8 CocoMelody - Dream Wedding Dresses You Can Afford!

I've always been the kind of girl who believed in down-to-earth weddings. A fairy-tale wedding to me is all about heart and goodness. It means not burdening our parents with a marriage ceremony bill, not asking friends and family to subsidize the dinner we invited them to, not starting married lives with a bank debt from an extravagant do. To me, this is the moment to be lavish with love - it's about 'giving'.

We flew our relatives in and told them - this trip and the dinner was on us. We wanted to share our joy with them. We wanted to begin our married life on a good vibe.

I walked down the restaurant aisle with my best friend of ten years. I'm a simple, practical person. People worried about my hair which wasn't salon-styled and what I wore for the wedding, which I had gotten off the rack of a regular boutique. I didn't pay for a rented dress that had been worn countless times or fork out an exorbitant sum for a new one. 

How I wish I'd known about online stores like CocoMelody then! It never crossed my mind to purchase a wedding dress off the internet. A good friend recommended me to this website; I was really impressed with the designs and affordability of the dresses. Keyword: affordability. And the fact that these dresses are new.

Here are a couple of my favourite picks:

CocoMelody | Left: Pretty A-Line Strapless Knee Length Wedding Dress - USD69(60% off) *
Right: Sweet A-Line Strapless Natural Knee Length Tulle Ivory Sleeveless
Zipper Wedding Dress with Appliques and Removable Train - USD134 (60% off) *

Born and bred an islander, a beach wedding had been on my mind since I was a teenager. This was before I moved to the big city. Dreams change. But, should things have turned out differently and the wedding by the seaside made true; if I had to choose a gown, beach wedding dresses would have been my preference.

These dresses are light and airy - perfect for outdoor settings. The material is designed to compliment the Bride's figure so that she will still look ravishing against the gust of wind or breeze.

Zipper With Button Wedding Dress with Beading and Flower- USD89 (60%Off) *

I personally prefer short wedding dresses or tea-length wedding dresses for freedom of movement. I'd want to be able to stand up quickly to greet the elders as they approach as I feel it is the respectful thing to do. I'm completely in love with this one (pictured below) which I saw from CocoMelody's 2016 wedding dresses collection. It was going  for only USD139, at 60% off its original price!

Which begs the question - why rent when you can buy? It's affordable as you can see from the prices I've shared here. One beautiful dress of your dreams (that you actually own) for your moment of a lifetime. A memento to be kept for next generation.

Aah ..although my special day has passed long ago, it doesn't mean that I can't still get a dress. Perhaps a wedding vow renewal at the tenth year mark? That's not too far away.

Meantime, I have good news for those planning to purchase a dress now - CocoMelody is running a sale campaign which ends on 30th January 2016. Use the codes below to get a discount!
