A quirky wedding dress is sometimes all you need to make a wedding even more romantic, but sometimes these unusual creations can be used to avoid romance all together, like this dissolvable wedding dress from Sheffield Hallam University.

This ingenious design is both comical and eco-friendly. On the one hand, a dissolvable wedding dress is better for the environment than a traditional gown which is only worn once. Instead of allowing the dress to collect dust in the back of the future wife's closet, this gown can be broken down into particles which can then be flushed away with little to no harm on the environment. On the other hand, a dissolvable wedding dress can also be used to help runaway brides with a quick escape. Simply pack a change of clothes, add some water to your dress, and no one would ever guess that you had once been a bride.

Although both of these reasons have caught the attention of many Internet users, this dress was actually created as a fashion statement. These wedding gowns are made up of different polymer layers. Each layer dissolves to reveal another one underneath, allowing brides to enjoy their wedding ceremonies and receptions without having to leave the party for a costume change. In this way, these dissolvable wedding dresses are a fantastic way to buy several outfits at once, without anyone being the wiser.
