The state of Connecticut is one of the costliest places in the country to say I do, with an average wedding price coming in at $10,000 more than the national average of $28,427, according to a survey conducted by and The total is enough to land the Nutmeg State in the top 10 markets nationally, but it’s still only half of the cost of weddings in the most expensive market:
