It's Engagement Season in America.

With Valentine's Day right around the corner and engagements in full bloom, it won't be long until we see weddings all over the Ark-La-Tex. We love love around here. There is a reason there are so many different venues in Shreveport, there is a venue for every couple out there. It isn't just couples from Shreveport getting married in Shreveport, couples from all over are flocking to Shreveport to tie the knot.

The personal finance website WalletHub normally hates Shreveport, it is rare when they have something positive to say, however, they just released the "2024's Best Places to Get Married." report, and Shreveport is winning big.

Two Cities in Louisiana Made the Top 20 List of Best Places to Get Married.

New Orleans and Shreveport proudly made the list. How did these two cities make the list? compared 182 of the biggest U.S. cities. They factored in 26 big indicators like cost-effectiveness, and convenience. Nothing was missed, from the average wedding cost (which is $30,000 in America) to how many quality wedding vendors  venues and event spaces per capita to hotel availability.
