It seems you can buy just about anything at discount retailer Costco. Now, brides visiting the Costco store in Howard County next week will be able to buy a wedding dress designed by Kirstie Kelly.
The four-day trunk show will be held from Aug. 18 through the 21st at the store at 6675 Marie Curie Drive in Elkridge. The retailer says gowns will start at 40 percent off retail price.
Not keen on buying a dress next to gallons of mayonnaise or 300 pairs of tube socks for $10? No worry. Promoters say brides-to-be will have a “salon experience” with fitting rooms and a “lounge for family and friends to gush over the bride.”
Dresses are expected to be delivered to shoppers 10 days after purchase.
The Costco wedding sale is exceptionally timely for budget-conscious brides. The event happens during Maryland’s sale tax holiday.
Would you buy a wedding dress at Costco? And if so, would you admit to it?
