A west suburban woman who is getting married this fall plans to use part of a $400,000 lottery jackpot to pay for her wedding.

Sharon Edwards of Forest Park won $400,000 when the numbers of her Lucky Day Lotto ticket — 03-05-12-16-29 — were a match in the Jan. 20 evening drawing, according to the Illinois Lottery.

Edwards used family birthdates to choose her lottery numbers, a statement from the Lottery said.

"I couldn't believe it when the winning numbers matched the numbers on my ticket. I checked them again and again and I had my fiancée check them too!" Edwards said in the statement.

She bought her winning ticket at the BP station at 7204 W. Washington St. in Forest Park. The store will receive a $4,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
