From “Say Yes to the Dress” marathons to hundreds of Pin-worthy images popping up across social media, it can be nearly impossible to figure out how to narrow down the style of dress that you want. A mermaid wedding gown is always a great way to go. We’re here to give you a solid argument for wearing this flattering option.
It’s sexy, yet classy
There’s something about a fitted gown that makes people turn heads. If you’re someone who wants to take full advantage of having all the attention on you then you should highly consider opting for this look. It’ll show off your curves in all the right places but still provide you with some major drama on the bottom.
It’s not as “mermaid-y” as you might think
The word “mermaid” might be a reason in itself that you don’t want to try one on. Looking like a mermaid on your wedding day can be a scary thought, so think of it as more of a dramatic fit to flare. All it technically means is that the spot in which the flare of the dress begins is a bit higher and more noticeable than a fit-to-flare style. If you like showing off your curves or at least try one on, you might be surprised how much you enjoy it.
It’s a good option if you’re traveling with your gown
If you’re having a destination wedding or you purchased your gown in a different place than your wedding venue, it’s not super difficult to transport. A ballgown will be much more of a hassle and cost more if you end up having to ship it. With all of that fabric, it can be difficult to get it to the destination safely in one piece. The mermaid gown isn’t overflowing with excess crinoline or tulle, making it a much smoother delivery process.
It’s good in hot weather
If you’re tying the knot in Mexico, California or just in the heat of the summer, a mermaid gown is another good option. You won’t be drowning in layers of fabric and the gown will move to your body, all while keeping your shape intact and highlighting your best assets.
It’s the best of both worlds
A lot of people struggle while their shopping about the kind of look they want. Do they want a gown that shows off their best assets or a gown that brings the drama? A mermaid wedding gown does both for the price of one. From your chest down to your knees, you’ll see every awesome curve in their best light. From your knees down you’ll get all the va-va-voom that’s appropriate for your wedding day. Worried about deciding between the two styles? Now you don’t have to be.
Your S.O. will love it
Obviously, you want to make sure you love yourself in it, but there’s no way your fiance(e) won’t love what you’re wearing. They’ll also be able to stand close to you during pictures, which doesn’t always happen if you go for a ballgown. Highlighting you in all the right places with a bit of drama on the bottom is a look your S.O. won’t be able to resist.
