I DO think you’ll agree these wedding dresses are impressive — made out of toilet paper. The 10th Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress contest held in New York City announced its winners yesterday and they include:
First place: Romance on a Roll by 28-year-old Susan Brennan of Orchard Lake, Mich. The designer and professional cheerleader for the Detroit Pistons is a yoga enthusiast who also won the grand prize in 2011 and 2012. Her 2014 design was a full-length gown that included a flapper dress underneath. It took her more than a month to complete the dress.
Second place: Katrina Chalifoux, of Knoxville, Tenn., won $5,ooo for her flowing design. Third place: Amber Mills, of Hurst, Texas, won $2,500 for her dress — made of vintage blue Charmin.
The amazing dresses included beading, pleats and lace all made of toilet paper. To see all the 10 finalists, visit www.Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com to see more dresses and the designers.
The contest is the brainchild of Laura Gawne and Susan Bain, who operate Cheap-Chic-weddings.com. It is sponsored by Charmin.
Entrants are permitted to use hot glue, tape, needle and thread and more to complete dresses. They were judged on creativity, originality, beauty and the use of toilet paper.
