Wai-Ching does it again #Fashion#BIPOC#colorful#seattle#wai-ching#washington Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Feb 2 2009) Ariel findyourafterglow Yes, I'm a longtime fan of Wai-Ching dresses, and even wore one to my book release party. But with this silk dress, Chrissy Wai-Ching has truly outdone herself. No seriously: I love that Chrissy made the groom's dramatic silk tie to match … but really you haven't lived until you've seen the back of the dress. That's where the real party is goin' on… To see more amazing photos of Adana & Orion's May 2008 wedding, head on over to Totten Photography. And to ogle more Wai-Ching dresses, head on over to Wai-Ching.com. (And many thanks to Sara for emailing me about these amazing photos!)

PREVIOUS My vintage DIY invitations NEXT My DIY skull theme Show/Hide comments [ 27 ] wow! Reply I was already thinking about getting a Wai-Ching dress… this dress has made up my mind! Its so beautiful! Reply i love how colorful it is! colorful weddings make me so happy. more brides should keep in mind that you don't have to stick to 2 or 3 colors (usually black, white and an accent color or two). you can use as many colors as you like! definitely makes for a more "fun" feel + interesting wedding photos forever. Reply wow.. it's looks like she's shedding parts of her dress as flower petals. 🙂 cool pic, too. Yay, Wai Ching! Reply Woah! That dress is no less than amazing. How much do these dresses cost? Must check out this website. Reply Uh, okay, I just checked out the Wai Ching website, and once again I am kicking myself that I didn't find Offbeat Bride and all the cool vendors she knows of until AFTER my wedding. Those dresses are not only out of this world, they're not even expensive!!! Reply gorgeous! love chrissy. i can't even say how much i want the inca, even though i have no where to wear it. Reply So gorgeous!! I'm glad I'm getting a Wai-Ching… but it's not quite as colourful! Damn!! Envy right here! Reply talk about COLOR SPLASH! SO fantastic!!! Reply HOLY CRAP. Reply HOLY COLORFUL CRAP!!! Reply YES!!!!! It got on woo!!!! Reply OMG WHAT A BEAUTIFUL BRIDE!!!!!!!! And I LOOOOVVVEEEE her fabulous natural hair! I wish there were more natural-haired brides on this site. That literally took my breath away! I have to have that dress, that hair, those sunny colors. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! Reply Gorgeous bride, but that dress is a little bit project runway looking to me… I do love some of the other Wai Ching dresses though. Reply She seriously just keeps getting better and better! I hope one day to be able to buy one of her dresses and then I plan to wear it to each and every special occasion. Reply So, I remember looking at the dresses before. I don't remember why I ruled her out before. But all I know is that I am ordering one for my wedding.. like now. I have been looking and looking for the perfect dress and I have finally found it. Reply STUNNING! I loved my wedding dress, but seeing pictures like this still makes me almost second-guess not getting a Wai-Ching…. Reply I WANT THAT DRESS!!!!! i dont see it on the website.. anyone have any info? Reply Chrissy does tons of custom work, including the dress in these photos. You just need to contact her. Reply I think they both look stunning! it's impossible not to feel special when you wear a dress like that! Reply thanks ariel! so that means she could make one that fits my womanly figure ;D Reply I love wai-ching! I would die if i could afford to have the multi colored wedding gown they have on their website right now that looks similar to the one in the picture above! Reply […] Weddings – specifically weddings that really reflect the personality of the couple. Ex: this dress. Perfect for this wedding. […] Reply Surreal… I know this couple, or the bride at least 🙂 She's an old friend from high school. She looks stunning in such a wonderful dress! Reply Amazing! I definitely want Wai Ching to design my dress. Now, if only I weren't on the opposite coast… Reply Beautiful! I too would love Wai Ching to do my dress, but living in England it doesn't appear too practical 🙁 Reply I wouldn't worry Millicent, I am ordering my dress from her and I live in england. My tip is to go to a "traditional" bridal shop in the UK ( as they will be more exact than if you do it yourself), get yourself measured and then send chrissy the measurements. I have already began correspondance with her and I can already say that she is a lovely woman and very accomodating to all suggestions 🙂 Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
