BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everyone likes to save money here and there. And for some, saving money on weddings is more than a hobby, and a little less than an obsession. Laura Gawne and Susan Bain who operate the popular money-saving website www.Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com began the annual contest ten years ago based on the popular bridal shower game.
The Cheap Chic Weddings 2014 Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest sponsored by Charmin, launches today March 18, 2014 for the tenth year in a row. Contestants have until May 13, 2014 to submit their priceless paper masterpieces, at which point a panel of judges will narrow the list down to the top 10 and then open online voting to the public. The top ten dress designs will be showcased at a live event at The Sanctuary Hotel on The Haven Rooftop in New York City on June 12, 2014. The 10-year anniversary event will feature celebrity judge Kate Pankoke, owner and creative director of Elaya Vaughn Bridal and season 11 and season 12 contestant on Project Runway, who will help crown the top designer.
“We are extremely excited to celebrate our ten year anniversary with our very talented contestants in New York City! This year’s contest will be our best yet,” said Laura Gawne of Cheap Chic Weddings.
The Grand Prize winner will receive $10,000, the second place winner will receive $5000 and the third place winner will receive $2500.

Their mission is to enable couples-to-be to “have a cheap wedding that looks like a million bucks.” The company started the Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest ten years ago to connect to their readers beyond the website and book.
