See the 2017 top 10 toilet paper wedding dress designers' amazing creations
Manzanares's long-sleeved design is embellished with flowers and coils, creating a dramatic train and an intricate bodice. "I wanted to create and challenge myself in making the illusion of a lace fabric and making it more flexible to be more comfortable for a person to wear," Manzanares said. "The soft Quilted Northern toilet paper was a wonderful material to make my dress."
Carol Touchstone is a 65-year-old semi-retired designer and stylist based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and has been in the top 10 three out of the five times she's entered this contest. She's no stranger to coming close to victory but has yet to walk away with the grand prize; she came in third in both 2013 and 2015.
