Here Comes the Bride, All Dressed in . . . Costco
...the idea of "personal touch" can easily be drowned out by a weak economy, says Dr. Gilda Carle, author of "Don't Bet on the Prince!," and professor of a New York-based Mercy College course, "Love as Big Business."
"The economy is still affecting people," says Carle. "People are not spending as much on a wedding as they might have some years ago, but brides are not going to lose the whole aura of their special day. Most people will spend as little as they can on weddings as long as they don't lose that fairy tale they've always wanted"
In years past, couples would put any savings toward their wedding. Today, Carle says they are more likely to invest in a new home. The down economy has placed the spotlight on value, and people who have been "around the block" have a better grasp on saving money. Carle says Costco may see most of their business coming from older couples who have been down the aisle before. "I think the younger generation whose parents are paying for the wedding will still go all out for a soup-to-nuts affair. But older people know how difficult it is to keep their heads above water and they'll have no problem buying everything they need at Costco and doing it themselves."
