Some brides opt for lace, others for silk – but how about toilet paper?
Designer Van Tran, from Brooklyn, New York, used 10 rolls of Charmin Extra to craft an elegant floor-length gown.
The dress took first place, worth $10,000, at the 12th Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest presented by Cheap Chic Weddings and Charmin in New York City last month.
Tran's gown, which comes with a toilet paper shawl, is held together by duct tape. Contestants were only allowed to use toilet paper, tape, glue and a needle and thread.
A model who tried on Tran's creation was impressed.
"It just feels like a regular dress,” she told Inside Edition. “It's exciting. It makes me feel like a real bride."
