Here Are The 10 Most Expensive Locations To Get Married in 2019 in the U.S.

If you, for any reason, desire to spend a lot of money for your wedding, allow me to help you by giving you a list of The Knot’s top 10 most expensive places to get married in 2019.

Either avoid these wedding destinations or, if you or your family and friends live there, start saving up now. 

Manhattan is the most expensive place to get married here in the United States, with an average of $96,910 spent per event, according to a recent study. That’s more than double the amount of money spent on the average wedding in the U.S., which was $33,931.

1. NY – Manhattan $96,910
2. NY – Long Island $66,409
3. IL – Chicago $60,294
4. Rhode Island $59,201
5. MA – Cape Cod $58,425
6. NJ – North/Central $58,107
7. NY – Westchester/Hudson Valley $57,678
8. NY – NYC Outer Boroughs $56,967
9. NJ – South $47,148
10. Philadelphia/Delaware $46,640

If you are satisfied with only the best, you will laugh at these numbers. You probably will end up spending $100k just for flowers.

I really love what Ivy Carter said. “it’s so apparent that weddings are a business before anything else. They are a business built on a foundation of trying to outdo every single one of your friends while pretending that you aren’t.”

    Wow, that’s a small fortune! I would rather have a cheap wedding and spend my money on the honeymoon. Haha.

    This is presuming it’s a simple wedding and a small number of guests? I’d be curious to find out what the details were. If it’s for a venue and a cocktail reception, then yes, holy moly, that’s expensive!

      nope it’s real statistics, and average wedding numbers

    Wow so NYC and NJ are that bad. That is so interesting and making me lean more towards a destination wedding!

    I don’t believe in expensive weddings. You can have a beautiful wedding with a desired amount of budget. 🙂

    1. WMFteam108

      yes, depends on location. These are not expensive. Just average.

    This is so interesting to know for an outsider. I can imagine the number of factors that come in to play for that kind of pricing. I would definitely love to attend one of these weddings though 😛
