“The quality of talent that presents itself each year always amazes us,” says Susan Bain, one of the founders of Cheap Chic Weddings. “This year’s entries included several dresses that had intricate details like faux embroidery, ruffles, pleats and even lace effects.”
Charmin is a sponsor of the contest for the second time and provided coupons for contest entrants to help cover the cost of purchasing the rolls of Charmin used in creating each dress, which ranged in amount from 10 rolls to nearly 50 rolls in some cases and featured Charmin Basic, Charmin Ultra Soft and Charmin Ultra Strong designs.

“Charmin is thrilled to once again be a sponsor of the Cheap Chic Weddings Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest,” says Laura Dressman, P&G External Relations Manager. “We’re inspired by these dresses and couldn’t imagine a better way to showcase the Charmin brand in a fun and unique way. Congratulations to Susan Brennanand all the finalists on their fantastic designs.”
