New Orleans Wedding Venues: Your Wedding Venue Planning Guide for New Orleans and Beyond

New Orleans, LA is famous for its music, food and Mardi Gras culture, but The Big Easy is truly special because of its diverse community. New Orleans is rich in history, culture and the arts, and you'll have no trouble finding ways to celebrate the city and your love as a couple in NOLA.

Popular New Orleans Wedding Venues and Pricing

New Orleans wedding venues are steeped in the background of this soulful city. Couples looking for the right place to say "I do" will only run into one hitch-narrowing down the incredible choices! From rooftop spaces with sweeping views of the French Quarter to stunning historic hotels overlooking the nation's oldest cathedral, there are ballrooms and courtyards around the city that celebrate the spirit of NOLA. But the choices don't stop there. In a city with deep history, venues are often stories in-and-of themselves. There are opulent antebellum plantations, mansions in the Garden District or homes that belonged to famed artists. Whatever location feels right for you and your story, there's a New Orleans wedding venue made for your nuptials.

Weddings in The Big Easy can easily go big, as New Orleans is a city of grand celebrations. The average cost of a wedding here is about $28,800, which runs about $1,000 below the national average. As you plan and look at wedding venues in New Orleans, keep an eye on your budget and remember that, if you want to, you can have a big party without spending big bucks.

Accommodations and Travel in New Orleans

The cost of accommodations in New Orleans can run on the high side since NOLA is a popular tourist destination. Depending on your budget, when you plan to tie the knot and what you're looking for, it's worth considering all your options. Choose from inns or bed & breakfasts, boutique or historic hotels and more. The closer you are to the French Quarter, the higher prices tend to be. If you're willing to move further away from the action, you can find affordable rooms around $50-$80. More upscale hotels and inns in the heart of the city will run between $150 to around $400 a night.

Even traveling via New Orleans' Louis Armstrong International Airport (MYS) sounds like fun. Since MYS is just 22 minutes on I-10 from the airport into the heart of the French Quarter, you won't have to wait long to start your revelry. You can take a shuttle, bus, taxi or pick up your rental car from the airport into NOLA. Once there, try out the oldest continuously operating streetcar in the world to explore the city.

New Orleans Weather

New Orleans is warm and wet, with a subtropical climate that brings about 5 inches of rain per month. Winters average between the mid-40s and 60s, while summers are sultry between the mid-70s and lower 90s. Spring and fall are lovely, averaging in the 70s. Between the humidity and frequency of precipitation, couples might consider New Orleans wedding venues that offer covered areas or provide indoor options in case the rain shows up. Luckily, rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck. Even if you hear the telltale drip-drop, you can bet The Big Easy will bring its good vibes to your union.

When you're ready to look for wedding venues in New Orleans, let us be your guide. We can help you find a venue, as well as guide you through other resources, with our planning tools for a wedding day that's perfect for you.
