wedding dress fish

The “fish” style is one of the most pop­u­lar when it comes to wed­ding and evening dress­es. The peo­ple call it “mer­maid” and “fish tail”, and styl­ists use such ter­mi­nol­o­gy as “godet” and “tromplet”. In all cas­es, one mod­el is meant, which fits the fig­ure, and begins to expand from the knee.

The wed­ding dress “fish” is always long and some­times even has a train. Thanks to this, the fig­ure of the bride is empha­sized, and her gait becomes smoother and more mea­sured. Due to the design fea­tures, it is incon­ve­nient to dance and walk in it for a long time, so styl­ists advise pur­chas­ing an addi­tion­al out­fit for the offi­cial part in the restau­rant. It can be an A‑line dress or an orig­i­nal cropped mod­el.

A bit of his­to­ry

This style orig­i­nat­ed dur­ing the “gold­en era” of Hol­ly­wood, which occurred in the 30s of the last cen­tu­ry. Dur­ing this peri­od, the French cou­turi­er Madeleine Vion­net released a flared skirt. This exper­i­ment was to the taste of advanced fash­ion­istas, so over time, the skirt was trans­formed into a dress.

Since then, many artists and film­mak­ers have giv­en their pref­er­ence to this mod­el. The fish­tail wed­ding dress was once tried on by such stars as Giselle Trump and Christi­na Aguil­era. Design­ers Vera Wang, Monique Lhuil­li­er and James Mis­ch­ka have used this style repeat­ed­ly in their showy bridal col­lec­tions.

Style vari­a­tions

All wed­ding dress­es can be con­di­tion­al­ly clas­si­fied accord­ing to sev­er­al para­me­ters:

  1. Tex­tile. The lace and satin wed­ding dress “fish” looks the most impres­sive. These fab­rics drape very beau­ti­ful­ly, which is impor­tant when dec­o­rat­ing the hem of the dress. The mate­r­i­al falls in soft folds and cre­ates a feel­ing of weight­less­ness of the out­fit. In mul­ti­lay­er mod­els, chif­fon, guipure, organ­za can be used.
  2. “Tail” of the dress. It can be detach­able, that is, sep­a­rate­ly sewn to the dress. There are orig­i­nal out­fits with a hem of flounces or mul­ti-lay­ered tulle. Lovers of the clas­sics real­ly like the wed­ding dress “fish” with a train. In this case, only the back half of the skirt is cut with wedges, due to which it expands only back, leav­ing in a train.
  3. Sleeves. If the wed­ding takes place in the sum­mer, then it is bet­ter to buy a mod­el with­out sleeves. She will empha­size the beau­ti­ful line of the arms of the neck­line, and the con­trast of the naked top and volu­mi­nous bot­tom will look espe­cial­ly impres­sive. For a wed­ding in win­ter, a “fish” wed­ding dress with sleeves is more suit­able. It looks aris­to­crat­ic and ele­gant, so you can order a pho­to ses­sion in a cas­tle, opera or Hol­ly­wood style.

The image of the bride in the dress “fish”

It is impor­tant not only to choose the right style of the dress, but also to com­ple­ment it with the appro­pri­ate hair­style and acces­sories. A wed­ding hair­style for a fish dress should be sophis­ti­cat­ed, like the out­fit itself. It is rec­om­mend­ed to wind the hair and style it in one direc­tion. Anoth­er good option is to col­lect hair at the back of the head and make an inter­est­ing curl. Wed­ding hair­styles for the “fish” dress can be com­ple­ment­ed with small tiaras, beau­ti­ful hair­pins and hair­pins with rhine­stones.

As for the veil, it is bet­ter to use the clas­sic long sin­gle-lay­er mod­el. Wed­ding dress “fish” with lace can be com­ple­ment­ed with a veil with the same lace on the sides. Thus, the dress and veil will organ­i­cal­ly com­ple­ment each oth­er.

Bouquet for the dress “fish”

It is believed that a ball-shaped bou­quet is the least suit­able for this dress, as it does not fit into the con­cept of an aris­to­crat­ic style. Cas­cad­ing bou­quets that fall down go well with the dress of the year. Flower arrange­ment may con­sist of lilies, orchids, lisianthus, freesias.
