(Closed) Are We Crazy to Plan A Honeymoon to New Orleans next August?

  • poll: Should we honeymoon in New Orleans next August?

    No! Your plane might fly apart in the air!

    No! The extreme heat and humidity will mean a crappy time for all!

    Maybe. If you can get past 100+ temps and daily afternoon downpours, you'll be fine.

    Absolutely! New Orleans is the shit no matter the weather!

    The only time I’ve ever been to NOLA was in July, and it was always hot in the day time , but honestly everything is air conditioned. I walked two miles from my hotel to the superdome twice a day, and to the convention center ( I was there for a conference) and it wasn’t too bad, it cools off enough in the night and its fun to bar hop in the day time or dip into shops for a refresher! Don’t let it ruin your plan!

    In August?  I wouldn’t, personally.  I lived in the Florida panhandle (so about the same weather wise) and…yeah August can get pretty awful.  Hot, humid, sweaty.  I’d only go if I could spend most of my time at the beach.  I went to Disney World once in July and it was god-awful.  If you can get past that then go!  Late September or October would be a lot better.  October is still warm enough you can lay on the beach but it isn’t awful out.

    It’s plenty hot/humid here too in Kansas and I wouldn’t want to spend a lot of time outside here in July or August either unless I was at a pool!  There’s a reason I like to take local summer vacations to Colorado.

    Rains never bothered me because it is only for like an hour and then it’s gone.

    • I live in New Orleans and YES it is very risky to plan your honeymoon here in August. I would not do it. my wedding will be here in Oct and my venue even offers a 10% discount if you book for the MontHS of August and September! That being said dont risk it! Not to mention…hurricane season will be full fledged.

    • Wedding: September 2015 - North NJ

    I went with my boyfriend to New Orleans (we are from NJ) 2 years ago in August for a week. We got a great flight deal and now we know why!


    It was hot. We didn’t have any problem with rain, but boy, it was really, really, really hot. I am not one to complain usually, and I am not one to be a “princess” about things, but we were really miserable some days. We took 3 showers a day. We went on a few tours and didn’t enjoy them becasue we would duck out of the walking tour to find a store with AC to stand in for 2 minutes before catching up with the group.


    That being said- I am SO glad him and I went. We have some great memories and we got a great price on everything. But, it was also a random trip for us, not  a honeymoon.
