There's nothing wrong with wanting to be the center of attention on your day. One of the easiest ways to achieve that? Wearing a statement wedding gown like a mermaid dress. Not to be confused with the trumpet style dress, which has a similar silhouette, mermaid gowns are defined by their fitted torso and dramatic flared skirt that starts at the knee.

There are a few reasons why mermaid wedding gowns are one of the most popular wedding dress silhouettes: They have an inherently dramatic shape, they accentuate your assets and they easily lend themselves to the glamour and formality of a special occasion like your big day. And while this is one of the most enduring wedding gowns, no two are exactly alike. From heavily beaded numbers that bring the bling, to romantic styles with lots of frothy organza to more minimalist crepe versions, the options for mermaid wedding gowns are extensive.

Get your wish list ready. Below, we rounded up 20 of our favorite mermaid wedding gowns that work for every wedding style and budget.
