Can you use toilet paper to make a beautiful wedding dress? If you can, you just might win $2,012.
Everyone likes to save money here and there. And for some, saving money on weddings is more than a hobby, and a little less than an obsession. Laura Gawne, Roxie Radford and Susan Bain operate the popular website
The Eighth Annual Cheap Chic Weddings “Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest” is sponsored by Charmin. The contest began April 18 and winners will be announced at an event hosted by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square Odditorium on June 27. Cheap Chic Weddings also welcomes new sponsor Life In Mobile Inc. to this year’s contest.
The grand prize winner will receive $2,012, the second place winner will receive $1,000 and the third place winner will receive $500.
Here’s how to enter:
First: Plan your design.
Second: Enlist a friend’s help (optional)
Third: Grab some Charmin toilet paper, tape and/or glue and/or needle and thread (that’s all you can use).
Fourth: Make the dress on your model or mannequin and take some digital photos (front, back and side). Video clips are welcome but not necessary.
All photos and video are to be submitted to Cheap Chic Weddings at by June 1 at 10 p.m. There is no entry fee. The judging panel at Cheap Chic Weddings will judge the digital photo entries.
“Each year, the contest gets better and better. We are all excited to see the fantastic entries!” said Laura Gawne of Cheap Chic Weddings.
