Consider a mermaid gown with intricate seashell beadwork for a touch of aquatic charm, or a veil adorned with delicate pearl embellishments for subtle elegance. In addition, the trend of designing wedding dresses with sustainable ocean materials is on the rise. This includes cryptically using recycled ocean plastics, or designing a dress adorned with genuine seashells, adding an absolutely magical touch to your oceanic theme.

For brides with a boho vibe, a crown made of seashells or a headband with pearl details can complete the beachy look. Your hair should tell a part of your wedding's story, making each detail remarkable and outstanding.
