For non-traditionalist brides who want to eschew a fairytale white wedding dress and wear something that truly reflects an independent, creative and free spirit, finding the right dress, at an acceptable cost, can be quite a task.
Recently, we discovered,Wai-Ching Clothing, by Chrissy Wai Ching, a marvellous Seattle-based designer who has a range of fabulous 'Indie' bridalwear (and a great range of fashion clothing as well).
The good news is that even if you live far away from Seattle, you can still order a dress from Wai-Ching and know that it will fit you perfectly. The studio communicates closely with you to get your measurements and they guarantee a perfect fit.
Their designs can be altered to suit you, and they will happily adapt existing designs, adding, for example, straps, corset backs and trains. Best of all, though, are the prices. Most designer wedding dresses fall above the $2000 mark but a Wai-Ching gown can cost as little as $198.
For a look at some of our favourite designs from the range, click through the image gallery below, and don't forget to visit the website for the full clothing range.
