WEDDING season is in full swing, but one group of women decided to go pretty nontraditional with their gowns.
They may be white, full length and covered in intricate detail, but that’s where the similarity with usual bridal dresses ends… because these gowns are all made out of loo roll.
They were part of the 13th annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress competition in New York, which was held at the end of last month.
We previously brought you the lowdown on those competing in the event, which is held every summer wedding season.
Competitors have to create a dress using just toilet paper, with the contest run by Cheap-Chic-Weddings.
Laura Gawne, who runs the company with her sister Susan Bain, told the New York Post: “We look for creations that look like real wedding gowns that rival couture designs.
“But of course they’re made out of toilet paper.”
And as is obvious from the stunning pictures, people really go all out with the designs.
From skirts which are made to look like lace to flowing trains, it’s amazing how intricate some of the dresses are. There were even pretty bouquets made from loo roll, and they look just like roses.
The winner was Kari Curletto, whose dress boasted a 6-foot long detachable train.
She got a good prize too, taking home a check for $10,000 (£7,680) and the knowledge that her creation would be displayed at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum in New York.
