Inspired by: San Patrick Mermaid & Trumpet Wedding Dresses

Last Friday, I posted THIS entry about finding the perfect wedding dress for your body type.  Today's feature are mermaid and trumpet wedding dresses, which are ideal for hourglass figures as well as those wanting a very form-fitting look.  A more subtle version of these is the fit-and-flare style.  The trumpet usually flares out AT the knee while the mermaid flares out BELOW the knee. 

The San Patrick line was created in 1964 (also known as St. Patrick) from the Pronovias Group to cater to brides wanting the romantic, elegant look without all the jewels and extra embroidery.  When I think of San Patrick, I think of soft lace and romantic splashes of ruffles for a very classy, clean look.  Here are some of my favorite wedding gowns.
