Halloween Couples Costumes That Don’t Totally Suck


Let's be honest; we've all seen a couples costume that made us want to barf. Too cutesy, too cheesy, what have you. It's time to step up your Halloween costume game and here's are a few of my favorite couples costume ideas to get your wheels turning.

Bonus, these are all costumes you can pull together last minute (and for a low cost!). You can cut costs on many of these items by shopping at Walmart, thrift stores, and Amazon (instead of higher priced Halloween shops) for additional savings.
