Are you planning a wedding in the new year? First off – congratulations! Secondly – if you’re planning your celebration in the Bay State, fine choice, Massachusetts was just named one of the 10 best states for weddings, according to new research by Rare Carat. The study analyzed Bureau of Labor Statistics data on annual pay and employment across five occupations in the wedding industry and combined that with the overall number of weddings per state to determine the best (and worst) states for weddings.

Here are the results. We’ll give you the ranking of each state and how far off each was from the average state score in the study:
