Mermaids Are the New Ballgowns!

The trend keeps on growing! Mermaids are taking over the ballgown. When I first started working for Solutions Bridal in February 2005 ballgowns were it! My very first bride, Margaret, purchased a gorgeous Lazaro ballgown with alencon lace covering the hem. Wow, have times changed. Majority of the brides that walk into Solutions Bridal Gainesville want mermaids. They love how it gives them an hour glass figure. Before it seemed like brides were afraid to show their curves. Now they have embraced them in their sleek mermaid wedding gowns. Mermaids are my favorite silhouette so I'm all in for this trend! Take a look at the new mermaid gowns from Jasmine bridal. All these wedding dresses will be available in the Gainesville location for Fall season! Keep an eye out for Trunk Shows. Let me know what you think. Post a comment

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
