Feeling a little creative? We just got this press release and had to share it with you!

“Can you use toilet paper to make a beautiful wedding dress? If you can, you just might win $1,000!

Everyone likes to save money here and there. And for some, saving money on weddings is more than a hobby, and a little less than an obsession. Roxie Radford, Laura Gawne and Susan Bain operate the popular Web site www.cheap-chic-weddings.com.

This year, they will host their sixth 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 April 5, 2010 to May 15, 2010. Winners will be announced on June 4, 2010.

The Grand Prize winner will receive $1,000, the second place winner will receive $500 and the third place winner will receive $250.

Here’s How to Enter:

First: Plan your design.

Second: Enlist a friend’s help (optional)

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

Fourth: 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 TPdresscontest@gmail.com. There is no entry fee. The Official Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Judging Panel at Cheap Chic Weddings will judge the digital photo entries.

“We are very excited about this year’s contest and look forward to seeing all of the beautiful entries. They never cease to amaze us!” said Laura Gawne of Cheap Chic Weddings.

Official contest rules can be found at www.Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com.

Last year’s Grand prize winner Ann Kagawa Lee (pictured above) found inspiration in the movie Gone With the Wind and combined that with Japanese Origami to come up with the winning design.”

Who would have thought that toilet paper could be glamorous?!  Have fun beautiful brides!
