New Orleans Brides please help! Desperate OOT Bride needs help on After Party
My wedding is November 9th and I'm trying to find a place where we can continue the party after the reception ends at 10:00 p.m. I am fine to pay something to guarantee space, but I cannot fund another party package (we are paying for welcome party, wedding and brunch). I really want the post party to be a cash bar. I thought I could rent a room at one of the bars on Bourbon Street, but most I have called said they will only do packages that start around $50 per person ($2500 minimum). I am fine with shared space and it doesn't have to be on Bourbon Street. I like dive bars as well as nice places. Really just looking for a place in the quarter that I can be sure there will be space for myself and appx. 50 friends (who will most likely be spending a LOT on drinks, so I can even do a minimum guarantee). Planning a destination wedding in New Orleans has been much more work than I thought. Any help in overcoming this last hurdle would be HUGELY appreciated. Thanks!!!
