Mermaid Gown Options

Mermaid gowns hug the body tightly until the knee or below, where the skirt flares out, creating a sleek and sophisticated shape. Some mermaid styles are more obvious than others, so you're sure to find the perfect one whether your style is subtle or sexy.

While the name might imply that this style is perfect for a beach wedding, it may be difficult to walk in the sand in this type of dress. Consider doing a few photos on the beach instead of the entire event or have a reception dress to change into afterwards. If you choose one for a conservative church wedding, it might be best to add a bolero jacket or shawl for modesty due to the sleek nature of the gown.
