

Tara Keely is my (Liz) personal favorite collection here at Twirl. Each dress is timeless, elegant, and has a sophisticated yet chic feel to it. One of my dearest friends got married in one of my all time favorite Tara Keely's, style 2357, and I thought she looked like the embodiment of grace & beauty as she walked down the aisle to her groom and danced the night away with all her closest family & friends.

Photography by Whitney Knutson Photography

Our brides that choose a Tara Keely gown as their wedding dress are never disappointed. They will look back on their wedding day photos when they're old & gray and still be so happy with how timeless and beautiful their dress was. These gowns are ones, that, I believe, can be passed down as heirlooms for generations.

We're offering a special deal for future Twirl brides that purchase a Tara Keely gown from now (September 18th) until October 17th! Tara Keely is officially our "featured designer" for the next month and we'll be offering $200 off their dress to any new Tara Keely bride within that time!

How exciting, right?! Call us to book your appointment to come & shop this beautiful collection! We hope you love it as much as we do! 859.309.2493

Trending at Twirl: New Dress!

Hello ladies! We have some very exciting news to share with you this week! Here at the boutique, the Twirl girls are happy to announce that we have a brand new tea length wedding gown! It’s from one of our favorite designers, Justin Alexander. It has an adorable strapless, satin top with a full tulle skirt. It is detailed with satin buttons down the back and a satin trim around the bottom of the skirt. It is absolutely the perfect dress for any bride that is going for a more vintage look that takes them back to the 1950’s and 1960’s. It is simple but elegant all at the same time!

As classic as this dress is on its own, I have some different looks put together to give it an extra special touch so every bride can make it her own. Everyone knows how much we love our lace boleros here at Twirl, so I’m showing how each bolero jacket looks on the dress to give you brides different options if this gown is something you may be interested in. The three different boleros we have are a cap sleeve, sleeveless, and an off the shoulder sleeve.

First, of course here is the dress on its own. It’s simply stunning, isn’t it!

Second, I put the sleeveless lace bolero on the gown to give it more of a summer spring time feel.

Next,  I added our off the shoulder lace bolero that I think would be perfect for any late summer, early fall wedding.

The last bolero I added was our cap sleeve lace bolero to show the gown with more of a 1950s and 1960s look.

I hope you ladies enjoyed this weeks featured gown and how to make it your own with our different lace bolero jacket options. As always, please contact us with any questions or comments on the wedding gown that was featured today!



Trending at Twirl

I have a treat for you ladies today! This week we are featuring a dress by Hayley Paige from her Blush line. This wedding gown is called River and we love it here at Twirl! It has a great shape that looks fantastic on everyone. So once again we will give a ceremony and reception look to give you brides some ideas for your special day.

The Twirl girls may be a little obsessed with our lace boleros! For this particular dress, we have chosen the off the shoulder lace bolero. This look really gives this dress a more romantic feel to the gown. The bolero has satin buttons that go down the back of the gown, which gives it a special touch. It really makes this dress stand out during the ceremony!

Now, for the reception look I decided to remove the lace bolero. I tried some different belts on the gown to add some fun sparkle. The first belt is for our glamour girls out there. This belt is made by Justin Alexander and it is nothing short of a statement piece! With this belt all eyes will be on you on your special day.

For you brides that want something more simple and elegant, I added this smaller belt made by Kelly Faetanini. It adds just the right amount of sparkle and shine without overpowering the dress or you!

The Twirl girls hope you ladies are enjoying these simple tips that can give you different looks on your special day. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions you may have about any of the accessories shown today!



Out with the Old, In with the New! | Twirl Reno

If you've been following along with us on social media you've probably noticed that Twirl got a little facelift recently! We'd been wanting to do this for a long time but it wasn't until a few weeks ago that we finally bit the bullet and went for it. Oh goodness, it is a DREAM! We absolutely LOVE the new look of the store and we hope y'all do too! Here's a peek into the renovation of our sweet little shop.


AFTER (Yay!!):

 Our amazing custom desk/shelving unit was created by Mulberry Builders and we're absolutely IN LOVE with it! They do incredible work. We couldn't be more pleased!

Gold desk & shelf decorations are from Hobby Lobby. We're a littttle obsessed with gold.

