Being a bridesmaid is a big commitment. If you’re searching for a really unique gift to thank your bridesmaids, Los Angeles-based artist Carla “Twiggy” Terwilleger will create one-of-a-kind paintings for your girls based on their likeness. Simply send her a photo and a few notes about your bridemaid’s individual style. Is she classic? Eccentric? Does she love ice cream or martinis?

As if the photos don’t say a thousand words, here’s the experience of a real bride.

“I simply told Carla in one paragraph what each of my bridesmaids hobbies or occupations were and what their favorite beverage was, and she truly captured each of their personalities and created a lifelong painting they they will adore forever. My six bridesmaids were so honored to receive such a thoughtful and fun gift and it was a treat for me as a bride to see their gratefulness. I recommend any bride to use Carla’s creative ability to provide unique gifts that the girls will cherish forever.” – Jessie Broughton

And who wouldn’t be this pleased to give or receive a gift this original? Twiggy’s fun and fabulous style of “femme fatales” make them the perfect paintings for your girls. The artist actually became inspired to create these unique gifts from her own bridal party experiences.

“Having been a bridesmaid more times than I have fingers, I know how much goes into a wedding. And I also have a lot of pearl earrings and monogrammed picture frames to remember each one. How much better is it to give your girls a gift that no one else has, is unique and fun, and customized just for them? Every time they look on their wall, they will think of your friendship and how much fun they had on your special day. I love “love” and weddings are a testament to all those you love–your honey, your family and your friends. Twiggy Bridal paintings allow them to take a little piece of that special day with them–forever. Because, let’s be honest, you know they’re not really gonna wear that dress again.” -Twiggy

(We think they might wear it again, especially if you choose sophisticated bridesmaid dresses.)
