Couple Marries Inside Walmart

Frugal matrimony? Shelf-stocker falls for assistant manager? They met as their hands simultaneously clasped over the last of the same everyday-low-priced item? Possibilities, endless. I wonder if their marriage license got checked at the door.

Save Money, Live Better. Marry at Wal-Mart [Wedinator]

    The new “American Gothic.” 8-O

  2. Sparty999 says:

    yep… they look exactly like a couple I would expect to get married at Walmart…

  3. apd09 says:

    I don’t judge, if that is what they wanted because they met there then I and everyone else should be happy for them and I hope it lasts.

    I will perform a marriage at a Wal-Mart, Target, Waffle House, KFC, etc… for the low price of a dinner and travel if you are located in Benny territory.

  5. chaesar says:

    that doesn’t look like a Walmart, none of the signage in the background looks like theirs

  6. Nighthawke says:

    Stop the world, I want to get off….

    Um, the Wedinator post is just the photo and a blurb – for all we know, this is entirely faked. That doesn’t even look like a Wal-Mart.

    i think i much prefer the wedding i attended this past weekend – knee deep in a creek in the georgia mountains.

  9. Big Mama Pain says:

    Was Willy the Pimp the best man?

  10. NarcolepticGirl says:

    awwww !

  11. JohnnyP says:

    They probably had to get back to work there to help make ends meet. Cant take off too long when you dont make squat.

  12. GuyGuidoEyesSteveDaveâ„¢ says:

    The real ironic part? They were registered at Target.

    I’m trying to think of a joke about a return policy, but nothing solid is coming to mind. Anyone…?

    • Short_Circuit_City says:

      No, but the greeter asked to check their marriage license on their way out.

    • shaner55418 says:

      Having read many a Consumerist post before, the groom inspected his merchandise before he left the store. Upon finding that she had been previously opened, apparently many times before, he was glad Walmart had such a liberal return policy and took her back, no questions asked.

      /sexist AND wordy!

    • Me - now with more humidity says:

      I was trying to go for an “opened package” joke, but I got nothin’

  14. shaner55418 says:

    Unfortunately, the wedding was delayed a bit because an oblivious old lady in a scooter had her cart parked sideways in the aisle.

  15. RxDude says:

    Duh – then they can have their reception at the McDonalds inside.

  16. elangomatt says:

    I bet now that they are married, one of them has to quit or move to a different walmart. I’d be surprised if walmart allows a manager to work in the same store as their hourly employee spouse.

  17. TehLlama says:

    Expedited returns for any and all wedding presents. Brilliant!

  18. elislider says:

    of course theyre fat. anyone?

  19. greentech says:

    Everything they need in one location: flowers, the ring, honeymoon supplies (you know what I mean) and the guests can buy the gifts right there in the store. If anyone buys a duplicate, it can be easily corrected.

    No, thank you.

  20. isileth says:

    What’s the difference with people getting married in Las Vegas at a chapel with an Elvis impersonator or someone dressed like an alien?
    Or, if what I saw on TV is true, in front of a machine that for a few coins declares you married and throws rice?
    If that’s what that they both wanted, I am happy for them and hope the marriage lasts.
    As for the comment “they look exactly like a couple I would expect to get married at Walmart…”, not being good-looking is not something that prevents marriage or falling in love.
    Otherwise, we would not have a problems with overpopulation.

  21. DownEaster says:

    Did they check their receipt and bags on the way out?

  22. SPOON - now with Forkin attitude says:

    I’m amazed they could get a team member to help them, let alone marry them.

  23. jvanbrecht says:

    Yeah….. no!!! I would do justice of the peace or courthouse before I did a store.. any store.. for any reason, even if we did meet there…

    There is nothing memorable in a walmart.. other than the fact you got married in one. No thank you..

    Mine on the other hand.. sunset cruise on an old school schooner (Liberty Clipper) somewhere between Key West and Cuba… now that is a wedding to remember.

  24. Dallas_shopper says:

    Remember that recurring skit on Mad TV called “Lowered Expectations”?

    Yeah. That.

  25. Bruce W says:

    It’s a good thing that they did not work for the sanitation dept or they would have gotten married at the garbage dump!

    Really busting apart those stereotypes…
