For the past 16 years, Charm Weddings of Boca Raton, Florida, has challenged professional and amateur designers nationwide to create stunning, wearable wedding dresses and headpieces made only of toilet paper, glue, tape ,and needle and thread.
Little did the owners—sisters Susan Bain and Laura Gawne—realize that this year’s coronavirus pandemic would ratchet up the value of those hip and inspired gowns in a world without Charmin, Cottonelle, Scott, Quilted Northern, or White Cloud.
This would be the time of year when the contest would normally begin. However, the 2020 challenge has been temporarily postponed due to COVID-19 and will be rescheduled at an appropriate time, Bain and Gawne say.
“When the Covid-19 outbreak began, we didn’t realize the potential impact and how the availability of toilet paper would come into play!” comments Gawne.
Fans of the contest as well as all of the potential entrants can find updates on the company’s social media platforms and websites in the coming days and weeks. In the meantime, the sisters are holding on to the Top 3 wedding dresses from 2019…they could be more valuable than gold.
