For those uninterested in princess wedding dresses, prepare to have your head explode from the innovative gorgeousness that is indie-designer Chrissy Wai-Ching Leung's dress line. Hailing from Seattle via Chicago, Hong Kong, and Nice, France, Chrissy specializes in making custom silk wedding dresses that fly (or in some cases float) in the face of over-brocaded poofy white wedding wear. Using hand-dyed silks, each dress is custom made to meet the needs of the bride's tastes and curves, ensuring that your wedding dress is truly one of a kind. Chrissy caters to brides all over the nation via her website, but if you happen to be looking for a Seattle wedding dress, you owe it to yourself to visit her cozy Pioneer Square loft studio where, if you're like me, you'll want to fondle the samples and pet the silk-ribboned pillows for a couple hours. Forget the "white blindness" so common at bridal boutiques — at Wai-Ching you bathe in rich blues and reds and greens. Ariel Author of three editions of the Offbeat Bride book and the forthcoming From Shitshow To Afterglow, Ariel Meadow Stallings acts as the publisher of all the Offbeat Empire websites. She lives in Seattle with her son, and if she's not reading or writing books, chances are good that she's dancing or happy-crying. She writes weekly essays for her new publication, The Afterglow.

It's the dress she wore at her wedding two months ago. It's rainbow color and fabulous, but not on the site. Chrissy is wonderful to work with. I'm so happy to have found her. Mika Reply […] of Chrissy Wai-Ching, who I'm about 99.9% sure made Aimee's awesome dress. Yay for Seattle indie designers! Check out all the wonderful photos from Aimee and Jack's wedding, all courtesy of M Gill […] Reply Oh, how I love these dresses. To think there are others out there creating things like this? Wonderful! Reply OMG i just bought one of her dresses for my wedding in june. they are all so beautiful it took me MONTHS to decide which once to choose, i think finding my dress took us longer than finding our reception site. i can't wait for it to come, and i absolutely love that all of her dresses can be worn more than once, which definitely helps in this economy (yeah…hate to bring up that sad subject but its true) Reply I dont usually comment on blogs but i have to tell you awesome job Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
