Nine Nine O Nine...

Nine lucky couples said "I do" today at a local 99 Cents Only store, giving them the quirky wedding date of September 9, 2009 or 09/09/09.

The couples were among 2,999 applicants hoping to score a 99-cent wedding as part of a promotion for the store.With nine family members and friends on-hand, the nine couples exchanged vows near check out #9 in the store, located at 5270 Sunset Boulevard.They were then sent off in a limousine with $99.99 in cash to celebrate at an undisclosed "famous romantic Los Angeles" spot.The brides won wedding gowns made out of T-shirts, table cloths and other items sold at 99 Cent stores. They also had the option of wearing their own gown.

In Las Vegas, wedding officials are preparing for the busiest day of the year.Nine couples are scheduled to marry at the Madame Tussauds wax museum on the Las Vegas Strip at 9:09 a.m., while 99 more are waiting until 9:09 p.m. for a shared ceremony in the observation deck at the Stratosphere Tower. Each paid $99 for their wedding package.

Still, officials don't think 09-09-09 will be as lucrative as July 7 two years ago or Aug. 8 last year. {photo & story via ktla.com & momlogic}
