Toilet Paper

Toilet Paper Bridal Gown Part of Fashion, Pop Art Tradition
The website cheap-chic-weddings does an annual toilet paper wedding dress contest. This was the dress of winner Ann Kagawa Lee, which can now actually be found in Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum! Yes, this dress is made ENTIRELY out of toilet paper which is pretty unbelievable

Peacock Feathers

The Colors of a Peacock This dress made out of 2009 peacock feathers, costs $1.5million and took 8 people fourty days to sew together


Peach 69This bubble-tastic dress is made up completely out of balloons (the kind that you used to get balloon dogs or hats made out of by a guy in a clown costume when you were a kid)

Divorce Papers


This dress was actually designed by a 15 year old girl, Demi Barnes, as part of her art GCSE. She used 1500 REAL divorce papers in order to create this ‘ironic’ piece. It is meant to portray the idea that a large proportion of marriages end in divorce because people often rush into it too quickly


Favorite Places & Spaces
Wear your cake and eat it too with this dress designed by Lukka Sigurdarottir, an Icelandic artist. Two of the most important aspects of any wedding- the cake, the dress. This kills two birds with one stone!


weddings: fake wedding!!1!
Sticking with the traditionally white colour of a wedding but in all other ways unconventional, this dress was designed by Japanese artist Rie Hosokai and is made entirely out of Lego

Bread Bag Clips

Bride marries in $36 wedding dress made of upcycled bread bag clips

And this is one of the most impressive stories. A woman named Stephanie Watson from Australia collected bread bag clips from when she first got together with her now-husband. They joked that if they ever collected enough of them, they would get married. When they actually did she then made a dress out of them with an end value of $36 (and 300 hours!!)
