Wedding Dresses ~ The TP Edition

 My sweet friend Alicia from The Charity Wedding was also so kind to guest post for me today.  She swooped in at the last minute to help me and with two glasses of vino in her put together a piece of Friday Wedding Hilarity! Read, enjoy, and head into your weekend giggling. 🙂


Hello Niche White readers! I am so excited to be here today with you. Nicole has a busy week and she needed a little help to keep her blog flowing with goodness, so that is where I come in. I wasn’t really sure what I was going to post and I didn’t have a ton of time to figure it out so I decided to head to her blog for inspiration. As you know, she always posts the latest fashion trends, eye-catching photos, unique ideas, and things you just don’t expect to look as fabulous as they do, but of course they do look fabulous. Out of nowhere, the thought of wedding dresses made of toilet paper popped in my head. Bear with me friends, it was late, I had a long day, and I was already on my second glass of pinot grigio. Now don’t get me wrong I am not trying to insinuate that dresses made of 2-ply are the latest fashion trend but I can assure you what I found is both unique and eye-catching not to mention pretty much fabulous. These are NOT the crap dresses that you made at your bridal shower during one of the games that no one likes to play. Prepare to be amazed.

Alright so this one is pretty much artsy and probably not real. BUT let me tell you there are some that are real.

Yep this is real and made completely out of what you wipe with.

Be honest, if I didn’t tell you, would you have known? Absolutely no way.

So come to find out, there is an entire contest dedicated to dresses made from toilet paper that takes place year after year. Tell me you are not impressed.

Seriously, am I crazy or is this awesome?

These are gorgeous. Vera Wang take note. Now we all know how brittle toilet paper is and yet these artisans are creating braids, flowers, and full out gorgeous gowns.

If this teaches us anything it is that with a little ingenuity and effort, you could create something absolutely gorgeous on a budget. I’m not sure how well a TP dress would hold up through walking around, pictures, sweating, and dancing but if you could pull it off, without anyone knowing, wouldn’t it be fabulous?

Happy Friday Friends! Let this inspire you to create something amazing this weekend while having a whole new appreciation for toilet paper!

    • But on the flip side of that, Naomi, brides are going to need a whole new tutorial on how to use the restroom in these! Don’t want the dress getting wet… or sticking to the bottom of her shoe…
