Down in the simmering bayous and wetlands, a beat pulses through the state of Louisiana. The family roots run deep here and so does an love of amazing cuisine and soul-freeing music. New Orleans is famous for its celebrations, but that joy of life can be felt throughout the state, including in the bustling towns of Shreveport and Lafayette.
Flavored with strong Cajun and creole influences, Louisiana sometimes feels like a place outside of normal time or convention. Maybe it’s the never-ending jazz crooning from every corner of New Orleans, the expectant hush of the swampland, or the glorious old plantations surrounded by massive, centuries-old trees. Or maybe the spirits of the past are just a little stronger here. Certainly, Louisiana residents love their moss-covered cemeteries and ghost stories. But as much as they appreciate the past, Louisiana residents are very much alive, jamming on trumpets, nibbling powdered beignets, and planning the next big shindig.
Let’s be clear that when looking for Louisiana wedding venues, you’ve got New Orleans and then you have everywhere else. The Big Easy is filled with potential venues, including the best hotels in the state as well as plenty of smaller inns dripping character.
Looking for a slightly non-traditional venue? Consider a restaurant wedding. This state loves its eats, and you can host your reception in historical restaurants as well as newer gastro pubs that put a new spin on famous Cajun dishes. If you do choose New Orleans for your wedding venue search, keep a close eye on your wedding budget. There are deals to be had, but this splashy city can also come with a commensurate price tag.
If you’re looking for a quiet or more cost-efficient wedding, broaden your search to towns like Layfette and Shreveport. You can find great banquet halls in these cities that can keep costs down. Finally, no Louisiana wedding venue conversation would be complete without mentioning the majestic plantations available. Plantations come with elegance, sophistication, and history all packed into one.
Before you make your final decision of a wedding venue in Louisiana, schedule a tour of your top choices. Seeing the venue in person makes a huge difference, and you’ll want to make sure the venue coordinator understands your vision. Before your tour, put together a rough guest list estimate so your venue coordinator can make recommendations on how to lay out the rooms and the tables and seating during the reception.
Don’t forget to ask about the down payment and when the payment is due. Finally, ask to take home a sample contract, so you can read it more carefully on your own time.
