When you’re a bride, you might get overwhelmed by all the types of wedding dresses you can choose from. There’s ball gown, A-line, modified A-line, trumpet, and last but not least, mermaid.
If you want to look like Cinderella on your big day, a ball gown might be the perfect style for you. If you want to create the perfect mix between a fairytale and sexy look, a mermaid wedding dress will give you that alluring, beautiful, and majestic style you’re going for.
Some celebrities have the best style and even better designers to create that style. Here’s a look into our favorite celebrities who wore mermaid wedding dresses for their big day.
When Kim Kardashian married Kris Humphries in August 2011, she had Vera Wang create 3 dresses for her. For the original ceremony, Kim wore a ball gown, but for her first reception dress, she changed into a mermaid gown that featured straps along a sweetheart neckline.
The great thing about mermaid dresses is that they help accentuate all the right curves and that’s exactly what this Vera Wang original did. This mermaid wedding dress made Kim’s waist seem even smaller and helped create a defined hour glass shape. Her dress flared into a ruffled mermaid design with a long train.
For her second reception dress, Kim Kardashian changed into another mermaid dress designed by Vera Wang. She wore a silk gown that featured thick straps and a plunging V-neck. The bottom of her dress fell into soft pleats and a small train.
Vera Wang and mermaid wedding dresses must run in the blood of the Kardashians, but it seems Khloe was the first Kardashian to set the trend. When Khloe got married in September 2009 to Lamar Odom, she walked down the aisle in a signature design by Vera Wang.
Khloe wore a strapless silk gown that featured a flaring chiffon skirt. Veering away from the traditional all-white look, Khloe’s dress featured a lavender belt embellished with jewels.
Mariah Carey first married Nick Cannon in April 2008, but the former couple set out to renew their wedding vows in Paris in 2012. With the Eiffel Tower in the backdrop of their picture, Mariah is glowing in her mermaid style wedding dress.
Her vow renewal gown featured thin spaghetti straps and horizontal ruched details along most of the body. The narrow beginning of the mermaid detail gives her a curvier appearance and the skirt bellows out and grazes the ground.
Instead of the classic white, her mermaid dress takes on a more ivory color and features a black belted bow along the waist.
When it comes to celebrity wedding dresses, it seems that Vera Wang is the reigning queen. When Hilary Duff got married in 2010, she set her sights on a mermaid wedding dressed designed by no one other than the fabulous Vera Wang.
In a gown created especially for Duff, they ditched the tradition white and create a silk tulle gown in blush. The dress featured a sweetheart neckline as well as diagonal panels across the body. Her exaggerated skirt was created with multiple tulle blossoms which gave it a full yet soft appearance.
G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S. We’re sure this is what Fergie was talking about when she made her song “Glamorous.” For her marriage to actor Josh Duhamel in 2009, Fergie wore a mermaid gown for her big day. She wore a pure white gown that featured spaghetti straps and a modified neckline.
Looking closely at her dress, you’ll find the narrow of her waist is accentuated by the ruched detailing of the gown. In the front, her dress seems as if it falls into a simple mermaid silhouette, but the back features a white and black floral design that makes the dress and her booty pop.
When Jana Kramer, known for her role on One Tree Hill, walked down the aisle, she did it in a beautifully soft and elegant mermaid style wedding dress. Perfect for a country wedding in Virginia, she married her husband, NFL player Michael Caussin in 2015.
Her semi-sheer gown featured a slight deep V-neck for the perfect amount of cleavage while the open back added a little sex appeal to her gown. The lace detailing along the top continued into the mermaid silhouette, and she finished her look with a long floor-length veil.
If you’re planning on stepping down the aisle soon or at some point in your life, make sure you keep mermaid wedding dresses at the back of your mind. As you can see from these beautiful celebrities, these gowns will give you a beautiful shape, enhance your assets, and leave you glowing as you walk down that aisle.
