Toilet Paper Dress For Your Wedding Day?!


Have you heard of the annual Cheap Chic Weddings Toilet Paper Wedding Dress contest? This is a contest in which a wedding dress and headpiece must be made of Charmin toilet paper. One is allowed to use tape, glue, and needle and thread only (no zippers, clasps, Velcro, or buttons). Apparently the contest is already on it's 10th year, and I'm just now hearing about it! Then again, I'm not a big fashion or wedding fan to begin with lol. Let's be honest! First place winning dress will get $10000, second place will receive $5000, and third place even gets $2500. This year's winner will be chosen on June 12th, 2014 (sorry, this means that submissions are closed) and you can now vote for you favorites out of the top 10 finalists here. Here are the finalist dresses I love:

These are just 2 of the finalists. Go and check out the others and vote for your favorites!
