Sneak Peek: My Garbage Bag Wedding Dress

Affton Patch editor Lindsay Toler is volunteering to model trash bag couture for the Salvation Army's Garbage Bag Gala.

I'll be honest: I never thought I'd wear a wedding dress made out of garbage bags and duct tape!

Luckily, it's not for my actual wedding. The boyfriend is still the boyfriend, not the fiance. My wedding dress is for the . 

Three members of the American Sewing Guild are making me a wedding dress and a sun dress—both made from garbage bags and duct tape!

So far, my talented and hilarious designers have made the bulk of my wedding dress. My train (which I think is taller than I am!) is made out of a white plastic table cloth. My veil? Clear garbage bags.

I think my dress will be much more embellished by the show on July 27 at the Moonrise Hotel, but you'll have to buy a ticket to see!

Check out a video blog I posted a few weeks ago about being a "trashy" fashion model.
