Most expensive places to get married!

Well, as if we didn’t know this already but Connecticut and 4 other states in the tri-state area come up in a top 25 list of “Most expensive places to get married” according to the Knot in March 2015.

Getting married doesn’t necessarily have to be break the bank however. The best way to get the most bang for your buck and be satisfied with your wedding is to focus on the elements that are most important to you and put your resources there. If it’s the ceremony that really matters, get the venue you’re dreaming of, add that violin procession and make it special. However, if it’s making sure everyone has a great time dancing at the reception, then put a little extra into the DJ or band and less perhaps on extra trimmings for the ceremony. Want to create an amazing ambience or theme for the whole thing? Make sure your decor is top notch and let the food and drinks take care of themselves! Every wedding is different and should subtly reflect the elements you care about the most.

The list for the Knot is below. For more wedding statistics info; visit- The Knot Study
