My fiance and I have wanted to do a second line at our wedding from day one...but our idea of a French Quarter courtyard ceremony and then a separate reception has morphed into a St. Charles Mansion for both the ceremony and reception. Can we still do a second line?
My fiance really wants to, but I feel like it will be weird if there is no change of venue...what do we just walk around the block and come back again? Also, I know second lines don't take place only in the Quarter, but I feel like it is just not the same experince for the out-of-town guests (which are basically all the guests) to walk around in circles if we're not in the FQ. There is a lot more pedestrian traffic in the Quarter all the time, whereas parading around a mostly empty uptown street (even St. Charles, I feel is more car traffic than pedestrian traffic) will seem strange/pointless, especially to out-of-town guests that are not familiar with the tradition.
Is it still worth doing? Has anyone else had this issue and found a good solution, or had it work out/not work out? Thanks for any opinions/advice!
