Carrollton mom designs toilet paper wedding dress
CARROLLTON, TX – Beautiful, elegant and stunning. We're wowed by a wedding dress that's fit to flush down the toilet. No, really. It's made entirely out of Charmin toilet paper, y'all!
The designer is Toni Araujo of Carrollton. This wife and mother's impressive paper piece is on a roll, landing her as a finalist in Cheap Chic's Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest.
"I wasn't sleeping. I would drop the kids off at school, stay up until two o' clock in the morning. I got my dress in at 9:59 and the deadline was 10 o' clock," Araujo explained.
It took 11 rolls of TP to create the stunning sheath. And now, you can say her hard work and unconventional fabric has her on the porcelain throne.
"They called me and I was screaming. I was so excited. I didn't think I'd make the top 10!"
Who knew Charmin could be so chic?
The winner will be announced at Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City. You know, the shop featured on TLC's hit show, Say Yes to the Dress!
Now, Toni's hoping the judges will say "yes" to her dress! You can support our local designer and vote everyday until June 17.
Good luck, Toni!
