Petticoat Junction With This Gown I Thee Wed (1963–1970) Online
On a trip into Riverdale, Betty Jo finds what she thinks is the perfect wedding dress, which she takes back to Shady Rest to show Kate for approval.

Neither Uncle Joe or Cousin Mae are aware that Betty Jo has bought her own dress. As much as she loves both Uncle Joe and Cousin Mae, neither of the dresses they got for her are her style, but she doesn't have the heart to tell them that she plans on wearing her own purchased dress for fear of hurting their feelings. Billie Jo thinks she has the solution to all Betty Jo's wedding gown problems, Billie Jo's idea which divulges a secret that Kate herself was keeping from Betty Jo in an effort to make her daughter ...
