Christchurch bride wins toilet paper wedding dress contestApril 20th, 2008 - 11:34 am ICT by admin
Wellington, Apr 20 (ANI): A woman from Christchurch has won the award for the most stunning wedding dress - made from toilet paper which was strutted on the red carpet on Christchurch’s Victoria Street.
Vicky Heir won a promotional competition with her Cottonsofts gown, beating seven other designers.
Expo manager Peta-Marie McLeod said the designers were allowed to use two four-packs of the double length Cottonsofts toilet tissue - about 16 normal rolls - to make their dresses.
“Most dresses took about eight to 10 rolls. They were absolutely stunning. It was just amazing — the amount of effort some put in. They looked like the real thing, Stuff.co.nz quoted McLeod, as saying.
The competition was something fun and light-hearted to promote the Wedding Expo, which was held at the Christchurch Convention Centre on April 20. (ANI)
