Introduction:Sure, you might buy bulk items like coffee and meats at your local warehouse Costco store, but there are some really good ways to save money on a wedding by shopping there too. A marriage doesn't have to start off being expensive to be good.

  • 01

    Buy Your Wedding Flowers

    Costco has wonderfully low prices on roses and about any other flower that they can order in specifically for you so take advantage and buy your wedding flowers at your warehouse store. There is a floral manager who you can contact directly. You can not only order in specific arrangements for your wedding flowers, but you will get first choice of the specific flowers when they are sent to the store.

    Don't just consider the table or church flowers for your marriage, but also order the boutonniers, bridal bouquet, and corsages for the parents too.

    How About Buying Your Wedding Cake from the Costco Bakery?

    Instead of paying upwards to a thousand dollars for a wedding cake that certainly isn't worth all that, head straight to the Costco bakery for the cake to celebrate your marriage. You can special order any sheet cake for a casual wedding or, for a more formal affair, how about buying three chocolate layer cakes and putting them on glass pedestals next to each other? Just dress the wedding cakes up by adding some flowers to the glass pedestals or to the top of the three cakes. Put the wedding topper on the middle cake and you've just saved yourself hundreds of dollars.

    Another nice idea is to forego the wedding cake all together and instead serve small eclairs or other baked goods which you can pick up at the warehouse store. Just get one of your friends to lay them out on pedestals or pretty trays beforehand.

  • 03

    Save the Date Magnets

    So many people send out save the date cards these days, especially if the wedding is a destination wedding. Why not make the save the date item useful and put it in plain sight by getting magnets printed with your names and the date of the wedding.

    If you prefer to be more traditional, just get your save the date cards printed at the Costco anyway. You'll still save money by doing that instead of going to another type of store. If you have a nice printer at home, consider buying your own paper stock and go ahead and get creative by printing your own cards.

    Wedding Invitations or Wedding Announcements

    Costco has a surprising selection of very nice wedding invitations and wedding announcement which can be specialty ordered. You can select your wording, paper stock, and the font just like going to a more expensive wedding invitation shop. Save the extra money and pay a calligrapher to hand write the envelopes. Your guests need never know that your invitations were only a hundred dollars instead of must more expensive wedding invitations.

  • 05

    Save Money on Wedding Rings

    Costco also has surprisingly good quality in all of their gems. You will receive a certified appraisal with every wedding ring so you're guaranteed not to be taken. Engagement rings go from as little as $200 upwards to $10,000 and the quality is exceptional.




Final Thoughts

Costco offers so many choice ways to save money in the everyday fashion but, when it comes to a wedding, it's a great place to shop to keep the costs down. Save money on your marriage so you can splurge on a nicer honeymoon which you can also book through Costco travel.
