My fiance and I will be traveling to New Orleans for the first time ever, Oct. 29th-Nov. 4th for a private wedding ceremony with close friends/family, then staying there for our honeymoon. We decided on New Orleans since we have both always wanted to go there and thought we would get married and stay for our honeymoon. We are planning on having our ceremony aboard the Creole Queen riverboat on Oct. 30th, then go to a celebration dinner later that evening versus having a reception on the boat.Trying to keep it simple but romantic and classy. We will also be attending one of the Halloween balls on Halloween(witches ball, vampires ball?) After that we will be on our own for our honeymoon.
Any budget-friendly recommendations on where to have a celebration dinner for a group probably no more than 10 people? Also, recommendations of affordable accommodations for my fiance and I as well as our guests in the French Quarter? Also hotel recommendations in the Garden District to spend our honeymoon for the two of us?
We also would like to do some tours, such as plantations, swamp, and cemetery. So any ideas on any good tours to go on would be fantastic.
Thank you so much!
