Kleinfeld Bridal Talks Mermaid Dresses

1 Jun

So mermaid wedding dresses are very popular right now and no self-respecting mermaid blog would be complete without mentioning them. I decided to go straight to the source, those ladies at Kleinfeld Bridal, the store featured in TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress, which is oddly and even suspiciously absorbing even if you think the ritual of throwing down thousands of smackers on one white dress you’ll wear one time is kind of a weird thing to do.

But really, if you’re going to get married you ought to do it in the most mermaidly way possible. That is obvious.

So I spoke with Kleinfeld’s Jennette, who graciously sent me photos of some especially popular gowns, which I have generously posted below, and answered the following penetrating questions.

Have mermaid bridal gowns always been popular with brides or is this a new trend you’re seeing?
Over the last few years mermaid style gowns have become more and more popular. Brides are spending time in the gym sculpting their body before the wedding and a mermaid gown is a great way to show it off.

What is it that appeals to brides about the mermaid gown?
The appeal includes the combination of feeling sexy (since the bodice is close to the body) and still feeling like a bride since the skirts can still be very full (depending on the style),

What kind of body type are mermaid gowns and trumpet-shaped gowns best suited for?
Since the mermaid gown is made to hug the body, it is up to the bride if she wants to show off every curve! The shape is often fitted to the knees with a dropped (low) waistline. Many body types can wear a mermaid style because necklines and waist lines vary. A petite bride can wear a strapless empire waist mermaid gown and a taller bride can wear a dropped waist mermaid. It all depends on the style.

Do you recommend to your clients ways to style the mermaid gown (hair and accessories and shoes, etc)?
We will offer style advice but it is all about how the bride in visions herself on her wedding day.
[I SUPPOSE it makes sense that they don’t suggest glitter and tails and starfish earrings, which is what I would do.]

Have any of your brides ever done anything more extreme with the mermaid theme, or carried it through their entire wedding, as far as you know?
I have not heard any mermaid Themed wedding stories at Kleinfeld but we have had a fairy wedding (wings and all!) which was featured on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress.
