Here’s mine…it’s kinda between mermaid and trumpet. I tossed and turned over this decision…but ultimatley, I knew I wouldn’t be comfortable if I went for a ‘safe’ dress…such as an a-line or fit and flair lace gown, which are no doubt timeless and gorgeous but I wanted to feel stunning and give my fiance’ what he wanted…a vavavoom bride. =)

Here’s my sweet baby! I LOVE her! It’s Impression Bridal style 10072. This dress in the pic is the sample, which I bought because I am the only person to have tried it on and it fit me perfectly ๐Ÿ™‚

@MrsStrawberry24:

Stunning!! That dress is gorgeous! Mermaid/Trumpet’s(what is even the difference?) are currently my #1 favorite gown style. Is it light pink or is it just the lighting? I sort of really want a very pale pink gown! ๐Ÿ™‚

@Blondetourage: I’m pretty sure Mermaid technically means the skirt flares out or starts (if there’s a clear separation) about the knee or below the knee…in trumpet the skirt begins around the upper thighs. A drop waist  would start at about the hips or just below. but there are so many variations on where the skirt begins it can be pretty pointless to distinguish one from the other. Mine, for example, was listed as mermaid but teh skirt starts at the lower thighs. But I think technically if your bodice and skirt are uniform but the skirt flars out towards the bottom, it’s called a fit and flare gown. I dunno…they are all beutiful and I just like to call them all mermaids. =)
