Every bride wants their day to be the most perfect day of their life; they want every single part of the wedding nailed depending on their specific requests. Because, believe you me, the person that gets in the way of a bride getting what she wants is a person you don’t want to be near when it hits the fan! However, in reality we don’t all have the budgets to get a dream wedding with all the bells and whistles included, even if they do say that money is no object when it comes to weddings. That still hasn’t put people off though, and women have turned to alternative ways to get the dream wedding they desire, but without spending an absolute fortune. However, I’m not entirely sure that many women will go down the root of making a wedding dress out of toilet paper…
The dress is possibly one of the most important parts of the wedding. If the dress isn’t right, the whole thing can fall apart (you only have to watch an episode of the BBC’s Don’t Tell the Bride to discover just how seriously the act of picking a wedding dress is taken, but that’s probably why the man traditionally stays out of the process). These days it’s been known for women to go into a shop or look on the Internet for a style they want, and then order the style to be made from the burgeoning wedding dress industry over in China. It can save you a lot of money, but you do have to make sure you choose a decent enough dressmaker that it won’t fall apart as soon as you put it on. I have to admit that this toilet paper dress looks pretty stylish – although I’m no fashion guru so don’t take my advice – and while it’s cheap it’s probably skating the line at ‘too cheap’ and you’d definitely be a bit worried that it could fall apart at any second.
Oh, and there’s also the small fact that if it rains you’re going to be very much dress-less in no time at all.
This incredible dress was made using 11 rolls of toilet paper, glue and some tape – finished off with a gold accent made from gold tape! The result is a look that ends up looking like a dress you could pay thousands of pounds for. See more pictures from the designer here.
Surprisingly there’s even more toilet paper wedding dresses out there on the Internet. A website called Cheap-Chic-Weddings ran a competition (amusingly sponsored by toilet paper manufacturer Charmin) to find the best Toilet Paper Wedding Dress, giving $10,000 to the winner. That’s a good chunk of cash to put towards a wedding. The winner is pictured above, but be sure to go to the site to see some of the other creations.
Would you wear a toilet paper wedding dress? Or is it far too tacky for your taste? Since I’m actually getting married in 2016 I can put this question to the other half, although I’m pretty sure that the answer will be “no way”. That’s a pity as I could definitely have done with the spare cash!
