Planning a wedding can be a daunting task and with the average cost of weddings in the United States soaring to $29,000 in 2023, many couples find themselves searching for creative ways to cut costs without compromising on their dream day. An unconventional wedding tip that often gets overlooked is utilizing a Costco membership.

Yes, you read that right—Costco, the warehouse giant, can be a game-changer in making your wedding more affordable without sacrificing quality. Let's get into the categories with the most major savings below.

Save Big on Stationery

Starting with the essentials—save the dates, invitations, and other paper products. Costco has partnered with Shutterfly, allowing you to save a whopping 51% on these items. Your wedding stationery sets the tone for your big day, and now you can make a lasting impression without breaking the bank.

Sparkle for Less

If diamonds are a girl's best friend, Costco can be your wallet's best friend when it comes to saving on engagement rings and wedding bands. Offering high-quality jewelry at competitive prices, Costco allows you to shine on your special day without the hefty price tag. It's a win-win for your fiancé and your budget.

Floral and Culinary Delights

Two major, classic components of any wedding are the flowers and the cake. Costco, known for its fresh and affordable flowers, can be your go-to for beautiful blooms that won't break the bank. Additionally, their bakery is renowned for quality and taste, offering delicious wedding cakes at a fraction of the cost you might find elsewhere. Your wedding can look and taste amazing at a reasonable price.

Jet-Set on a Budget

After the festivities, it's time for the honeymoon. Costco's travel services offers fantastic deals that can help you save on your post-wedding getaway. Whether you dream of a tropical paradise or a European adventure, Costco's travel experts can help you plan a memorable honeymoon without the sky-high prices.
