They say communication and mutual respect are keys for a successful marriage, but for two couples in Iowa, a side of bacon couldn't hurt either.

Two couples decided to get married over the weekend at the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival in Des Moines. Tricia Snider and Tom Watson tied the knot on Saturday and say they chose the venue because they both enjoy bacon. Craig and April Rouch followed them. Both couples exchanged vows and agreed to stay together "in good times and bacon."

Was there a BACON WEDDING DRESS involved???