Gold vinyl monograms (TSM is Ty & EMC is Liz) from Dixieland Monogram. We were inspired by our favorite Southern Weddings ladies when it came to our desk chairs!

"The South" print is from The Southern Weddings shop. Go get yourself one, we love it!

Our new Twirl mantra is beautifully framed on our wall. Design/Print by Thirsty Hearts Design, she's oh so wonderful!

We're are OBSESSED with those gold stripes on the walls! Kate Spade would be proud, or so we hope. Ha!

 Southern Belle Glitz is selling her bridal collection here at Twirl & we are in love!

 Reupholstered cushions can make a world of difference! Fabric from Rag Peddler here in Lexington.

And there you have it! Please come by & see it in real life sometime, we'd love that!

Have a great Wednesday everyone!!


Trending at Twirl: Accessories Edition

Good news ladies! The Twirl girls have come together to bring an interesting twist on your wedding dress! We have realized that there is one thing better than having one look on your wedding day and that is having two different looks. We know you’re probably thinking that there is no way you’re buying two wedding dresses but that’s where we come in. We have played around with our gowns and accessories to come up with a new series of entries to show you special brides to be, how to transform a wedding dress in a few easy steps. During appointments, we notice a lot of brides would like to be more modest during their ceremony but then have a little more fun with their gown at their reception.

This week we are putting a fun twist on one of our most classic dresses. On this gown we have added a cap sleeve lace bolero jacket and an ivory sash to really bring that classic bride feel to this amazing dress. We know that many of our brides out their like to be able to dance the night away with their new husband. To make this dress more dance friendly, we removed the lace bolero jacket and the ivory sash, but added a fun Kelly Faetanini belt to bring a little sparkle to the dress.


This is the dress before we added any accessories.

We then added the Kelly Faetanini belt to give some sparkle to the gown for the reception.


Finally we added the lace bolero jacket and a ivory sash to bring that classic wedding look to this wedding gown.


Look how sweet!

We hope that you ladies are going to love these fun tips to really bring a fresh look to your wedding gown but at the same time keeping the classic bridal look that we all know and love. Stay tuned for next week’s post!



Happy Five to Ty & Brandon! | Marriage Advice Five Years In

Five and half years ago I began the journey of opening Twirl.  My little pink dream store.  I was 29 years old and embarking on what would be the most rewarding {and hard} five years of my life.  Little do some know that one month prior to opening the doors of Twirl, my husband proposed.  Our marriage has grown right along with the business we work so hard to make successful.  Both require lots of attention, nurturing and thought.  If you let either one run on auto-pilot for too long you risk losing it.  Some days are sometimes long, but the sweet years are oh too short.  It is a requirement to put your heart and soul into loving your husband and we have worked hard to keep life interesting.  So far we have survived the loss of a job while starting a new business, buying our first home together, moving four weeks before our first daughter was born, added a second daughter to our family and grown our little business to be pretty darn successful and rewarding!  I am by no means an expert...but here are a few words of wisdom from me.

Wedding Day Advice

Our wedding day was magical.  I broke down in tears of joy when it was all over because I was so overwhelmed with the outpouring of love we felt that day.  I wish for that feeling for each of our brides that come through the doors of Twirl.  It did not run perfectly smooth...and here is what I would do differently if I had to do it all over again {to the same man, of course}!

  • Do a first look.  I understand it is tradition to not see one another before the big moment, but I cannot stress enough how special that time was for us.  It was just the two of us {and our photographer}.  We had time to share our thoughts and take it all in together.  It made the ceremony much more relaxing.

  • DO. NOT. run late for photos!!!  Our hair/makeup schedule got a little thrown off and that pushed us later for photos.  We were all stressed and did not get the shots that I ideally wanted.  All in all we have gorgeous pictures from our day, but it would have been much better had we planned a little better.

  • Hire a professional to run your day for you!  If you cannot afford a full service planner at the very least find someone to do your day-of coordinating.  Ours was a lifesaver!

  • Before you leave the reception ask your coordinator to pull your parents into a separate room so you can spend some time thanking them for all of their love and support.  We had about ten minutes with our parents and it was priceless.  My dad also handed me a little video camera of short videos he'd captured throughout the day.  We took it with us on our honeymoon and laughed and cried at the special memories.

