Every bride's dream, a toilet paper gown

April 19, 2012 at 2:50 PM   |   Comments

BOCA RATON, Fla., April 19 (UPI) -- The call is out in the United States and Canada for anyone who can create a wedding gown from toilet paper, and contest organizers say first prize is $2,012.

The eighth annual "Toilet Paper Wedding Gown Contest," sponsored by Charmin, Proctor & Gamble's toilet tissue division, and a Florida-based Web site devoted to "cheap chic" weddings, was announced Thursday.

Contestants, who must be 18 or older, are to make a wedding dress of Charmin toilet paper and then submit photographs of the creation. The only other materials allowed are tape, glue and thread.

The organizers pointed out, in a statement, that the competition is directed to those for whom "saving money on weddings is more than a hobby and a little less than an obsession."

Wedding gown creators have until June 1 to complete their entries. The winner will receive a $2,012 prize, with $1,000 for second place and $500 for third, at an event in late June hosted by the "Ripley's Believe It or Not! Times Square Odditorium" in New York.

The rules do not limit the number of rolls that can be used in creating the gowns, and made no mention of what to do with those small cardboard tubes.
