Dolly Parton is planning on renewing her vows to her husband, Carl Dean, on the couple's 50th wedding anniversary in the kind of ceremony the two couldn't afford the first time around.

According to an interview with Parton in People magazine, the ceremony will take place on May 30. Parton and Dean met in a Wishy Washy Laundromat on the day that Parton moved to Nashville in 1964. The two were married in Ringgold, Ga., on May 30, 1966, with only Parton's mother as a witness.

Dean and Parton rarely have been photographed together through the years and there has been much speculation about their relationship. Parton, however, always has maintained that the two have a very good marriage and Dean is simply a very private person with no interest in being in the spotlight. Dean ran his own asphalt paving business in Nashville and rarely attended Parton's public events.

In the upcoming ceremony, Parton said in People that she will have a "beautiful wedding dress" and take "a bunch of pictures."