  • Have your coordinator/caterer pack food for your getaway car!  We were starving when we got home!!

  • Enjoy. Every. Second.  It truly flies by.

Advice for Married Life and Life with Children

We are still figuring it out day by day...but here is what we have learned:

  • Surround yourselves with great examples of love and learn from them.

  • Laugh with each other and relax.  My husband keeps me grounded and knows when to tell me I am taking myself too seriously.

  • Go on dates.  This gets harder with children, but those days or nights out with just the two of you remind you that it all began with just you all.  Keeping each other happy is all that matters.

  • Pray together.  I included one of my favorite verses in the picture collage.  Proverbs 31: The Wife of Noble Character. If you have not read it.  Take the time to do so.  I am in constant prayer that I can be all of the things it mentions.


Remember to celebrate your anniversary every year.  It doesn't have to be elaborate.  Our tradition has been to order a new cake topper and enjoy LOTS of cake with champagne in our toasting flutes from the wedding.  This year is a little more special, being our Happy Five and all! So, we are heading out to Asheville, North Carolina for a weekend away with no responsibilities...and we couldn't be more excited!  Did I mention that my super thoughtful husband gave me a package of anniversary cards to open on our wedding day?  I can't wait to open our Five Year card and see where he thought we would be at this point...

Thank you to everyone who has loved and supported us the past five years.  We look forward to MANY more!!

Tara Keely Trunk Show at Twirl!

We are so excited for the weekend ahead here at Twirl! The Tara Keely trunk show is coming our way and we know that our store is about to be flooded with beauty!! It's May 15th & 16th so be sure to call and set up your appointment ASAP! 859.309.2493

Twirl Gives Back

Lately we have felt overwhelmed with gratitude for the work we get to do and the lives we get to be a part of here at Twirl. They say that giving comes from a grateful heart and we couldn't agree more. Starting this month, we want to make it a point to have a weekend at least once a month where a percentage of our profit goes to those in need or to a charity that we believe in. Kicking off our new "Twirl Gives Back" tradition, a portion of our profit this weekend is going to help send one of our very own, Miss Emily Rhoads, to Costa Rica for a mission trip this summer. We are so excited to support Emily and help make this trip happen for her! We thought it'd be sweet to have her share her heart with you all about why she's going to Costa Rica and what you'll be a part of this weekend if you're one of our special brides or bridesmaids!

“I’ll go.”

Who knew two words could open up a desire that rested deep in my heart, those two words have shaped my year, those two words are the start of a journey that will begin its first chapter with a trip to Costa Rica. In the last year I’ve had this thirst to go wherever the Lord wants, to leave the comfort zone that is Lexington is to me. Nothing can quench this thirst other than going and doing.

It all began while sitting in a church service and the pastor said that a person in the congregation would get to serve on a mission trip and their funds were already taken care of. As soon as I heard this I started to pray, ‘PLEASE BE ME.’ I just couldn’t stop thinking about how I wanted to be that person. Until that day the desire to serve in a developing country had never shown itself in full force, but it was buried in my heart and brought to life that day in church. Unfortunately I did not get to go on that trip, but every day since I though about going somewhere but I just didn’t want to go completely alone.

Fast forward about six months, I’m talking to a friend and she mentions that she wants to go a mission trip to Costa Rica but doesn’t want to go by herself. And then those two words slipped out of my mouth without even thinking; “I’ll go.” That’s all it took to get the wheels in motion to begin planning our trip. We did a lot of research and decided to travel with a group called Experience Mission for one week in July to a remote village called Shiroles, Costa Rica. We will be serving the community by helping to build homes and an education center for the village and the surrounding communities. We will also be working with local churches and leaders and helping with a children’s day camp. But what I am most excited about it getting to love on everyone I meet. There is nothing more that I want to do than share the love of Christ and be a light for him in a place that hasn’t gotten to see much of that light.

We are so excited about this weekend and supporting our sweet Em! Thank you in advance for being a part of this with us! If you feel compelled to support Emily but aren't in need of a bridal gown or bridesmaid dress you're more than welcome to come by and donate to help Emily raise money for her mission trip, we certainly wouldn't turn anyone away that wants to give!

