This international design house has been serving brides in over 100 countries through online channels and brick + mortar stores for 16 years now. Let me put that in perspective for you. They’ve been around since the age of Tamagotchi! So Cocomelody has seen the evolution of wedding dress trends since the start, and they know their stuff. Spoiler alert: they’ve got an anniversary sale happening right now that will have you running, not walking towards the wedding dress try-at-home feature. But first, let’s look at some highlights of the 2021 collection!
Bold & Captivating
The Low-Down: Shirred detachable arm cuffs, off-the-shoulder swag sleeves, bridal capes, illusion insets
Best For: Glamorous outdoor settings that bring the drama – think coastal clifftops, deserts + canyons, scenic valleys, tree-lined avenues
This figure-flattering spaghetti strap gown is giving us some major “Siren of the Sea” vibes. With an intricate sequin pattern cascading from plunging sweetheart-neck bodice to scalloped hem skirt, the Jana gown vibes effortlessly with a dramatic tulle and lace bridal cape.
Defined by its thousand twinkling lights top to toe, this shimmering beaut boasts sexy detachable swag sleeves, sheer side insets and an A-line silhouette that’s flattering for every body type! Did we mention the embellished arm cuffs that multiply the dazzle factor by infinity?
Graphic Venetian lace is the piece de resistance of this sheath silhouette with a beguiling open back. Or is it those trailing silk panels that flow poetically in the wind? Or wait… the scalloped high slit? I’ll be honest, we can’t keep our favorite features straight… there are so many!
Classic & Romantic
The Low-Down: Decadent embellishments, intricate lace, elegant silhouettes with a modern romantic twist
Best For: Grand, open settings like European-inspired villas, private estates, ballrooms and picturesque meadows
You had us at tulle poet sleeves, Elaina. And then we discovered the structured corset bodice, sequined lace floral motif, detachable overskirt and court length train. One of our favorites from this collection, for sure!
Easy, breezy, beautiful, the Aliza gown is made for fairytale settings with manicured gardens, tree-lined avenues and historic stone terraces. Tulle bow straps and a bold floral motif are the defining features of this ethereal sweeping ballgown, and we are in love, sweet love!
It didn’t take us long to see why Alexa is already a crowd favorite. The 3D lace embroidered appliqués cascade effortlessly from v-neck bodice to A-line skirt with layers upon layers of tulle. Like petals dripping from trees with a light spring breeze. It’s a classic!
The inspiration for this style dates all the way back to the 1800s, and it’s easy to see why the details have stood the test of time. Crystal beading, lace flutter sleeves and a sweet button-back make this gown a no-brainer for lovers of the Bridgerton world. We burn for you, Veda!
Bold & Unconventional
The Low-Down: Daring colors, whimsical beadwork, sequined patterns, twirl power
Best For: Storybook settings with lush gardens, grand ballrooms, enchanting forests or idyllic water views
Brides interested in having a Cinderella moment (and I mean moment) will find their Fairy Godmother in Cocomelody, whose Leyla gown not only shines in a silver cloud hue, but has pockets of all miracles! The combination of dazzling cap sleeves, sparkle tulle skirt and graceful scoop neckline will leave you feeling radiant, no question.
We’re feeling the Disney princess vibes once again with the Erica gown! The shirred off-the-shoulder sleeves with a hint of sparkle will highlight your décolletage in the most demure, yet sensual way. With a skirt that trumpets into a court train to finish, this gown is fit as any for the belle of the ball. See what we did there? 😉
Brides embracing the dark, moody and totally unexpected vibes will flock to the Joyce gown. Its hourglass silhouette harks back to Golden Age of film, while the bold sequined pattern feels a bit like Gatsby. It’s everything we love about the decades that came before and everything we love about those ahead.. lookin’ at you tulle overskirt!

Clean & Sleek
The Low-Down: Sexy jumpsuits, sleek fabrics, body-hugging silhouettes, effortless “cool” vibes
Best For: Modern settings like art galleries, museums, night clubs or rooftops
We were in jumpsuit heaven when we spotted the chiffon Alaya with its pleated wide leg pant silhouette, sleeveless bodice and open back. There’s even a subtle crystal trim along the plunging v-neck and high waist! Worn for a full shindig or as a 2nd look, this jumpsuit is a winner from all angles.
If you’re a sucker for low open backs, the Lara gown will have you hooked. The elegant, modest front with a bateau neckline slips into a court-length train in the most polished fashion. A wonderful fit for anyone looking to elongate their figure and achieve that suave balance of tasteful and sensual.
Mermaid gowns aren’t just for beach weddings, and the Leona gown is the living proof. This timeless style boasts an off-the-shoulder neckline, pearl-buttoned back and satin fabric that even the Queen might break some royal wedding rules for.
Sexy & Bohemian
The Low-Down: Modern lace, open backs, high slits, detailed sleeves
Best For: Beach settings with rocky coves, sunny shores and tropical forests
Claire! Where have you been all our lives?! This scalloped high neck gown with all-over lace in a bold pattern feels like Grace Kelly at the beach… in California… in modern times. The perfect juxtaposition of classic materials and forward-thinking silhouettes.
Floral lace appliqués dance across this long-sleeved bodice, trailing even into the airy chiffon skirt with a thigh-high slit. Worn with a hat, bold headband or just your natural beach hair blowing in the wind, the Melody gown is a beloved style for free-spirited brides.
