[DID YOU KNOW?]
According to the 2014 Real Weddings Survey from popular wedding website TheKnot.com, June was the most popular month to get married in 2014, when 15 percent of the nearly 16,000 brides and grooms surveyed tied the knot in what many people consider the most pleasant weather month of the year. Fourteen percent chose to tie the knot in October, another month with a reputation for agreeable weather. Those who chose to tie the knot in the New York/Tri-state area paid the most to make their unions official, as five of the six most expensive areas to get married in the United States in 2014 were within that region. The most expensive locale to say “I do” was Manhattan, where couples spent an average of $76,238 on their weddings. Long Island was next up but still cost considerably less, with couples spending an average of $55,237. Chicago was the only locale outside of the New York/Tri-state area to crack the top five, coming in fifth by costing couples an average of just under $51,000. !