Meet the Twirl Girls: Emily Rhoads

Today you all are getting such a treat! It's been a couple months since we've done a "Meet the Twirl Girls" post but we are excited to start the series up again and introduce you to one of precious bridal consultants, Emily! Em is truly one of the kindest people we know and every bride that experiences an appointment with her is never disappointed. She is patient, knowledgeable and oh so loving! We love our sweet Em & we know you will too!

What’s there to know about this Twirl Girl?

Hello loves! I’m Emily or Em as most of my friends call me. I’m the youngest of three and my sister and brother are the coolest people I know. I was born in Hotlanta then about a year later we packed up and headed north to Huntington, West Virginia where the Rhoads’ kids grew up and once the older two where off to college we moved to Lexington. I graduated from Lexington Christian Academy in 2013 and then joined the Big Blue Nation majoring in dietetics. Lexington has ahold of my heart and I couldn’t bear the thought of leaving for college.

Before working at Twirl, I was an assistant horseback riding instructor and spent every afternoon grooming horses and herding children around the farm. My daily uniform was an old pair of jeans and some dirty riding boots. It was the perfect job while I was showing and competing American Saddlebreds and as a bonus I got to see my show horse every day. But the farm work wasn’t over when lessons were finished for the day, I’d come home to our little farm in between Lexington and Versailles where my sweet girl lived in the pasture right outside my window. I still ride for UK Saddleseat Equestrian Team because you can take the girl away from the farm but you can’t take the farm out of the girl.

I’ve been a Twirl Girl since November 2013 and I’ve loved every second of it! When I first started as an intern, I had so much to learn and had no idea how much goes into finding the perfect dress. But after a year or so I can honestly say I know more about wedding and bridesmaid dresses than I even thought was possible and I’m still learning new things every day as a consultant!

What is your favorite dress at Twirl & why do you love it so much?

I love bits and pieces of every dress in the store. It seems like every week I have a new favorite and gorgeous dresses are constantly coming in that put up a good  fight to be my favorite but my one true love came last summer and I feel head over heels for it instantly! The Justin Alexander lace ball gown is everything I want in a dress, simple and elegant, not too much fuss and just a little bit of sweetness. I’ve always been a lace girl and the lace on this dress is so pretty and soft. And that comberbun waist (oh goodness!) is so flattering and highlights all the right places.

When you're not working at Twirl, what do you enjoy doing?

When I’m not at Twirl or in class, you can probably find me at one of the local coffee shops with a hot cup of coffee and either a good friend or a good book. I’m a lucky girl who has three families: my real family, my Twirl family and my Christian Student Fellowship family. Most of my friends jokingly call me mom and that’s probably because I make “family” dinners for them all the time and homemade cupcakes for their birthdays. I find so much joy in cooking and love to use my friends as guinne pigs for new recipes. One of my most prized possessions is my Kitchen Aid stand mixer, its one of the most beautiful things I’ve laid my eyes on (I might be a little obsessed).

There are few things I love more than being in the great outdoors. When I get the chance I try to get my nature fix any way I can, whether it be spending a day deep in the woods hiking, out on the lake, hanging out in my hammock reading or just a night under the stars with a bonfire and friends. In the next few years my goal is to hike the ENTIRE Appalachian Trail (all 2,500 miles of it).

My heart also longs to travel to some of the forgotten places of the world and share Christ’s love with everybody who lives there. This coming summer, I’m heading to Costa Rica for a week or so and I couldn’t be more excited to get out of my comfort zone a little bit and love on some people. I hope to go on more trips like this and invest even more time in those places and relationships that will be built there.

Favorite bridal moment as a Twirl Girl?

Being a Twirl Girl for over a year now has left me with so many wonderful and exciting bridal moments to be able to pick just one. But there is something truly magical about a bride finding her dream dress. With some brides there are happy tears, others giddy laugher or just exuberant smiles and then there those where all of those three are rolled into one. It never gets old or any less exciting to be a part of such a special occasion.

If you could get married anywhere in the world where would it be & why?

I’ve been dreaming of my dream wedding since I was a little girl (but what girl hasn’t?) and yes my tastes have changed quite a bit since I was ten and glow in the dark stars were somehow going to make an appearance. Thankfully as I’ve gotten older glow in the dark stars have lost their appeal and with a little help from Pinterest it seems like my dream wedding could actually take shape. I would love to have an outdoor wedding and reception. I’d love to have it in a place that is a little untamed and natural. To light up the night, I’d use lots of string lights and candles. And some rustic, natural touches in my decorations and cake. I love the beauty of nature and wouldn’t want to leave that out on one of the most special days of my life.


