Iconic Inspiration

Iconic Inspiration

Who is your favorite fashion icon from the past?  Do you have style similar to Audrey Hepburn, classy and sophisticated, or are you more of a glamorous and daring Marilyn Monroe? We have picked a number of gowns here at Twirl that resemble some of the most iconic wedding dresses of all time - they are timelessly beautiful!!

Style Icon: Audrey Hepburn

If your style resembles Audrey, you are classy and traditional. You tend to have expensive taste and have never left the house without a string of pearls. Elegant simplicity is the perfect way to describe Audrey's dress in the image below.

Style Icon: Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth’s style was all about turning simple into sexy and elegance into excess. If you have style like hers, you are completely fearless when it comes to accessorizing and elaborate details are your trademark. Below is a picture of Elizabeth Taylor’s first wedding.  She wore a silk satin, oyster shell-colored gown embellished with pearls and beads. (PS - It had a fifteen-yard satin train!)

Style Icon: Marilyn Monroe

If your style is similar to Marilyn's, you are fun, flirtatious, and bold.  Your walk down the isle will feel more like a walk down the red carpet in this type of gown! We found a couple dresses here at Twirl that reminded us of her most famous white halter neck dress.

Style Icon: Grace Kelly & Kate Middleton

Two of the most memorable gowns of all time were worn by these iconic women. Both Grace Kelly & Kate Middleton had their sleeves and shoulders covered with lace that ended in a tight bodice and then flowed into a full skirt with a long train. Also, both brides wore intricately embroidered veils. Kate's dress is very similar to Kelly's, but with a modern twist.

Style Icon: Jackie Onassis

If you consider your style to be similar Jackie’s, you are graceful and sophisticated. Her voluminous ivory silk taffeta gown with a portrait neckline and wide, embellished skirt emphasized her small waist. This super-romantic bridal ensemble is definitely one to remember.

Check it off your list - When to buy attire for your wedding

Almost daily at Twirl Lexington we are asked, "when should I order my wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses?"  While there are many factors that go into this decision, our advice is to do it as soon as you know it is the one!  Below are the top three reasons why you order when you know what you want.

  • Delivery Time Varies:  Most of the bridal gown designers we offer at Twirl Lexington have a four to six month delivery time.  Most of the bridesmaid designers we offer have a three to four month delivery time.  Of course, this all can change on a moment's notice, especially during busy ordering times!  This is just one reason to go ahead and order when you decide it is the avoid stressful delays caused by unforeseen events such as weather delays, fabric mills running behind, and even Chinese New Year (for those produced overseas).
  • Discontinued Fabrics/Colors:  Retailers are not given much notice on discontinuation of colors and fabrics.  If you have your heart set on a certain color...order it before it is gone.  This recently happened with one of our designers due to the fabric mill they used not producing the fabric any longer. 
  • Peace of Mind: You have the dress of your dreams with plenty of time to spare for alterations!  You can check your wedding dress and the bridesmaids dresses off the list and move on to planning more fun details for your big day!

So, go ahead, choose your dress, set up a fun bridesmaid fitting party at Twirl Lexington and take it off your long list of To Do's before your I Do's!

Happy Shopping!
