Ok, so some brides will go to any length to win money (or be on a blog/local newspaper) for their wedding. This year, over 1,000 brides heard the call and raided their local Target, Walmart, Pathmark, Piggly Wiggly etc. to grab rolls of the fluffy-soft stuff, in the hopes of creating the winning ‘wedding dress’.
After much consideration – I mean they had to make sure it was ‘soft’, flowed nicely and was multi-ply as to not be seen through, detailing etc…they named Susan Brennan from Orchard Lake MI the winner. Susan won $1000.00 for her beautiful toilet paper gown creation. Inspired by nature. She used flowers and feathers and balanced the dress with pleats on the bodice. She is in my consideration an eco-friendly bride because she only used 4 rolls of Toilet Paper, hot glue, and packing tape.
The second prize winner Laura Lee from Milpitas, CA (she won $500) With a look toward ‘how a new bride feels. Along with her friend Michelle’s help, she used 5 rolls of one-ply Toilet Paper, transparent duct tape, first aid tape and spray adhesive.
The third and winner of $250 Cynthia Richards from Marietta, GA said that her dress was inspired by her business partner’s dream. She and her 8 year old daughter used 20 rolls of Toilet Paper, Duct Tape, Hot Glue, Mod Podge Glue and Fabric Glue. (I think she was channeling St. Pucchi because they are known for voluminous dresses).
While I would hate to see what happens during a rain storm, these dresses will come in handy for the ‘weepy-bride’. Just be careful and use only 1-ply. Anything more could flash a bit too much for your guests.