Isn't she the sweetest?! We hope you love her just as much as we do & feel extra comfortable around here now if you ever come to Twirl & see her sweet face!

Hayley Paige Coming To Twirl

We are bursting at the seams with how excited we are to be adding Hayley Paige to our collection here at Twirl! At the end of the month we will be having our trunk show with "the best of Hayley Paige" and are chomping at the bit for all of her gorgeous gowns to fill our store. We already carry her Blush line and are completely smitten with it so to add her bigger & better Hayley Paige line is as exciting as Christmas morning for us!

Our love for Hayley is probably very evident but we know to those of you outside the pink walls of Twirl, you may not have a clue why our love runs deep for this special lady. We thought it'd be a good idea to introduce you all to Hayley so that you could fall in love with her just like we have and therefore your excitement for this addition to Twirl is just as much as ours.

From the JLM Couture website: "Ever so eclectic, her designs capture a romantic and charming aesthetic that balances inner ingénue and sophistication. Her interpretation of worldly influences and desire to dress hopeful romantics, have provided a foundation for a fanciful and fresh take on bridal wear. Never taking herself too seriously and fully embracing the adorning history of the bridal industry, Hayley Paige develops her craft from an inspirational place of appreciation and enjoyment."

Hayley's designs are reflective of her personality -- young, fun, unique, and beautiful! Her gowns are a breath of fresh air just like she is. Hayley's gowns start at about $2,800 and will go up to $4,500.

So mark your calendars friends -- January 29th through January 31st for our Hayley Paige trunk show! It's going to be an amazing weekend that you certainly don't want to miss!

