I freaking love Chrissy. I had a horrible time trying to find a dress that worked for me-- I am not a "girly" girl, and didn't want a classic white gown, or anything with poof or sequins or tulle. Enter Chrissy. She is an artist, and was able to work with the elements that I DID like to make a dress that really felt like ME. She designed a gorgeous silk ivory-to-forest green ombre tree-inspired wedding dress specifically for me! People are still raving about it two weeks later. Also, by the end of the dress designing process I felt like Chrissy was my sister or something. I almost cried when I went to pick up the dress-- it had been a long road, but Chrissy was there with me every step of the way. She is amazing.

If a white, poofy wedding dress isn’t for you…then please look up Chrissy Wai-Ching. She is a true artist of fabric who works out of Pioneer Square in Seattle (she also accepts online orders). Her creations are made of silk so they are light and flowy. I live in Seattle, so I was able to visit her Seattle location to try on some dresses. I’m not super skinny, but she did have a few different styles that I could try on. I decided on the Panderetta. Her dresses are basically custom made. I got to choose the color of the ties on the back of the dress, the color I wanted it dip dyed, the color of the embroidery and even adding sheer cap sleeves. She makes the dress to fit your measurements and any alterations are free. The price is amazing for the works of art she creates. Considering what I probably would have been willing to spend on a wedding dress, she saved me a good $250-$350. In addition to all that, Chrissy was a friendly and accommodating person to work with. Everybody including my groom and myself LOVED my dress.

I came across Chrissy's website several years ago, and loved her artistic, colorful take on wedding dresses. I'm so glad I remembered her when it came time to choose my own dress. She is friendly, professional, and very easy to work with. The dress she made me looked gorgeous and fit perfectly. I highly recommend Wai-Ching for everyone looking for a unique custom dress at a reasonable price.

Where do I start?! The whole process of getting a dress made by Chrissy was so easy and so much fun. How often do any of us get to have a dress made to order?? I was drawn to Wai-Ching because I was looking for a dress with color- the things this lady can do with color on a wedding dress will blow your mind! I ended up going with a dress that was mostly ivory with the ties and train dip-dyed in green, and it was just perfect for me. You won't get a very traditional bridal gown here- but she does cater to a wide range of tastes. She's super duper easy to work with and has fantastic prices to boot. If you're in Seattle, a trip to her studio is a total treat, I'm just sorry I won't have more reasons to swing by now that my dress is made! As a final note- she can alter her dresses post-wedding into a dress that you can wear for another occasion. How awesome is that??

I ordered my dress from online without even having tried on dresses that had similar shapes, so it was a leap of faith but I had a feeling that Chrissy's Khandro dress was the one for me--and it was! My dress was so beautiful, there are no words to describe how I felt wearing that dress. I emailed Chrissy my measurements which I had a local seamstress take and she and her team created a gorgeous dress. When I got the dress it needed a few small alterations which I had done locally, but it wasn't like I could go in for fittings since I was in Ohio and she was in Washington. The actual fabric of the dress was so amazing, and so light! If you like Wai-Ching dresses you should get one! They are even more beautiful in person than they look in pictures, and so well made. Chrissy is super easy to work and I highly recommend her!

Get a dress from Wai-Ching. Chrissy is so wonderful to work with, and her dresses are simply gorgeous.

I bought the Khandro dress for my wedding in September. The moment I walked into her studio, I knew I'd want a dress from there. She is so laid back and wasy to work with--I didn't feel any pressure at all. Chrissy was always very responsive and prompt. The dress was done right when she said it would be, a few small changes and a final fitting, and it was ready to take home!

It was so beautiful, and SO comfortable. At 2 in the morning, having been on my feet all day and dancing most of the night, I was still perfectly comfortable in the dress! It in no way required "maintenance" in the way that some dresses do--I didn't have to worry about it sliding down or looking weird at all the whole day. And, because Chrissy sewed my strapless bra with a dart into the front of the dress, and made a loop for it to go through in the back, I didn't even have to worry about it peeking out.

I LOVE my wedding dress!!!

If you're looking for something unique and beautiful then a Wai-Ching dress is what you want!
I'd been searching high and low for a vegan wedding dress to no avail until I found Chrissy Wai-Ching!

She creates the most beautiful and unique dresses I've ever seen!
I got so many compliments on my dress and even my more traditional family who were upset I wasn't going with white at first absolutely adored it!

My dress was made exactly to my measurements so had that perfect custom fit. Chrissy was wonderful to work with and very responsive. I would highly recommend Wai-Ching for any of your dress needs!

Chrissy made both of our wedding dresses - we flew out to Seattle in March to meet with her and get measured and pin down the specifics. We got the dresses in July. They needed minor alterations, which is to be expected with a custom piece. The dresses were absolutely gorgeous - completely handmade and one of a kind. They were super light and perfect for our hot weather wedding. I would have liked a little more communication in the way of updates between March and July, but I tend to prefer updates in general. I would highly recommend Chrissy's work - it's beautiful and such an incredible value - a work of art really.

I know every bride thinks this, but I had the most beautiful dress in the world. Chrissy personally designs your dress if you go the custom route, and you will not be sorry. They are unique and just lovely. I still have guests come up and tell me how much the loved it! Also, Chrissy was a dream to work with. When I had to return my dress as the colors were not quite what I was expecting, she took it back happily and altered free of charge. She also adjusted the sizing as it was a bit too big initially. I was very nervous about having to send it back (I got it one month before the wedding) but she had it shipped so I had the dress a week before the wedding (She is in WA, I'm in UT). Perfect! If you're looking for a unique dress, you won't be sorry.
