Big box discount wholesale-retailer Costco is getting into the wedding business. This year, the megastore made its first foray in the multi-billion-dollar industry by introducing six wedding dresses from designer Kirstie Kelly to its shoppers. Priced from $700 to $1,400, the gowns are scheduled to hit stores this season—just in time for the June wedding rush. King5 reports that the dresses will be displayed in a shop-in-shop display. No word yet on whether Costco will be offering customers use of dressing rooms.
