The 99-Cents brides, chosen at random from among the 2,999 couples who entered, had the option of wearing their own gowns if they wanted to, and also received complimentary services like hair and makeup styling, wedding photography, and floral arrangements.
Overall, I think this competition and giveaway were fabulous for the couples involved, who clearly were not looking for elaborate celebrations. Still, I can’t help but feel that for me, being married at a dollar store, or any store for that matter, would take away all of the magic and sincerity of the wedding day.
And while the bride's dress, created by Discount Store Diva Kathy Jacobs for $99 out of T-shirts, tablecloths and similar items sold at 99 Cents Only Stores, is certainly unique, I must admit I personally wouldn’t choose it for my wedding.
What do you think? Would you ever consider having a wedding like this? How low a budget is too low for you?
