As National Heart Health Month and the host of Valentine’s Day, February seems to be the designated month of amore. It makes sense, then, that it also happens to be National Wedding Month. According to the Association of Bridal Consultants, while not a lot of people tie the knot during this time of year, more people get engaged and host their bridal showers during February than any other month of the year. If you are starting to get around to planning your big day, now is the time to do so. Be sure to have your AAA membership number or card ready, as you can save big on flowers, lodging and more when you purchase from our top partners.
Save Big on Floral Arrangements
Wedding flowers make up a significant portion of any wedding budget, accounting for up to $2,500 or more of expenses. Floral arrangements are an integral part of any ceremony, as they serve both an aesthetic and symbolic purpose. While we don’t discourage spending in this area, we do encourage you to shop around for deals. As a AAA member, you don’t have to look far, as we partner with one of the leading floral providers in the nation.
1800Flowers has floral arrangements for every occasion, including weddings. Save up to 20% on gorgeous centerpieces, bouquets, gifts and more when you go through AAA to find a participating florist near you.
Make Your Destination Wedding or Honeymoon More Affordable
Destination weddings are all the rage, and while they can certainly take any couple’s big day to the next level, they’re often unfeasible for many invitees. To help make sure you’re surrounded by as many of your loved ones as possible when you say “I do,” remember to use your AAA discounts on vacation packages, experiences and all things travel. You and your guests can also save up to 20% on car rentals when you book through Hertz and attractive rates and exclusive benefits at AAA Preferred Hotel Partners.
For guests who need to fly, reserve parking with The Parking Spot nearest their departing airport to save 10%. Travel in style with superior luggage and accessories from Samsonite, one of our long-time partners that offers as much as 20% off purchases from their online shop, stores and outlets.
Throw an Unforgettable Bachelor Party
Sure, hitting the bars and clubs is fun, but you can do that on any old weekend. Throw an unforgettable bachelor or bachelorette party somewhere your bridal party would least expect, such as Busch Gardens, Discovery Cove or Universal Studios. At these thrilling destinations, you can let your hair down and let your inner child out to play one more time before you move onto the next stage in your life. Get up to 40% off tickets when you order them online through AAA Tickets. If your spouse-to-be is a fun-loving, carefree individual as well, consider planning your honeymoon around a trip to one of the nation’s top theme parks and resorts.
After the Honeymoon
When the honeymoon’s over (so to speak), be prepared to move into the next big stage as newlyweds. If you are moving down the street or across the country, AAA has teamed up with Atlas Van Lines to bring discount prices on moving trucks, materials and full-value protection for AAA members. Planning a do-it-yourself move? Save money and stress when you partner with Penske Truck Rental to get great savings on moving trucks and even more discounts on supplies such as tape and boxes.
