Some people may be willing to shell out thousands of dollars for their dream wedding dress. Others get creative and source their inspiration straight from, well, the restroom.
The 15th Annual Toilet Paper Contest, recently held by Charm Weddings and Quilted Northern, brought together some of the most extravagant and ingenious designs you didn't know toilet paper could create.
All the designs from the Top 12 finalists:
Hosted by Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta's Monte Durham, design guru Jeremiah Brent, fashion editor Zanna Roberts Rassi and Trading Spaces' Paige Davis, the annual contest found a winner in South Carolina resident Mimoza Haska and awarded her $10,000 for her "Celestial Rose" dress. The mom-of-two used 48 rolls of Quilted Northern Ultra Plush toilet paper to beat out 1500 other dresses.
Haska, whose fishnet-inspired halter neck dress was the favorite amongst 11 other top finalists, has a particular knack for crochet.
“The technique I use is very strong because the strips of toilet paper are created a little harder by glue, so they actually are as strong, if not stronger than a regular thread,” she said in an interview of the gown, which took 400 hours to make.
