Couples to wed at 99¢ Only Store

WeddingAt the 99¢ Only Store in Lewisville, less than a dollar will get you a beach ball or toothpaste.

If you're Annie Bosworth and John Vanek, it'll also buy you a wedding.

Sound too good to be true? The Oklahoma City couple thought so too at first. But on Saturday, they're getting hitched right next to the displays for Hawaiian Punch Plus, Cheetos and Jane Fonda's Workout videos.

"We both love dollar stores, so we just thought it was awesome," said Ms. Bosworth, who learned about the discount nuptials online.

The low-frills wedding was conceived by bargain shopping guru Sue Goldstein, who has published more than 70 books on finding great deals and has appeared on TV shows including Oprah and The Today Show .

"The whole idea is to draw attention to the ludicrousness of the extravagance of weddings," said Ms. Goldstein, who lives in Flower Mound.

The only requirement: Couples must bring a marriage license and "be dressed to thrill," according to Geneva Wood, promotion coordinator for the event.
