LOS ANGELES (AP) — Budget brides can now look like a million dollars in couture-inspired wedding gown thanks to a first-ever union between celebrity designer Kirstie Kelly and Costco.

The Kirstie Kelly Signature collection begins the first of several four-day trunk shows this week at select Los Angeles and San Bernardino Costco locations with wedding dresses starting at 40% off retail. With a limited number of dresses available, brides-to-be are encouraged to schedule their appointments now to find their designer dress at an exceptional price.

Introducing six new styles with classic silhouettes and gorgeous fabrics, the Kirstie Kelly Signature collection is trend-right, perfect for any wedding setting. Finished with soft embellishments including Alencon lace, crystal and pearl beading as well as handmade flowers and petals, the beautifully designed gowns — available in organza, satin, diuponi or taffeta — perfectly complement a range of skin tones. The gowns feature quality construction detailing which allows each dress to drape perfectly on any body type. Cathedral and fingertip length veils are also available to complete the perfect look.

Complete with a private salon that includes a fitting room, lounge and expert bridal consultant, the collection features a breadth of sizes from 2 to 24 so that women can see immediately what they will look like on their big day.

Kirstie Kelly Signature trunk shows will take place at the following Costco locations:

Torrance, Calif. — March 3-6 (2751 Skypark Drive, Torrance 90505)

San Bernardino, Calif. — March 10-13 (1099 E. Hospitality Lane, San Bernadino 92408)

Van Nuys, Calif. — March 24-27 (6100 Sepulveda Blvd., Van Nuys 91411)

“Kirstie Kelly Signature is designed to ensure each bride looks and feels radiant in a dress that complements her natural beauty,” said Kirstie Kelly, designer of the Kirstie Kelly Signature collection. “The Signature line looks gorgeous on any bride and gives her the look and feel of splurging on the dress of her dreams, without the overwhelming cost or guilt.”

    My daughter looked fabulous in her Kirstie Kelly wedding gown a year and a half ago. She felt gorgeous.The support inside, though unseen, is a major reason that each gown feels special, comfortable and is so flattering to all body types. I am so pleased that now more lucky girls will have the opportunity to really shine in a couture dress at an affordable price. Thanks to Costco and to Kirstie Kelly. I hope Costco in Canada is also planning on offering them to brides here too.
