Came across this and thought the creativity was, well let's just say, creatively unique. Check out the link:

(Sorry, was not sure how the html button code was working or would work, too many other windows came up that did not seem right).

Link to the dresses

Some of them are beautiful and have an incredible amount of work put into them. Then again some of them are, well, interesting lol.

I would be too freaked out by the possibility of a wardrobe malfunction to wear a dress made with tp. Spilled wine, or rain, eek!

I'd be paranoid too. Gives a whole new meaning to "please don't squeeze the Charmin"!!

When life gives you green velvet curtains, make a green velvet dress.

To: jacqui583 and SouthernStitch - I agree with you both. LOL LOL LOL I was wondering if these women actually wore these wedding gowns.

And jacqui583, thanks for providing the direct link to the website.

I'm probably old-fashioned, but the whole idea of a toilet paper wedding dress seems insulting to the concept of a marriage.

I can see where the concept of disposable dresses might be useful considering the number of marriages that go down the toilet.

Would the groom and his attendants wear tar paper tuxedos? Bridesmaids in Kleenex creations? Mothers of the bride and groom in pastel border print paper towels? Flower girl and ring bearer in Wet Wipes? (Oops, keep 'em away from the bride!)

One definitely couldn't steam press wrinkles out of those creations and heaven help the gal who gets married in high humidity.

I've quit fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

It's just fabric; we can out-think it.

Have you heard of the women who trash their wedding dress in some way, after the ceremony is over? Going into the ocean, or mud, or what ever, just sounds pretty awful to me! But these dresses might be perfect for that. You don't spend too much and they would just disintegrate, no problem!

It makes me wonder if this was a contest or something. None of these look like ceremony pictures necessarily.

2014 resolution: keep track of sewn yardage!! I'm subtracting fabric given away from my yardage in. Yeah!
In: 93 yards
Sewn: 62.5 yards

I'll try anything once :)

Please excuse my typos...sometimes it is harder to go back and edit on mobile than it is worth!
