With the notoriously high cost of weddings, it's no surprise that many brides rely on calling in favours and cutting costs where they can.

And the people at American website Cheep Chic Weddings, took this up a good few notches by asking readers to create wedding gowns out of toilet roll.

The contestants were allowed to sew, tape, or glue their creations made out of Charmin Ultra Soft toilet paper, and were judged on creativity, originality and neatness.

The results were, surprisingly, beautiful. (Yes, we just called toilet paper beautiful.)

Cheap Chic Weddings has been running the contest for 10 years, but this year's event is considered the biggest with the first prize winning $10,000 (£5,897).

Take a look at the winning wedding dresses below...

The winner - Susan Brennan

Brennan won the grand prize of $10,000 (£5,897) for her embellished gown which can transform into a cocktail dress for an evening reception. The American spent one month and 17 ultra-soft two-ply rolls of Charmin making the ensemble.


2nd Place Winner - Katrina Chalifoux

Chalifoux's teired dress took away the $5,000 (£2,946) prize.

3rd Place Winner - Amber Mills

Mills was awarded $2,500 (£1,473) for her duck-egg blue gown is entirely made out of toilet paper. It took her three months to create after she found the special blue toilet paper on eBay.
