I don’t know the exact shape of my dress, but it’s definitely close to a mermaid. 

We did pictures out in the vineyards by my house, and had to cross a ditch to get to where a great photo op was. Needless to say, jumping across a ditch in a mermaid dress was not easy. Otherwise, my dress was very comfortable to walk and dance in.

I had a very fitted mermaid and I was really really worried about this. At my fittings I made sure to sit down in my dress to make sure that I could and I’d always walk around a little bit. I had no problems at all on the wedding day. I walked up and down hills and stairs, danced and sat down to eat with no issues.

Mine was fitted just past my butt, then it went out like a ball gown. I think it was the perfect fit! The only mobile issue I had was when I was wearing my freaking high heels for the ceremony. After that I put on my mary jane crocs and danced the night away! 🙂

Not mobility issues per se, but my ceremony dress is super fitted and I want to cut loose at my reception, so I’m changing into a short less fitted dress for the reception.

I’m going to weigh in with an A-line ball-gown. Be aware that you aren’t as agile as you think you are in the thing. Turning the corner without the train bustled was kind of an event. I almost knocked down a speaker with the train, meanwhile my feet and body had well cleared the pole. That was embarrassing. But that was within the first hour of wearing the dress, you quickly get used to it. Try to pick a fabric that is going to let you breathe. Keep the time of year in mind when you choose a dress. If it’s a summer wedding, you are going to get HOT in the wrong kind of fabric.
