Woman Wins Big with Toilet Paper Wedding Dress
After weeks of hard work and anticipation, Lake Orchard, Michigan native – Susan Brennan – was named the winner of the Eighth Annual Cheap Chic Weddings Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest, brought to you by Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com and sponsored in part by Charmin.
Final judging took place earlier today at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square Odditorium, where Brennan received a check for $2,012. With over 700 entries this year, participants were required to construct their wedding dresses out of nothing more than Charmin toilet paper, tape, glue and/or needle and thread.
Contest host Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com, which operates as a money-saving website for brides-to-be, began the annual contest eight years ago based on the popular bridal shower game. As the contest has increased in popularity from year to year, so has the level of competition.
“The quality of talent that presents itself each year always amazes us,” says Susan Bain, one of the founders of Cheap Chic Weddings. “This year’s entries included several dresses that had intricate details like faux embroidery, ruffles, pleats and even lace effects.”
