For over a decade, the Cheap Chic Weddings Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest has challenged creative minds from across the nation to create a wearable, on-trend wedding dress and corresponding headpiece using only Charmin toilet paper, glue, tape and a needle and thread. The annual event shows how Charmin is not only America’s softest bath tissue but it is 4x times the strength of other toilet paper brands making it a perfect material for designers to use to create their dresses and models to wear on the runway.

For the first time ever, the finale event will be broadcast live across multiple online channels. Contestants have until May 15, 2016 to submit their paper masterpieces. Top ten entries will be chosen then online voting will be open to the public.
