About

On WeddingWire since 2011

The Balcony Ballroom is a wedding venue in Metairie, Louisiana. Weddings are about families coming together to celebrate love, life and the beginning of forever. So it comes as no surprise that for almost 50 years, this family-owned business has been the swellest setting for over 10,000 happily ever after’s. Now, their children, who grew up immersed in this rich familial culture of service and dedication are being handed the reins, bringing a fresh new perspective and vision to every event hosted at
The Balcony Ballroom.

So with its timeless aura, exceptional reputation, and endless options for food, décor and more, The Balcony Ballroom has a history of creating straight-up wonder for every event whether it’s a wedding, an anniversary, or just a party to celebrate being together. Which is why on your special day, you’ll always see one of the owners there to make sure the only thing on your mind is your groom. (And maybe the cake.)

From our elegant grand ballroom with sky-high ceilings to sweet music that will have you tappin’ your feet and tripping the light fantastic, there is no better place to have your event than here. And no other venue in New Orleans can give you the whole megillah like the The Balcony Ballroom.

We put the rainbow through the wringer and came up with over 4.2 billion colors for you to choose from. Try to get THAT with any other venue! You can’t. With our “Just For Hue” offerings, you get everything – gourmet food, beverages, music and impeccable service – but you also get a design specialist who will help you:

  • Select table linens from a wide array of colors to match your specific color scheme
  • Coordinate every aspect of your event right down to glittering lights that will turn your day into one no one will forget and many will envy
  • Have our talented design specialists create a unique monogram or type treatment of your names to be prominently displayed at your event

Our chefs are second to none. And because we make everything on-site with only the freshest of ingredients, you can believe that every bite will be mouthwatering. With crepes filled and rolled before your very eyes and hors d’oeuvres ranging from classic tea sandwiches to lump crabmeat with truffle butter in edible spoons, there is literally nothing we can’t make. All you have to do is ask. And if you or any of your party has dietary restrictions or preferences, we can create a menu that will be as memorable as your first dance.

With everything happening in our grand ballroom, every single one of your guests will see your first dance, the garter toss, the bouquet toss and hear the incredible toasts from your family and friends.

And now so is your day. After all, New Orleans can be sweltering or freezing depending on the time of year, which is why we offer what many facilities in New Orleans can’t – a veritable utopia of elegance that doesn’t need Mother Nature’s approval. So there’s no need for a Plan B. At the Balcony Ballroom, you get all the glitz and glamour you could ever ask for completely free from wind, rain, bugs, heat and cold. Not to mention, when you and your guests arrive they’ll do so under our convenient, well-lit covered drive, ensuring no one has to endure wet hair or damp suits. And if you or your guests brought a coat, one of our attendants will happily check it for you. For those of your guests that would like to step out for a moment, our climate-regulated area is perfect for them to still hear every toast and song from our sound system outside. So no matter the season, your ceremony and reception
will unfurl in spacious splendor, just as you’ve imagined, with a temperature and feel impervious to everything but your
wedding’s fun.

For almost 50 years The Balcony Ballroom has built its impeccable reputation on creating lavish events of every kind. How we did it was simple. One of the owners is always on site at every event to ensure your party goes off without a hitch – except for the bride and groom, that is. Not to mention, we employ over 30 of the most professional and courteous staff to help you with every aspect of your event. So from set-up to cleanup, we’ll have everything covered. From your own personal attendant and wedding coordinator to servers behind every station and servers butlering hors d' oeuvres, you won’t have to think about anything but your groom. We’ll even box up the cake, and pack and load your presents, too.
