After weeks of hard work and anticipation, Lake Orchard, Michigan native – Susan Brennan – was named the winner of the Eighth Annual Cheap Chic Weddings Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest, brought to you by Cheap-Chic-Weddings and sponsored in part by Charmin.

Final judging took place earlier today at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square Odditorium, where Brennan received a check for $2,012. With over 700 entries this year, participants were required to construct their wedding dresses out of nothing more than Charmin toilet paper, tape, glue and/or needle and thread.

Contest host Cheap-Chic-Weddings, which operates as a money-saving website for brides-to-be, began the annual contest eight years ago based on the popular bridal shower game. As the contest has increased in popularity from year to year, so has the level of competition.

“The quality of talent that presents itself each year always amazes us,” says Susan Bain, one of the founders of Cheap Chic Weddings. “This year’s entries included several dresses that had intricate details like faux embroidery, ruffles, pleats and even lace effects.”

Charmin is a sponsor of the contest for the second time and provided coupons for contest entrants to help cover the cost of purchasing the rolls of Charmin used in creating each dress, which ranged in amount from 10 rolls to nearly 50 rolls in some cases and featured Charmin Basic, Charmin Ultra Soft and Charmin Ultra Strong designs.

“Charmin is thrilled to once again be a sponsor of the Cheap Chic Weddings Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest,” says Laura Dressman, P&G External Relations Manager. “We’re inspired by these dresses and couldn’t imagine a better way to showcase the Charmin brand in a fun and unique way. Congratulations to Susan Brennan and all the finalists on their fantastic designs.”

Susan Brennan was joined at the finale event by the other two contest finalists. Katrina Chalifoux was the runner-up, and received a check for $1,000, while Jennifer Henry placed third and received a check for $500.
