According to The Knot’s 2015 Real Weddings Study, the average wedding cost, excluding honeymoon costs, in the U.S. in 2015 was $32,641, an increase of more than $1,400 from the year prior.

The study found that couples looking to tie the knot in New York City’s Manhattan borough can expect to pay well above the national average. Manhattan weddings cost couples an average of $82,299 in 2015. That’s over $20,000 more than in Chicago, the next most expensive city to tie the knot in 2015. Couples who want a more affordable place to get married than the Big Apple may want to look into saying “I do” in central Illinois, where the average wedding cost was $21,818, more than $10,000 below the national average.
