You wanted a wedding dress you could wipe your butt with, right? That’s what we imagine Susan Brennan from Orchard Lake, Michigan, must have been thinking, because she’s the winner of the Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Challenge, an annual contest aimed at creating the best wedding confection out of, you guessed it, rolls and rolls of two-ply tissue. For her creativity, Brennan took home $1,000, which we hope she puts towards purchasing an actual, non-toilet paper wedding dress. Yeah, but what’s more intriguing is the line from the press release about third place winner Cynthia Richards, whose toilet paper dress was “inspired by her business partner’s dream.” What is her business partners dream? Toilet paper clothing? Really? Eek. Keep reading »
“We’ve both been married before. We’re enjoying our commitment to each other. We want to take our time … We might elope if it gets to that point … I will be part of designing my own wedding gown.”
—Jessica Simpson talks to Women’s Wear Daily about her wedding plans with former football player Eric Johnson. I’m secretly hoping these two get hitched in a Vegas wedding chapel and that Jessica wears one of her prom dresses for the occasion. [People] Keep reading »
Designers are already clamoring to get the attention of Prince William’s fiancee, Kate Middleton, and why shouldn’t they? Get your dress into a royal wedding and you become an iconic designer, business booms, and you’re set for life (or at least a while). Monique Lhuillier, one of the biggest names in luxury wedding gowns, has contributed a princess-worthy gown idea that’s sure to catch Kate’s eye.

The best part about being a bride is getting to strut around in the prettiest, priciest, most ridonkulously drop-dead gorgeous white dress in the universe! Oh yeah, and that whole life partner thing is cool, too. But seriously, the wedding dress is probs the one thing making me want to get married. After watching “Say Yes To The Dress” with my brother (yeah, he’s sensitive like that) and my sister-in-law, it’s clear that finding a man to commit is probably easier than finding that perfect dress to spend your special day in.
That’s why my heart broke when I heard that Eva’s Bridal Shop in Chicago burned to the ground, leaving so many brides dress-less for their weddings. (Bridesmaid dresses were lost too, but that might actually be a blessing from what I’ve seen.) Keep reading »

The ever-gorgeous Lara Stone married comedian David Walliams in London over the weekend. While full-length photos of her custom-made, £30,000 Givenchy gown haven’t yet circulated, shots of her and new hubby David heading to the reception are all over the place, and Lara’s looking fly in a short gold Givenchy dress. Apparently the bride changed from the white wedding dress she wore during the ceremony into a party dress before making merry with guests like Tom Ford and fellow model Lily Donaldson. We love the idea of switching dresses; not only does it preserve your wedding dress from the rigorous obstacle course of wine, food, and hugs that is a wedding reception, but it also leaves you free to dance without tripping all over your train. Would you do this at your wedding? Keep reading »
