NEW YORK - Tourists gaped at six stunning wedding dresses displayed at Ripley's Believe It or Not! in New York's Times Square.

The fashionable white frocks were fashioned entirely of toilet paper.

Six dresses were displayed at the Times Square "odditorium" Thursday and three winning designers squared off for the top prize of $1,000.

The judges from Ripley's Believe it or Not!, Charmin and Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com crowned this year's winner, Katrina Chalifoux of Rockford, Ill. She spent two weeks creating a sheath dress with a raised flower pattern from molded toilet paper.

Terri Glover of Marlin, Texas, was a second prize winner. Ann Lee, of Honolulu, Hawaii, placed third in the annual dress competition, which just celebrated its fourth year.
