What Are These Stunning Wedding Dresses Made Of?

If you're wearing a dress like this on your wedding day, you might want to stay indoors.

Cheap Chic Weddings, an online resource dedicated to all things budget-friendly matrimony, teamed up with Charmin, a paper resource dedicated to all things your butt, to host the 12th Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Contest to allow amateur designers a chance to prove that TP couture is anything but crappy.

This year's competition saw over 1,500 entries with styles ranging from bohemian to conservative and vintage to modern.

Each contestant was asked to use only Charmin brand toilet paper, tape, and glue to create their designs - and were only given eight weeks to 'make it work'.

The winning entry (pictured above) belonged to Etsy shop owner/freelance fashion designer, Van Tran.

As winner, Van won a grand prize of $10,000, plus her dress will remain on exhibit at a Ripley's Believe It Or Not museum!

Would you consider wearing one of these toilet paper dresses to a wedding (or maybe another special occasion)?

@danidee more or less, like before I started to try, I knew how to make things like simple plushies or pillows. But I do say to start off with patterns or updating old clothes, that way you have any idea how things go together before you try doing something from scratch. lol I tried doing something from scratch my first time and it was horrible mistake

@TehDL Lol that reminds me of my high school's sewing class. The first few pieces they tried to make were such a fail.
