Mermaid Forever – Masako Formals’ 7 favorite mermaid weding gowns

The mermaid gown is one of the most classic bridal silhouettes, and while trends may come and go, the mermaid gown is forever.

There’s no one way to do a mermaid, but here’s a rundown of our 7 favorite mermaid bridal gowns – one for each of the seas!

7. Classic ruched organza mermaid gown by  Lillian West

5. “Begonia” by Sophia Tolli

Many consider bridal designer Sophia Tolli to be the queen of the mermaid gown, and Begonia is one of the dresses that earned her that title. With a lightly beaded lace bodice, a detachable rhinestone belt, and a scalloped lace hemline, this dress is perfection from top to bottom.

4. Modern lace mermaid gown by Justin Alexander

A modern interpretation of classic lace like only Justin Alexander can, this gown shimmers subtly from a layer of opal sequence laid under the lace applique.

2. “Tulip” by Karen Willis Holmes

While not a traditional mermaid silhouette with exaggerated flair at the thigh, we included this gown because it exudes the mermaid spirit – the beaded white sequence in the bodice  evokes fish scales, and the skirt flairs into a flowing chiffon. We love this modern interpretation of the mermaid gown!

1.”Aprilia” by Sophia Tolli

With embellished lace, a gorgeous illusion back, and a multi-layered organza skirt, Aprilia has all the elements of glamorous mermaid wedding gown.
