Color Us Happy ~ Non-Traditional Wedding Inspiration from Designer Wai-Ching!

We were on a search for colorful wedding gowns - splashes, dashes, sprays, name it! Color is the big thing right now and we couldn't be more excited because it's time to turn tradition on its arse and bring in some beautiful hues!

Well, we not only found color, but we found eco-conscious, beautifully constructed raw silk couture gowns from Chrissy Wai-Ching, a Seattle-based designer whose special gowns are a favorite among brides with a funky, off-beat style. You can see her collection on her site,, but we've featured some of our favorites here and even did a little mini-inspiration board for each gown.
