Costco stores to add full service wedding boutiques

(NBC) - The discount warehouse giant Costco is about to try its hand in the wedding boutique department, even featuring cash and carry wedding dresses.

Loyal Costco customers know they can find just about anything in the stores, but some customers seemed to be caught off guard by the new display of wedding gowns.

Prices for the wedding dresses will range from $699 to $1,399 and will be available in sizes 2 through 24.

Special dressing rooms are constructed as part of the pilot program, and the store will host a traveling trunk show featuring six dresses.

If Costco knows its dresses as well as they think they do, a bride's search to look for that perfect dress to walk down the aisle in just might start within the aisles of their neighborhood store.
