With the arrival of June right around the corner, we’re on the verge of the start of another wedding season.

No matter where a couple ties the knot, one of the most stressful parts of planning a wedding is the budget. And while the reception almost always tops the expense list, the bride’s wedding dress is also a major expense.

But compared to the rest of the country, brides in South Dakota get off easy when it comes to sticker shock on that special white dress.

Insider.com and WeddingWire.com crunched the numbers nationwide and found that brides in the Mount Rushmore State pay less than anywhere else in America. In fact, South Dakota was the only state where the average wedding dress cost less than $1,000 ($929).
