When you’re shopping for bridal wear, Sydney is one place you can’t go wrong, especially if you’ve got mermaids on the brain. From Mako to Melbourne, we know all about seaside sirens, and you can wow your groom and guests with a lovely bridal tail of your own. Mermaid dresses are most flattering on the hourglass, rectangle, or inverted triangle silhouettes.
This style of bridal gown hugs your body and flares below the knee, so it accentuates all the right curves. However, you’ll need to take dainty little steps all day, because it does restrict movement. Here at Bridal Secrets, we have a good number of mermaid wedding dresses in stock.
The poufy tail
Maggie Sottero wedding dresses are known for their volume, so if you want a mermaid dress with a lot of ruffled layers, consider Aurora, Serenica, or Primrose. All three have bare shoulders and sweetheart necklines, but while the first two are on the pink spectrum and have crystal encrusted bodices, the third has no bling and lots of ruching.
Aurora has a sensually plunging bareback while Serenica has embroidered Swarovski crystals that curve into an illusion backline. All three dresses tip their tails with an elegant train that will follow in the bride’s seductive wake.
The daring tail
If you’re looking to be the lady in red on your special day, you could spice things up with Graf or Gregal by Pronovias. Their clingy crepe and tulle make them seem closer to sheath than mermaid silhouettes, so they capture the room and flow beautifully when you dance. They’re bridesmaid dresses, but that doesn’t mean they can’t grace a bride.
Graf shows off your cleavage down to your waist while Gregal is more demure, with a jewelled front and a high neckline. Other female guests may show up in crimson shades though, so you might want to mention your dress colour on the invite, just in case. No need to be subtle. Just say ‘PS: ladies, don’t wear red!!!’
The pointed tail
For the dress that’s just a little off-kilter, buy something with a tipped tail like Pronovias Tarifa and Tasiel. Tarifa has her tip at the front, while the inverted ‘v’ on Tasiel is at the back of the dress. Tasiel isn’t the least bit shy, with her scalloped semi-sweetheart neckline and matching scalloped train. Her underlay has a bit of blush, but above, she’s all lace and tulle.
Meanwhile, Tarifa is simultaneously sweet and seductive with her nude underlay nestled beneath an illusion overlay. Both dresses have a healthy dose of guipure applique for that touch of bridal delicacy. Consider selecting an aquatic theme to go with the mermaid bride.
