bridal gowns


Welcome to the “Just for You” blog series, friends! This series will highlight different dress styles every month, just for you and the look you want for your special day! I will highlight 5 gowns that fall under different styles each month so you can get a glimpse of what we have for you!

This months highlighted style is for all of my Meghan Markle loving, simple, classic, and timeless girls out there that want a modern flare to their dress! The simple chic style of these gowns are some that you would have seen popular 10 years ago and you will still see them 10 years from now, which is another reason we love them so very much. I just know you’ll be in love with these gorgeous dresses just as much as we are!


First up is this beautifully elegant Jenny Yoo dress, “Amelia”, with a knit crepe bodice and tulle skirt. This is a unique take on a classic ballgown silhouette. With the sleeves falling just off the shoulder, it gives a sweetly modern flare to a timeless look. The defined waist gives way to soft romantic layers and a sweep train. Added bonus? It is SUPER comfortable for that long, worthwhile day!


This gorgeous mermaid style dress, “Monroe” by  Blue Willow is a great option for my girls that want to rock the fitted look. The ruching of the satin fabric is great for giving you the structured hourglass figure, while the horsehair lining of the tulle gives the skirt just the right amount of body.


Another Jenny Yoo, “Spencer”, features a plunging v-neckline bodice with illusion tulle and a dramatic circle cut silhouette in a soft and elegant luxe taffeta. The illusion cutout side panels give a modern and unexpected detail, while the skirt is so light and airy that you’ll be able to dance the night away without any heaviness of a skirt weighing you down!


If you’re looking for an elegant ball gown with the flare of off the shoulder sleeves, this Martina Liana is the dress for you! The way this skirt lays is absolutely breathtaking, with buttons all the way down the train (but you’ll have to come in and see us to take a look at that feature ;)) An added bonus? The sleeves have an elastic band inside- meaning you won’t have to worry about tugging at your shoulders to keep them in place all night!


Last, but certainly not least, we have this gorgeous fit and flare gown by Blue Willow, “Walker”. This pointed strapless bodice with a trumpet skirt of textured organza fils coupe is perfect for the bride who wants to add a bit of flare to their classy wedding dress.

Thank you for taking a peek into only a small fraction of the modernly classic dresses we carry at Twirl! If you’re interested in coming in to try some of these beauties on, send in an appointment request or give us a call and we can set something up for you!

Come back next month as I show you a portion of the gowns we have for our more rustic brides!



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.
