There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing your wedding gown: your wedding aesthetic, your body shape, and of course the (dreaded) budget. And with so many beautiful gowns available to you, finding the perfect one can feel overwhelming. Which dress will make your big day even better?
If you ask us, there’s no question about it: mermaid wedding gowns are the perfect choice for any bride who wants to look heart-stoppingly beautiful on her special day (and let’s be honest — everyone wants that). Here are a few reasons why we love this sexy, yet sophisticated, totally-worth-the-price-tag style.
Highlight Your Curves
The mermaid wedding gown is designed to fit snugly, accentuating your curves and showing off that hourglass shape. The flared “tail” at the base of the gown highlights your assets even further, creating a look that’s elegant and flirty (as you can see by looking at dresses like our Dixon Sweetheart mermaid wedding gown).
As a bride, you’ve likely been working hard to get in great shape for your wedding. So why not show off all your hard work with a dress designed to help you flaunt it! Mermaid wedding gowns are a great way to add a hint of sexiness and edge to a classy, beautiful look.
Bring the Drama Without the Bulk
Over the years, the wedding industry has shown us some dramatic looks: big ball gowns, ultra-long veils, trains that extend to the back of the chapel, you get the drill. These looks are admittedly gorgeous, but they do require a lot of material. If you want to make an entrance but don’t want to be weighed down by extra fabric, a mermaid wedding gown can do the trick.
With a mermaid dress, you get the best of both worlds — a chic, figure-flattering silhouette and a little touch of drama at the “tail.” For example, take a look at our Allen Mermaid Wedding Dress; the lace and beading on the bodice is modern and high-fashion, while the long train at the base of the gown adds a touch of old-fashioned romance.
A Style for Every Bride
You may be thinking, “These gowns are too extravagant for me. I want something simple and pretty, not ultra-glam.” Well, believe it or not, there’s a mermaid wedding gown for you, too! One of the best things about this style is its versatility. The mermaid style can be altered to suit any bride’s tastes (and look incredible every time).
If you want something simple and understated, the Gill Mermaid Wedding Dress just might be perfect. Here, the tail has a more graceful drape instead of a flare, giving the dress a vintage look that’s timeless and beautiful — perfect for a classic, romantic kind of look.
As you begin your hunt for the perfect dress, we encourage you to give mermaid wedding gowns a try. This stunning style might be perfect for you — and with one of these dresses, you’re sure to wow everyone as you walk down the aisle!
