Toilet Paper Wedding Dresses
You have always been an eccentric person who dresses in edgy pieces of clothing and you want to express your unique style even on your wedding day. And what better way to do this than by choosing a non traditional gown meant to shock everybody. But how far are you willing to go? Are you capable of wearing a toilet paper wedding dress? Maybe it is a bit too much. But in case you change your mind, learn that there are wedding gowns made out of toilet paper.
What is more, you can create one on your own, as did so many women. Of course, they did wear their unique creations on their wedding day, but have competed against one another for a prize of $1,000. Did I get you intrigued? Well, there is a contest known as the Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest and it takes place every year. In 2011, the 7th edition took place and the winner was a woman from Orchard Lake, Michigan.
The developer of the Cheap Chic Weddings website came with this idea as a way to promote the site. But the contest was such a hit that it became an annual event. The rules are simple: the materials that can be used to create the wedding gown are toilet paper rolls, glue, duck tape and needlework fibers; no expensive materials are allowed.
You have to be really creative and you need to be very patient in order to succeed in completing this project. But the results, as you can see from the pictures, are mind-blowing. It seems incredible that the dresses are actually made out of toilet paper.
This style might not be what you were looking for to wear in the most important day of your life. But you do have to admit that the idea is peculiar and wearing such a wedding dress would definitely be a fashion statement. If you are curious to experience this unique feeling, you can enter the competition next year and create your original wedding gown. Who knows, you might even be the first runner up.
