Here comes the bride, all dressed in white…toilet paper that is.
Jennifer Cannon, of Lexington, Kentucky, didn’t just don her stylish two-ply extra-soft wedding duds, her wedding actually took place in a restroom in Times Square. Granted, the Charmin restroom was only temporary, and it was actually put up for the promotional event, but still.
Though Cannon wore the dress, it was Hannah Kim, winner of the 2007 Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest sponsored by Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com, who designed the dress.
According to the official rules, entrants in the contest were only allowed to use toilet paper, glue, and tape in the construction of their wedding dresses. Submissions were due in by July 31, 2007 and were judged on creativity, originality, and beauty.
Hannah Kim isn’t all that new to the toilet paper designing world of wedding dresses, though. She actually competed in the same contest just last year and came in second! Well, I guess second best wasn’t quite good enough, and with her first place prize this year, Kim will get to see her design turned into an actual wedding gown. Not an easy feat considering Kim’s intricate detailing!
Oh yeah, and as the overall winner, Kim also received $500 for her efforts. Not bad considering her only expenses were seven rolls of toilet paper! If you want to see pictures of Kim’s wedding gown designs, you can check them out at the Cheap-Chic-Weddings winners’ pages.
And if you want to enter, I’m sure they’ll be having another contest next year. (This year marked the third annual contest.) Why not get an early start?
A wedding dress made from toilet paper?! Who would have thought… I, for one, will be seeing toilet paper in a whole new light from now on!