Meet the Twirl Girls: Liz Cox

Happy Wednesday, friends! Can you believe it's already November?! We are in a little disbelief how quickly this month snuck up on us but we are loving the fall weather & the beautiful weddings that are taking place!
With it being a new month, that means that it's time to introduce another Twirl Girl! This month you're getting to meet our social media manager & one of our bridal consultants, Liz Cox. So feel free to take a breather from this gloomy, rainy afternoon & get to know Liz!
What’s there to know about this Twirl Girl?: 
Hi y’all! I’m Elizabeth but all my friends call me Liz. I’m a big fan of nicknames and if you’re around me long enough you’re sure to gain your own. I’m a born & bred Lexingtonian. I graduated from Henry Clay in 2010 and the University of Kentucky in May 2014 with a degree in Family Sciences. I love this city. The longer I’m here the more I’m convinced I may never leave. There’s nothing that gets my heart pumping quite like driving out on our old country roads and being surrounded by the horse farms that line the black wooden fences.
Other things that make my heart flutter are beautiful sunrises & sunsets, trees in the fall, a completed to-do list, driving with my windows down & music blaring, a warm cup of coffee coupled with a cozy blanket & my bible, standing on the top of a mountain, wine nights & good conversation with people I love, bonfires, my church, and love stories that reflect an genuine, bigger-than-yourself kind of love.
I’ve been a Twirl Girl since the beginning of August and truly wouldn’t want to be anywhere else during this season of my life. I’m the social media manager, a bridal consultant, and Caraline’s assistant while Ty’s been on maternity leave. I’ve learned more in the last three months than I ever could’ve imagined. I’m a people-person and so this job just makes me come alive! Getting to be a part of girls’ wedding dress experience is so precious to me. There is nothing quite as sweet as a bride’s face lighting up when she knows she’s found “the one.” I feel like one lucky girl to be at Twirl and a part of the magic that happens here!
Question #1: What is your favorite dress at Twirl & why do you love it so much?: 
One of my very favorite dresses in the store is a Blush by Hayley Paige gown that has the most beautiful ruffled train. I love the raw silk fabric combined with a classic, simple silhouette. I’d say my style in general is simple but always with a little something to it like a pop of color or a fun print. Translating that into a wedding gown, this dress fits perfectly! It’s bridal, it’s sophisticated, it’s classic, but it’s also got a little bit of a party in the back and that’s what I’m all about! Most of all, I feel beautiful in this dress just as every girl should on their wedding day.
Question #2: When you’re not working at Twirl, what do you enjoy doing?
Outside of working at Twirl, I am photographer {Elizabeth Meriwether Photography} & the co-founder of bridal blog called Two Belles & a Bride. I keep myself busy with beautiful people & documenting their sweet stories and I absolutely love it! When I’m not working at all, you can find me spending time with my friends and family. Whether that’s taking spontaneous road trips, outdoor adventures, movie nights at home, or just sipping on coffee together enjoying good conversation, we’re together and we’re happy and that’s what matters.
Question #3: Favorite bridal moment as a Twirl Girl?
My favorite bridal moment was when I had a bride fall in love with a totally unexpected dress. She had tried on several she had pinned on Pinterest and just wasn’t feeling any of them. Eventually we put her in a dress we had randomly grabbed and weren’t super optimistic about but once it was on, her face lit up. I walked her out into the big room and her future sister-in-law immediately got tears in her eyes. The sweetest moment for me, was when my bride FaceTimed her parents and her dad said, “Oh yes. That’s it. That’s the one.” We all lost it, yep, even me. There wasn’t a single person in her family that didn’t love the dress and it was everything she had dreamed of without even realizing it. I’m a sucker for sweet dads and the unexpected winners so that appointment will always be one I keep near & dear to my heart.
Question #4: If you could get married anywhere in the world where would it be & why?:
In my dream world, I would get married in the mountains. I love the idea of an outdoor wedding and for me the mountains are where I feel closest to the Lord. My heart for my wedding is that it would draw people closer to Jesus. What better atmosphere to encounter the presence of the Lord than in the midst of his creation?!
“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” Isaiah 52:7
Question #5: What are words that most inspire you? 
“But love, sooner or later, forces us out of time. It does not accept that limit. Of all that we feel and do, all the virtues and all the sins, love alone crowds us at last over the edge of the world. For love is always more than a little strange here. It is not explainable or even justifiable. It is itself the justifier. We do not make it. If it did not happen to us, we could not imagine it. It includes the world and time as a pregnant woman includes her child whose wrongs she will suffer and forgive. It is in the world but is not altogether of it. It is of eternity. It takes us there when it most holds us here.” Wendell Berry
Hopefully you'll feel like you know another friendly face when you come into Twirl now! Have a wonderful rest of your day!!

Halloween Goes Bridal!

Happy Halloween everyone! We hope everyone is surviving off a constant sugar high today & enjoying every bit of this fun Fall holiday! We were feeling a little inspired over here at Twirl and thought it might be fun to put our own little twist on Halloween this year. We took some of our favorite dresses and turned them into some fun costumes in the spirit of Halloween! No tricks, only treats here at Twirl -- take a look at our not-so-scary Halloween costumes:
Up first, we've got Caraline rockin' the Greek goddess look in a pretty Donna Morgan dress and Sara Gabriel headpiece. All she needs now is a handsome man feeding her grapes & she's got whole package. ;)
Next, we've got Liz channeling her inner Elsa in this stunning Blush by Hayley Paige gown and Sara Gabriel tiered horsehair trim veil & rhinestone headband. She's throwing off her gloves and is ready to brave to chilly weather on the quest for Lexington's best treats!
{If there does happen to be snow, as some weather men have predicted, you'll know who brought it!}
We couldn't resist dressing Caraline up as the classiest lady of them all -- Miss Jackie O. This Justin Alexander all lace A-line gown & Sara Gabriel bird cage veil felt fitting when it came to the infamous beauty of Mrs. Kennedy. The only thing missing are some big ole' Jackie O sunglasses!
Liz & Caraline both have a sweet spot in their hearts for Glinda the good witch from the Wizard of Oz. So it was a no brainer that Liz would be transformed into her for all this Halloween fun! Pairing this amazing Blush by Hayley Paige pink ballgown with the little gold crown we keep around for fun made for the most perfect rendition of Glinda!

So if you're ever wondering what to do with your wedding dress after the big day, maybe making it into a Halloween costume could be a fun idea for you, HA!

Have a great weekend you all & have the happiest Halloween ever! We hope it's full of lots & lots of treats!!
