Discovery-owned American pay-TV channel TLC will chronicle the annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest in its special, The Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Challenge.

Produced by Critical Content in association with Simon Lythgoe’s Legacy Productions and Roberts Media, the special watches as dress makers compete to create a wedding gown and headpiece using only tape, glue, thread and toilet paper.

Created in 2003 by CharmWeddings.com owners Susan Bain and Laura Gawne, the contest draws thousands of aspiring designers.

The series is hosted by Trading Spaces star Paige Davis, along with three celebrity judges from the world of bridal design and fashion: Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta‘s Monte Durham, fashion entrepreneur Jeremiah Brent and Zanna Roberts Rassi, fashion editor at large of Marie Claire magazine.

Critiquing the dresses based on creativity, beauty, workmanship and the overall use of Quilted Northern toilet paper, the judges select one designer from each category — cultural, modern and traditional — to move on to the final round. After the top three finalists are nominated, one toilet paper wedding dress champion is crowned.

The Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Challenge premieres Sept. 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
