The Queen Mother of the Beyhive, Miss Tina Lawson, drew a tear to my eye when she did me proud back in 2015 by announcing her favorite spot to do Sunday brunch was not some high-fallutin’ $45 per mimosa spot. It was Costco!
Fast forward to today, and an Australian couple has done me even prouder by tying the knot somewhere between the tire department and food court at their local Costco.
Bulk-sized love is a lifetime of love! Australia’s 9 News (via Mashable) reports Sue Berkeley and Eli Bob got married Saturday in front of 90 of their friends because it’s a beloved big box of a place where they spend a lot of time. Sue elaborates:
“I get to spend another day at Costco, that I love. Where else can I get married to the one I love, in a place that I love, surrounded by the people I love.”
While some snarky bridezilla probably coughed out “somewhere that isn’t hawking a box of 500 personal bags of Cheez-It crackers for $9,” the last laugh is on those naysayers! Weddings can zap a savings account considering how much it costs to keep grandma happy with a mashed potato bar and the good chardonnay. Sue and Eli’s wedding cost just under $8 a person! So what if 200 weekend shoppers and that mammoth teddy bear also got to look on?! Just as I was getting stoked since nothing gets my chonies going like a Costco hot dog, you can apparently only have a Costco wedding if you’re a “special guest.” I guess we can just hope Miss Tina gets a say in choice of venue when it comes time for Blue Ivy to walk down the aisle.
