Wedding Dresses Made Out Of Toilet Paper Look Better Than You Think

Toilet paper wedding dresses, really?

Yes, they're a thing and there's even an annual Cheap Chic Weddings Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest sponsored by Charmin that champions women who go all-out to create the perfect gown.

The year's contest was hosted by at the Sanctuary Hotel in New York City and first place went to Susan Brennan, a former Detroit Pistons cheerleader and designer.

Take a look at dress that bagged her $10,000 in prize money.

Susan's dress ticks boxes when it comes to traditional, floor-length, romantic wedding gowns and it also features a detachable skirt with fringe detailing.

Perfect for hitting the dancefloor at the reception. Though, would it really see you through the big day without any wardrobe malfunctions? What about in a red wine spillage situation?

The dress took an impressive 17 Ultra Soft two-ply rolls of Charmin to make and Susan is clearly a total pro in the toilet paper dress making arena because she also won in 2011 and 2012.

Katrina Chalifoux came in at second place for this strapless layered ball gown style.

Hats off to these ladies, because they've done an amazing job of making toilet roll look good. Plus, if we didn't already know - we'd never guess they weren't made from silky, satin and lace.
