Crowned the winner of the 11th annual Cheap Chic Weddings Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest, Donna Pope Vincler, of Brentwood, Tennessee, will also get to see her dress turned into a real ready-to-wear item available for sale in certain stores.

Ms. Vincler's design reflects a certain Southern elegance with the top hat and veil, tailored bodice with bow tie, and long, flowing train covered in flowers. It's as if all she needed to do was detach her train and she'd be ready for a ride or a hunt.

(Isn't Charmin that squeezable brand? :rolleyes:)

FTFY


It's all very Charmin', but a little bog standard.

They could use the tubes to support the tiers of the wedding cake.

It made me smile because the one thing female friends have confessed (when showing their wedding albums) is "I was dying for a wee, but it took two people to help me in and out of the stall!"
