Planning a wedding can be a very stressful event. So many decisions go into designing the ideal day, from picking out the perfect dress and venue to hiring the best caterer and florist, that it can be quite overwhelming. While some wedding planners and do-it-yourself couples agonize over the choices due to limited resources, others in certain cities may have an easier time crafting the perfect way to say "I do."

WalletHub compared over 180 cities around the country to determine which are the best places to get married, based on factors like number of venues and wedding chapels, average costs and number of vendors like florists, caterers and cake shops. Among the list are six cities in North Carolina, including one that made the Top 20:

  • No.15: Charlotte
  • No. 32: Greensboro
  • No. 56: Fayetteville
  • No. 69: Raleigh
  • No. 81: Winston-Salem
  • No. 85: Durham

Not only is Charlotte the best city in the Tar Heel State to get married, but it's one of the absolute best in the entire country, largely thanks to its high marks in the facilities & services category.

These are the Top 10 best places to get married, according to WalletHub:

  1. Orlando, Florida
  2. Las Vegas, Nevada
  3. Miami, Florida
  4. Tulsa, Oklahoma
  5. Atlanta, Georgia
  6. Tampa, Florida
  7. New Orleans, Louisiana
  8. Knoxville, Tennessee
  9. Chicago, Illinois
  10. El Paso, Texas

To determine the list, WalletHub compared 182 U.S. cities across three factors: costs, facilities & services, and activities & attractions. These factors were then evaluated using 26 relevant metrics, including average wedding costs, wedding chapels & churches per capita, values & event spaces per capita, event planners per capita, bridal shops per capita, hotels per capita, number of attractions, popularity as a travel destination, weather and more.
