Just in time for wedding season, it’s time to announce the top 10 finalists of the Cheap Chic Weddings Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest. Yep, you read that right. Toilet paper wedding dresses! As surprising as it might sound, each dress that was entered into this contest was made solely from Charmin toilet paper, glue, tape and a needle and thread. Pretty amazing, right?
This marks the fifth year that Charmin has partnered with Cheap Chic Weddings by providing coupons to help cover the cost of purchasing Charmin toilet paper used in creating each dress. The softness combined with the strength of Charmin makes it the perfect material for designers to use to create their dresses and models to wear on the runway. I have to say, it’s hard to believe that each one was made entirely of toilet paper. They truly are stunning!
I had a chance to check out the top 10 finalists, and while I am so impressed with all of them, this one using 30 rolls of Charmin Basic is my favorite. Designed by Judith Henry, each large section of lace required 3 1/2 yards of twisted toilet paper and took three hours to construct and apply. Making the lace alone took over 80 hours. Simply amazing and so gorgeous!
Each finalist will be showcasing their dresses at a finale fashion show event on Haven Rooftop at the Sanctuary Hotel in New York City on June 16th. For the first time ever, the finale will also be live streamed on Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com to allow fans near and far to be a part of the contest fun. The first prize winner will walk away with $10,000 while the second and third prize winners will receive $5,000 and $2,500 respectively.
