    TEL AVIV, ISRAEL - SEPTEMBER 08: Models pose in bridal gowns made mainly of toilet paper during a photo-opportunity on September 8, 2009 in Tel Aviv, Israel. The dresses were commisioned by "Lily" toilet paper, the leading brand of the Israeli company Hogla-Kimberly Ltd., which is partly owned by the multinational firm Kimberly-Clark, to herald the upcoming date of September 9, 2009. Twice as many couples than normal are expected to get married tomorrow, on 09/09/09, which is considered by many to be a lucky day to tie the knot. (Photo by David Silverman/Getty Images)

    Ever play that game at a bridal shower, in which you have 3-minutes to design a wedding gown out of toilet paper? Some people come up with creative designs, complete with toilet paper veils and bouquets -- but they don't come close to this!

    In celebration of today’s unique date -- 9/9/09, some of Israel’s leading designers created special wedding gowns made out of toilet paper. Full disclosure -- a toilet paper company asked them to do it.
    The designers said they wanted to create something unique to mark the date, and they decided on wedding gowns since there's a huge increase in the number of weddings taking place today.

    One designer said the toilet paper was easy to work with – but what happens if you spill champagne during the best man’s toast? Or if the groom steps on the dress during the first dance?
