September 22nd, 2022 Wedding Ideas, Tips and Inspiration
Mermaid Wedding Dress Styles - An Ongoing Trend
The mermaid silhouette has been a popular wedding gown silhouette option for many years, and the style isn’t losing any steam. Brides are still all about this feminine, fitted design, and we understand why this trend is not slowing down. Along with other timeless designs like the ball gown and A-line silhouettes, we believe the mermaid will soon be considered a classic.
A mermaid bridal gown flawlessly hugs the hip area and accentuates natural curves before flaring out around the knee area creating the ‘mermaid’ look. This is the optimal silhouette for any bride looking to flaunt an emphasized hourglass figure. However, not all dresses of this design are created the same. Here at Val Stefani we have styles with various features and embellishments to create a wide range of different bridal looks.
