Wedding Venues help

I recently got engaged and looking to plan a wedding on a budget. When it comes to a venue I would really love to find a place that is full of character but won't break the bank. I was wondering if anyone knows of a great location in the New Orleans area to hold a wedding ceremony and reception for a great price. Also, and has anyone ever found like a barn or something in that fashion?

    Yes, check out the Destrehan Plantation's Mule Barn.  This is where I am having my reception. The price is reasonable, they have an amazing caterer, and the coordinator is super helpful! I know you said New Orleans, but I don't think there is a barn venue any closer than Destrehan's. Check it out! It is extremely unique!

    Here is a picture of part of the inside. The barn is really long and there is a patio area with a cover that connects to the back. It can hold up to 300 people. They have wedding ceremonies under a giant oak usually, but I think they have them in the barn as well.
  • We used the Presidential Palace reception hall. The price was perfect, the owners were so nice they served SO MUCH FOOD! it's very pretty too! It's not a barn but its very elegant! The website is www.presidentialpalace.com Good luck!

  • It's not a barn, but it is a true Nola style venue.  

     I am using Margaret Gardens in the lower Garden District for my reception as we are getting married in Jackson Square.  I live in Virginia but found Margaret Gardens online and got a great deal.  My fiance' and I stopped by there last weekend and it really took my breath away!  The pictures on the website are true to form and Linda has been great to work with.   It made me even more excited about my wedding (if thats possible).


    Congratulations and good luck planning! 
  • I've been a wedding a Destrehan Plantation and the barn is stunning, especially if that's what you're looking for. You definitely won't go wrong there!
