"Toilet Paper" Bride From Kentucky Ties The Knot In New York Restroom

NEW YORK (AP) - If you're the kind to need a tissue at weddings, this was the place to be Wednesday.

Jennifer Cannon wore a dress made of toilet paper when she was married to Doy Nichols at a public restroom in Times Square.

"You may kiss the bride," the officiant said, "but please don't squeeze the Charmin dress."

The intricately detailed dress - which looked at a glance like a regular wedding gown - was designed by Hanah Kim, winner of the 2007 Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest, sponsored by Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com.

The ceremony took place at the Charmin Restrooms - temporary, free public restrooms set up for the event. As the newlyweds from Lexington, Ky., walked back down the aisle, family and friends threw - what else? - shredded tissue.

    This maybe "Cheap", but it is far from "Chic",and should have been left as a work of art,and not actually used in a Wedding.This dress only showed how artistic the designer is, and shows how tasteless the bride was in choosing her day to SHINE! I can't help put to wonder, did she also pick a Corn-Cob-Bouquet?

    Be proud. At least she represented our state with a great sinse of humor. She has a wedding day that will not be forgotten for a very long time, and to say the least she is not in a jail cell somewhere. Ky or Ny. You go girl

    To 'mommy2b'-it's not about being ashamed of where I'm from.I am from Ky,but that does NOT mean I'm a 'hillbilly'.I am a normal person with dignity,and being that I am from KY and have dignity,means I wish others form KY would act like they had some common sense!I am the same all the time.I dont pretend to be something that I'm not.I am proud of my heritage,but being proud to be from KY doesn't mean you go out of state and make ALL Kentuckians look like they dont have the sense to cross the street,or have enough dignity to NOT wear a dress made of TOILET PAPER and then go get MARRIED IN A PUBLIC RESTROOM!!Yeah,that's 'different',alright!Come on!For us thinking that's not the grandest way to put KY in the light doesn't mean we aren't proud of Ky,it just means we would like to think some people would atleast TRY to make us look like there are a few of us in Ky that are NOT hicks.

    Being proud is one thing, being illiterate is another. Have you read these posting? It is disgraceful. More so than the toilet paper bride.

    Why is everyone concerned about "what everyone thinks about ky"? I am a hillbilly, I am proud of it. I am not gonna pretend to be something I am not. We should be proud of our heritage, not ashamed. Congrats to the bride and groom, I think the idea was really "different". Saved a ton of money I bet! Congrats!
