Are you feeling super creative and ambitious? What about creating a wedding dress out of toilet paper from scratch to win a grand? Roxie, Laura and Susan of Cheap Chic Weddings is hosting their seventh annual “Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest” based on the classic wedding shower game where contestants create a gown made of toilet paper. The contest will run from May 5, 2011 to June 17, 2011. Winners will be announced on July 7, 2011.

The Grand Prize winner will receive $1000, the second place winner will receive $500 and the third place winner will receive $250.

Here’s How to Enter:

1. Plan your design.

2. Enlist a friend’s help (optional)

3. Grab some Toilet Paper, Tape and/or Glue and/or Needle and Thread (that’s all you can use)!

4. Make the dress on your model or mannequin and take some digital photos (front, back and side). Video clips are welcome but not necessary.

All photos and video are to be submitted to Cheap Chic Weddings at There is no entry fee. The Official Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Judging Panel at Cheap Chic Weddings will judge the digital photo entries.

Last year’s winner Galit Zeierman found inspiration in nature to come up with the winning design. Check out the other finalists from 2010.
