Kate Middle-who? The latest bridal-gown sensation will be a vision of toilet paper, glue, and thread. Cheap Chic Weddings.com will once again play host to the Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest—it’s seventh to date—based on the popular wedding-shower game. But don’t mistake the competition for amateur hour at the local craft fair. Previous winners have included a sweeping Gone With the Wind-inspired ball gown—the dress was compared to an Oscar de La Renta couture creation—and a thigh-skimming bustier gown with a plunging sweetheart neckline.

The competition, which will run till June 17, will award $1,000 to the grand-prize winner, $500 to the first runner-up, and $250 to the third runner-up. Winners will be announced on July 7. “We are extremely excited about this year’s contest and look forward to seeing all of the creative entries,” says Laura Gawne, co-founder of Cheap Chic Weddings. “They never cease to amaze us!”
