Did you know that every year, Twirl gives away a gorgeous bridal gown? Any bride who purchases a gown from Twirl in the calendar year is eligible to enter, and bonus entries are available if a bride brings in specified items to donate to a local charity of Twirl’s choice (this year, we asked for donations of hygiene products to Safe Haven of Hardin County). The winner of our giveaway has her gown paid for in full by Twirl!

We’re excited to announce the winner of our 2020 gown giveaway, Ashley Milhoan! We’re thrilled for Ashley, and so happy she shared a bit of her love story with us:

“After Russell and I rekindled an old friendship during undergrad, it didn’t take much for us to find excuses to keep seeing each other. Before long, we both knew our relationship was leading towards marriage. Russell and I were 150 miles apart while I finished nursing school and he started medical school, and it was during that time the pandemic swelled and graduation ceremonies were cancelled. Russell planned a graduation photoshoot for me to commemorate my graduation, but after some photos in my cap and gown, Russell proposed to me and of course I said YES!

Visiting Twirl on the recommendation of our friend Karyn, I worked with Ashley who helped me find the perfect dress. While sleeping off a night shift on a COVID unit, I was awoken to the news that Twirl had selected me to receive my wedding dress entirely for free! I already loved Twirl so much, and this gift shows how much Twirl is invested in the community they serve. Thanks to Twirl, I am blessed with the most beautiful dress!”

Congratulations to Ashley and Russell! Thank you for letting Twirl be part of your beautiful love story!
