    Do you have pictures of you in the dresses? I tend to find empire waist dresses harder to pull off because it can sometimes make the wearer look pregnant. But, if done right, it looks very elegant and romantic. If you’re worried about the mermaid looking to formal for a beach wedding, you could try softer fabrics like chiffon.

    I think dresses are completely dependent on body type so it is hard to say!

    If you have your heart set on a mermaid dress and it looks good, that’s the one to pick!  Personally, I am not a fan of empire waist dresses – i think sometimes they look like pajamas or like the bride is pregnant (nothing wrong with that, but if you’re not pregnant, why look like you are?)

    I think both dresses will work well for a beach wedding. Honestly, it’s just up to you! They are both lovely.

    Both are beautiful but they really depend on your body type. Go back and see if you can take pictures of yourself in both styles.
