Love for each other and the environment - and creative thriftiness - have prompted an American couple to collect aluminum cans to help pay for their wedding.

Andrea Parrish and Peter Geyer, of Washington, already have more than 18,000 cans in their living room - nearly 5% of their goal of collecting 400,000 of the containers.

The local Spokesman-Review newspaper says that would be about 5 tons of aluminum, worth about 3,800 dollars when recycled.

Andrea and Peter hope to meet their goal by their planned July 31 wedding.

They set up a website to explain their plan at weddingcans.com.
