Wedding dress styles: The mermaid dress

The mermaid dress

At, we've noticed a definite revival one wedding dress silhouette in particular: the mermaid. Like a real mermaid, the mermaid dress is half and half: half sheath and half ball gown. But this silhouette has come a long way since the 1990s when it first became popular.

The mermaid dress

Simple & elegant

A plain and simple look such as this one, also from Bellissima bridal, is elegant for those with more confidence.

One final note: Because the mermaid silhouette is floor length, it can be worn with any shoe type. Because the dress is frequently tight from the knees down to the calves, however, pairing it with very high heels can be dangerous for walking.
