And if a mermaid wedding dress is something you are searching for, stick around – we scoured the internet and found the most gorgeous, sexy mermaid wedding dresses.
What is a Mermaid Wedding Dress?
We get it! When you get engaged, you are quickly inundated with hundreds of “wedding lingos” that may be foreign to your vocabulary. Things like honeymoon, micro-wedding, mermaid wedding dress, fit-and-flare, and minimony are just a few. We want to make sure that you understand what each wedding dress silhouette is to quickly communicate to your stylist the style you are looking for. So, what exactly is a mermaid wedding dress?
A mermaid wedding dress is similar to our last featured dress silhouette – the fit-and-flare. A mermaid wedding gown is fitted through the waist, hips, and down to the knee. What’s different than the fit-and-flare? It all boils down to “wear” the flare in the skirt starts. In the fit-and-flare, it starts to flare just below the hips. The mermaid silhouette is doesn’t flare until you get to the knee.
If you picture a “real mermaid” in your head, you can easily envision the shape of a mermaid wedding gown. Her costume is so tight all the way down to the knees that it makes it hard for her to walk, but sexy none the less.
The good news, your mermaid wedding gown doesn’t have to be that fitted where you can barely walk. And, contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be skinny to rock a mermaid bridal gown on your special day. It is a figure-flattering style that looks stunning on anyone, especially brides with curves!
