The 2016 Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest presented by Cheap Chic Weddings and Charmin
Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com, an online company specializing in providing brides with fiscally savvy tips for a fabulous wedding, teamed up with Charmin for the sixth time to host the 12th Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest. We here at Ripley’s couldn’t be more excited to be sponsoring such a creative event!
The contest began on March 7, 2016, with submissions coming in from all over the country.
The rules for the contest were simple:
- Contestants had to use Charmin brand toilet paper
- They were allowed to use any type of tape and/or any type of glue
- They could also use needle and thread
- The dress must be able to be worn by a human and be able to be taken on and off

Submissions closed on May 15, 2016, and now the Top Ten finalists have been announced! We’ll show you the top ten looks here, and then you can head over to the Contest Website and cast your vote to determine the fan favorite. You can vote for as many dresses as you like, but only once per dress per day. So if you really want your voice to be heard, be sure to go back each day and cast your vote for your favorites.
