CocoMelody, a U.S.-based atelier known for offering affordable wedding gowns from various designers, has officially opened its doors in Manila. The bridal label was only accessible to Pinays online, but now that the global brand has its very own studio in Makati, local brides can try out and see the dresses up close before ordering them. "The biggest problem when shopping online is they're worried about the poor quality," explains Paul of CocoMelody Philippines. "Because we all have these sample dresses [in the studio], people get a sense of what they're going to receive."

The wedding dresses will be made to the bride's exact measurements, and more details can be added to the dress—so it's almost like getting a custom-made piece. 

From lacey mermaid dresses to colored ball gowns, we round up some of their elegant yet surprisingly affordable creations below:
