Now That's a Bargain!

The average wedding in the United States in 2008 cost $20,938. As I have learned first hand, a lot of brides are looking for ways to save. The 99-Cent Only Store may be offering the ultimate bargain. From this article:

"The 99-Cent Only Store is offering nine random couples a chance to marry on the extremely cheap on Sept. 9, 2009 – 9/9/09...The wedding, of course, will be held with items from the 99-Cent Only Store, including 99.99-cent place settings and a 99.99-cent wedding dress made of white T-shirts, table runners and loofahs."

Although I have already bought my dress (and paid quite a bit more than 99 cents for it), I am really curious to see what the dress made of "white T-shirts, table runners and loofahs" looks like. Right now you're probably imagining the awful wedding dresses made out of toilet paper at many wedding showers, but that's because you haven't seen these:

Duct Tape Dress (source)

Of course, even if the dress from the 99 cent store isn't as beautiful as these, I'd still be interested in finding out whether it can rival the Waffle House Wedding.

Toilet paper dress for the wedding; duct tape dress for the reception!
The Waffle House wedding photos were great! Really caught the spirit of the wedding. Each one was more OMG than the last.
Get any decorating tips? Maybe maple syrup centerpieces?
