Certain things go in and out of fashion and mermaids just happen to be the in thing right now. There are still LOTS of brides that prefer a traditional ballgown. I wore a mermaid dress and later an a-line for my reception, but ballgowns still remain my favorite silhouette. Another reason is that they’re not very flattering on most body types. I’m very petite and most ballgowns I loved on others overwhelmed me. If you’ve tried it on and loved it, don’t doubt that it’s the right dress for you.
As for your Maid/Matron of Honor, she may not have expressed herself well, or maybe she just has a different taste in dresses. Just remember this is YOUR day and YOUR dress, not hers. You need to pick what you love. There are a lot of brides who buy a dress they’re not in love because they listen to others’ opinions, and later regret it or end up purchasing a second dress.
