Top Toilet Paper Wedding Gowns Flushed Out

BOCA RATON, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The economic crisis is really causing the wedding gown industry to go down the toilet.

Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com, a site that helps brides plan nuptials on a budget, just held their 5th Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest inspired by the popular bridal shower game.

After flushing out more than 700 entries, site co-creator Susan Bain helped crown the winner: An elaborate gown made only from TP, glue, and tape in the likeness of a couture Oscar de la Renta piece.

The winning gown and runners-up will be displayed in Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! museums worldwide, giving brides cheap and crafty ideas.

In this economy, Bain says brides could really benefit from wearing toilet paper gowns since they can be made for around $50.

A TP wedding gown can double as Kleenex during a teary ceremony, can be used to decorate a married couple’s farewell car, and can come in handy during a bride’s mid- reception bathroom break.
