In today's economy everyone is looking to save a few bucks, and when it comes to your wedding why not! I was doing some recent shopping at Costco and in the checkout line came across the recent Costco Connection titled, Weddings by Costco. Wait....What?! Yup! Duh...what a great idea!!
Think about it, according to the Association for Wedding Professionals, a couple in the US will spend roughly $19,581.00 (between $14,686 and $24,476) not including the cost of the honeymoon or engagement ring. WOW! That's a lot of dough!
So why not save where you can...right?! Well here is a list of what's available for your big day from Costco:
- Wedding Dress (article on the dresses from the Costco Connection)I can personally vouch for their flowers. For my sister in laws wedding last May, we pre ordered pink and white roses. We picked them up the night before and they were BEAUTIFUL!!! Flawless flowers, and it was so easy and half the cost of a florist. Here is what they looked like. We did arrange them ourselves in our own glassware:
- Diet and Weight loss
- Flowers (Centerpieces, Bouquets, Boutonnieres, Corsages, DIY Centerpiece kits, Etc.)
- Invitations (Save the Date, Invites and Thank you cards)
