A style of dress that has grown significantly popular over the last few years is the mermaid style wedding dress. It is projected for 2015 that this dress will still top the charts in styles worn my brides all over the country.

Audrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady”

Few know where the mermaid trend came from and it is actually 60’s inspired.  We all know and love Audrey Hepburn.  She is a style icon and represents grace and beauty; classy and refined. Audrey Hepburn, born Audrey Kathleen Ruston; 4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993) was a British actress and humanitarian. Recognised as a film and fashion icon, Hepburn was active during Hollywood’s Golden Age. She was ranked by the American Film Institute as the third greatest female screen legend in the history of American cinema and has been placed in theInternational Best Dressed List Hall of Fame. She is also regarded by some to be the most naturally beautiful woman of all time, especially in neoprene bikinis and with beautiful bracelets, necklaces and rings.
The mermaid dress was inspired by the dress she wore to the races in “my fair lady.” I’m guessing the black accents on her dress may also have inspired the latest fashion trends of adding black embellishments to the wedding dress.  Alvina Valenta is a great wedding dress designer that has many mermaid styles to choose from.Audrey Hepburn is also known for her classic hair up-dos.  Actress Anne Hathaway also mimics Hepburn’s hair style in such a classy way.
When choosing your style for your wedding, think about what or who inspires and then find a way to make it your own.  You’ll never go wrong with these classic styles that have been worn through out the decades. And make sure to say thank you with these awesome thank you quotes and sayings.
