Trending at Twirl - Color Me Happy!

Being Bold with Yellow!

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!

XOXO, Emily

Mother's (of the Bride) Day!

"All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother"

-Abraham Lincoln

Lincoln said it best. Where would we be without our mothers? Especially on our wedding day! They are the ones we shop for our dress with. They are the ones we cry with. They help us get ready and they zip up our dress and watch us walk down the aisle. They truly are the backbone of our wedding day.
So today Twirl celebrates all the wonderful mommies out there! And we hope that you are spending some quality time with your mother today! We put together some ideas to make your mom feel loved and appreciated on your wedding day and to remind her that you will always be her little girl!
In order to prepare for moments like the ones captured in the pictures above, give your mom a personalized handkerchief to hold as you walk down the aisle! You know she is going to wipe some tears away!
Going along with the teary-eyed theme, give your mom a personalized compact so she can check her makeup after the tears stop and she's ready to party at the reception!
Your mom has a special dress too! Make sure she has something cute to hang it on. She will want to remember what she wore on the big day just as much as you will!
Along with her dress, give her some special "Mother" jewelry to wear the day of. Something personalized just for her will make her fell so special. {ALSO! How sweet is that Mother-In-Law bracelet?! Whoever scooped him up sure has a good man!}
After the wedding is over and you are off on your won and married, give your mom something special to remember the day by. A personalized picture frame is perfect!
And to wrap all this up, here is an adorable and hilarious mother of the bride speech on youtube! Make sure to have your tissues ready! This one is definitely a tear-jerker! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcyNWv4jP14

Happy Mother's Day to all the WONDERFUL mother's out there! Where would we be without you?

XOXO, Caraline
