The Hudson Valley Among The Most Expensive Places To Get Married
Here's some bad news for Hudson Valley couples looking to take that next step. If you're trying to get married, be prepared to spend a lot of money. Like, way more money than the rest of the country.
It turns out the Hudson Valley is actually the eighth-most expensive place to get married in the country. Weddings around here typically cost around $42,444. For reference, the national average for wedding cost is about $29,858. That's a difference of more than $10,000, for those keeping score at home.
Of course, the number one spot should be no surprise. It's Manhattan, and it's cost dwarfs ours, to the tune of $86,916. That's almost triple the national average. That's potentially a college education right there. You could spend just about the same amount of money to buy a brand new Audi car. It's the kind of money that you keep in a vault filled with gold coins that you can dive into, Scrooge McDuck-style.
So my advice: save some money. Get married at a courthouse, then spend the money you would have spent on a wedding to buy a college education, an Audi, or a Scrooge McDuck vault. Any of those things are a great value.
