Cincinnati Listed as Top 10 City to Have An Affordable Wedding

Affordable Weddings

Ben Geier, an experienced financial writer, created an interesting article regarding the cost of weddings at

He considered nine specific factors: average cost of a wedding, number of religious organizations, amount of parkland, number of catering companies, number of grooming and clothing professionals (hairdressers, tailors, dressmakers and custom sewers), number of wedding service providers (floral designers, photographers and musicians), number of dining and entertainment establishments, property crime rate and violent crime rate.

As he reports, we appear to be the #4 best city to have an afforable wedding:

#4. Cincinnati, OH

The first Ohio city in our top 10 is Cincinnati. The Queen City doesn’t place in the top 10 for any individual metric but does fairly well in all of them. The average cost of a wedding is $23,493. There are 60.95 acres of parkland per 1,000 residents and more than 156 wedding professionals such as hairdressers, tailors and dressmakers per 100,000 residents.
