Jun '08
Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com announced the winner of their fourth annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress contest at a ceremony at Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium, Times Square.

Three finalists were flown in from Illinois, Texas and Hawaii to showcase their hand-made, intricately detailed dresses which look like regular wedding gowns in front of a panel of judges.

Laura Gawne and partners Susan Bain and Roxie Radford, who operate the website on saving money on weddings, based the contest on the popular bridal shower game.

Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com asked their readers to create wedding gowns and headpieces strictly using Charmin bath tissue, glue and/or tape no sequins, beads or other "normal" wedding dress adornments.

"The level of talent that presents itself each year always amazes us," said Laura Gawne. Roxie Radford added, "The entries included details like faux embroidery, ruffles, pleats and lace effects!"

This year's first place winner, Katrina Chalifoux of Rockford, IL received a $1,000 American Express gift card. The dresses from all three finalists will be displayed in Ripley's Believe It or Not Museums! Around the world.

Charmin bath tissue and Ripley's Believe It or Not! sponsored this year's top prizes.
