big screen brides
Brides come in to Twirl all the time having seen all the great wedding classics. From the time we were little girls, we see our favorite leading ladies in amazing ensembles and automatically associate that with the ideal wedding and the perfect dress. We have put together a little list recognizing our favorite movie brides of all time. We've matched their iconic gowns with the dresses we have here in our boutique. If these women in white have always inspired you, you’ll be able to put your own stamp on some of their classic styles by coming to Twirl to choose your wedding dress! You will not be disappointed with out fabulous look-a-like gowns!
Let’s start with every little girls dream. Cinderella. She survived the wrath of her evil stepmother, and got to live happily ever after with a gorgeous prince. When I was little, I thought every bride and every princess needed to get married in a long sleeve white ball gown. Cinderella's big full skirt and long veil truly make her look like royalty on her big day.
The dress we have at Twirl that would be a perfect Cinderella replica is a gorgeous La Sposa ballgown. It is the perfect princess wedding dress with lace sleeves and a big satin skirt and train. It even has a little sparkle in the lace to add to the magical feeling you get when you put it on!
Kate Hudson in Bride Wars
When Hudson’s character, Liv, tried on that stunning dress in the bridal salon, I am pretty sure every girl's heart stopped. It is breathtaking. A huge tulle skirt and a gorgeous sweet heart bodice, how romantic! Her purple velvet bow adds a little pop of color without taking away from this show-stopping dress.
Twirl’s version is very similar to beautiful Kate’s dress. Ours is a Tara Keely ballgown. It is an ivory tulle gown with a delicate beaded bodice and a natural waistline. Just like Kate’s, it has a chapel train and a very full skirt. Any bride in this dress would give Kate a run for her money as one of the most beautiful brides!
Kimberley Williams in Father of the Bride
When Annie Banks walks down the stairs at her parents’ house with her dad, it is one of the best moments of the whole movie. After watching George Banks struggle to give his daughter the perfect wedding, it makes it all worth it when he sees her in her childhood bedroom in her puffy white dress. Her gown is very 80’s with the high neck lace and big puffy veil. Annie looked absolutely stunning and SO bridal.
This dress, while a little less 1980’s, still reminds us a lot of Annie’s! It is a Tara Keely ivory silk ball gown. It has a sweet heart neckline with illusion lace covering the bodice just like Annie’s. It has a sweeping train in the back and a ribbon bow around the waist. This dress will make you feel every inch a bride and you can relive your Father of the Bride fantasy! (PLUS! This is our owner, Ty's, favorite dress in the whole store!)
Katherine Heigl in 27 Dresses
We all rooted for poor Jane in 27 Dresses as she watched her dream man fall in love with her sister. But we anxiously and happily watched her fall for her perfect guy before the end and hang up her bridesmaids dresses in exchange for a stunning A-line gown for her beach wedding. Her simple dress with a delicate V neck perfectly suits her personality. Her flower hair piece made the simplicity of her dress all the more beautiful and elegant.
When we saw Katherine, we immediately thought of our A-Line Blush gown. Our gown is ivory taffeta with a V-neck and natural gathered waist with floral detail. It has an open back and a big sweep train. This dress is perfect for a simple beach wedding like Jane’s!
Reese Witherspoon in Sweet Home Alabama
On a gorgeous southern plantation, Reese Witherspoon plays the part of the sassy southern bride. Melanie. Her dress and bird-cage veil are absolutely gorgeous. Melanie’s dress is so simple and sweet. The delicate lace and cap sleeves perfectly embody her southern charm. Her straight across neckline keeps with the modest southern bride theme as well.
Our dress to match Reese’s is a feminine Kelly Faetanini dress. It has the same cap sleeves made from Chantilly lace and a ruched bodice with a few sequins throughout the A-Line skirt. Along the bottom of the dress is a gorgeous lace trim. If you are looking for southern charm to add to your wedding look no further! This dress is perfect for you.
Kristen Stewart in Breaking Dawn
When Bella finally marries the most perfect man (okay...vampire), she does so in absolute style. Her dress was a gorgeous 1940's inspired gown and honestly, who would have thought Kristen Stewart could look so beautiful? The dress is absolutely breathtaking and screams elegance. It is a fit and flare satin gown with 152 buttons going all the way down through the sweeping train and lace accents. The illusion back is dramatic but romantic as well. Not only were people drooling over her to-be husband, but her dress as well.
The dress we have paired with Kristen’s is by Kelly Faetanini. It is a gorgeous fit and flare with a v-neck and slim straps. It has a deep illusion back with floral detailing. Though it is not satin like Kristen’s dress (it is full lace) it still has the same feel with the long train and exposed back. It is sophisticated and elegant all at the same time. It would be perfect for your formal, romantic wedding.
Whoever inspires you for your vision of how you are going to look on the Big Day, Twirl has the perfect dress for you. From ballgowns, to mermaids, you are sure to put your own flare on your favorite dress!
