We continue sharing elegant and original bridesmaid dress ideas. And today let’s talk about mermaid bridesmaid gowns. This type of dresses is very popular among brides, and of course for bridesmaids it’s a great idea too!
First of all, let’s find out what mermaid dress is and why it’s named like that. If you don’t know yet, a mermaid dress (or you can call it trumpet dress) silhouette contours the figure from chest to the knee and then flares out to the hem, giving kind of a fishtail look. The mermaid style will be good for all seasons, all you need is to pick up the right color of dresses for your girls , decide what neckline, sleeves and skirt these gowns will have and from what fabrics these dresses will be sewn. If you’re planning a fall wedding, choose rich shades for bridesmaid dresses such as midnight blue, emerald, marsala, etc. You can pick up strapless gowns for your girls or with a halter neckline, but if you want, you can find dresses with a high neck and long sleeves, they look perfect and fabulous for fall weddings too!
You also have a choice of a skirt type of these dresses cause the skirt can flare above the knee, right at the knee and below the knee. And of course it’ll affect the dress silhouette.
The mermaid style isn’t for every body shape, for example, your girls with apple or peach figures can face some difficulties. So don’t forget about that when you’ll pick up the dress type for bridesmaids.
So how about accessories and hairstyles those match to mermaid dresses? For sure you don’t need to overwhelm them with too many accessories, one statement necklace or gorgeous earrings will be perfect. And the most popular hairstyle is low bun but there are no rules.
