I can't think of a dress vendor who has been our ride-or-die partner as long as Wai-Ching has. These dresses have been a STAPLE of Offbeat Bride readers since we got our start in 2007. I can't imagine having more faith in a dress maker and business than Chrissy Wai-Ching's Seattle-based dress business.
We've long been drooling over her hand-created sustainable wedding wear and distinctive custom dresses in silk, hemp, and other natural fibers. She specializes in custom dresses, bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses, and colorful wedding dresses. They're gorgeous works of art that you get to customize to your dreams and wear with serious pride.
Here's why we continue to cheer on this amazing artisan and ogle every Wai-Ching dress that crosses our path…

Speaking of dreams…
These dresses are what dreams are made of
Whenever we see a Wai-Ching dress pop up in a wedding submitted to us, we always recognize that distinctive style, expressive color, FABULOUS embroidery — we just know it's a Wai-Ching when we see it. And then it's happy dance time.

“Her wedding dresses are beautiful, reasonably priced, and she gets the work done FAST! You might have to wait a bit for an appointment but it is worth it! Every one of her dresses really is a work of art, and is made especially for you. She is also personable and professional and very responsive. ” – Heather H, Yelp
“I was nervous ordering something SIGHT unseen from Boston to her Seattle office, and was definitely nervous, but all those nerves were all for naught. The dress showed up, the color was better than I imagined, and I was COMFORTABLE on my wedding day.
Suck it, Wedding Industrial Complex — you don't need to wear white, spend $5,000 on a dress, and look like a cake topper. You can be YOU on your wedding day, comfortable, eco-conscious and look DAMNED good doing it. ” – M.M. Yelp
“I'm so glad I found Chrissy and Wai-Ching studios. As a plus sized gal, I had a horrendous experience a few years back getting a bridesmaid dress made at a traditional wedding shop, and have had major anxiety about those places since. I tried one traditional wedding store, and had given up on the whole thing. It was miserable. Found Wai-Ching studios on a website, and thought it sounded more like something I could handle. I was not disappointed. The dress fit great, I was so happy with it, and Chrissy went over and beyond to help out with fittings and making me feel comfortable. ” – Antya, Yelp
