Yes, that's right! Wedding Dresses made of toilet paper. Who would have ever thought something so beautiful could come from an everyday personal hygiene product?
For the last seven years these ladies have showed us what we can really do with our Charmin.
As the 7th Annual Contest was flushed with talent, one lucky winner, Susan Brennan brought home the Grand Prize of $1000 for her take on the toilet paper fashion.
The contest, held by Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com in Boca Raton, Florida, announced the winner of their seventh annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress contest earlier today.
Grand Prize winner Susan Brennan of Orchard Lake, MI entered a classically styled dress.
CONGRATULATION SUSAN!!! Susan takes home Top Prize and $1000.00 for her beautiful toilet paper gown creation. Inspired by nature. She used flowers and feathers and balanced the dress with pleats on the bodice. She used 4 rolls of Toilet Paper, hot glue, and packing tape.
This year’s second place winner is Laura Lee of Milpitas, CA and third place goes to Cynthia Richards of Marietta, GA. Laura wins $500 for her design and Cynthia wins $250 for her entry. Laura Lee used 5 rolls of one-ply Toilet Paper, transparent duct tape, first aid tape and spray adhesive. Her friend Michelle helped her put the dress together. Cynthia used 20 rolls of Toilet Paper, Duct Tape, Hot Glue, Mod Podge Glue and Fabric Glue. Her 8 year old daughter Rainey helped her with her dress.
Laura Gawne and partners Susan Bain and Roxie Radford, who operate the website on saving money on weddings, base the contest on the popular bridal shower game. Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com asked their readers to create wedding gowns using toilet paper, tape and/or glue. Entrants were allowed to sew as well.
“The top dresses this year showed incredible attention to detail.” Said Laura Gawne. Roxie Radford added, “We are always amazed at the level of talent of the contestants!” Cheap Chic Weddings was excited to welcome back Jack Jones of Boca Raton Bridal as a guest judge.
Dresses were judged on Creativity, Originality, Beauty and the use of Toilet Paper.
