(Boca Raton, FL) Weddings can be an expensive endeavor and “saying yes to the dress” can empty your piggy bank. But now there’s an option for those with a creative eye.

The 2017 $10,000 Grand Prize winning design by Kari Curletto of Las Vegas, NV’s annual contest has challenged creative minds from across the country for 15 years to create a wearable, on-trend wedding dress and headpiece from only toilet paper, glue, tape and needle and thread. Luxurious Quilted Northern® toilet paper – crafted with the highest attention-to-detail for over 100 years – will be used to make this year’s wedding dresses.

That is correct: A wedding dress made from toilet paper.

“This year, we have opened up categories for our contestants to enter into,” says Susan Bain, TP Dress Contest Co-Creator. “We are excited about our new categories of Traditional, Modern and Cultural, and know this will add an exciting element to the event,” added Co-Creator Laura Gawne.

The top twelve dresses and their designers will be flown to our Finale Event to participate in a runway fashion show in New York this summer. Representatives of Charm Weddings and Quilted Northern® as well as celebrity judges will be in attendance to judge each design.

The first prize winner will walk away with $10,000 while the second and third prize winners will receive $5,000 and $2,500 respectively.

The contest is officially open and all entries must be submitted by May 22, 2019.
