(Best Syndication News) - The Eighth Annual Cheap Chic Weddings Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest named a winner today at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square Odditorium in New York City. The winner was Susan Brennan who is from Lake Orchard, Michigan. She worked weeks to prepare her toilet paper wedding dress. The only supplies allowed to create the gowns included Charmin toilet paper, tape, glue, and/or needle and thread.

The contest was put together by Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com and Charmin partly sponsored the event. The Cheap Chic Weddings website is all about putting on a frugal wedding, and this contest makes a bit of fun out of making a cheap wedding dress using toilet paper.

Surprisingly, the wedding gown was quite beautiful. Other entries also amazed Susan Bain, one of the founders of Cheap Chic Weddings. She said that this year the gowns showcased faux embroidery, ruffles, pleats, and simulated lace.

Charmin said that they helped-out the contestants by providing coupons to help cover the expenses of buying the toilet paper. The gowns typically use between 10 and upwards of 50 rolls of the Charmin branded toilet paper.

The winner, Susan Brennan, received a check for $2,012. It was well earned as there was over 700 contest entries this year. The runner up, Katrina Chalifoux received a $1,000 check. Third-place winner, Jennifer Henry, received a check for $500.

Just think, the dress can always be re-purposed for a more practical use afterwards. Now that's saving money!
