The States That Spend The Most (And Least) On Weddings

Anyone who’s planned a wedding will tell you that the cost of the big day is rarely cheap. Of course how much you actually shell out for the venue, flowers, dresses, etc will vary depending on which state you live in, and there’s no doubt that number can be much bigger in some states than others.

Well, 24/7 Wall Street looked at data from the research company The Wedding Report to determine which state’s brides and grooms are shelling out the most money. Not surprising, the venue, catering and rental costs take up most of a couple’s budget, around 45%, followed by jewelry and photography costs.

So, where are folks spending the most money to get hitched? Believe it or not, couples in New Jersey dip into their wallets the most, spending, on average, $39,602 for their nuptials, with Connecticut a close second at $38,583.
